Sometimes, budget restrictions or a lack of time can make you feel as if you’re never going to get your home up to the standard that you’ve always wanted it. However, it doesn’t mean that your dreams have to be shattered and that you have to live in a space that you no longer love. What you need to do, is take it room by room. Whether you add new flooring to your entryway or get out in the garden and made a difference, you can also do it all yourself. In fact, you can even get the bathroom of your dreams by dedicating just a bit of time to DIY.
Get Some Inspiration
The first thing you need to do to get yourself sorted is to take a look for some inspiration. When you’re time poor, you can often feel like you have no idea where to start when it comes to the design and decor. However, after a bit of research, you should have a better idea. So, the first thing you can do is take a look at some different bathroom design ideas online, scroll through Pinterest and even pick up some interiors magazines when you’re next at the store.
Rip Everything Out
When you know what kind of look you’re going for, you might be itching to install it. However, before you get ahead of yourself, you have the task of removing what you currently have. Once you’ve taken your belongings out of the bathroom, you then need to start ripping everything out. From the tiles on the wall to the toilet, it all needs to go before your new suite can be put in. If you only have one bathroom in your house, you may want to leave removing the toilet, shower, and washbasin until the day before you install your new suite.
Order In Your Suite
As soon as you decide on the new suite that you’d like to go with, even before you start ripping everything out, you need to order it. Sometimes you can get next day delivery, or even pick it up from a local store. But you need to make sure you know when it will arrive before you remove your current suite. Then, when you’ve got an empty bathroom and your new set is ready to go, you just need to install it. You may want to get a plumber to help here, or attempt it yourself.
Get The Plumbing Checked
If you do decide to do the plumbing yourself, before you add in the finishing touches, you should get a plumber to check over your work. It might be cheaper to install the suite yourself, but not at the risk of it going wrong. There are leak detection services available to help you if there is something amiss, but you’re going to want to get it right the first time if you can.
Add The Finishing Touches
And then, all that’s left to do is add the finishing touches. Whether you want to spruce up the walls with a bit of paint or add in some sweet nautical themed accessories, now’s the time to do. With the entire process only taking a few days, you may find that you finally have the bathroom of your dreams in no time at all.
