Bathroom Pre-Renovation Planning!

A bathroom is one of the most complicated rooms to renovate in your home even though it may be one of the smallest. To successfully renovate a bathroom, you need a handful of skilled tradespeople to work on the many different areas in a bathroom. Such as the water, electrical, tiles, or counters. We provide you with a couple of things to think about bathroom pre-renovation planning.

Bathroom Layout

First, you need to take into account the layout of your bathroom and what you can, or cannot, change. For example, you may be able to add a skylight, but find it impossible to add another doorway as the way your house was built may not allow such a thing to be done.

On the topic of bathroom layouts, think twice before changing the location of the bathroom basics, such as the toilet, shower, or bath. Because you will definitely have to hire a trained plumber to work at their hourly rate to adjust the piping accordingly behind the walls. Should you consider only upgrading existing fixtures, it could save you quite a bit.

Planning Bathroom Pre-Renovation ahead of time

Another thing to plan out ahead of time (especially if you only have 1 main bathroom in your home!) is what you’re going to do in the time that you can’t use your bathroom. Perhaps, you’ve made arrangements with your neighbor, or agreed to shower at a friends house. Take into consideration how the whole process will affect your everyday life for that time. About people entering and being in your house, making noise or working on your bathroom. You may want to not schedule activities for which you would need peace and quiet for during their working hours.
