What to Consider When Remodeling a Bathroom
A bathroom remodeling project can turn your old and dingy bathroom into a relaxing oasis where you will enjoy spending time and soaking your cares away. However, there are a variety of important decisions that have to be made before your remodel begins that could have a significant impact on your satisfaction with the final product.
Here are some of the important factors you should consider before beginning a bathroom remodel:
Choose a Contractor You Can Rely On
The most important decision you will make in the entire process is the bathroom remodeling contractor. Be sure to choose a company that is licensed and insured, has been serving the area for many years, and has a reputation for providing outstanding service. You may also want to compare the products and prices offered, as they can vary greatly.
Staying Within Your Budget
As you start going down the list of special touches you want for your new bathroom, it is extremely easy to exceed your intended budget. This means that you will likely have some difficult decisions to make once you’ve laid out all you want for your new bathroom. You may want to leave a buffer in your budget to account for any unexpected issues that arise.
Be Smart When Choosing Your Products & Materials
You’ll likely want to choose materials for your new bathroom that won’t be affected by frequent moisture. If you’re hoping for shiplap or other types of wood walls or ceilings, make sure your bathroom will have plenty of ventilation. Also, if you’re planning to use lots of tile, be prepared to potentially battle mildew growth in the grout lines.
Make Sure You Have Enough Lighting
Having a well-lit bathroom is important, especially when you’re standing in front of a mirror getting ready for the day. You should plan for sufficient recessed lighting in the ceiling and may even want to consider a window or a skylight for added brightness.
