When remodeling a bathroom, one can be surprised about how much people can spend for the overall project. I have already tried remodeling my bathroom at home and it can be quite overwhelming. There is just so much to oversee. If I could, I would go back and remodel my bathroom now that I have learned something about remodeling bathrooms. From my experience I could see the mistakes I made and the stuff I wish I had done. I have thought of them over and over and now I can give some tips and ideas you can use when remodeling your bathroom.
Before you are going to start the remodeling project, make sure that you have everything you need first. Take note that the materials you will order may take quite a while to arrive so have patience.
Think about all the options you can go for. Don’t limit your search for materials in one store or website, look elsewhere, you may find stuff you like or find great deals on much needed supplies.
When you are going to remodel, take note that you will need to have a space to put your stuff nearby the shower. It doesn’t have to be large, just enough to accommodate the stuff you use in the shower.
To speed things up, rip the underlayment as well as the floor covering itself. If you spend time trying to rip off the vinyl or tiles, you will end up consuming a lot of time and be left to deal with those annoying pieces.
I recommend that you make use of accent tiles. Though they do come at a cost, you wouldn’t need that much just to spice things up in your own bathroom. You can let your creativity do the work and come up with a design for these.
Another idea you can put into play is making use of a shower rod that is curved. It does cost more compared to the usual straight rod, but there is difference in space.
Now if you began with a vinyl floor but changing it to tiles, use a spacer on the flange of your toilet so that the height of the tiles will set flush against the toilet as tiles have greater elevation compared to vinyl.
I must really emphasize this; make sure that the light fixtures in your bathroom are updated. These things are very important since they will set the mood inside the bathroom itself and the lighting will also have an impact on the look of your bathroom.
Another thing, make sure you get a professional remodel contractor to help you out with the project. These guys know what they are doing and they have the proper tools for the job of remodeling your bathroom.
The last I recommend to you is to go all out on at least one of the fixtures of your bathroom. With all the cost-saving tips you should have some extra to make part of your bathroom look really great at become the attraction of your bathroom.
