Bryce Gibbs going back to Carlton makes sense, but will it happen?

  Bryce Gibbs going back to Carlton makes sense, but will it happen? A single-word tweet is all it took to get the rumour mill running. Bryce Gibbs sent out a tweet reading “Baggers” after Carlton’s one-point win over Essendon on Saturday night and the footy world took notice. Gibbs, who has fallen out of favour at the Crows, spent a decade at the Blues and was clearly thrilled to see some of his old friends get a win over the old enemy.

11. Have a concrete budget in place

"Having a concrete budget in place will make you monitor all your choices of items. Bathrooms can tend to blow out in in cost because there are so many beautiful bathroom items on the market! For instance, know from the start whether you can afford the $10,000 stone bath or even a $2000 freestanding steel bath before you go looking at baths. Understand roughly how much tiling you will require in square metres. You may find you have sourced the most amazing tile, but tile prices vary wildly and each square metre can add hundreds to your costs on top of the general building costs. Knowing what you require will stop you from swaying from the final objective – a built bathroom to your budget." – Brooke Aitken, architect, Brooke Aitken Design

12. Always use a professional

"A bathroom designer has a broad sense of what's going to work and what's not. Also, their attention to detail is at a level most home renovators will never be able to achieve.

13. Make sure all your taps, basins and tiles are delivered to site and checked by your contractors before they're stored, ready for use

"If, for instance, your tiles have come to the house in a cracked state and are then stored without checking the boxes before they are needed, your building program will be held back while you try to organise more - not to mention the argument that will ensue with the supplier that the damage has happened onsite." – Brooke Aitken, architect, Brooke Aitken Design

14. Allow three months to build or renovate a bathroom

"The actual building process will take three to four weeks, all going smoothly. But there are a lot of planning and design processes that need to occur before you get to that stage, so allow three months." – Vanessa Cook, Bathroom Designer, Smarter Bathrooms

15. Know the rules

"Always be aware that codes, standards and certificates apply and will be required upon completion." – Shawn Godwin, Architect, Base Architecture
