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.

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.

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.
