Did you know that the bathroom is the second most popular room in the house to remodel after kitchens? The top 5 reasons for renovating bathrooms are:

  • To upgrade features and fixtures

  • To make space more functional

  • To increase home value

  • To address changing lifestyle or family needs

  • To improve organization or storage

There are 7 things to keep in mind for your next renovation

  • Make a list of what you want to change.

  • Consider your resources: Time, Budge, and Energy when deciding between an update and on overhaul

  • Set a budget: Once you have figured out what you can spend, subtract 20-30% from this number and set aside for contingencies.

  • Put together a rough draft of the layout on paper.

  • If you are doing the work yourself ALWAYS measure twice to avoid making corrections or returns later.

  • If you are ripping up the floors, start fresh and replace the underlying floor. This will get rid of any water damaged undersurface due to the humid environment of the bathroom.

  • Before the renovating begins, if you have a second bathroom, move all personal items over to make finding your items easy to find and you are not hunting through the renovation mess.
