俗话说“隔行如隔山”装修是一门学问,特别是在实践过程中很多业主都不懂,但是该注意的还是要注意,不能光依赖装修师傅。那么,新房装修哪些事项是广大屋主一定要重点注意的呢?今天小V就给大家总结下由多伦多的十五年老师傅归总的10大装修省钱秘籍与装修流程分享给大家。

 

前期设计 装修前必须要对自己的房间进行一次详细的测量:

1.明确装修过程涉及的面积。特别是贴砖面积、墙面漆面积、地板面积等;

2.明确主要墙面尺寸。特别是以后需要设计摆放家具的墙面尺寸。

结构变动 进入施工阶段,隔断结构拆改是第一个项目,主要包括拆墙、砌墙、修补墙面、更换门框、窗户等。

水电改造 水电路改造之前,主体结构拆改应该基本完成了。在水电改造和主体拆改这两个环节间,还应该进行橱柜的测量与样式挑选:

1.油烟机管道的尺寸与油烟机排量的配比; 2.自来水阀门的位置是否合理可随时开合; 3.上水口的位置是否便于以后安装水槽。

水路改造完成之后,最好紧接着把卫生间的防水做好。

木、瓦、油

木工、瓦工、油工是施工环节的“三兄弟”,基本出场顺序是:木、瓦、油。其实像包管道、做装饰吊顶、贴石膏线之类的木工活从某种意义上说也可以作为

 

 

贴瓷砖与石材

在贴瓷砖的过程中,还涉及以下三个环节的安装: 一.大理石台面的安装 二.下水设施的安装 三.橱柜的制作基本完成 

 

省钱秘笈 1 在原有基础上进行改造 如果是二手房装修的话,可以考虑在原有基础上进行装修改善,例如防水层完好的话可以不用再重新铺设一层,只需要在不影响层高的基础上铺设一层新的地面即可。

2 用实木贴面代替实木 实木和贴面到底哪个高档,有时更多的是根据工艺来决定,而对于它们的使用,也要根据具体情况来选择。

3 地下室用地毯 地面的装修经常费时而且花费较大,如果你不是追求全体统一的风格,地下室安装地毯是一个不错的选择,因为会让整体感觉更加温暖。

4 粉刷是让房间迅速焕然一新的最好方法 如果肯花些心思在墙面涂刷上,可以打造一种与众不同的效果,选择一个活力四射的颜色和别致的装饰,可以让房间顿时出色起来。

5 选用贵重的材料要用到地方 在选用贵重的材料时你可以巧用心思,因为支出的多少与品位的高低不一定成正比。比如大理石,在浴室里你可将它用在重要的地方,而在次要的地方选择瓷砖以降低你的成本。

6 顶尖的物品提升家的品味 其实顶尖的东西并不需要太多,只要一件家居或者设施极具品位,就足以提升其他不是很高档村质或用具的档次。

7 根据家里的情况选择设施 以“舒适”为原则,在装修时应抛弃那些样板间里设定的尺度,根据实际情况来制定。

8 好好利用原来家具 决定扔掉老家具的时候要好好想想,也许它只要稍微修饰和改变,就能继续陪伴着你和你的家人。

9 不要选择廉价商品 对于饰品一定要精挑细选,因为它们是最能体现你个性的东西。所以还要是比较特别的饰品来装扮家。

10 用百叶窗代替窗帘 如果家里的装修风格比较现代或者偏向于中性的话,可以选择用百叶窗来代替窗帘,对于年轻人来说,还可以在上面绘制一些自己喜欢的图案来彰显个性。

When working on a bathroom remodelling project, you just can’t afford to go wrong. Sometimes even a small error can result in a disastrous mistake. And with all that money and work you put in it, you can’t let it all go to waste. You can always get some help from a qualified professional but doing it on your own makes it more fun.

So just to get you started, here are a few things you need to know before you starting ripping off those tiles.

Calculate Remodeling Cost

Now that you’ve finally decided to replace that old sink and swap the old bathtub with a more stylish one, you do need to consider what damage all of this splurging will do to your bank account. You can be sure that a bathroom remodelling can deplete your funds significantly but not if you shop smart.

So how can you calculate the remodelling cost? Take into consideration the size of your bathroom, the quality of the materials you intend to purchase and also, whether you’d need help from a qualified professional or not. When you have all these costs jotted down on a notepad and the total amount doesn’t make your eyes pop out, you’re good to go.

Consider bathroom dimensions

You didn’t measure your bathroom dimensions and now you’re stuck with a bathtub that’s too big! You have to consider bathroom dimensions before you go shopping or else you’ll find yourself in a somewhat similar situation.

This is a really important step, especially if you have a small bathroom. You’d already be looking for accurately sized fixtures and even an inch is enough to mess up your whole planning. You can opt for storage solutions to increase your bathrooms storage capacity.

Sink height and position

Normally, countertops are placed about 32-34 inches above the floor. Of course, the measurements would vary for people who don’t have an average height. Do consider this factor or you can get stuck with a countertop that doesn’t suit your bathroom style. The sink you choose will also affect the height of the countertop. Mostly sinks would just add another few centimetres, but with sunk-in sinks, you wouldn’t have to worry about that.

Sink position is important for your bathroom’s style, especially if you have a small bathroom. You can always opt for corner sinks. They not only look stylish but also save space. With small bathrooms, you may experience movement space problems and that’s where corner sinks come in.

Buy a few expensive materials

People with a limited budget may not be happy about buying cheap materials. Who says you have to invest heavily to make your bathroom look expensive? As long as it fits your budget, you can invest in a few high-end materials. Opt for cheaper but good quality tiles and splurge on an expensive toilet or tub. The tub is a better option though. After a long day at work, you’d love to unwind with a hot bath.

Buy cheap tiles but add a few mosaic or expensive tiles randomly. This way you can make the wall look artsy and also get a bit of colour.

Shower Storage

Yes, you may have a vanity that accommodates all your things but wouldn’t it be more convenient if you have shower storage? Once you get thinking about it you’d love the idea. Although cheap, plastic shower storage units are practical, they will definitely not go with your stylish bathroom. A cheap but attractive option is the ceramic tile shelves. They can easily be installed in the corner of the shower and are super handy.

Or if you want something even better, go for the build in the wall shelves. Although it’ll take some extra work they give your bathroom a modish look. Use tiles on it and hey presto! An attractive alternative to plastic units is ready.

Invest in a convenient Vanity

Storage space in your bathroom is a must and so be careful while choosing a vanity. You’d have to keep in mind the dimensions or you might get a vanity that crams the whole bathroom. A smaller vanity will have you searching for other storage options.

How long your vanity lasts depend on its material. If you choose the wrong material, you’ll have to spend more just to get it repaired. Go for a durable material that doesn’t require too much maintenance. So invest in a convenient and practical vanity or else all your hard work will go down the drain.

Get good lighting

Skimping on ambient lighting for your bathroom is non-negotiable, you just can’t do it. The whole purpose of bathroom remodeling goes down the drain if you don’t invest in some good lighting. Add warm recessed lights in the bathroom, just not near the mirror. You can opt for a vanity mirror with lights. This will give your mirror a Hollywood look but then again, go for a lighting option that best suits your bathroom style. If you have a shower, get a waterproof fixture. They just look great.

Be patient

This might be the hardest thing to do. After months of planning and getting ideas from home renovation sites, you’d be ready to get started on this newest project. But wait! Being hasty might mess up the whole process and of course, you wouldn’t want that, would you? The moment the bathroom tiles get delivered, you start ripping off everything in the bathroom. This can be inconvenient and extremely frustrating if the other material doesn’t arrive on time. Just wait till everything arrives and then you can get to work.

Just remember that a remodelling will not only craft a beautiful bathroom but it will also boost up the value of your home. So invest carefully, select the best material you can, within your budget and the rest is up to you. Have fun!
