Bathroom remodeling can be tricky, but not if you know what you are doing! Use these six do’s and don’ts from Re-Bath of Pueblo to turn the bathroom of your dreams into a reality.
DO set a budget. The fastest way to break the bank during your bathroom remodel is by not setting a budget. An easy way to save money is to keep your layout the way it is. Focus on upgrading your fixtures, not relocating them – moving your plumbing system can quickly rack up costs.
DON’T skimp on the things you use the most. There are plenty of opportunities to save money during the remodeling process, but there are a handful of things you should not skimp on. These include the things you use most – your fixtures, faucet, drawer handles and slides, and hinges.
DO make sure there is enough light. Lighting is an undervalued and overlooked component to bathrooms. You want to make sure there is a good balance of natural and artificial lighting, as well as sufficient task lighting around personal grooming areas.
DON’T fall into fads. Going for the latest looks is always tempting, but they might be outdated in a couple of years. Instead, play it safe and go with a timeless look that you will enjoy for years down the road.
DO think of resale value. When remodeling your bathroom, don’t just factor in your personal preferences; consider how your choices will impact your home’s resale value. Even if you have no plans of putting your home on the market, you never know what the future holds.
DON’T trust just anyone with your remodel. Your bathroom remodel will only come out as good as the contractor you hire to complete it. The same job done by two different contractors can yield two very different results. Be thorough with your search for a good contractor – make sure to choose one who is licensed, insured, and can provide several references.
