Bathroom remodeling projects can make your space more attractive and add value to your home. But before you decide to start your new bath renovation read this!
Home Remodeling Projects- How to Find a Home Remodeler for Your Bathroom Makeover
So you’re ready to give your bathroom a makeover and you’re not quite sure where to start. When we decided it was time to give our bathroom a facelift we had to determine whether it was best to make it a DIY project and save money or hire a professional. There are pros and cons for going either route and you really need to take the time to go through what will work best for your situation.
Things to consider:
- Budget. Will your budget allow for hiring a company to do your renovations? If not then you should make a list of ways you can cut costs by doing it yourself. Painting, tiling, general cosmetic changes are things you can easily accomplish. Bigger jobs such as plumbing and electrical might be out of your skill set, so you’ll need outside help.
- Time. Another consideration when deciding which route to take is how long can you go without a functional bathroom. Do you have time to do-it-yourself on the weekends and after-work. Or is this a project that you need done quickly, something a professional bathroom remodeling company can achieve.
- Materials. People often forget to factor in the cost of tools when they take on a DIY project. You might have budgeted for the paint, the new tub, sink and the tile. But you’re also going to need a whole list of tools and equipment to pull it off. Ladders, tile saw, sanders, paint supplies etc… It all starts to add up when you’re buying/renting equipment and running back and forth to the hardware store. Be sure this is the most cost effective plan before you jump in.
- Design. You’ve been stalking Pinterest bathroom ideas and decided on a few you love. Even though it may seem as simple as picking out colors, tile, a sink and a tub or even toilets for small bathrooms, there’s a lot more to making sure your bathroom remodel will work. Your bathroom doesn’t have to be the size of the on in Buckingham Palace, just as long as the final result is what you envisioned is all that matters. A designer can give you insight on the layout, what materials hold up to mold and wet areas, what colors will outlast the trend and retain value if you resell your home. Websites similar to https://www.bathroomsandmorestore.co.uk/ have some fantastic design ideas that you could take on board in your own designs.

I just finished reading all about it on your blog, I really enjoyed reading and seeing it all take shape, thanks for sharing, you did a great job picking all your beautiful new fittings, enjoy!
I personally don’t think cutting the cost by working yourself on remodeling rather than hiring a professional is such a good idea. I know a few people who have tried remodeling themselves to cut the cost and ended up spending more than they actually would have if they hired the professional in the first place.
Thank you for keeping it real! Your space turned out gorgeous and you both must be so proud of all your hard work. Not only did you save a heck of a lot doing that yourself, it’s incredible that you stuck to your timeline and got everything done (and photographed and shared on the blog) just in time for your visitors.
I would like to hire a plumber that will be able to replace my bathroom’s tub and old shower. Thank you for suggesting here as well the importance of allocating a realistic budget for this. I also agree with you that it will be smarter to have the space repainted too.
