Tips for planning a bathroom renovation
Look at the big picture
Set a budget
Are there regulations in place that affect your plans? Some council areas have limits on shower head flow rate, or specific wastewater disposal laws. A professional contractor will be aware of these requirements and offer solutions within the scope of the law.
It’s worth noting the Queensland Plumbing and Drainage Regulation 2019 specifies that major work cannot be carried out by an unlicensed individual.
Know where the water supply lines and wastewater removal pipes are located in your bathroom. This may change where you place new fixtures or impact the installation of vanity and storage cabinets. TMP Civil Services are experts in bathroom renovation and can assist with this.
