Remodeling your bathroom may provide years of pleasure and increase your resell value and attraction for future home buyers. But not all remodeling is created equal, and a shoddy plumbing remodel may lead to frustration and make it impossible to sell your home. With so many moving parts crammed into such a small space, hiring a plumbing remodel specialist like Craig’s Plumbing is a must.
Here is a list of do’s and don’ts for your bathroom remodeling project.
Do, Set a Budget. Make sure that there is room in your budget for the unexpected, such as hidden water damage, hidden problems, or bad fittings and existing pipes. Craig’s Plumbing will do exploratory work early in the project to make sure that surprises are kept to a minimum.
Don’t Develop a Budget During the Project. Unexpected expenses can cause budget nightmares and for your project to continue on incomplete for long periods of time.
Do, Hide the Toilet. Keeping your toilet discreet behind a wall or in it’s own room can be both stylish and functional.
Don’t, Put the Toilet in the Open. Placing your toilet in an open area of your bathroom may cause the room to be unusable by your spouse or siblings. Even the placement of an armoire or piece of furniture can create a discreet barrier.
Do, Choose Durable & Stylish Surfaces. Stone, porcelain and composite surfaces are available in a wide range of colors, styles and prices.
Don’t, Use Porous or Raw Materials. Other than their tendency to break down, porous and raw materials, unstained or unprotected, may take on bacteria and other potentially hazardous items.
Do, Keep Consistent Themes. Choosing a material or color to tie the bathroom together using consistent materials, colors and patterns will make your bathroom feel more custom and luxurious.
Don’t, Use Hodgepodge Decor. Using combinations of colors, patterns and materials may create a custom feel. Using random decor can cause the most relaxing room in your home to be a confused eyesore.
Do, Splurge on Your Shower. One place in your bathroom to splurge is your shower. Adding a bench, dual shower heads, quality enclosures, and steam generators will give you the in-home spa you crave. Always consider water efficiency in your shower.
Don’t, Eliminate the Tub. While a tub is not necessary for most bathrooms in your home, at least one tub should remain in your home for the instances you may need it.
