Designing the New Bathroom Layout
One key factor in planning the new bathroom is matching the new tub, shower and vanity to the size of the room. Many people make the mistake of choosing a tub that is too big for the space. You don't want to make the room appear small with limited walking and standing room. Everything should be the correct size for the space you have available. Don't forget plenty of storage space. You will find it easier to organize the room and it will increase the value of your home if you ever decide to sell.
Choosing the Materials
Your budget may dictate some of the options such as flooring, counter tops and fixtures, but you can still achieve the look you are after without breaking the bank. Explore showrooms in your area to get an idea of what is available in your price range. Choosing the fixtures in advance of beginning the bathroom remodel will help keep down costs.
Experts recommend picking everything including small items before construction. Even a hamper or window treatment can change the appearance of room dramatically. This is a good time to pick all your paint colors for the walls, baseboard, ceiling and other surfaces.
Discuss your plans with a licensed contractor before starting any work. Even if you are confident about doing certain parts of the construction yourself, an experienced local contractor will have knowledge about problems that are common in your area or in your type of house. Always choose a contractor with local experience who is licensed and insured.
If you decide to handle part of the remodel yourself, be sure that you will be able to complete that portion of the job. A job that needs to be redone will drastically increase costs and add to the time needed to complete the remodel. You may want to consider doing the demolition part of the work yourself.
