Here are some tips that might make your bathroom remodeling project easy and satisfying.
You should have a budget in mind for the remodeling, but this budget should also take into account some unforeseen issues. When you undertake a major renovation, especially bathroom remodeling, there are bound to be some surprises in store. For instance, during the renovation you may find that the pipes need changing or there is asbestos behind your walls in the cavity. You need to be prepared for these contingencies and your budget should be able to accommodate them without taking a toll on your finances.
While you will be hiring a contractor, there are some aspects of the remodeling that you can do yourself and save on the overall costs. However, you should know your limitations and ensure that you leave the things you do not understand to the contractor, as he and his workers will have the skill, knowledge and tools to do them efficiently, effectively and economically.
Be sure to stand and supervise the workers while they pull up your bathroom’s underlayer. This is primarily to ensure that you will not have to spend money anytime soon on replacing anything if it is damaged or gone bad. See to it the contractor spend sufficient time pulling up the underlayer. Supervising the process will allow you to see what lies underneath and take corrective measures during the remodeling itself than spending another bomb at a future date.
While the contractor will be doing all the major work, you can put the finishing touches to your bathroom to reflect your personality and likes. This will be the fun part of the project and you can let your creativity flow. For instance, if you intend retiling the shower area, look to add accent tiles to suit your taste. Try to opt for tiles that truly reflect your personality and not something that is currently in vogue.
Your bathroom is your private haven to rest and rejuvenate after a tiring day’s work. And the kind of light you install in your newly renovated bathroom will have a huge impact on your mood. Opt for soft lighting to create an intimate and relaxing ambiance. Many times while undertaking bathroom renovation, people forget about the importance of lighting. They realize something is amiss only later on when the lighting is not adequate or too bright. So get the lighting right immediately after the contractor finishes your bathroom and enjoy the elegance and ambiance.
Do not let your bathroom remodeling drive you crazy. If you follow the aforementioned tips, you will be amazed at how smoothly the entire renovation goes. By planning ahead and taking time to add your personal touch to your bathroom, you can create a space that is unique, elegant and just what you had in mind.
