Renovating Your Bathroom FAQs

Aylesbury Bathroom Centre FAQS

  • How to do your own bathroom renovation

    Start by assessing your existing bathroom and identifying your needs. Create a detailed plan and budget. Choose water-resistant materials and fixtures that match your style. Doing demolition, painting, and simple tiling yourself can save money. However, plumbing and electrical work should be handled by professionals. 

  • How to save money on your bathroom renovation

    Save money by retaining the existing layout to avoid expensive plumbing changes. Opt for mid-range rather than high-end fixtures and tiles and consider refurbishing existing elements such as baths. Shop around for materials and get multiple quotes for any professional services required. 

  • How to plan your bathroom renovation

    Begin with a clear vision of the desired outcome. Measure the space accurately and consider the best layout for functionality and flow. Choose a colour scheme and materials and plan the placement of key fixtures. Set a realistic budget and timeline and decide on DIY tasks versus professional hiring. 

  • How much money does a renovated bathroom add?

    A well-executed bathroom renovation can add approximately 3-5% to your home's value, depending on the quality and appeal of the renovation. It's a key selling point that can significantly influence buyer attraction in the UK property market. 

  • How much does it cost to renovate an ensuite bathroom?

    The cost of renovating an ensuite bathroom in the UK can vary widely, generally between £3,000 and £10,000, depending on the size, materials, and complexity of the project. High-end fixtures, bespoke features, and structural changes can increase costs. 

  • Do you need planning permission to renovate a bathroom?

    Generally, you do not need planning permission for internal renovations of a bathroom unless you live in a listed building or are making structural changes. However, compliance with building regulations, particularly for electrical works and plumbing, is necessary. 

  • What should I consider before renovating my bathroom?

    Consider the layout, functionality, and how the design will fit with the rest of your home. Think about water efficiency, the quality of materials, lighting, ventilation, and storage options. Also, evaluate the needs of all users, including any accessibility requirements. 

  • Can you give me some bathroom renovation ideas?

    Consider installing a walk-in shower, using large mirrors to enhance space, incorporating efficient storage solutions, and choosing a neutral colour palette with vibrant accents. Underfloor heating and luxurious tiles can add comfort and style. 

  • How should I decorate my small bathroom?

    Utilise light colours and large mirrors to make the space appear larger. Opt for wall-mounted fixtures to free up floor space. Consider using glass shower doors and tiles laid in patterns that elongate the space, such as a vertical stripe or herringbone pattern. 

  • How to decorate my bathroom like a spa

    Create a calming atmosphere with neutral, earthy tones. Add elements like scented candles, plush towels, and natural decor items like wood and stones. Consider a rainfall shower, a freestanding tub, and incorporate soothing lighting and some greenery.
