5. Make cleaning easyIn a busy household, the bathroom will probably see some wear and tear, so choose surfaces that are easy to keep clean and well maintained. Go for flat-fronted, handless cabinets, so dust and grime don’t gather around small details, and opt for wipeable tiles on the walls. Grout has a tendency to show up dirt, so large-scale tiles with minimal joints are a good option.12 Steps to a Deep Bathroom Clean That Lasts

4. Believing in the myth of the renovation-profit percentage templateMany inexperienced renovators believe in the existence of some kind of magic renovation-profit percentage template, such as spend $50,000 to make $150,000, and will try to stick rigidly to this. But percentage templates are unlikely to work, particularly given that prices for things such as trades vary across the country. Instead, ask yourself how much money you want to to walk away with from the renovation. Knowing this figure will tell you exactly how much you’ve got to spend.
