Do you long for a new kitchen or bathroom but can’t bear the thought of all the upheaval? If this is how you feel then you are not on your own, though expense may come top of the list of reasons not to update your home, many of our customers browsing for new bathroom and kitchen tiles tell us that the mess, finding and organising various reputable trades people, moving furniture and emptying cupboards is what really got them in a fluster.
These projects are never going to be completely stress free, so here are five handy tips to help smooth the way:
First of all ensure that you are completely comfortable with anyone working in your home, friends and family recommendations are always a good option. Check references, qualifications and ask for photos of previous works completed wherever you can.
- Once you have found a kitchen or bathroom fitter that you trust you may find that they have a list of contacts that they can recommend for further jobs, such as tilers, plasterers, joiners and electricians.
- Look on the task of clearing out cupboards as a golden opportunity to de-clutter, throw out or recycle anything you don’t need or haven’t used in the last year. Anything you are not sure about pack away in a box, save for a year and if you don’t need to open the box you know you never really needed anything in it.
- Choosing new kitchen units, worktops, sanitary ware and tiles is something to be enjoyed not endured!
- Remember that the tradesmen taking over your home will only be there for a short time and once they have gone you will be left with a fabulous new bathroom or kitchen, complete with stylish new wall and floor tiles.
Of course we are slightly biased when it comes to choosing new tiles, but there is such a fabulous range of affordable kitchen and bathroom tiles around right now that we can’t help but be excited about our ranges.
