bathroom contractors can make the remodeling process more enjoyable, but there are still at least three things you will want to consider.
Budget. One of the first things you should do is to establish a budget. Decide
how much you are willing to spend on a remodel. Because the actual
remodel may cost more than you have originally planned, it is often a
good idea to establish a lower budget with the understanding that you
may need to raise your budget slightly later.
You should have a vision of how you imagine your bathroom looking in the
end. Do you want everything in the bathroom replaced with new, or is
there something you want to keep? Maybe you have a vision of specific
tiling, or you want the shower replaced by a tub. Perhaps you want
everything in the bathroom color-coordinated. While you do not
necessarily need the exact items picked out before hiring a contractor,
you should at least have a vision of how you want your bathroom looking
Unless your budget and space are unlimited, there might be sacrifices
you will need to make. For example, if you have a smaller bathroom, you
may have to forego having both a shower and a tub. If your budget is a
little lower, your dream jetted tub might have to become an alcove tub.
If your dream sink only comes in white, and you had your heart set on a
black bathroom, you will have to decide which is more important. Early
on, you should decide what you are willing to sacrifice and what you
consider a necessity for your bathroom remodel.
While the end product of your bathroom remodel may not turn out how you
planned it originally, having an idea of your budget, what you envision
as the end result, and what you are willing to sacrifice can help the
process get started easier.
