The bathroom is one of the most common areas of the home to have renovated. This can be an upgrade that improves the usability of this important part of the home as well as the overall value of the property. However, your renovation will need to be highly detailed and organized if you are to ensure that it is a success.
Have The Bathroom Inspected For Moisture Damage
Prior to starting the renovation project, the entire bathroom will need to be thoroughly inspected for water damage. This room is often the most prone to moisture damage as a result of bathing and showering. If there is significant water damage, repairs should be completed prior to any work on the renovation starting. Otherwise, you may find that the necessary repairs are extensive, which could eat into your project's budget.
Carefully Consider What You Want From The Bath Or Shower
The bathtub or shower is one of the most important features of the bathroom. As a result, it is common for this feature to be upgraded during a major renovation project. However, some homeowners may fail to give the appropriate amount of consideration to their desires for their new bathtub or shower. For example, if you have mobility issues, opting for a walk-in tub can be an effective option for allowing you to safely and comfortably use the tub.
Reduce The Bathroom's Water Usage
There are many upgrades that can be used to reduce the amount of water that this part of the home uses. One of these steps can be to choose new appliances and plumbing fixtures that are specifically designed to use as little water as possible. Homeowners often fail to consider high-efficiency plumbing items due to thinking that these devices will have unpleasantly low water pressure. Yet, many of these appliances will provide almost identical levels of water pressure.
Have A Plan For Being Without A Bathroom
If you only have one bathroom, having this part of the home renovated can be a disruptive experience. As a result, you will need to have a thorough plan in place for addressing the period of time when you will be without this part of your home. For most renovation projects, this will only require a few days to complete, but the exact time will depend on the complexity of the changes that are being made. One way to reduce the inconvenience that this disruption will cause is to place a portable toilet on your property.
