What To Expect During A Bathroom Remodel And Redesign

As you look around your bathroom, you’ve concluded that it’s time for an update. However, things are not as simple as they seem on those home improvement shows you watch on cable. Your friends have told you about their remodel and it gives you pause.

Knowing what you’re getting into is half the battle. Since plumbing is involved, it’s important to get someone that knows what they’re doing in putting together your bathroom without having issues.

Bathroom Remodel Plan

One of the first and best things that you can do when you are thinking of a bathroom remodel is putting together a plan. While you know the square footage that you have available, it’s not as simple as just throwing everything that you need into the room. Unless you are building a brand new bathroom, you likely have your plumbing in certain places. That will limit where you want to put your shower, sink and toilet. If you want to rearrange where things sit, that will mean more money moving pipes to different configurations.

Bathroom Renovations

Once you have things worked out, you will be dealing with a bathroom renovation that will take up some time. One of the many things that you can expect is delays. The experts at HGTV say that whatever time you think it will take, it’s a safe bet to double it. They also suggest getting items in place for a “makeshift bath” if the bathroom that you are working on is your only one.

Clean Air System In The Bathroom

You might also notice a great deal of debris making its way throughout your home. Any remodel will kick up dust and that tends to circulate through your home’s heating and air conditioning system. While it will cost you more, you might consider getting a contractor that will use an air cleaning system to get this dust out of the air. You might also consider if the air returns in the bathroom area can be safely blocked. That involves a look from a heating & air conditioning repair professional, but if they can, that would mean a lot of the dust and debris being contained.
