Don’t be bound by your budget
It's possible to achieve a brand-new look for your bathroom and stay on budget. With some creative thinking, you can refresh your bathroom on any sized budget. The key is research and seeking advice from those in the know – whether that be a trades person, store employee or online resource.
Take every opportunity you can to see, touch and try before you buy.
Go into a store, order a sample and speak to a member of staff to get a real feel for the products you like the look of them in real life.
This saves the risk of buying something that you don't like and won't use when you come to installing your new bathroom.
If in doubt, ask an expert.
A trades person will know the ins and outs of the industry and will be able to help you make decisions based on cost, functionality and space.
Careful planning will help you save money on wasted time, and give you a clear plan to base your budget on.
