Things to Consider Before Remodeling Your Bathroom

A bathroom renovation can be one of the biggest renovations you tackle in your home – right up there with kitchen overhauls! As you start planning your project, there are several things to keep in mind for making sure things unfold successfully. Read below to find out how you can have a successful bathroom remodel in your home!

Decide What’s Most Important

First things first, how do you define a successful renovation? Is it finishing the reno on a budget? Achieving a certain design style? Making a certain deadline? It’s essential to know the answers to these questions before you begin.

Decide on a Budget

Budgeting for a bathroom renovation can be difficult if you aren’t in construction yourself. Contact several contractors and walk through your project ideas with them. Their proposals should outline the steps and costs in detail so that there are no surprises. Once you have proposals in hand, you can always go back and change aspects of your project. These will be useful when it comes to deciding your needs and the size of your wallet.

Pick Where to Save and Where to Spend

Going back to tip #1, if you know what’s most important to you, you can make better decisions on where to spend your money. If your bathroom functions terribly, you might consider moving walls and plumbing to be worth the expense. If your bathroom functions well but needs an update, keeping the plumbing in its current location can drastically reduce your costs.

You can also save money by keeping your existing vanity and upgrading it with a new counter, sinks, faucets, and paint color. If there’s an expensive tile you absolutely love but it’s outside your budget to use everywhere, look for ways to incorporate it in smaller quantities, such as with an accent stripe in the shower or a design element in your flooring.

Think Long-Term

Your home should reflect your taste and personality. Let’s say your favorite color is violet, and you want it to be the color scheme of your bathroom. This color may be on trend right now but since trends come and go, it may not look appealing in the coming years.

Think long term when planning a bathroom remodel. Choose a classic color and design that will still look good in the coming years. You should also consider what potential buyers may think of your home. You may not have plans of selling your house right now, but you should definitely choose a color scheme and design that will appeal to a wider audience.

What About Storage?

Most bathrooms don’t have enough storage space. Because of this, homeowners have no choice but to place their toiletries and other stuff on the counter. This results in a cluttered mess. Now that you’re planning to tackle a bathroom renovation, it is best to add some shelving and cabinets in the bathroom so there will be enough space to accommodate your stuff.

Choose a Reputable Plumbing Contractor

Not all plumbing contractors are equal! Do your research. Make sure they are fully licensed and insured. Check their references and online reviews. Contractors who truly care about their reputations are registered with the Better Business Bureau.
