When it comes to a bathroom renovation the 3 most important things that you must focus on as practicality, functionality and it needs to be good looking. And there are lots of ways that you can do that. The first thing is to make sure that you have the layout right. I've seen too many bathrooms that have an extremely poor layout and what I can tell you is that no amount of cosmetic refresh is going to do them any good. So get the layout right. That might mean that you might need to change the plumbing - so be it. It's worth spending the money to get the layout right. And then look for ways you can actually save money. Tile paint the existing tiles if they're structurally in good condition. Hunt around for your fixtures and fittings. Source fixtures and fittings on online sites. There are so many ways that you can snag yourself a bargain to make sure that your renovation comes in under budget.
