The first thing to think about will be the overall theme. You can get the whole family involved and ask for everyone's opinion. If you have children make sure you take their input onboard. Taking some time to think about the theme you want to achieve makes it easier to pick out the correct colours, patterns and other bathroom accessories you will need.

When most people decide to have a makeover on their bathroom, the first thing that comes to their mind is a bathroom they saw on TV and they think that is the perfect bathroom for us, but in reality that bathroom was not designed for their situation. It no double looked amazing, with all the right colours, lightning and accessories but it was designed for people that have different lifestyles. A home with children in it is going to be different to one with a single person living in it. So it is essential to take a look at your situation and create a design that is both stunning and functional for you. There is nothing wrong with looking at other homes including homes belonging to famous people and trying to get ideas from it but you shouldn't try to have the same bathroom just because your favourite TV star has that bathroom. It will not only be very costly to furnish it with all the different items but it might not fulfil your needs.

You should clearly set a budget for the makeover; otherwise the costs can quickly spiral out of control. Decide on a figure you don't want to go past. Be realistic and include costs for labour and clean up at the end.

There is a lot that goes into redecorating a bathroom and above we have mentioned some of the things you need to think about before you get the job started. If you take some time to think about your needs, how much you want to spend, the different items you need to buy such as a new bath tub, electric towel rails, showers etc. your project will be successful and you will be enjoying a fantastic new bathroom in no time.
