Renovating a bathroom can be exciting. However, there are a few basic things that should be in place before you go ahead with this work.
You need to make a checklist and make sure that you have ticked all the boxes so you don’t miss out on a crucial part of the renovation, which could prove costly in the future.
Below is a preview of everything that you need to do before the work on your home bathroom begins.
Establish Your Budget – This is probably the most important factor to consider. Bathroom renovation can be costly, and due to the nature of the plumbing and such may require some unexpected expenses.
Make sure you have an accurate estimate of the total project cost and available funds to avoid facing a shortage of money while your renovation work is in progress.
Time – Depending on the scale of your bathroom renovation, this project can take many days or even longer. You may have to live with a slightly compromised bathroom situation for a couple of weeks or more.
Design and Style – People are spending more time in the bathroom these days. They want it to be functional, comfortable and inviting. So, plan all that you want to have installed in your bathroom and the layout.
You can ask your contractor to do a mock-up design to check if it works for you or not. Changes made after the start of the project may or may not be possible. If they are possible they will definitely cost you more than if they were included in the original plan.
Plumbing Fixtures – Spend some time and do research on popular plumbing fixtures brands known for their quality and genuine price. Choosing cheap fixtures may seem cost-effective, but may not function up to your satisfaction. Replacing the fixture at a later date will cost you more than if you had used quality initially.
You can also get your current porcelain plumbing fixtures reglazed by a professional contractor to restore their appearance to as good as new. That’s right, replacing is not the only option. If the style of what you currently have is not the issue but rather the color or condition is unsightly reglazing will save you time and money.
When you reglaze your porcelain tub, tile and sink you will have a beautiful new finish that is usable in a day instead of days or weeks. New color, new finish, less time, less money. A bit of a no brainer isn’t it. Give Total Koatings a call today and have a new look tomorrow.
