While this topic is on the less inspiring side of renovation planning, it’s essential to get all your tradespeople in the space and talk floor height; you want your bathroom’s floor to integrate seamlessly with existing flooring. Ask your tradespeople for their recommendations to help you get what you want (even if it means lowering the bathroom floor), and make sure that you supply all of the information to help them, including the thickness of your tiles.
Floor wastes are an important component to establish early in the process. Work with your plumber and tiler to figure out how to approach, as the tiles you choose could have an impact on where the underfloor plumbing will go. Look to conceal floor wastes under a wall hung vanity, away from eye height, or plan for installing a strip waste by bringing tradespeople across such features early on.
