Remodeling the bathroom is going to take some time. No matter how intense the project is, there needs to be some planning in order to help make it happen. Although there are some tasks you can complete on your own, for the most part, you will probably want to rely on help from the professionals. Here are some things to think about before you can get started.
What Do You Want to Do?
When you get started, don’t lose sight of the big picture. In other words, what do you want to do? Maybe you want to restrict yourself to simple surface alterations, or you could gut the room and replace what’s inside it. Changing the layout and changing the room are also options you could pursue. For example, when you want to do a surface-level bathroom, remember that you are covering, and not replacing.
What is Your Budget?
The next question you have to answer has to do with your budget. You can expect to spend several thousands of dollars even if the bathroom is on the smaller side. Plumbers and electricians have to become involved, and fixtures and cabinetry will probably have to be redone as well. Getting a home equity loan might be one of the ways you can fund this project. There are also other ways to save some money, such as deciding if you want to do it on your own.
DIY or Not?
Of course, we urge you to consider relying on professional experience and not doing it yourself. Even if you are handy, you’re probably still not as skilled as a general contractor is. Putting in a new toilet could be simple enough for you to do. And yes, we agree but doing something a bit more complicated, like building a brand new tiled shower in your bathroom, that’s something you will want to leave to the professionals. When you are looking for the right contractor to get the job done for you, though, there are a few things to keep in mind. Licensing, permits, and certifications are all important since this can help keep delays from happening.
