Planning your bathroom renovation with a reliable, experienced contractor is vital.
Ideally, you will first consult with the contract company’s interior designer, who will answer all your queries about your project.
Next, you will be keen to decide on your flooring. Which type would be best in your home?
Whether the space is a family bathroom or an en suite, the contemporary trend is large format floor tiles for their sleek, clean look.
Bathroom Floor Tiles
Porcelain tiles are made with kaolin, quartz and silica or feldspar. They are thicker than ceramic tiles and less porous, so are a good choice for bathrooms. An important factor is to make sure their surface is treated to be less of a slip hazard, as their vitreous component makes them smooth.
Some porcelain tiles are processed to have a ‘through colour’, which means the body colour is the same as the dominant background surface colour. If a chip occurs, it is less visible because of this ‘through colour’ process.
Always ensure that the grouting in your bathroom is sealed. Glazed tiles may be easy to clean but if grouting is not sealed it will become grubby.
Cabinets and Vanities
Supporting the streamlined look of large format porcelain tiles, a bathroom renovation demands storage that eliminates clutter.
Because cleanliness is key, the best option is to instal new cabinets, and they should be made of waterproof materials.
Renovators in Perth, Fremantle and surrounding areas are turning to award-winning Smart Style Bathrooms based in Subiaco, which has access to the vast choices of fixtures locally available. Its interior designers have the experience to know which cabinets and vanities offer sufficient storage, are built to last, have a design that will not date and are easy to keep clean.
Together, you and the interior designer will make a choice that suits your home’s style.
Why Quartz is Tops
The vanity top is a necessary part of that choice. Quartz is waterproof, environmentally friendly, has a smooth surface, does not stain, and does not need sealing. With the interior designer, you will enjoy finding the quartz vanity top that will complement your flooring in your freshly renovated bathroom.
Extractor Fan Size
Maintaining that feeling of freshness in your renovated bathroom will ideally come from being able to open a window and switch on an up-to-date extractor fan.
The strength of the extractor fan will depend on the dimensions of the bathroom, number of basins, whether there is a tub or jetted tub, separate shower, and toilet pedestal. Each has a measurement of air extraction that the extractor fan must handle.
Choosing Smart Style Bathrooms to do your renovation removes the headache of sourcing fixtures.
