Many people believe that redesigning a small bathroomwill only take a few days or much less time than rebuilding a larger one. It isnot always the case. Depending on how many items you change in the bathroom,your contractor will have to go through all the same stages as if it were alarger bathroom. However, planningincludes determining the duration of the remodeling work and someintermediate measures like ordering and purchasing tiles, fixtures,custom-built vanity, or cabinets to ensure they are available when yourcontractor requires them. Planning time is significant for people who only haveone bathroom in their home since they will need to figure out someplace toshower and use the restroom while the bathroom is disassembling.


Sequence Of Works

When it comes to bathroom renovation, following aspecific sequence might save you a lot of clean-up time and blunders. Whetheryou are removing sheetrock or merely repainting, you should always begin at thetop of the room. Renovate your ceilingfirst, then your walls, and finally your floors to protect your new components.

Unrecognized Issues

Consider a "full gut" if you are doing asubstantial renovation to your bathroom. When done by a skilled professional, you will have a problem-free bathroom that will addenormous value to your house for many years to come. Water damage is the most common hidden problem you may encounter, depending on theage of your property and how well it builds. Look for structural flaws in thefloor structure, inadequately vented plumbing, old corroded piping, non-waterprooftile shower/tub surrounds, and other issues.

Style And Practicality In Design

When first starting, consider the look you want for yourbathroom. There are numerous elements to consider, such as paint color, tileselection, vanities, showers, tubs, faucets, etc. It can rapidly becomeoverwhelming, so start with some research. You can begin by assemblingcomponents that you like into what will become the final design of thebathroom, or you can choose a design item to feature in the bathroom and then develop the rest ofthe bathroom design around it. Design and utility should go hand in hand, sothink about who will use the bathroom and how they will use it, how they willresell the property in the future, and how the bathroom design will fit in withthe rest of the house.


The overall size of the bathroom (typically the smallestroom in the house), the positioning of existing plumbing lines and electricalwiring, and the typical standard measurements of bathroom fixtures are the three key constraints that make sizematter in the bathroom restoration. Be sure you have the exact measurements andspecs when you go to the store. More aggravating than trying to shop withoutdimensions is buying items that don't fit.


Are you hiring a contract for a potentiallydo-it-yourself project? Yes, given the intricacy of the project and thechallenging operations required, that is a wise decision (electrical, tiling,plumbing, etc.). As a result, don't neglect the benefits of hiring a contractorto spare yourself a lot of trouble and time.

Plumbing Accessories And Features

No renovation is complete unless the next fixtures andfeatures are remodeled or repaired: shower, bathtub, toilet, bidet, sink,faucets, and showerheads, to name a few. Mirrors and shower doors should alsobe updated or repaired. You may also update the style of your bathroom byreplacing door handles, drawer pulls, and shower door hardware. If you have thefunds, a new pair of shower doors can radically transform the appearance ofyour room.

Shelving, Cabinets, And Storage

Planning cabinets, shelving, and storage solutions arerugged in most circumstances, and it's significantly worse in small,irregularly shaped rooms like the bathroom. They must be functional,accommodating all of your belongings while keeping everything easilyaccessible; they must fit into the available space and make the most of it;finally, they must be fashionable.

The Walls And The Flooring

Almost any material can cover bathroom floors and walls as long as it iswaterproof, naturally or through an impermeable finish. Ceramics, marble, andgranite tiles offer attractive and long-lasting bathroom flooring and wallsurfaces depending on your budget and style. Additional flooring possibilitiesinclude cement (painted or stained), sheet vinyl, or vinyl tiles, which areless expensive and look nicer than they used to. Whatever you choose, considertwo important factors when selecting bathroom flooring: durability and slipresistance.


Without appropriate lighting, a bathroom may becomeimpractical or even dangerous, so plan for design lighting that is both usefuland adds ambiance. Plan to maximize natural light first, and for artificiallight, at least 4 watts of incandescent lighting per square foot isrecommended.


Although they may appear tiny in the grand scheme of thejob, no renovation is complete without new accessories. Surprisingly, smallpurchases such as fresh towels, washcloths, soap dishes, mirrors, towel racks,and bath mats add to the total expense. If you're on a tight budget, new handtowels are preferable to nothing.


In a damp space like the bathroom, ventilation iscritical. It is also a complex task that demands careful planning: choosing theright fan, establishing the optimum installation site, and dealing withelectrical wiring. Poor ventilation can cause your bathroom to become damp,moldy, and even dangerous to your health. On the other hand, a well-ventilatedbathroom is more than just a healthy bathroom. Continuous circulation can alsohelp to keep any wooden trim or fixtures from rotting and building insulationfrom becoming saturated.
