Renovating a bathroom is probably one of the most difficult rooms in the house to undertake major renovation. It involves several trades and if you let your hair down, can prove to be very expensive, but well worth it.

Bathrooms and kitchens are where you can spend big to get a great look. Looking at the finished product however, it can be worth spending a little more to get the ultimate glamour look.

Planning is key to doing it well. Bathrooms are complicated spaces. When you do the layout, you should consult a plumber so you can understand how much it’s going to cost if you need to relocate the major features.

If you can work with the existing configuration, you’re going to save a lot of money giving you opportunity for other glamorous fittings.

To get a truly individual and glamorous finish, don’t shy away from custom-made products if they fall within your budget.

You might think it a costly addition, but underfloor heating is a must if you are looking for that glamourous spa feeling. Nothing beats a nice warm bathroom on a cold day. Under floor heating dries the floor quickly and can be cost effective.

Lighting also plays an important role in providing the bathroom with a glamorous look.
Include feature pieces that will stand out. A great shaped bath gives a bathroom that extra appeal.

Finally, add stone. Not everyone can afford stone, but if you can put a stone feature somewhere, the flooring or benchtops for instance, it will make a room look great and a place where you want to keep going back to.
