Step 1: Choose The Design
Designing your new bathroom is the first step on your beautiful journey. There are a couple of ways you can do this. Firstly, you can come up with a design all by yourself from scratch. Or, you can find bathroom designs online or in stores and copy them. Regardless, you’ll still need to pick and choose all the different tile colors, sink designs, bathroom styles, etc. Everything needs to be decided before you move onto the second step which begins the renovation process. Ultimately, you should have a clear visual design of your new bathroom at the end of this stage.
Step 2: Find A Contractor
Unless you’re highly gifted in the art of DIY and have experience doing handiwork and plumbing, you’ll need some professional help. Now, if you’re wondering how to select a bathroom renovations contractor, don’t worry, it’s a fairly simple process. There are three key things to consider; experience, price, and reviews. You want to hire contractors that are experienced and have proof of previous work that they can show you. But, they need to be reasonably priced within your budget, and they must have positive reviews from other customers. Find someone that ticks all three boxes, and you’re ready to start the renovations.
Step 3: Get Out Of The Way
When you have a contractor in doing all the bathroom work, you want them to finish as quickly as possible. This doesn’t mean you want them to rush the job, you just want the disruptions in your house to be over quickly. The best way to ensure a great job gets done fast is by getting out of the way. Avoid distracting the contractors as they work by making sure people in your house are out of their hair. This might mean using a neighbor’s bathroom or staying with family until the job is done. This means they can work without having to stop as someone needs the toilet or getting asked questions by your kids all the time.
If this seems extremely simple, that’s because it is! These are the three main steps you should follow to upgrade your bathroom. Start with the design, find people to make the design a reality, then give them space to get the job done in a time that suits you. Before you know it, you’ll have an upgraded bathroom that makes those early mornings more bearable!
