Bathroom refurbishments can be a big project to take on. When you redesign, you will want to be sure you get it right the first time around. Getting the perfect redesign for your bathroom can be done if you ask yourself these questions before starting, as laid out by Blair Stover Interior Designs.
What is your budget?
This is probably the most important question you can ask. Have a set budget before you start the remodel. If you don’t lay out a guideline for how much you can and cannot spend, you are likely to spend way more than you intended to.
What look do you want?
Realize that bathroom refurbishments don’t happen often. Most people replace their bathroom once every seven to ten years. Others wait and remodel once every fifteen years. You’re going to want to make sure that what you plan is what you want for the next several years at least.
Do you plan to move soon?
Remodeling bathrooms can add value to a home you’re trying to sell. If you’re looking to sell, see what you can do to add value for as little as possible. You’ll want to stick with neutrals and inoffensive pieces, ones that are easy for everyone to like. Avoid bright colors, as these typically don’t go over well with buyers.
Are your measurements right?
Before starting, double check your measurements. One mismeasurement can undo a lot of work, and it happens all the time.
What kind of tile?
Tile can be a deal breaker in the bathroom for buyers, as well as a health point for owners. Some tiles are hygienic, others are not, and waterproof is a must. Tiling also makes a bathroom, adding character and design. Be sure you purchase 10% more tile than you need, that way you have spares.
