What To Determine In Terms Of Bathroom Remodeling
Opting for revamping your house whether it’s for bathroom remodeling or kitchen, re-carpeting, new flooring, painting or a number of projects involving what exactly it is that needs to be updated, replaced or completely removed will be a daunting job. Bathroom remodeling, while seemingly simple especially if it involves a small bathroom remodeling project, still needs decisions to be made based on requirement, time commitment and cost.
Bathroom Remodeling Needs
Whatever the size of the bathroom, they all have the same basic components of bathtub, shower, toilet and sink. Older houses could have a bathtub only with no shower while newer houses might have a shower and bath but will accommodate a spa sized tub versus a standard tub. Standard or out of date sinks could be replaced and new cabinets and counter tops can be added or replaced as well as newer water saving faucets and toilets. They are simple bathroom remodeling needs that should be considered and looked at before starting any remodeling.
Once it is decided what will be done to the bathroom, it is usually essential to know how long the bathroom remodeling will take and how long you might be without facilities. It is best to plan on not having the utilization of the bathroom for a few days.
This can be an issue especially if there is only one bathroom in the house. If cosmetic remodeling such as sink or floor tile and counter top replacement is being done, this should take no more than a day to set up but time must be allotted for drying of grout for tile floors. Complete remodeling of the bathroom like bathtub replacement and tiling of a shower can take much longer.
Cost of Bathroom Remodeling
Cost of any bathroom remodeling project will run from cheap to very expensive. The cost factor will be determined by what is being done, whether or not you’re doing the work yourself, cost of materials, cost of labor if employing a contractor and the quality of replacement fixtures that can run from high quality low-end pricing to high-end name brand pricing.
If you are working in a budget, buy the best product that will have the most deterioration. This could include toilets, sinks, bathtub fixtures and shower fixtures. Other areas to take into consideration when bathroom remodeling is to use ceramic tile flooring, porcelain bathtubs and ceramic tiled shower stalls as these will hold up longer as compared to vinyl and plastic.
