During COVID-19, people are stuck at home and the DIY bug is coming out in all of us! However, some things should not be done yourself, a Bathroom Renovation should be left to a professional. See some of the below mistakes we have stumbled upon recently and know what to avoid.
Wanting to create a fresh look by upgrading the tile work in your bathroom? Piling new over old ones can end up looking like the above. That's what we took from the floor! The new owners ended up with dips in the floor.
An in wall cistern is a very popular, modern look. Doing it yourself can end up looking something like above, using cheap plastic that will eventually leak.
Creating make shift windows.. if not braced properly like this one, a rainy day will end up on your bathroom floor! Taking short cuts might save you time and money for a few months, but ends up causing you more problems than you started with.
Old tiles need to removed from the floor and waterproofed in order to start fresh. Make sure you have a professional do this, a dodgy floor won't only look bad, it can cause hazards!
Professional installed in wall cisterns are a thick enclosure that are designed to last the test of time in the wall, and all fixtures and fittings inside these units are easily accessed through the buttons on the wall. Mickey Mouse specialise in these!
This is how a properly fixed window should look! Unfortunately, Mickey Mouse are constantly fixing up old DIY jobs that existing or new home owners are stuck with. Make sure you get the job done right the first time.
Bring life and personality into your bathroom with a bold colour choice. Consider tile colour, a feature wall and even a coloured ceiling.
Before getting ahead of yourself about all the little details, it is really important to consider the layout and figuring out the most important aspects to you whether this is natural lighting or easy access.
One of the trickiest decisions clients have when finalising bathroom renovations can be tiles. You need to consider the tiles for the floor, walls and sometimes feature spaces. First consider what type of feel you want to create, the colours you want to see, the size of tiles and whether you want textured or simple tiles.
Everyday house hold items such as baby wipes, dental floss and cotton tips can cause you a lot of inconvenience, time and money if you flush them down your toilet! Place a small bin in your bathroom to avoid ever needing to discard of something in your toilet that could seriously affect its function.
When cleaning the dishes, its easier to poor fatty oils and greece down the sink right? Sure, but not only is this going to pollute water and ultimately your air, it is going to clog up your pipes and eventually clog your sewage system! Avoid it at all costs.
Do you have a hot water unit? Make sure you are aware of the relief valve on the side of it that will relieve the pressure that is constantly building. Flicking the valve open every few weeks can save you hundreds of dollars and double the life of the unit.
