Undertaking a bathroom remodel can be a daunting task, to say the least. Whether you're only replacing the toilet or putting the entire room under the knife – tub, sink, flooring and all – when you're done with it you'll have a brand-new bathroom, and you want to do it right.
We've compiled a list of tips you can refer to when you're getting ready to start your bathroom remodel. Let's take a look:
Wait until you have everything you need to get started
Before you destroy any part of the wall, floor or sink, you should probably wait until you have all of your equipment and replacement materials. Big items like vanities and special-order tile could take weeks to come in. In the meantime, you should strategize and make sure you know exactly what you're doing before putting anything to the curb.
Make sure you have the right tools
You will not get very far in your remodel if you don't have the right tools at your disposal. For instance the kind of caulk you pick can have an effect on how long your floors are protected from mildew. You'll also need your general tools like a framing hammer (complete with ripping claw), drill, extension cords and safety glasses.
Do you want extra shower storage? (Hint: You do!) Should you use accent tiles to solidify the aesthetic? Whatever you want and need to do in this room, you should plan it out before you begin. This can help you out in the long run as far as how you're spending your money, too. If you plan to use more eco-friendly fixtures like low-flush toilets, you have to make sure there's room in the budget
Partner with the pros
Removing and replacing heavy fixtures can be complicated, and you want to make sure you have experts on hand to help you with this undertaking. Professional plumbers, for instance, can make assessments and recommend the best kind of toilet to install in your home, and then can assist you with the installation itself.
