When it comes to remodelling any aspect of your home, we all know it’s cheaper to do it yourself. Or at least it certainly seems cheaper at first. However, the cost of DIY budget bathroom disasters often outweighs any savings you could make. If all goes well you may just save a few quid, but if things go wrong, it could cost more than double. Here are a few things we think you should consider before you begin a DIY bathroom remodel.
Have You Thought About the Layout?
You may have an idea of how you want your bathroom to look, and where you want everything to go. But have you considered the practicalities? As experienced bathroom designers, our team know what to look for when it comes to the layout of your new bathroom. Over the years we have seen many “before” bathrooms which have not been thought through. This is because the fault or flaw usually becomes apparent after all the work is complete. Using professional designers negates this risk completely. Here at Bathroom Studio Design, we show you a 3D CAD design of your new bathroom before installation begins.
How Much Do You Know About Plumbing?
We’ve all been guilty of Googling how to fix things around the home. Every dad and his tool kit now have access to a “How To” video on YouTube. But there is a big difference between picking up a few tips and tricks, to knowing how to plumb in a bathroom. That’s why we only use experts when it comes to installation. We have a trade specialist for each aspect of your remodel, from the plumber and electrician to the tiler. We even use a specialist mastic man! This is because we know a quality installation needs a lot of knowledge and experience.
What Will You Do if It All Goes Wrong?
You may spend less on a DIY bathroom remodel, but these are only two of the many things which can go wrong. From damp developing due to improper ventilation to flooding and leaks. It can be a perilous exercise without the right knowledge and expertise. Even with such experience problems can still occur. That’s why we offer a huge 5-year warranty on all the bathrooms we design and supply. Sometimes it’s worth spending the extra money to have the reassurance and quality.
