One helpful way to have a successful bathroom remodeling project is organizing it through checklists. In this blog, your local bathroom remodeling services contractor Empire State Builders & Contractors shares a checklist of all bathroom remodeling essentials.
The last thing you want is an unfinished bathroom because the funds ran out. Your budget will be your guidepost when you need to make decisions on what to include in your project. Some people find it awkward to discuss their budget with their remodeler, but it actually helps remodelers narrow down remodeling options.
You might be surprised to know that bathroom renovations take about six weeks, much longer than an average home remodeling project. Bathroom renovations are far more complicated, not just in terms of labor, but in the variety of materials used. Ordering the tiles and fixtures, in addition to building custom cabinets, can impact the project timeline.
Removing old components such as drywall and plumbing may reveal hidden problems that need to be fixed. This doesn’t happen in every bathroom remodel, but it is something you should plan for. Quotes do not account for repair costs incurred by hidden problems, so your budget should leave some headroom for it.
Bathroom remodeling requires accurate measurements, not just because bathrooms are generally the smallest rooms in their respective houses. Fixtures need to line up with existing plumbing and electrical wiring. Measurements also determine the amount of material that needs to be ordered, and is a key element of striking a good balance between maximizing storage space and minimizing clutter.
Plumbing Fixtures and Features
There are thousands of possible bathroom fixture combinations to choose from, so this should not be left off your bathroom remodeling plans. It can even fill a checklist on its own: shower, toilet, bathtub, sink, along with faucets and shower heads are just a few of the items that should be on the list.
