The Do’s & Don’ts of Bathroom Remodeling, Utica, Iowa

A home remodeling job is a huge commitment, which frequently takes a lot of time, money, and energy. If you’re thinking about embarking on a bathroom remodel, you want have it completed right the first time. Below are a few do’s and don’ts to keep in mind before you take on this major project. 


Plan for the Unexpected

When tiles are taken up and the wallpaper is removed, you never know what you’ll uncover: there could be water damage, mold, or even insects. Consumer Reports® recommends budgeting an extra 10% to 15% for unforeseen bathroom circumstances. Then, if there aren’t any unexpected problems, you’ll have additional decorating money.

Use Professionals

Incorporate Additional Storage

There’s nothing worse than having a beautiful new room with nowhere to keep your belongings. A good designer will help you plan ahead by arranging more space for towels, toiletries, paper goods, and anything else you need to stow.


Skimp on Materials

It’s not worth saving a few dollars upfront if you have to replace the materials in a year or two. If you’re on a tight budget, save money on light fixtures or faucets since these items are easy to switch out.

Go Too Trendy

Bathrooms are notorious for becoming dated quickly. Unless you don’t mind a full remodel every few years, try to incorporate a classic or timeless look. Wall color and different towels are a reasonable way to change the look while keeping the more expensive finishes the same.

Rush the Job

You may want your new bathroom promptly, but it’s important to have the job done right, even if it takes a little longer. Planning ahead with your home remodeling contractor allows you to see how much time you need, and hopefully, keep you from getting too anxious.
