Bathroom Renovation Tips - Fixtures







Renovating the bathroom is one of the quickest and most effective ways to add value to your home or investment property.


Here are some tips to consider when renovating your bathroom: 








Sink - When installing a new sink, remember to plan for adequate “deck space”, which is the flat area around the sink. Deck space is used to set down makeup, toothbrushes, toothpaste, and other daily bathroom essentials.








Bathtub - If you are buying a new bathtub make sure try the bathtub in he showroom before buying it, to make sure you find it comfortable. If your bathtub is only slightly worn out you might want to consider refinishing it to restore its color and finish. If your bathroom layout allows, installing the taps and faucet in one corner will give you more room to recline in your bathtub.






Toilet - Toilets should be chosen for their practicality first and their appearance second. If your bathroom space is large enough consider installing an elongated toilet for more comfort. Toilets account for 30% of an average family’s home water consumption. Installing a water efficient toilet is a great way to reduce your home water consumption costs.
