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 homeowner. If you’re recreating a much bigger master bathroom then your project will likely consist of many smaller projects like new age modern toilets, 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.
- Take a look at your current bathroom and how much space it has, and come up with a set of personal targets; how you hope for the bathroom to turn-out.
Decide whether you will be completely changing the appearance of the bathroom, or if you will just be making a small 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.
- 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. Never consider carpet for bathroom flooring. Before making your final decision on flooring make sure you do extensive research on your options.
- Lighten your mood in your bathroom by purchasing 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 lightings you choose, make sure it complements the rest of your bathroom well and matches the mood of the bathroom.
- Pay special attention to both your shower and tub.
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 really boost the appearance of your 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 buy a hot tub to place in your bathroom, which will certainly make a great change to the overall elegance of the bathroom.
- 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 do just fine.
