How to approach refurbishing a bathroom

When a family purchases a house, unless it’s a new build, they usually want to change the kitchen and bathroom.  When changing the bathroom they will first of all:

  • assess the size of the bathroom
  • decide which types of sanitary ware they will wish to install
  • estimate the size of those items
  • consider  the doorway
    • how the room is entered
    • which way the door opens
    • whether that needs to be changed
  • consider the window
    • is it an opening window
    • will any sanitary ware installed affect the ability to open that window?
    • The window gives light and maybe people want light for example, an area for putting on make-up
