It’s not uncommon to want to renovate your laundry to improve its functionality and to make it more modern. If you’re considering doing the same, let me assure you that you won’t be the only one.

But before you jump into renovating your laundry, it’s essential to plan ahead. I’ve heard way too many horror stories related to laundry renovations and would hate to hear another from you!

So, to help ensure that things go smoothly, today I will outline 4 things you need to know before you make a start. By following these tips, you can be sure that your renovation will run smoothly and stay on budget.

1. Decide on a budget and timeframe

Before you start shopping for laundry products in Perth, you first need to decide on a budget. Otherwise, spending can get out of control. You will find laundry products at all price points ranging from affordable to upscale. If you don’t create a budget, you’re sure to shop with your heart and not with your head.

Along with a budget, it is important that you decide on a timeframe for your renovation project. Think of how long you can go without a laundry and where the closest laundry matt is. If you don’t have alternate arrangements, then your renovation will need to be a quick one. Make sure to fully plan things out before you jump into renovating your laundry. It’ll save you a lot of headaches and unnecessary effort.

2. Consider your needs


Take a good look at your laundry space to consider what it lacks according to your needs. You may find that your space needs more storage in the form of cabinets or shelves. Or you may need to add new plumbing fixtures or outlets to your space.

Make sure to consider what your laundry space really needs before you start your renovation. Do understand that once renovation work starts, it will be difficult and/or costly to make changes.

3. Decide if you want to hire professionals

Depending on the extent of your renovation, decide whether you need to hire professionals or not. If you’re planning on moving plumbing fixtures or redoing the flooring, you will most likely need professional help.

On the other hand, if you’re only replacing the laundry cabinets or adding fixtures, you can do without professional help. For example, at Ross’s Discount Home Centre in Perth, our preassembled laundry cabinets come ready to be installed. Therefore, you could do without professional help and save on installation costs.

4. Don’t overcapitalise
