Have you been longing for a more elegant place to relax and soak in fragrant bubbles? Or, perhaps your current bathroom tile has molded, or cracked beyond repair. Remodeling a bathroom does more than make it a nice, comfortable place to get clean; it also improves the overall value of your home. If either of those ideas appeal to you, then consider taking on a project of your own.
The prospect of any renovation can feel daunting. It takes time, planning, money, and some messy work. However, as many renovations before are evidence, it can be done successfully.
It all begins with a very thorough plan.
Prior to beginning any significant project, extensive planning is a must. Even before you approach a contractor with any ideas, make sure you have everything you want ready. That means far more than color choices—which are significant, of course. This means significant research into materials, fixtures, etc. It means any measurements you can take to help a contractor before he or she has the chance to come see the site. You want to have all of your preferences and choices ready, have some backup options in case things do not go as you hope, and have a flexible budget. From all of this information, your contractor can help you make the best choices.
The time frame matters, too. A flexible time frame is best to accommodate any unforeseen issues. If you have visitors coming, or another life event, that may be a good deadline. You don’t want it to be too soon—that may affect the quality. You don’t want things to drag on, either—that will get in the way of your life and could cost more than you can afford.
