Take the Stress Out of a Bathroom Renovation

The majority of homeowners who have gone through remodeling projects will agree that the bathroom is one of the most stressful places in the house to renovate, second only to remodeling the kitchen. But if you are thinking about a bathroom renovation and are concerned about what you might be getting into, then we are here to help. The following guide touches on key points to consider to help the process go smoothly.

Budget First

When it comes to any remodeling budget, there is always a contingency fund for any unexpected problems. Bathroom renovations work the same way, but you should also expect to spend a little more in the bathtub and shower. Often this is the main feature of the bathroom, and your budget will depend on whether you have a full or partial bath and shower as well as how much you plan on replacing. Overall, the best thing you can do for your budget is to plan every last detail. It’s better to have an exhaustive list of each and every element you want to change in order to avoid as many budget surprises as possible.

Design Inspiration

Figuring out your bathroom design can be surprisingly tricky. After all, there are countless websites and magazines and trends to overwhelm you. While it can be fun at first to pick out tile and paint colors, it can become taxing and difficult to know what goes together. One thing you can do is go to a design showroom which will give you better than a visual of bathroom designs. There you can see firsthand what types of tile, cabinetry, and even hardware like faucets will fit your unique style. And in many cases, a design showroom will also offer handy cost estimates to help you figure out your renovation project.

Know Your Space

The easiest way to avoid unnecessary stress and frustration is to make sure you know what will and won’t fit in the space you have. Measuring is an important part of the planning process that absolutely cannot be skipped. When it doubt, get a professional inspection to know where you can relocate certain plumbing features and whether you have the room to upgrade your toilet, sink, and even lighting. Knowing how much space you have to work with is a simple way to make your renovation go great.
