If you’re considering update to your home but you are not sure where to start, you should look no further than your bathroom. It may not be the first room that comes to mind, but whether you realize or not, a lot of your life is spent in your home bathroom. It is a room that you want to be comfortable to use since you spend so much time in there getting ready, putting on makeup, or even just relaxing with a nice bubble bath. The bathroom is a great place to start a remodeling project for several reasons. One it is usually the smallest room in the house so it can be a quicker project that is started and finished faster. Also, since most newer homes are built with an open concept style, often the bathroom is one the of the few closed off areas that is can actually be completely separated with doors. This separation can give you a little more freedom with your design choices as the bathroom does not necessarily need to coincide with any of your other decorating options. If you want to paint it bright red or stencil it with fish to give it an Under the Sea theme, that absolutely will not clash with your neutral kitchen concept. The third reason that bathroom renovations are great projects is that you have more flexibility with deciding whether you want to use a renovations contractor or if you want to do it yourself. Finally, even though the bathroom is a smaller space, there are limitless possibilities of how you can modify it and give it your own personal touch.
If you want to undertake a remodel of your bathroom, there are several changes that you can make on your own, but if you are looking for a complete remodel of your bathroom, it is best to consult a professional bathroom renovation contractor. Using a professional can save you money in the long run by making sure that you have a complete and realistic plan for the changes you want to implement. A professional will also already have connections with plumbers, electricians, and the inside track on sink or tub sales and discounts that they can pass on to you to help save you money and headaches.
I you want to start a bathroom renovation, but you are not sure if you need to hire a professional or if you will be able to make your prospective updates on your own, many companies will come to your home and complete a complementary estimate of your space. The estimate can include a breakdown of cost per item and they can point out small projects in your bathroom space that can be done on your own. The projects that you can do yourself will vary depending on your skills and comfort level with construction, but they can range from simple painting and stenciling, laying tile and grout, removing and installing new cabinets and new mirrors and even replacing light fixtures. For more involved projects it is a good idea to get a professional involved.
