If you’re planning for a bathroom remodel, you want the process to be as smooth as possible. However, this isn’t possible without proper planning. Before starting a bathroom remodel, you must consider many factors because it shouldn’t be an impromptu decision. Here is how to prepare for a bathroom remodel.
Establish a Budget
Whether it’s your bathroom or kitchen you want to remodel or another area in your home, you should have a budget. A flexible budget helps you avoid overspending. However, it also ensures that your project isn’t too low-grade, meaning that you miss out on essential features that can take your bathroom to the next level. In short, you want a high-quality renovation without putting yourself in the red.
Be Decisive About Designs
There are millions of ways to execute a bathroom remodel. It makes sense to look through designs and be decisive about them as you set your budget. You can look through our website for inspiration, Pinterest, HGTV, or wherever your heart desires. We also recommend that you visit our showroom because nothing compares to seeing materials and layouts up close and personal. The goal is to have a ballpark range of how much the types of designs you want cost.
Keep Your Lifestyle in Mind
A luxurious bathroom with marble doesn’t work for every homeowner. If you have small children in your home or there is a lot of foot traffic in the bathroom, using marble might not make sense. Choose suitable materials that make sense for your lifestyle. For example, porcelain is a maintenance-free flooring option.
Care About Hardware
Hardware seems minuscule in the grand scheme of things. However, it plays an essential role in the final look of your bathroom remodel. Something as seemingly minor as changing the finishes in this space can change the entire ambiance.
Considerations When the Bathroom Remodel Takes Place
Before our professionals arrive, remove everything from the bathroom that you can. Here are some things you should remove:
- Soaps, shampoos, razors, and washcloths
- Items sitting around or on top of your toilet
- Bathmats, trash cans, scales, or anything on the floor
- Racks, hooks, or rods used to hang towels (if you’re getting a new wallpaper)
You also want to reduce the number of people coming in and out of the worksite. Plan the entrances and exits to avoid conflict and create alternative pathways. You’ll also want to move objects to easy-to-reach locations until our team completes the job.
