Bathroom tales - Purchasing hardware & fittings

One of the most common ways to improve the overall feel of a home (other than slapping some paint around) is renovating your bathroom. We spend so much time in our bathrooms or ensuite, it makes sense that it's the first thing many people change when they move into a new house, or spruce up before selling.

Something that many don't take into account is lead time when purchasing hardware and fittings (taps, cabinetry, bathtubs etc).

Generally speaking from start to finish/demolition to completion, a full bathroom refit including drying times for paint and tiles usually takes 2-3 weeks. However, this timeline can blow out to 2-3months if something doesn't arrive on time.

Suppliers often over promise, and over order stock to the point that clients are literally waiting for a container to arrive from overseas.

At Eye For Detail we pride ourselves in being able to help ease the stress around designing your bathroom. Obviously plans can change, but we urge our clients to purchase fittings, cabinetry and hardware prior to starting a project - it can be the difference between a great project, and an annoying one.
