Step 1: Gather ideas

The first step to planning your bathroom is to gather cloakroom inspiration ideas and get an average cost of your bathroom renovation. You can start by looking at beautiful bathrooms and creating a scrapbook of everything you love about them. If you have access to the Internet, take photos of bathrooms that inspire you and save them on your computer or phone so that you can refer back to them later. The best way to get ideas for your bathroom is by visiting showrooms and getting a feel for what’s available before deciding on anything in particular.

If there are no showrooms near where you live, look at bathroom design magazines from around the world; they will help give an idea of what is possible in terms of style, materials used and even cost (e.g., how much each type costs).

Step 2: Choose a bath or shower

The next step is choosing a bath or shower. Baths are great for relaxation and can be more practical for busy families, but bathrooms with showers may be better for smaller spaces. If you’re in a rush, a shower will get you clean faster than a bath (usually), not to mention that it’s easier to wash your hair in the shower.

However, if you’re looking for something more relaxing and soothing, then why not try out soaking in some hot water? Or maybe even have an hour-long soak every day before bed? We won’t judge if that sounds like heaven to you—just make sure yours isn’t too big so it doesn’t take up all of your bathroom space!

Step 3: Set a budget

The next step is to set a budget. This is an important milestone in the process, as it will help you avoid overspending on your new bathroom.

To start, you should create a list of everything that you want to be included in your dream bathroom and write down the cost for each item. From there, add up all of these numbers to get an approximate total cost for your project. Next, go through each item on the list and try to reduce any overpriced items that can be replaced by something less expensive (for example, instead of installing a $3,000 shower cabinetry unit made out of marble and gold-plated fittings throughout its interior surface area, opt for one that costs $600). To determine how much it would cost per square foot or meter depending on where your house/apartment building is located (it’s usually cheaper on land near coastlines because rent prices tend to decrease), use online calculators like Houzz’s Cost Estimator tool or similar ones found online.[1]

Step 4: Measure up

Now that you know the basic layout and dimensions of your bathroom, it’s time to measure up. Start by measuring the space in every direction. Measurements are key here: make sure you’re getting accurate measurements so that everything fits together properly when it comes to putting in the tiles.

You’ll also want to measure doorways and windows, as well as ceilings if they’re high enough or low enough for you. Keep in mind that if there are any pipes or wiring running under windows and doors, these may need to be taken into consideration when planning out your design before installing them later on (and remember not to forget about them!).

If there’s only one person working on this project then it might be helpful if they do all these measurements themselves; otherwise work together with friends/family members who have measuring skills so everyone can pitch in!

Step 5: Find a local showroom you trust

Finding a local showroom can be as simple as Googling “bathroom showrooms” and checking out the reviews. If you’re lucky, there will be a showroom within driving distance that has a selection of products to choose from. This way you can see the bathroom styles in person, which will make it easier to get an idea of what style works best for you and your family.
