Monday, September 24th, 2012

It can be a good idea to remodel a bathroom even when times are tough because there are economical solutions. Either way, it is a good option because an altered design or a second bath will increase the value of your home. The first thing that is needed on any project is preparation. Know what you need, what you want to have, and how it is going to be paid for. Knowing how much money you want to spend and who is going to help you do the work will help you avoid some pitfalls along the way.

Once you decide what you have in mind, extensive research and planning is needed.

Every room in your home has the potential to showcase your personal style and your bathroom is no exception. Getting your bathrooms to reach its full potential starts out by looking beyond what it is to what it could be. It is not the size of the room that matters, but what you do with it. Even a small bathroom can take care of our day to day needs. Amazing things happen when you embrace the possibilities. Imagine a seldom used tub removed to allow space for a walk in shower or a floating vanity.

Choices are needed and there a variety of enhancements that you can make to a bathroom.

The choices that you can decide to use are surface alterations, changing the whole layout of the bathroom, or doing the complete tear out and changing the entire look to the bath.

At this point, you need to take a good hard look at the project and make the tough decision of either doing it yourself or hiring a professional. If you are making surface changes and are motivated and have the time, then you might be able to make the changes to the bathroom yourself. Installing a new toilet might be simple but building a new tiled shower should be left to the pros. So look over your bathroom and decide which projects to do yourself and which to leave to the pros.

Don’t hire your local handyman or family friend to remodel your bathroom.

If hiring a contractor, you will want to make sure the contractor is properly licensed. Licensure is not a mark of quality work. It just means that they have taken the basic minimum requirements of the licensing agency to perform the work. Electrical, building, and other permits may be required when remodeling any room. If permits are needed, they should be applied for as soon as possible.

If you prepare in advance, set your budget, and be creative, you will end up with a beautiful bathroom that will not break your bank.
