Bathroom design
Bathroom design may be the first area of a bath room renovation you need right. Just replacing the present bathroom with similar design may not be enough. The key to great bathroom design is to design it using the people that are likely to use it in mind. However make sure that your bathrooms design also offers an over-all use factor at the same time.

For example: If you were designing your bathroom for families you might still design the lavatory with easy accessibility to the shower and bath. This would make sure that the style would recieve treatment if you have limited mobility. This means if you sell your house or if you happen to be renovating for profit your design includes a wider market appeal. Great bathroom design also uses the area well, looking at the light or window space, size of fittings, and drainage options. Draw out an agenda to scale and all the way down the sizes of your respective room. Mark the prevailing drainage points then and water inlet points. Write down a wish set of the lavatory fittings to require 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 may be moved but this may come at expense.

Bathroom remodel
If you decide to accomplish the job yourself or part of the project it is time to employ a skip bin and pull out the previous bathroom. If your house appeared pre 1980 you could have fibro bathroom wall linings with asbestos in 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 local building authority or council about the regulation on bathroom asbestos wall lining removal.
Remove everything except the plumbing. If you keep the restroom plumbing available you do not have to turn the water off for the entire house. Also you will likely need to jack hammer the floor tiles up as well as the sand and cement bed that they're laid on.
