Planning Your Bathroom Remodel

Adequately plans for your bathroom remodel will save you time, money and aggravation.

The results of this project will be with you for many years and it is important to get it right. Overcome the tendency to just jump in without first formulating and planning your bath remodel. 

Plan your bathroom remodel on paper or with software

Planning your bathroom remodel can be done on graph paper, but it is tedious. If you are changing your arrangement to be more functional, or the dimensions of some bathroom fixtures or cabinetry will change it is important to get good measurements and determine best placement.

As I mentioned, planning your remodel can be done with graph paper, but it really is tedious especially if you want to try different placements until you get the best new arrangement. Design software is available that can help you get this done, get a good visual of what your new bathroom will look like and how it will function, and save you a lot of time. You can also print out copies to take with you when you are shopping.

 Planning bathroom remodeling steps in outline form

It is also wise to make an outline of the individual elements and projects that make up your bathroom remodeling project. This is best accomplished by making an outline. List each main project within the main task of remodeling your bath, and what needs to be done to complete each task. This will help you plan what materials and tools are needed, so you are prepared. Having to stop work and run to the home improvement store because you don't have all the needed materials or tools costs you valuable time and will delay getting the job completed. 

The other reason for the outline, is that it can help you avoid backtracking or making costly mistakes. By getting it written down, you have to analyze what you are going to do, and how it will relate to other steps in your remodel. Each step of your remodeling project relates to other parts, and having a written plan will help you to see which comes first and saves you the aggravation and additional expense of tearing something out and having to do it over.

Remodeling a bathroom can be a costly project. By taking the time to plan your bathroom remodel thoroughly you will save both time and money and be more likely to come out with a finished product you can be very proud of and enjoy for many years.
