If remodeling your bathroom is the next thing on your “To do” list, it is time that you take a thorough look at what you will need and how you will get there. Using a few “quick tips” can help navigate your bathroom renovation project without causing too much of a hassle.
- Come up with your budget
One of the major aspects of your project will be your budget. Assessing your budget will give you more perspective on what you want to do with your bathroom. Materials and project management can be based off the budget you set for your bathroom. The better your budget, the better the materials can be for your home bathroom renovation.
- Assess Your Skills
It is time to be honest with yourself when it comes to your DIY skills. Do it yourself projects are not always easy and you might have to employ experts to come do the job. Do not waste your time trying to do it yourself if you are aware you do not have the skills to do it. You may even want to do certain parts of the project and skip out on the others. Be honest because this can be costly if you do not have the skills and attempt to do it yourself. The fix alone could cost several hundred to thousand dollars more to have an expert come and rework the job you tried to do.
- Negotiate Going Green
Many people do not understand the effectiveness of going green. Materials that help “Going Green” do more than just help the environment. They will also help your bathroom project. Many of the items that are considered “Green” tend to function better, making them last longer and giving you more reliability. In addition, as green projects are beginning to be an asset for many contractors and homeowners alike, the price for the items has decreased significantly.
- Try Refinishing Items
Refinishing certain items like your sink and tub will be a huge money saver on your end. You will be able to get the look you want with the refinish, reduce your budget significantly and will help save the environment. Opposed to throwing out the tub or sink, you have now saved it from sitting in the dumpster.
- Avoid Moving Around Plumbing
Sure, your tub and sink may look ideal in another spot inside your bathroom. However, it is not that easy. Reworking your plumbing will cost you thousands of dollars just to do it. If you are not looking to dumb several thousand into the project, keep everything where it is and rework your vision to fit the current positions of your plumbing.
Reworking Your Bathroom Can Take Several Days
As you begin to explore your options, keep in mind that your renovation project will take several days to complete. The more complex the work, the longer it will take for your renovation to be completed. Take your time planning to minimize the amount of downtime your bathroom will have.
