Here Are 3 Tips For Renovating Your Bathroom!
There are many reasons why you would want to renovate your bathroom. Piping might need to be replaced. You might have broken a few tiles and have to pull out the entire floor. Or you could just want to have a nice room where you can have a hot and relaxing bath. Whatever your reason, the job can take some time. While putting a few extra items in a storage container rental during the renovation helps with some of your organization, you still need to plan out the rest of your project. Here are some tips to get your dream bathroom up and running in no time at all.
Before you start taking apart your bathroom, take a few minutes to think about the layout of the project. Try to estimate the cost of materials and man hours as accurately as possible. Decide what is in your budget. This will determine what kind of materials you can use in your bathroom and the scope of your project. If you know what you can afford, you can identify what you want to replace and where you might need to get creative.
If cost is an issue, consider going green. You can save a lot of money by refinishing items you already have ,such as your bathtub, sink, tiles and shower. Refinishing costs a fraction of the price of replacement. In addition, refinishing won't make your bathroom look like a tornado just touched down in your home.
Have Everything On Hand
If you are planning on installing vanity tops or special-order tile, you might have to wait for several weeks before the items arrive. Before you do any work, make sure you have everything you need. This includes the vanity, plumbing, the tub, lighting and fixtures. If you wait for all your items to arrive before you start renovating, you won't have to tear up your fixtures and leave your bathroom unusable during the process.
