Whether you are planning to sell your home tomorrow or stay in it forever, a bathroom remodel is one of the best home improvements you can do. Giving your old bathroom a fresh new look can make your home more valuable and make the space more enjoyable. Remodeling the bathroom is not for the faint of heart, however; if you do not go about it the right way, you could end up regretting your decision. If you want to make your bathroom remodel as stress-free as possible, proper planning and preparation are essential. Here are six tips from Complete Construction DFW to get you started.
Start With the Reason for the Remodel
Are you remodeling the bathroom for your own comfort and the comfort of your family? In anticipation of an upcoming sale? Or as a way to make the space safer for an older loved one? The reason matters, so make that a starting point and move on from there.
Set a Budget Ahead Of Time
The project could quickly get out of hand if you do not know how much the bathroom remodel will cost. Before you do anything else, work closely with an experienced contractor to help you set a realistic budget from the start.
Think Twice Before Moving Plumbed-In Items
Moving plumbed-in fittings like sinks and toilets will be complicated, so think carefully before including these moves in your remodeling plan. You may still want to move them, but at least you will know what is involved.
Sketch Out the Layout
It can be hard to envision your new bathroom in all its glory, but thanks to 3D rendering software and online resources, you can check it out before the contractor even arrives. Sketching out the layout ahead of time will make everything that follows easier.
Consider Lighting Upgrades
A bathroom remodel is the perfect opportunity to upgrade the lighting in the space, so think about what types of fixtures you prefer and how they will look in the room. Do you prefer the simple elegance of recessed lighting or the brightness of large fluorescent bulbs?
