Any remodeling project in your home is a fun way to add new life to the space. But it can also be a hassle to prepare for contractors working in your home, and deciding on design elements can lead to headaches. Take the following steps to prepare for a remodeling project!



Before scheduling a remodel, you have some research homework. Research will establish what style or design you want to achieve and the cost. Doing research first provides an outline on what to expect, but will help you with other factors like a realistic budget and timeline.

Example: If you are preparing to update your master bathroom with sleek new flooring, research what styles you like and fit your home. Then factor in the cost of materials and time.


Get Inspired

Finding inspiration online can help create a design scheme that appeals to you. Other bathroom designs work for a reason, but many contain elements that may not mesh with your lifestyle. So finding multiple sources of inspiration can help create a style that is suitable for your home.


Example: Are you considering adding a bathtub in the kids bathroom? Search for designs that will fit the space you currently have, and that the kids can grow into!


Talk with Professionals

A professional contractor has the experience and knowledge to help walk you through the finer details of your design. Contact a bathroom expert to get their professional insight before making any final decisions. They can give you a quick overview on the pros and cons of your design choices and help to establish what is realistic and what isn’t.


Example: If you are trying to make your bathroom appear larger, a professional can give you tips like enclosing your shower or bath with frameless glass to expand the look and feel of all design elements. 


Measure, and Measure Again

Before you start any bathroom remodel, you want to double, or even triple, check your measurements. You want to plan out and ensure that all elements of your bathroom can fit together in one space without any overlap or intrusion. If you don’t measure the space correctly, you can end up with cramped fixtures or simply not enough space in your bathroom.


Think Green

Bathtubs in bathrooms can burn through a great deal of water and electricity on a daily basis. A remodel can provide a good opportunity to review your appliances to see what can be replaced with more earth friendly options. “Green” options not only provide more power efficiency, but will reduce costs in the long term and can be beneficial towards resale value.


Choosing Materials

The old adage of “you get what you pay for” is true of bathroom material, the more expensive material typically lasts longer, is more durable and is more pleasant to use, whereas the cheaper material is less durable and can break down through repeated use.

Remember that all bathroom fixtures will experience heavy moisture and humidity so you want to choose materials that can withstand this environment!


Plan for the Come & Go

During the remodel, you want to reduce the number of people running through the job site. Plan different entrances and exits to avoid conflict. Create alternative pathways and move objects in easy to reach locations until the job is complete.
