I would like to renovate my bathroom, but where do I start?

1st Nov, 2021 | Bathrooms
Bathroom renovations of any scale can be overwhelming; we often have clients who say they have seen so much, and they don’t know where to start, but that’s okay because there is no right or wrong way to go about them. Here at Warner’s, we do know where to start and that’s why we are here to help.

Visit a showroom: This is one of the best starting points for anyone, especially if you are new to bathroom renovation; because it helps to give you the basic insight into what really is possible. Showrooms are designed to showcase the wide range of options you have no matter the size of your space, all whilst looking and feeling as realistic as possible; allowing you the chance to simply imagine the products in your own home. As a business with a showroom, we are a little biased, but we know that seeing an image on a screen isn’t the same as seeing a product in real life – you can feel the texture of a tile and see the way a light can reflect off a surface enhancing a room. Here at Warner’s, we have lifestyle displays where you can truly see the bathroom as it could be in your home. But the best point is, there are design consultants around that know how to help you create  the bathroom of your dreams.

Measure your space: Measuring your room and the important elements of the room such as doors, and windows are an important part of your renovation. This is the only way to know what is practically possible, the size and shape of your bathroom will influence everything from the size of your tiles to whether you choose a shower enclosure or a wet room style shower. This is the simplest and most practical suggestion we can give anyone thinking of renovation; because ultimately you can’t make any sort of decision without these vital measurements, why not visit our measuring guide on our website for more information at https://warnersinnovations.co.uk/measuring-guide/ Or if you are visiting our showroom we can provide you with a measuring guide and talk you through all the content that is needed.

It’s also a good idea to make sure you know what type of heating system you have (combination/unvented/gravity), as professionals will ask, and this is important when choosing products such as taps and showers in making sure that the water pressure will work well with the system you have.

Creating your dream room together: At Warner’s we believe the design stage of your project is fundamental, much like the foundation of any building. Therefore, once you have sent or provided us with your measurements and pictures, we can advise you what is possible, and what is not. This avoids any unwelcoming surprises later down the line and helps the dream begin to feel more of a reality.


Brochures: Brochures are a great way to see a wide range of products from different suppliers; they enable you to compare like for like products to find the best one for you. You can take them home and look through without any pressure, show them to the whole household, and mark anything you like. The key with these though is not to get too many – because whilst a range of ideas is great, wading through too many can give countless options and choice which can be overwhelming. This is also why we have compacted our own handout with our top products picked by our expert designers to help you find the right products for you.



Get a design: Here at Warner’s this is a service we find is often the best way for us to help our clients. Enabling you to see a realistic view of your future space, with chosen products, design details, and accurate measurements; gives you the opportunity to find out if everything looks as good in reality as it does in theory. The best part being, if there is something that you don’t like, you can change it – you can swap your plain floor tiles for wood effect, change the position of your vanity to be closer to your radiator, or maybe even the colour – there are some things that aren’t always possible after you have bought your products and the installation has started. *Did you know we offer a full CAD service?
