Remodeling your bathroom doesn’t only improve the space’s look and function but also increases the value of your home. Taking on this project, however, can be overwhelming. Without the necessary preparations, you might succumb to pressure and fail. To make sure everything runs smoothly, here’s a simple checklist from local bath remodeler Impact Home Solutions to help you keep the project on the right track.
Browse through home improvement magazines or online sites like Pinterest for ideas on what you want your new bathroom to look like. At the same time, consider how the fixtures must be laid out to learn what works in your space and what doesn’t.
Ask for Recommendations
It’s not necessary to talk to a contractor when you’re still collecting design ideas, but you can begin asking for recommendations from your friends, colleagues or family members. Once you’ve had a list of names, you can do a background check on them on the internet through a quick Google search. This way, you can be able to separate the reputable to the less reputable ones.
Create and Finalize Your Budget
Whether it is a simple bathtub replacement or a major remodeling that involves tearing down drywall and relocating pipes and other fixtures, you need to be certain with the budget for the project’s completion. Figure out what you can spend, taking into consideration the materials and labor required. For unexpected circumstances, set aside about 20% of the total budget.
Decide on the Contractor
With a few months before the project’s target date, it’s time to bring in a licensed contractor. Ask the pros to look at your ideas and see to it that everything you want for your bathroom can be done with their help. Obtain a written estimate, read the contract carefully, then sign. Around this time, the pros will be committing to your start date and establishing the project’s timeline.
