Steps for renovating a bathroom
Once the room is stripped back to basics, the following steps are needed:
Electrician – The first stage of your bathroom renovation is to have your electrics safely in place. This is where you need to consider the following; what lighting fixtures you would like to have? Making sure your light installation is outside the damp and wet locations of the room etc. It is also important to many people today to include a ventilation fan in your bathroom in order to help reduce the moisture and any potential odours.

- Plumbing – Whilst walls are still bare, and the floor hasn’t been laid, the second phase to renovating your bathroom is the plumbing and making sure all water lines are running smoothly and safe. This includes drainage rough ins put in place which are to be connected to the main pipe, usually found underneath the floor. There are many laws and regulations which much be obeyed when doing this which is why you must have this carried out by a professional licensed plumbing firm.
- Plastering – Once the electrics and water lines are all safely in place, the walls and ceilings can be plastered. This is the part of the process where you gain your silky-smooth walls and ceiling. This job can also become very messy especially if adhesives are needed before applying the plaster which is why it is always recommended using a professional to carry out this stage. Once the plaster has been applied it is important to wait for it to be completely dry before tiling or painting. This very much depends on how much airflow passes through the room, the size of the room, and how much sunlight the room receives.
