When it comes to home renovation, nothing takes more time and effort than the kitchen and bath. Moreover, with a new and stylish kitchen and bathrooms, your home value will increase significantly. While one can imagine the work that has to go into a kitchen renovation, one may wonder what to expect with a bathroom remodel. Here’s what to expect.
Finding a Contractor
It all begins with finding the right contractor. Although it can take a lot of work to find one, it can also be surprisingly simple. Ask family and friends for referrals; this is one of the most trustworthy methods of finding a reliable contractor. Along with this, be sure to research online, look at reviews, and read websites. If you like one company based on their website, you can have every confidence to contact them. It doesn’t hurt to gather a few quotes together for comparison, but if you have found one you’re confident about, there’s no need to look further.
Finalizing the Plan
Once you’ve settled on a kitchen and bath company, it’s time to finalize the plan with the contractor. You will probably have spent months if not years thinking about how you might want to change your existing bathroom. At the very least, it helps to determine your wants and needs. A kitchen designer at Kenwood Kitchens can take those criteria and fashion them into a beautiful bathroom design. Finalize the materials, costs, timeline, warranties, etc. before signing the dotted line.
Getting Down to Business
Finally, it’s time to start renovating! The reality of the project sets in at this stage as workers tear out fixtures, flooring, cabinetry, and more. The reality of remodeling is that it will involve noise, dust, and messiness. However, the team should always clean up after themselves each day. Have a plan for how you will wash up each day while this bathroom is under construction.
Expecting the Unexpected
The length of time it takes to complete a bathroom renovation differs with every project. It will depend on how large your bathroom is and how extensive the work is. It can take a few days to many weeks. Regardless, one should expect the unexpected. Things can come up; delays can happen. Don’t be surprised if something takes a lot longer than planned. If a problem arises, you and the team can work together to find a solution.
Focusing on the Prize
In the midst of the mess, dust, and noise, it can be hard to keep one’s eyes on the prize. Even if it takes weeks, however, always remain excited and hopeful about the outcome. A beautiful bathroom involves much work before getting the result.
