A Bathroom Renovations Melbourne might not look like an important project in the eyes of many. However, it is. Renovating your bathroom does not only improve the value and appearance of your home but also improves the health of your family. You can make improvements to the bathroom that improve the comfort, energy efficiency and hygiene of your family. While most consider a bathroom renovation a costly and arduous venture, Melbourne-based MW Homes suggests that it isn’t so. As the experts in Melbourne Bathroom Renovations we wish to provide a brief guide that will help you with your bathroom renovation project.
Create a Plan
One of the first things that you need to do before you start looking for renovation experts or materials is creating a comprehensive plan of action. A plan of action will help you figure out what needs to be achieved and what is necessary. The best way to go about it is to look back to your daily routine and identify layout features, designs or accessories that would enhance your convenience. It is also important to plan the storage areas and how they can be easily cleaned. These planning tips can help you save money and avoid overspending on your bathroom renovations.
Shower & Tub or Shower/Tub
This is one of the important factors to consider while both designing and renovating your bathroom. Typically standalone tubs and showers are rare in Australia because of the smaller house size and downsizing nature. However, for families that have kids a free-standing tub will be a great help. In fact, adding a standalone tub will be highly beneficial for property owners as they can add value to their rental houses in a kid-friendly region like Melbourne.

Curtains, Panes or None
Some people prefer curtains for their showers, while others prefer glass panes. And a bathroom renovation is the perfect time to change them if you don’t like your current shower setup. The important thing is to figure out what you like and what makes you feel most comfortable. An important point to keep in mind while selecting the panes and curtains is the maintenance factor. If you aren’t used to cleaning your shower and bath, make sure that you buy panes and curtains that are easy to clean and repair.
If you are in doubt, you can consult with a renovation expert to identify durable curtains and panes.
Minding the Material
In line with the previous point, maintenance should be one of the factors that needs to be considered while renovating your bathrooms. Be it your tiles or the walls, remember that the materials used in your renovation work need to be long-lasting and durable. While choosing the materials, you should also be mindful of who will be using the bathroom. If the bathroom will be frequently used by small kids or elderly people, you should choose materials that offer more grip and ensure that the finish doesn’t have sharp edges.
