Before You Begin Your Bathroom Remodel

Before starting your bathroom remodel, make a list of the things that bother you about your space. What kind of changes would you like to make in order to correct these issues? Many of our  kitchen remodeling designs address the following problems:

  • Lack of space
  • Outdated look
  • Old fixtures
  • Awkward or inefficient layout

Next, rank these items in order of priority. This will come in handy when discussing your desires with our design team. It will help us choose which choices are the most effective to achieve your design aesthetic.

Next, you’ll need to consider your timeline for your bathroom remodel project. Depending on how extensive your remodel is, you may need to make other living arrangements for anywhere from a week to a few months. Will the remodel involve a demo requiring that you seal off other rooms from dust or noise? How can you plan to live around the remodeling process?

Bathroom Remodeling Planning Considerations

Before you start interviewing potential contractors, you will need to determine your budget. New fixtures and additional square footage are excellent choices, and bathroom countertops and new flooring are among the most important. Do you want new cabinetry or will refaced cabinetry work for your desires? Include the cost of small items like drawer hardware, organizational items, or decorating accessories. You’ll need to price all of the components of your project. Mentally make a note that the cost of the contractors you’ll be using for this project isn’t included yet!

Next Steps in Your Bathroom Remodel

Choosing a design style and color palette for your bathroom will likely depend on the style and color scheme used in the rest of your home. However, there are a lot of design elements to consider within the design style and colors you’ve already worked on within your home.

Using a Reputable Contractor for Your Bathroom Remodel

Unless you plan on serving as your own general contractor for this project (and if so, plan to take some time off of work!) then you will need to find a reputable contractor. There are a lot of issues and potential pitfalls that an experienced contractor can help you avoid or steer you through, so finding a good one is key to a smooth Bathroom Remodel.

Experienced contractors will know and understand the building codes involved and different requirements for residential remodels in local areas like Highland Village, Frisco, Plano and Flower Mound. Not only will they know how to measure your space correctly to accommodate your choices, but they will understand the more technical aspects of the project as well. They’ll know if gas lines need to be re-routed, and if so, how. They’ll know when existing wiring can be used and when an electrician will be needed to update the wiring. A seasoned professional contractor can be an invaluable asset in the process of remodeling your kitchen.
