    Your Quick Guide to Planning Bathroom and Laundry Renovations

    Bathroom and laundry renovations can be a great method to optimise the space in your home. Thanks to the power of technology and recent innovations in appliance design, washing machines and driers are much more compact and efficient. As such, many people are opting to house their laundry appliances in their bathrooms. Although there are costs for extra for wiring and plumbing, keeping your wet washing limited to the confines of the bathroom makes a lot of sense.

    Are you looking for renovation ideas to combine your bathroom and laundry? Let this quick guide help design a bathroom and laundry combo to suit your space.

    The Initial Steps to Planning Your Bathroom and Laundry Renovation

    Whether you’re conducting bathroom renovations in the Northern Suburbs or anywhere else in Adelaide, there are a few things that should be considered.

    As there will be limited room, the first consideration should be to plan for maximum functionality. Particularly, it is important to ensure that the space is still functional. If you’re struggling because of space limitations, think about going vertical. You can do this by adding different kinds of cabinets (wall cabinets, tall cabinets, floor cabinets and more) and shelving.

    Another thing to consider is what bathroom-and-laundry style would suit the space and your home’s overall aesthetic. Needing inspiration? Our experienced team are happy to discuss and share ideas.

    Another thing to think about is the colour scheme. while pure white is a classic option, it might be worthwhile considering something with colour. You could even add some accents, like wood grain cabinets, to maximise the impact of your space and spice things up a bit.

    Measure Your Space

    When planning your laundry renovations in Adelaide, engaging with a renovation specialist can help make your vision a reality. However, they will be limited with what they can do without having measurements of the area.

    Measurement is among the most important parts of the renovation process. We know it can be difficult, especially when you’re doing it for the first time. So, here’s a quick list of what you need to measure:

    • Wall to wall. Firstly, you need to get the measurements of the whole room. Ensure that you make room for tile if there is no tiling yet.
    • From the floor to the ceiling.
    • Measure your doors and windows and note where they are located
    • Note where your existing light fixtures and power points are.
    • Note other infrastructural features of the room (access points, radiators, etc.)

    Conceptualise the Layout

    During this step, you need to consider these things as you plan your laundry-bathroom combo:

    • Access points for the renovation. Where will your new items enter the room?
    • The functionality and aesthetics of the space.
