Best Bathroom Renovation Tips for 2023

The bathroom is one of the most used rooms in any home. This is the first room you enter after you wake up and the last one you visit before bed. It’s there to support your basic hygiene needs, and biological needs, as well as give you plenty of opportunity to relax and enjoy some pampering. So how can you improve your bathroom in the upcoming year? Here are a few awesome bathroom renovation tops for 2023 that will turn your bathroom into a lovely spa.


Create a budget

In 2023, it’s safe to say that very few of us will be comfortable going into significant expenses without a direction, no matter your finances, having a clear budget is a great way to steer your bathroom renovation in the right direction and not get carried away. When creating your budget, keep a few questions in mind: Are you planning to sell soon? Are you planning to change the location of the plumbing elements? Are there any essential items you need in your bathroom? How much money are you ready to invest? An average bathroom remodel has a solid ROI of about 70% but it’s still best if you’re renovating with you instead of future owners in mind.


Focus on the shower


If you have the space and small kids to play in the tub, then a freestanding tub might be a great addition to your bathroom in 2023. However, if you don’t have kids and can’t spare the space for both a tub and a shower, choose the latter. A walk-in shower will greatly improve your mornings and evenings, especially if you up the size of the cabin. When you can turn comfortably inside and make space for all your products, every shower will be a doozie. If you live somewhere drought-prone like Australia, you might also want to improve your hot water unit and ensure no water gets wasted. Luckily, with Chiswick plumbing services at your disposal, your water heater and all other plumbing issues can be easily fixed. 


Tile the shower

If you only have money for one design change in your bathroom, try adding some interest to the shower design with interesting tiles. By tiling (or retiling your shower), you can create a whole new vibe of the space for very little money. And tiling can even be DIY-ed so expect even better savings. In 2023, unique tiles will be a huge hit so consider different styles, from minimalist deep cobalt blue metro tiles to whimsical Moroccan patterned tiles.


Add some interest to the floors

You’d be surprised how much of a difference an interesting floor can make in your bathroom. In 2023, patterned floor tiles will be very popular, especially in bathrooms with a minimalist and simple scheme. If your house has even the slightest hint of vintage in it, you can tie everything together with Victorian-style flooring tiles. Combined with simple metro tiles, these interesting floors will pop and help create an illusion of a much bigger and taller space.


Go big with mirrors

Most people make a big mistake when adding a mirror to a small bathroom, thinking they need to be proportional. A much more effective idea is to oversize your bathroom mirror and create an illusion of extra space. In 2023, expect to see plenty of stylish frameless mirrors (with heated pads to prevent fogging) covering an entire wall.


Take the smart route

We’ve been filling out homes with smart tech for quite some time, greatly neglecting bathrooms. In 2023, make sure to add some high-efficiency smart gadgets to your bathroom and make it easier and more enjoyable to use. If you’re a smart home tech fan, consider installing a waterproof TV with a built-in hi-fi system. There are also plenty of smart lighting options to set the mood, as well as automatic blinds and bath fillers. These need some planning, though, because you’ll need some extra wiring.
