There are many bathroom renovation ideas out there, such as altering flooring or walling, installing a new shower, sink or bathtub, and many more options.

Working Around Tiles, Pipes and Other Bathroom Hazards

One thing that makes bathroom renovations so difficult, is the hazards you have to work around. Tiling, piping and glass mirrors are just some of them. Damages to these can be at best costly and time-consuming, and at worst a disaster. There are few things worse than having a leaking pipe flooding your home – especially if your bathroom also contains electrical components.To avoid damaging these parts of the bathroom, it’s best to work with someone with professional experience. They will have both the tools and expertise to work around these hazards without causing damage.  

Staying Safe

When renovating a bathroom, safety should be a top priority, both throughout the renovation process and in the final result. Water, slippery surfaces, glass and electricity can be fatal when combined. One consideration is the use of non-slip flooring in shower or bathing areas to reduce the risk of slipping and falling. If your home includes people with mobility issues, it may be a good idea to install handrails as an aid.It’s also important to ensure that all electrical components are properly grounded and located in a dry area with no risk of splashing.By keeping safety a priority, you can ensure a safe bathroom both during and long after the renovation process
