Renovating bathrooms can be a tedious job. It requires planning and a professional approach. Renovating a bathroom may sound like a fun task but it can get overwhelming sometimes.

Here are some tips to getting you a budget friendly bathroom renovation:
Prioritise Your Bathroom Ideas
Make a checklist of the things you would like to change in your bathroom. Prioritise the checklist according to your needs and how much you would like to spend on each. Get an expert in to assess the state of your fittings. Does it need replacement or is your money better spent elsewhere? You can talk to expert bathroom renovators at Southern Plumbing to help you decide how to organise your checklist.
What to Spend On and What to Save On
Spending money on the shower and taps is better than spending on other things as they are used every day. Pipework and fittings are other areas where quality is important. You can focus on trying to get at least mid-range fittings and pipework. Anything going behind the wall needs to done properly as burst pipes and other issues post-renovation can mean cutting or ripping off the wall. Ventilation in New Zealand is really important, to prevent a mouldy bathroom. You can save on furnishings and add “extras” when your budget allows.
Focus on One Big Change
Instead of changing your bathroom completely, you can choose few things that you would like to change. For example, see whether you need to update your shower or install spa bath. Things like cabinets, mirror, tiles and floors play an important role in giving a particular look to a bathroom. You can give a complete new look by changing the vanity and floors for example.
