Bathroom design
Bathroom design is the first section of a bath room renovation you need to get right. Just replacing the current bathroom with the same design is probably not enough. The key to great bathroom design is to design it using the people who will utilize it in mind. However make sure that a bath room design also offers a broad use factor too.

For example: If you were designing your bathroom for families you could still design the bathroom with quick access to the shower and bath. This would make certain that the structure would recieve treatment for those who have limited mobility. This means if you decide to sell your own home or if you are renovating for profit your design carries a wider market appeal. Great bathroom design also uses the room well, taking into account the lighting or window space, size of fittings, and drainage options. Draw out an agenda to scale and right down the sizes of your room. Mark the existing drainage points after which and water inlet points. Write down a wish report on the bathroom fittings to need and need making use of their sizes. Now marry both the together and find out what fits. Note: Most bathroom drainage and water inlet points could be moved but this may come at extra expense.

Bathroom remodel
If you have chosen to perform the job yourself or part of the job it is time to work with a skip bin and take out the old bathroom. If your house was developed pre 1980 maybe you have fibro bathroom wall linings with asbestos within it and great care will need to be taken. You will need some full body disposable overalls, eye protection, and quality dust mask. Check with your neighborhood building authority or council in connection with regulation on bathroom asbestos wall lining removal.
Remove everything except the plumbing. If you keep the lavatory plumbing in place you'll not need to turn the water off for the complete house. Also you should jack hammer the ground tiles up and the sand and cement bed that they are laid on.

Paint ceiling and final  one - Plumbing and electrical
At now brand new plumbing is installed for clean cold and hot water and drainage. Careful attention should be taken when positioning the newest plumbing so your plumbing fittings are correct once the tiling is fully gone. For example: To centre a fitting in the shower recess you should take into account the thickness with the wall board, tile glue and tile hence the fitting will be centred after the tiles are set up. The same relates to installing drainage pipes for a toilet; the wall lining and tile thickness must be considered and so the pipe is incorporated in the correct position in the event the toilet is installed after tiling. Also rough within the any new electrical wires without connecting them towards the mains power.

Step two - Install wall and ceiling linings
Install your 6mm wall lining being careful to nail the fibro board every 150mm without nailing into the new pipes and electrical wires. The best way is always to measure and mark the pipe and wire layout on your new wall board which has a pencil when you go. Screw up (or nail) the ceiling lining, plasterboard may be the most common. However if you might be laying your tiles from floor to ceiling usually do not install the cornice because this is most effectively achieved after tiling. If you are not tiling on the ceiling proceed to install the cornice following the wallboard and ceiling lining are already installed. Also if your bath is not freestanding anyone can make up the frame and install the tub. Ensure the tub is installed correctly permitting the thickness with the tiles and  sure to check on all linings and pipes before you continue with your bathrooms renovation.

Step three - Waterproof your bathrooms
Waterproof your bathrooms floor, shower recess, and around the tub. When waterproofing the bottom make certain that the waterproofing comes 100mm the walls. The shower recess will have to be waterproofed 100mm over the shower rose outlet. Also the tub should be waterproofed 100mm across the lip in the bath around and on the floor. At the doorway install a 25 x 25mm aluminum angle glued into place with quality silicone and waterproof in the lip. Your whole bathroom should now the tanked, and so the all water will only go lower a drain. Bathroom waterproofing tip: waterproofing is a simple job but quality and accuracy is most crucial.
Step four - Lay within the cement screed for the floor.

Before the bottom tiles can laid the ground have to be smooth and fairly flat with a slight fall on the drainage outlet. To do this you have to use sand and cement mix in fact it is better to include a waterproofing agent into this also. With a level, set the ground level with the doorway. Use the top aluminum angle because the finished floor level and measure on the thickness in the tile plus 10mm for the glue. Mark about the restroom having a level and then screed inside your sand and cement mix with a 1 to 3 degree fall on the top from the drain outlet. Take your time and obtain it right using the finished level as smooth as is possible. When the sand cement mix has set but just isn't dry (you are able to walk into it however, you will still be a lttle bit soft) rub it over which has a house brick. This will remove all of the small highs and lows and check with a level when you go. Let the restroom floor fully dry after which you needs to have a fantastic surface to tile onto. Tip: the harder work you place into a floor screed the easier your tiling will probably be.
