Bathroom design
Bathroom design could be the first part of your bathroom renovation you need to get right. Just replacing the current bathroom with similar design might not be enough. The key to great bathroom design is always to design it with all the folks that will put it to use planned. However make sure that a bath room design also offers an over-all use factor as well.

For example: If you were designing your bathroom for families you could still design the bathroom with easy accessibility for the shower and bath. This would be sure that the design would work if you have limited mobility. This means if you choose to sell your house or if you happen to be renovating for profit your design has a wider market appeal. Great bathroom design also uses space well, taking into consideration the sunlight or window space, sized fittings, and drainage options. Draw out an agenda to scale and right down the sizes of your room. Mark the existing drainage points and then and water inlet points. Write down a wish list of the bathroom fittings to require and desire using sizes. Now marry the two together to see what fits. Note: Most bathroom drainage and water inlet points might be moved but this may come at expense.

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 would be to measure and mark the pipe and wire layout onto your new wall board which has a pencil as you go. Screw up (or nail) the ceiling lining, plasterboard will be the most common. However if you happen to be laying your tiles from floor to ceiling don't install the cornice because done after tiling. If you're not tiling for the ceiling go on and install the cornice after the wallboard and ceiling lining have been installed. Also if your bath is just not freestanding anyone can form the frame and install the bath.

Step three - Waterproof your bathrooms
Waterproof your bathrooms floor, shower recess, and around the bathtub. When waterproofing the floor make sure that the waterproofing comes 100mm inside the walls. The shower recess must be waterproofed 100mm higher than the shower rose outlet. Also the tub needs to be waterproofed 100mm across the lip with the bath right around and on the floor. At the doorway use a 25 x 25mm aluminum angle glued into place with quality silicone and waterproof to the lip. Your whole bathroom should now the tanked, hence the all water will simply go lower a drain. Bathroom waterproofing tip: waterproofing is an easy job but quality and accuracy is most significant.
Step four - Lay inside cement screed for the ground.

Before the bottom tiles can laid the floor must be smooth and fairly flat having a slight fall to the drainage outlet. To do this you must use sand and cement mix in fact it is best to put in a waterproofing agent into this too. With a level, set the ground level at the doorway. Use the top aluminum angle because finished floor level and measure down the thickness from the tile plus 10mm for that glue. Mark right around the restroom using a level and then screed in your sand and cement mix with a 1 to 3 degree fall on the top of the drain outlet. Take your time and obtain it right with all the finished level as smooth as possible. When the sand cement mix has set but just isn't dry (you are able to walk onto it however, you it's still somewhat soft) rub it over using a house brick. This will remove all the small highs and lows and appearance which has a level as you go. Let the restroom floor fully dry then you must have an excellent surface to tile onto. Tip: greater work you put into the bottom screed the simpler your tiling will be.
