Advice from Scotty: What you should think about before renovating your bathroom

Scott Cam's Top 5 Tips

Over the years I’ve seen even our most seasoned Blockheads come undone during bathroom week. Given I’ve done more than a few bathroom reno’s over the years I wanted to share with you 5 things everyone should think about before starting on a bathroom reno…

1. Have all your tradies in place, cause there’s a lot of trades involved in a bathroom reno!

2. Make sure your waterproofing is 100% waterproof and is authorised by a licensed water-proofer. 

 Water proofing is not a drippy matter Waterproof Wednesday! It's a thing, right?

Plan your bathroom out well in advance so you know exactly where everything is going and making sure that you’ve got enough room to sit on the toilet, enough room to swing a cat in the shower.

4. Make sure your tradies like your tiler, this is very important. And make sure your tiler has come recommended, as it’s very easy to muck up tiling, so make sure your tiler is a good one!
