Planning out a bathroom remodel

If you are planning on having your bathroom remodeled, the entire process will be much smoother if you plan it out in advance. No matter the size of the room, it is important for you to have a clear idea of where the entire project is heading. The last thing you want is for you to start a renovation job with a contractor only to discover that your budget or suggested redesign are not going to work out. It can be intimidating to start a remodeling project, particularly in such a heavily-used room, but you can help reduce your stress by following a few simple guidelines.

The first thing you will need to establish with this kind of project is a timeline. Are you under any sort of restrictions, or can the entire process stretch out into a few weeks or months? A complete overhaul of a room will likely be very lengthy, so you need to prepare yourself for not having access to this bathroom for that significant amount of time. It is especially important to consider the size of your family and age of your children, as those factors could restrict how long you allow the remodel to go on.

Finding inspiration can often be one of the most difficult parts of a remodel or redesign. Aside from listening to the advice of your contractor, you should look outside your home whenever you can for elements you can incorporate into the bathroom. Is there a color of a friend's wall you really love, or a sink from your parents' house that would be perfect? These are all elements you can incorporate into your new and improved space!
