Bathroom Renos Vs Kitchen Renos – The Key Difference!

There is no denying the kitchen and bathroom are two of the most common make-or-break rooms when buying a house. Remodelling either space can significantly influence how you function in your home. Given that they are wet areas, the process is relatively similar, so once you’ve experienced the first, the next room should come as less of a surprise. Starting can be overwhelming, so we’re going to have a look at some of the differences between a bathroom renovation and a kitchen renovation, to determine better where you’d like to commence. 

Knowing what to expect 

There are a few points to consider before committing to reconstructing an interior space. You need to understand exactly what you can expect from the project and how it will impact your day-to-day life. Budget can play a huge role when deciding where to begin. Each project is unique, of course, as with it brings its own expenses. Typically speaking, a bathroom renovation is far more affordable for numerous reasons, beginning with size and the simple fact of requiring less building material and fixtures. 

Another area to contemplate is functionality. Due to unserviceable circumstances, suppose one room is more desperate for a makeover than the other. In that case, you’re likely to be pulled in that direction as it becomes more than just a desire, rather turning into a necessity. If it isn’t a question of usability, then time is. The kitchen is a more sizable job therefore you would need to prepare to make other arrangements for a longer period of time, whilst also deciding whether it is practical for you in that given moment. Usually there is a second bathroom to utilise whilst the other is under construction, so in this instance, a bathroom renovation would cause less of a disturbance to the household. 

The final product 

Whilst cost and convenience are two major factors, desire tends to be a prevalent driving force, and many will apply themselves more if they are passionate about the final outcome. You need to first ask yourself the practical questions and then imagine what it would mean to have that particular space remodelled. 

Generating the most traffic and activity in the house, a beautifully designed kitchen can completely transform the ambience of the entire home. It is where you cook and entertain, therefore the impact would be significant. From a sleek new splashback to flawless cabinets, impressive appliances to stylish new fixtures, the kitchen provides an extensive canvas upon which to create a truly stunning space. 

On the other hand, the bathroom may occupy less, but it is a personal space that can influence your mood for the rest of the day. The possibility of a harmonious and tranquil retreat in the comfort of your own home is difficult to pass on. From a romantically lit bathtub to beautifully designed storage, a cohesive bathroom can be precisely the refreshment a stressful day requires beneath a spacious benchtop.
