No matter the size of the bathroom or how often its used, a remodel can make a big difference. If you’re looking to remodel your bathroom you may be wondering how to get started. Working with a professional bathroom remodeling company is always a great way to get started. They can guide you through the entire process. If, however, you’re not quite ready, but want to know more about the things you should do and shouldn’t do, here are some things to think about.

The Do’s

The list for things to do in a modern bathroom remodel is endless so we’ve narrowed it down to the top three.

  1. Use Quality Products Meant for Bathrooms – Not all cabinets, fixtures and tile are intended for the moisture and humidity of the bathroom. Using quality products will ensure you’re happy with the remodel for years to come.
  2. Lighting & Ventilation – If you don’t have natural light, consider adding some if possible. It’s one of the biggest improvements you can make to any bathroom. If not, make sure you have sufficient lighting in the whole space, not just over the mirrors. Ventilation is also key; some newer vents are whisper quiet and worth the few additional dollars.
  3. Only Spend 80% of Your Budget – This can be a tough recommendation to follow, but you’ll be happy you did when the unexpected is discovered during demo or you find the perfect light fixture that’s a few hundred dollars more than the one you originally planned on.

The Don’ts

Perhaps the biggest don’t is if you don’t have the time, tools or experiences, don’t try to do it alone. We’ve come in after homeowners have demoed their bathrooms and started the project. Often, we have to remove what they did because it was outside of code or there was another problem. Also, don’t neglect making a plan. If your bathroom remodeling company is moving plumbing, they’ll be turning off your water for the day or more. If it’s your only bathroom, you may need to move somewhere else for the duration of your remodel. Having a plan throughout the process is key.
