Follow these simple steps to get your project done.



Set a budget

  • It all comes down to money. First you’ll need to decide how much you can afford to spend.
  • Set yourself a limit, and stick to it.


STEP 2.1:
Decide what you can afford

  • Now’s the time to decide exactly what you’ll be needing for your makeover.
  • Price it all up, and make sure it fits in your budget.
  • It’s also important to decide what you can do yourself, and if you’ll need to use a tradesman at any stage. This will also need to be budgeted for.

TIP: Moving any power or plumbing can take a large proportion of your budget, so replacing like for like is best.


STEP 2.2:
Tradesmen Tips

 Sometimes it’s best to let an expert do anything you’re not confident doing yourself. This is a must when dealing with plumbing or electricity. Here’s a few tips: 

  • Choosing someone local can reduce travel costs.
  • Look for recommendations from friends or family.
  • Get 2 or 3 quotes to compare prices.
  • Be clear about the job you need done and the timeline.
  • Ensure they are registered and qualified.


Draw up a floor plan

  • Measure your bathroom.
  • Draw a floor plan of your room.
  • Include doors and windows.
  • Mark in power and plumbing outlets.
  • Draw in any makeover items like vanities, towel rails, mirrors, etc and see if they’ll fit your space.


Buy items and materials

  • Now you’ll know what you can afford, and if it will fit in your bathroom. So it’s time to go shopping.
  • If you know exactly what you want can order online right now and choose delivery or click and collect.
  • If you need more advice about products, our team in-store are ready and waiting.

TIP: Use our handy calculators to figure out any quantities of materials you might need.


Get it done

  • If you’re using tradesmen let them know you’re ready to go, and book them in.
  • If you’re doing anything yourself, our Easy As guides below will help you get the job done, step by step.
