Are you considering a bathroom renovation? Whether it’s a simple refresh or a complete overhaul, understanding the timeline of the project is crucial for a smooth and stress-free experience. In this guide, we’ll take you through the typical stages and durations of a bathroom renovation, so you’ll know exactly what to expect. Additionally, we have discussed common renovation mistakes to another article that you can refer to and read.
Step 1: Planning and Design (1-2 Days)
The first phase of any bathroom renovation project is planning and design. During this stage, you’ll work closely with our design team to outline your vision, choose materials, fixtures, and discuss the layout. Depending on the complexity of your project, this phase can take anywhere from two to four weeks.
Step 2: Demolition (1-2 Days)
Once the design is finalized and permits, if required, are obtained, it’s time for demolition. This is the phase where the existing fixtures, tiles, and other elements are removed to make way for the new. In most cases, demolition can be completed in one to three days, depending on the size of your bathroom.
Step 3: Plumbing and Electrical Work (3-5 Days)
After demolition, plumbing and electrical work are next on the agenda. This includes rerouting pipes, installing new plumbing fixtures, and ensuring the electrical systems are up to code. This phase typically takes one to two weeks, again depending on the complexity of your project.

Step 4: Structural Changes (If needed) (3-8 Days)
If your bathroom renovation involves structural changes like moving walls or altering the layout, this phase can add an additional one to two weeks to the timeline. Structural work is critical for ensuring your new bathroom is safe and functional.
Step 5: Installation of Fixtures and Finishes (3-5 Days)
With the plumbing, electrical, and structural work completed, it’s time for the exciting part—installing the fixtures and finishes. This includes everything from tiling and flooring to cabinetry, countertops, and lighting. Depending on the complexity of your design and the availability of materials, this phase usually takes two to three weeks.
Step 6: Final Touches (2-4 Days)
As the renovation nears completion, attention turns to the final touches. This includes paint touch-ups, adding decorative elements, and ensuring everything is in perfect working order. Final inspections are conducted during this phase to address any remaining issues.
Step 7: Cleanup and Handover (1-2 Days)
Once the renovation is complete and you’re satisfied with the results, the cleanup and handover phase begin. Our team will thoroughly clean the space and make sure it’s ready for you to use. This typically takes one to two days, depending on the size of the bathroom.
In conclusion, the timeline of a bathroom renovation can vary depending on the scope and complexity of the project. On average, you can expect a bathroom renovation to take around 2-4 weeks from the initial planning stage to the final handover. Here at Silvertouch, we expand our team at the project site to ensure completion date is achieved. There have been times where we had to complete projects under this timeline for special occasions, this timeline is an estimate and can be reduced if needed.
