Are you wanting to remodel your bathroom? If you plan to remodel your home on your own, there are a few things to consider before starting any renovations. At Morrison Plumbing, we have created a list of the top 4 bathroom remodeling tips for homeowners. Whether you want to upgrade your bathroom before you sell or you need to update your bathroom to fit your family, these tips can be helpful to get you ready for your big remodel. We have a team of contractors who are ready to help you with your bathroom project.
Consider Where The Door and Toilet Is
The location of everything in your bathroom is important to consider. The most important placement is the door and toilet. You don’t want the toilet too close to the door which could make opening and closing the door a challenge. You also don’t want to make eye contact with someone as they walk in you using the bathroom. Most bathrooms have the toilet far from the door to keep both of those things from happening. If you are having trouble with placement, our design team at Morrison Plumbing can help you create a great layout and even do all of the remodelings for you!
Set a Time Frame
Are you trying to have your remodeling done before a certain date? Maybe you have an in-law moving in or you are planning on selling your home soon. Setting a time frame for the project can help you stay motivated as well as keeping you on track with the project. If this is your first time remodeling, we recommend calling us at (618) 703-5700 to speak to a professional about how we can help you with remodeling services that fit into a realistic time frame.
Make a Budget
Even the smallest remodels need a budget, especially if you are hiring a professional. You have to consider the cost of labor, materials, permits, and surprise expenses. Before starting the remodel, it is important to create a budget you can afford that can cover all of the needed costs as well as cover unexpected purchases to replace any broken material or other remodeling surprises. If you are not sure what exactly to budget, Morrison Plumbing can work with you to create a budget you can afford as well as provide the labor to give you your dream bathroom.
Know When to Hire a Remodeling Contractor
If you are not an experienced contractor, it can be a challenge to start and finish a bathroom remodel successfully. There is a lot of skill that goes into making everything work out in the end. It is best to know exactly what you need to do before starting. If you have any doubts, it is probably best to hire a contractor to save you from headaches in the future. This will also ensure the remodeling job is done correctly the first time.
