Beginning a new bathroom remodeling project can be a very difficult and daunting task. Even the smaller projects can be very difficult and time-consuming for the average home owner. If you’re redesigning a much larger master bathroom then your project will likely consist of many smaller projects, which could be hard to keep track of what you’ve already accomplished.
For this reason it’s very important that you keep yourself well-organized for the duration of the project.
Before contacting a local contractor for help I recommend you follow the 5 tips below.
1. Take a look at the current bathroom and how much space it has, and come up with a set of personal goals; how you hope for the bathroom to turn-out.
Decide whether you’ll be completely changing the appearance of the bathroom, or if you’ll just be making a minor change. Take accurate measurements of the bathroom and jot down any materials you’ll need to get the task done. Also be sure to write down what your goals are for each separate phase of the project.
2. Don’t forget about your bathroom floor.
Choosing a good-looking floor is very important, but you’ll have to make sure that the floor you choose stays within your budget. Carpet should never be considered for bathroom flooring. Before making your final decision on flooring make sure you do extensive research on your options.
3. Lighten the mood in your bathroom by buying new lighting.
Choosing the right lighting will make or break your bathroom remodeling project. Choosing the correct size of lighting and bulbs is also very important; lighting that doesn’t fit in your bathroom or is too bulky won’t help at all. If you’re interested in saving electricity then fluorescent bulbs will help. Whatever kind of lighting you choose, make sure it complements the rest of your bathroom well and matches the bathrooms mood.
4. Pay special attention to both your tub and shower.
Decide whether you’ll need to completely replace your tub and shower, or if they’ll just need some minor fixing up. New shower/tub replacements will boost the appearance of any bathroom. Depending on how much space you have to work with you’ll have many options when choosing a new shower. You may even decide to purchase a hot tub to place in your bathroom, which will certainly make a great addition to the overall elegancy of the bathroom.
5. Determine what your budget for the project is early on.
Begin to plan your spending and start looking for discounts on materials to stay within your budget.
As long as you follow these 5 tips, stay organized, and keep within your budget your bathroom remodeling project should go just fine.
