Before you renovate
Renovating your bathroom can be expensive, but together with a renovated kitchen can add substantially to your home's value.

Buy a few recent magazines and see what the latest trends are, and get an idea of what you would like your bathroom to look like.
The cost

This way he/she has a clear idea as to where they can go with the project. They will have a good idea of the limits when selecting materials and fittings.
Bathroom lighting
Lighting is important in all rooms, those bathrooms in the glossy magazines look so amazing, because the lighting has been designed to compliment the bathroom's features. If this means removing your ceiling and start from scratch, then consider it, if it falls in your budget.
What materials to use
