Wiring and plumbing mingling in a small space often make bathroom renovations tricky. Preparing beforehand can help the entire project progress more smoothly. Every bathroom project is unique, but if you’re getting ready for a renovation project, there are some things you’ll want to do before the work begins. Here are some steps you can take to prepare for a bathroom renovation.
Plan the Flow of Traffic for the Renovation Contractor
Figure out where the renovation contractor can park his vehicle and the best route to take through your house. Then put down some old scraps of carpet or towels along the path to protect your floors.
Remove Objects Before the Bathroom Renovation
Bathrooms often have many items that can get in the way and make renovations harder. Before your custom renovation begins, take time to remove these items from your bathroom. Some of the items you’ll remove include the following:
- Trash cans
- Toilet cover
Consider Advanced Prep for Bathroom Renovations
Some do-it-yourselfers may be able to do more advanced prep for bathroom renovations. Always talk with your renovation contractor before beginning any advanced prep. Some examples include removing tile, turning off the water, and removing shower doors.
Prepare a Custom Renovation Budget
An essential part of preparing for a bathroom renovation is preparing a budget. Determine how much you can afford to spend and how much the project will cost before beginning renovations. If you don’t have enough for the project, consider changing the plan to fit your budget or taking time to save money until you have enough to complete the renovations.
