What to Know Before Your Bathroom Reno

Share This Post

Renovating is a great undertaking for households big and small but can ultimately make (or break) your dream home. Like any great undertaking, you must be ready to plan out every bit of detail that comes into renovating your home from start to finish. To help you get through renovating your home, here is a list of things you have to consider:

  1. Time

Most people assume that renovating just a small part of their home (in this case, the bathroom) will take shorter than it should. A seasoned contractor should be able to give you a realistic timeline on all the work that has to be done – this includes ordering materials, realigning the pipes, and more.


If you only have one bathroom in the house, have a contingency plan ready. You will need to have a place to shower once they take your bathroom apart.


  1. Money

We all know that renovating costs money. In planning a budget for your new home improvement project, the cheapest deals aren’t always the best. This rings true for contractors need to hire and all the other elements you put in your bathroom.


It is important to remember that while any contractor can renovate a bathroom, a good contractor will build a bathroom that lasts, which can save you money in the long run. The same goes for the elements you put in your new bathroom.


  1. Design

From the color scheme to all the key elements that come into the overall look of your bathroom, is all up to you. Imagine a place that gets you excited to wake up in the morning, a room YOU would want to get ready in.

Keep in mind that design is married to functionality, and they are a hard couple to break. Make sure to pick pieces that do not disturb the flow and traffic in your bathroom and also something that you can still see yourself using in the years to come.

  1. Durability

A great looking bathroom means nothing if everything in it constantly breaks. Invest in higher priced components (such as the toilet, the vanity etc.) that could stand the moist and busy environment that is your bathroom.


  1. The right people for the job

As discussed earlier, picking the right contractor is crucial to any renovation. You might be tempted to hire the next guy who gives you the lowest quotation but more often than not, quality work comes with a price.  Think of it this way, cheaper work means they have to use even cheaper materials in order to generate profit. It may look great, but you might end up spending as much (or even more) for the repairs that will come soon after.

Looks like you have a few planning to do! Keeping these tips in mind ensures that you can go on building your dream bathroom without a hitch!
