A Spa Retreat

When I moved into my current home, I was more than a little disappointed with the master bathroom. This small restroom resembled a dark cave more than it did a spa retreat. After nearly 10 years of saving money, my husband and I are almost ready to get the master bathroom of our dreams. We are planning to hire a remodelling contractor. This professional will give us the more spacious bathroom we need. We will be replacing our bathtub and shower combination with a separate walk-in shower and a soaker tub. We are also replacing our one sink with two sinks. On this blog, you will learn how a remodeling contractor can give you a spa retreat in your master bathroom. Enjoy!

How To Plan A Bathroom Renovation

Bathroom renovations are typically large projects that can take quite some time to complete. For this reason, it is well worth your time to spend some time planning a bathroom renovation before it happens. One of the biggest mistakes people make with renovation projects is underestimating the complexity involved. People commonly make this mistake with bathroom renovations, where every major appliance involves plumbing. Prevent this mistake from occurring in your renovation by planning ahead now.

Step 1: Flesh out Your Inspiration.

You've likely already had a sudden burst of inspiration to renovate your bathroom. Do you want to "go green" and upgrade to all new appliances? Do you want to gut out your bathroom and redesign it from the ground up? Once you've had your initial flash of inspiration, flesh it out by logically thinking about what changes would be made. It would be beneficial to even make a list. Take your inspiration and make it a cohesive mission statement for your remodel process. This added thought process will pave the way to step 2.

Step 2: Create a Comprehensive Plan

You'll need to create a plan that encompasses everything you'll be doing during your renovation. Depending on the scope of what you have in mind, it may be worthwhile to involve a contractor, like Apple Creek Homes & Renovations, at this step. A contractor will be able to discuss every decision you'll encounter, every piece of work that will be involved and even help you create a budget.

The budget is perhaps the most important part from this step. You'll need to consider all extras that you might want as well as the paid labor that may be involved. The more accurate your budget, the more pleasant of a renovation experience you'll have.

Step 3: Buy Your Materials and Get to Work

Now that you have a comprehensive plan and budget that will help your initial inspiration become a reality, it's time to get to work! The first step might be demolishing your current bathroom, or at least removing fixtures that are going to be replaced. It's wise to purchase all of the required materials and new appliances before the project officially begins so that you'll have everything you need on hand. One of the biggest delays in any renovation is not having everything you need on hand when you need it. Take exact measurements of everything before making your purchase. Shop around for these materials; you might discover that the convenience of buying them through a home improvement store outweighs the few dollars you might save by ordering them online.
