A bathroom renovation is quite an exciting task but also a daunting one.
Because renovating a bathroom can be overwhelming, time consuming and tiring, here is a checklist to make sure your
project works as per plan and smoothly.
1) Budget –
Depending on how much you want to change in the bathroom, your contractor will suggest the amount you might have to spend and accordingly you set a budget for yourself.
Once you’ve figured out what you can spend and subtracted the labor charges, you will be able to get a clear idea of what to spend on the fixtures.
2) Time –
Many people assume that resurfacing the bathroom is a quick process and should take a few days only but it totally depends on the type of changes you are thinking of as your contractor will consider those changes similar to the ones required in making a new
The time planning does not depend only on the time which would be spent on getting the work done but it also includes purchasing tiles, fixtures, custom built vanity or cabinets etc.
Planning the time duration would also include adding those hours when you and your family would be using the bathroom, if you only had one in the house.
3) Work Sequence –
When it comes to resurfacing your bathroom, you need to follow a certain sequence for the work you need to get done as it will save you from a lot of clean up time and mistakes.
Whether you are resurfacing, repainting or demolishing, always remember to start from the top. Work on the ceiling first, then the walls and lastly the floor so as to avoid damage and time wastage.
4) Hidden problems –
If you are doing a major resurfacing in your bathroom, consider doing a fully professional one so that your bathroom runs smoothly and flawlessly for years to come.
Depending on the age of your home and how well it was built, the biggest hidden problem that would need repairs is water leakage so it is important to look out for structural deficiencies in the floor framing, not properly vented plumbing, old corroded plumbing, non
waterproof tile shower/tub surrounds etc.
5) Design style –
When you start planning resurfacing your bathroom, there are many factors to consider like paint colour, tile choices, showers, tubes, cabinets, faucets etc.
You might have some design in mind and you can work around it or you can simply start to piece together elements, then form the base in your mind and explain the same to your contractor.
Whatever design you have in mind, one main point to consider is how the bathroom design will fit in with the rest of the house.
6) Measurements –
Three major points that really matter while resurfacing the bathroom are the overall size of the bathroom, the location of existing plumbing pipes and electrical wiring and the typical standard dimensions of bathroom fixtures.
Make sure you have the correct measurements and specifications when you go to the store to purchase stuff.
7) Contractor –
The smartest thing to do while getting a resurfacing job done for your bathroom, is to choose the right contractor for the project because there are a lot of difficult operations involved such as electrical, tiling, plumbing etc.
By hiring a good contractor you’ll be saving yourself from loads of misery and time.
