The bathroom is one of the most commonly targeted areas when it comes to remodeling services, and no surprise. Considering how much time the average person spends there, and the role it plays in the daily routine, of course you’d want it to be as comfortable as possible! Before you go speeding off to pick out new fixtures and the like, though, we’d recommend taking a look at some of our tips on making sure that your remodeling project goes as smoothly as possible.
Find a Contractor You Trust
Unless you have plumbing (and possibly electrical) experience yourself, we highly recommend against doing most of the remodeling on your own. Remodeling even a smaller room is a big project, and you don’t want to end up damaging any of the fixtures in your bathroom by mistake. Trust us, water damage is no way to start enjoying your newly remodeled bathroom. A professional contractor you trust can take care of your entire remodeling project for you, so that you don’t have to worry about anything going awry that you can’t fix. This will likely save you money in the long run, and will definitely save you time.
Consult with Someone About What You Want Done
We know that you probably have a pretty good idea about what you want to change about your bathroom, and chances are it’s doable, but you should still schedule a consult to make sure that everything goes the way you want it to. Some appliances may not be entirely suited to the space you’re trying to install them, or maybe there are some even better options that you didn’t know about! This is another good reason to find a contractor that you can trust to take you through the process. They will likely know the best way to get you to the kind of remodeled space you want.
Have Some Flexibility in Your Budget
Remodels are notoriously difficult to price properly when it comes to contracting. A good contractor will often come in under-budget, but even those who routinely do will rarely make that promise before starting on a job. Maybe when they open up the walls or floors they find some issue that needs to be fixed before the remodel can continue. Maybe there’s mold that needs to be remediated, or piping that is corroded and in need of replacement. For reasons like these, we recommend that you offer some wiggle room when it comes to your timeline and budget for your remodeling project. Hopefully, everything will get done sooner and cheaper than you thought. If not though, at least with a margin you won’t have to worry about suddenly being overbudget when you hadn’t prepared for it.
