Are you embarrassed by the state of your bathroom? Is it covered in mould and other unpleasant fungi? Well there is no better time than now to renovate.

First things first, it is essential that you find a reputable plumber. Make sure you contact their references in order to ascertain their level of professionalism. It is also a good idea to pay the fee partially upfront and save the rest for after completion.

Keep in mind that when a plumber tries to talk you out of something you bought it is a sign that he may not know how to install it.

Also, look for ways to save on water with new water-efficient sinks and toilets. Another great tip is to install a hand shower for convenience.

Finally, if you are unsure on how to proceed in terms of designing your bathroom, consulting an interior designer would be a good idea – even if the project is a small one.
