When done right, your bathroom remodeling project can provide you efficiency and comfort for years to come. You’ll not only enjoy a beautiful and functional space but also benefit from the increased home value and energy savings. Planning for it can be straightforward, as long as you learn the several essentials you need to consider.
Today, Total Bath Systems LuxStone™ of Connecticut, one of the leading tub-to-shower conversion contractors, shares some do’s and don’ts of bathroom remodeling.
1. DO create a contingency fund.
It is not uncommon to encounter surprises during home improvement projects. Your project could run into various issues like hidden water damage resulting from a leaking shower pan or running toilet. Setting aside at least 10% of the total budget should help cover such emergencies. With a contingency fund, you can keep your project on track and within your budget.
2. DO adhere to local building codes.
Even if your remodel is a minor one, following building codes and securing permits are still important. By complying, you not only protect yourself but also your investment. Also, when you work with walk-in bath companies like ours, you won’t worry about getting the permits yourself.
3. DO keep adequate ventilation in mind.
Mold and mildew can grow and spread in areas with excessive moisture, including your bathroom. See to it that the room has right-sized windows to ensure ventilation and reduce moisture levels. A bathroom exhaust fan can also help.
4. DON’T get carried away by trends.
It’s not a bad thing to stick to the latest bathroom design trends. However, keep in mind that these can come and go, becoming outdated in just a few years. You don’t want to keep on updating your bathroom, so if you’re not sure about your desired design, consulting with remodeling pros helps a lot.
5. DON’T do the project yourself.
