Whether you are remodeling your bathroom to increase the resell value of your house or just for your own pleasure, it is certainly a remodeling project worth your investment of time and money. However, embarking on a bathroom remodeling project can be a difficult task for any home owner and thus you must approach the bathroom remodeling project with thought and care and before you start a project like this, you need to be sure you have the time and patience to invest.
The first step in the bathroom remodeling project is the planning stage. It is important to take the time to think about your goals for the bathroom, think about practical issues and aesthetics issues alike. You must think about the time you and your family are going to spend in this bathroom but at the same time, remember that a bath remodeling can be a wise investment, increasing the value of your house and therefore you should think of a bathroom remodeling that will appeal not only to you and your specific needs but also to future buyers.
Part of the planning stage is having a realistic financial planning in place. Each bathroom remodeling project in your home is going to require a certain amount of money. Make sure you go into your renovation with your eyes open and realistic expectation how much the remodeling is going to cost. You must think of best case scenarios as well as worst case scenarios and be open for changes at any given time. Integral part of the bathroom remodeling is the fixtures, the cabinets, faucets and such. You should shop around and have an idea of what you would like to have put in your bathroom versus what you can afford to have. However, sometimes you should invest in expensive fixtures, cabinets or maybe even floor heating, spend your money on items that you would really like to have and you will enjoy them for many years to come.
The next step in your bathroom remodeling project is designing the bathroom layout. If you are hiring a designer to help you then you must not think about it but if you are trying to save your money on the design process than the first thing you have to do is to take a measuring tape and write down the measurements of everything in the room. You must take measurements of the walls, the fixtures such as bath tub, sink, cabinets, shower, toilets etc. Next thing you must do is take a sheet of grid paper and create the bathroom layout on it. Make a cut outs of your fixtures and move them around. Remember that not all fixtures can move such as toilets but most can. Think about your door way, the floor, ceiling and more.
Lastly, retaining a good bath remodeling contractor in the early stages can help you and your designer with logistical and cost figures to fit your renovation wants and needs.
