Is your bathroom looking dated, or does the layout create frustration for you or your family? A professional bathroom remodel can drastically increase usability and comfort, and increase your home’s value for less than you might expect.
However, the bathroom remodel process is not simple. It takes a professional bathroom remodeler to do it right, and Matrix Home Solutions is here to help! As you begin the planning process, use the following tips and tricks to make sure you don’t miss anything critical.
- Decide on a Time Frame
- Develop a Project Scope
- Determine Your Vision of a Perfect Bathroom
- Establish Your Budget
- Rely on the Pros
Let’s dive into each of these tips.
1. Decide on a Time Frame
First, determine how soon the project must be completed. Often, people plan renovations around major life changes, like babies. But even if you don’t have a little one on the way, you may have non-negotiables in your schedule. Does the reno need to be done before the in-laws come in June? Before you leave on a trip?
Make sure you’re clear with your contractors and designers about any of these schedule considerations, as well. While there are many factors to consider when expecting a certain timeline (ordering necessary parts, team availability, etc), starting an open conversation with your contractors on their timelines is always helpful!
2. Develop a Project Scope
Next, you need to set a scope for the project. Are you planning to retain any fixtures? Are you remodeling around an existing shower? You need to know absolutely everything you’re planning to replace — and everything you’re planning to keep. Determining project scope early can help to keep your budget in check down the road.
3. Determine Your Vision of a Perfect Bathroom
Once you’ve settled on a scope for your bathroom remodel, it’s time to decide what you want your bathroom to look like. Maybe you already know exactly the style you’re going for, and even some of the fixtures you want. That’s great! But if not, now is the time to start making basic decisions.
If you’re not sure about your design direction, it’s best not to guess. Here at Matrix Bath Systems, we offer free design consultations. You can work with one of our experienced designers to find a look that works in your space and within your budget.
4. Establish Your Budget
Speaking of budget: it’s time to settle what you are willing to spend on this bathroom remodel. When you work with a professional bathroom remodeler, you should get a reliable estimate of costs before the work begins. Barring any unexpected developments, this estimate should help you keep within your budget goals.
5. Rely on the Pros
Planning a bathroom remodel is a complex process, and it’s not one you should try to do yourself. You need an experienced bathroom remodeler like Matrix Bath Systems, a firm with the experience to take your bathroom remodel ideas and turn them into professionally executed reality.
