The bottom lineThe question of cost can be make or break for many homeowners, so it literally pays to be as thorough as possible before starting the process. Check if your builder’s quote includes a contingency cost covering any nasty surprises, which you may only uncover after the layers have been peeled back. And ask if these surprises will be treated as variations to your contract price. Double check your access too. If that three-metre-long benchtop doesn’t fit in your apartment lift or up the return in your dog-legged stairs and needs to be lifted in by crane, that could send your budget into overdrive.

Solution: Think quality and practicalityYour bathroom is one of the most used rooms in your home and you’ll probably want your renovation to last 10 years, so choose quality fixtures that will go the distance. Plus, a fabulous tap or showerhead can really add impact.When you reach the planning stage, think about all of the fixtures required in your bathroom, right down to the size and location of your towel rails and toilet roll holder. If space is small, think outside the box – built-in or wall-mounted fixtures and joinery, for example, will take up minimal space.
