On the other hand, without any estimate of the budget, you may have to stop the bathroom during the process due to the financial problem occurred by purchasing expensive things.
According to changes required in the bathroom, plan the time that is required for renovation. Do not assume renovation time without any idea because if you assume the time 15 days but in actual you required 25 days then after 15 days renovation will look boring.
Sequence of work:
Set the sequence of work in order. This will make you renovation smooth, fast and the there will be no damage to the new thing. Like first remodelling of the roof then floor and walls, from where to start paint, fixtures sequence of installation etc.

Make sure the tiles are durable and long lasting. Select the design of tiles according to the image of your bathroom that you have made.
Lightning is very important for bathrooms. Bathroom look is incomplete without proper lightning. Lights should be bright enough to glow the whole bathroom. Avoid the dull lighting that is just enough for looking images but the corners of the bathroom remain dull and show shadows. Even mirrors are lighted in modern bathrooms like LED mirror, backlit mirror and led bathroom lighted mirrors.
Storage, cabinets, and shelves:
Many daily usage things need proper cabinets to hide. The things placed here and there make the bathroom look messy. Proper cabinets placed somewhere that are easy to access are required. Choose trendy cabinets that will complement the look of the bathroom and can hide all the daily usage things like toothbrush, paste, hairbrush, shampoo, conditioner etc.
Choose all the accessories new for your renovated bathroom. A new bathroom with old accessorize will destroy the whole look. Buy trendy new accessorize for your bathroom new soap dish, towels, towel rack, mirrors and bath mats. Make estimate to these and add in the total budget
