Modernization tips

Bathroom renovation made easy. For lasting comfort

Can your bathroom use some freshening up? Design, technology, and the expectations we have of bathrooms, are constantly changing. If you are concerned with questions about energy efficiency, there are many good reasons to renovate the bathroom and keep it up to date with the latest sustainable technology. Read this hansgrohe guide with a checklist for the things you need to keep in mind.

Guide for successful renovation of an existing bathroom

Let your ideas run free! The possibilities range from a "face lift" with fresh paint, better lighting and a modern hand shower to a stunning before-and-after effect. Even replacing a faucet can awaken a sink to new life. And it is almost as easy to install as a towel bar or shelving.

Think about the areas in which the bathroom needs to gain, and decide the scope of the renovation. Do you want to replace your old tiles with formats that create optical depth? Do you like the variety of mosaics as a visual accent? Do you actually prefer undressed walls? New finishes are a topic if you intend to replace your bath tub with a generous shower (or vice versa). Also, check to see whether your wishes match the floor plan. Do you want to make use of modern water- and energy-saving technology? A sanitation retailer can advise you on all of these matters.

Renovating based on the available budget

First, set a budget, but be ready to look at a “plan B.” After all, the professional advice offered by the retailer will show you options that you may not have considered before!
