Bathroom renovations are always fun to start. The thought of changing things up and decorating your bathroom to fit your taste and style is extremely exciting. However, it can also be quite the challenge from beginning to end if you have not properly prepared!
We have seen many people start a bathroom renovation project, and then abandon the project mid-way because they did not plan properly. You may think that going on YouTube and finding a DIY video is enough, but that is not usually the case. There are specific jobs you should leave to professionals. There are also certain things you should do to make sure everything gets taken care of smoothly and the way you want. This way at the end of the project, you get to walk happily into the newly renovated restroom of your dreams!
So today at Absolute Glassworks, we are going to give you great tips to help you start your custom bathroom renovations the right way!
What's Your Dream?
First, you must understand what type of renovation you want. This is the ideal starting point before taking on such a project. Do you just want to change the floors, or do a complete remodel? Do you just want to paint, or change out all of the fixtures? Or, maybe you only want to update your shower with a custom glass shower door? Be sure to sit down and write a list of things you want to renovate for your restroom.
How Much Wiggle Room?
After you decide out what you want, you should then check out your budget. How much money do you have to "play with" to get the job done? A helpful exercise is to consult with a contractor to see if what you want is possible with your budget. They may be able to give you a recommendation of what materials to use, or even provide some alternative ideas, to help you accomplish the look you want within your budget.
Please keep in mind, when hiring a contractor be sure to check their references online and through local contacts and phone calls, and shop around for a trustworthy contractor for your project. Ask them what their specialty is and how many similar projects they have done.
Determine Your Glass Needs
You should also determine your glass desires for your bathroom renovation. If you want to remodel your shower with a custom glass shower door, then check out home magazines to see options to help determine what kind of shower door enclosure you want. Call or stop by our showroom to see various examples and installations. You might even go outside the norm and go with an open concept enclosure. In addition, be sure to examine if you want a new mirror as well, which there are many different sizes and shapes to choose from that can really accent and highlight your bathroom!
Toilet and Sink?
For homes that were built more than 20 years ago, you may want to consider getting a new toilet and sink. It is also a good idea to bring in a referred plumber to to examine the plumbing to make sure it is running smoothly. Ultimately, this may help you save money on your utilities as well as save resources if you upgrade your plumbing system.
