Planning the Ideal Bathroom Renovation

The most fruitful bathroom renovation results from pre-planning. While your contractor does the work of planning the actual construction, you conceive of the bathroom you desire. Making all the decisions in advance frees your contractor to accomplish the work quickly for you. Planning your bathroom remodel starts with your goal for the bathroom.

Set a Clear Goal for Your Bathroom

Determine which area of the room you want as a focal point and what you want to improve. Typical options include:

  • Update the tub and shower
  • Install a modern toilet
  • Replace the sink and vanity
  • Upgrade lighting and other fixtures

Setting your bathroom goal anchors your project planning and provides a starting point for detailed planning. It also determines whether you will remodel, which means changing what you already have without rebuilding or renovate, which requires replacing major items or building new walls or areas. Resurfacing a bathtub falls under remodeling, but replacing a shower with a bathtub falls under renovation.

Plan Each Area in Detail

Use your goal to drill down on the design details of that area of the room. Decide on the flooring, wall coverings, fixtures, etc. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • How many shower jets do you want?
  • Do you need a hand-held showerhead?
  • Do you want an open shower?
  • Would you like the shower flooring to differ from the remainder of the bathroom floor?

In this planning step, explore available options by reading home design magazines and visiting home improvement stores. Determine the specific features you want in your bathroom storage and cabinetry.

Gathering Bathroom Renovation Ideas

Now that you set a goal and developed it, your home improvement store exploration fuels finding the solutions. Visit bathroom fixture shops and tile stores, too. These retail wonders let you touch and feel each option and offer knowledgeable salespeople who can help you locate fixtures that solve space or utility problems. This step helps you clarify bathroom renovation goals.

Be careful when perusing Internet websites on design because many of them use European designs. That can make it tough to find the right fixtures since they may not offer them in the United States. During your store visits, grab samples and paint chips to show your future contractor.

Getting It Done

How long a bathroom update takes depends on the amount of work to do and the number of plumbing changes. Typically, a full bathroom renovation requires four weeks of daily, full-time work to complete. By planning all of the details, you can help your general contractor get the job done faster.
