It’s time to plan your bathroom remodeling project. You have your design ideas and hired your contractors to set the plans in motion—but there are other things to keep in mind when embarking on a big project such as this. InsideOut Renovations & Home Repair in Lincoln, Nebraska, explains what to expect during your bathroom remodeling project.
Here are three things to keep in mind during your remodel:
- Proper Planning: A big remodel deserves a lot of planning to make sure everything will be executed properly. From design ideas to ordering the correct, quality materials, you and your contractor shouldn’t rush the planning stage. This helps the process run more smoothly, even if obstacles arise. Alongside planning, prepare yourself for a long process. Your bathroom may be out of commission for months, depending on what you’re doing.
- Demolition: Depending on how big of a renovation it is, you may need to simply replace a few parts and fixtures or demolish the entire bathroom down to the studs. This stage also may reveal hidden issues in the walls, which could alter your bathroom remodeling plan. A good remodeling contractor will know how to proceed and will explain options to keep the remodel on point. The demolition stage will also cause dust around your home as well as a lot of noise—it’s best to be prepared for the disruption in your every day life.
- Plumbing & Electric: When tackling the bathroom, you will need a licensed plumber and electrician to complete certain parts of the remodel. While some fixtures are easy to rearrange, a complete renovation requires the knowledge of plumbers and electricians to install pipes and fixtures properly so they are up to code. Any rewiring should be done by an electrician, and any new plumbing or pipe installation should be completed by a plumber. By using the correct people for each stage, you avoid delays and problems in the future.
