By nature, a bathroom renovation is one of the more complex renovation projects you can initiate. If renovating a bathroom were any simpler, you’ll probably only going to need one person to do the whole thing. That, however, isn’t the case. You will need a number of skilled tradespeople—professional plumbers included—to help you get the bathroom you have always wanted.
Aside from the trades, there are also a number of other things you need to take into consideration when you undertake a bathroom renovation. Here are some of them.
Always start with the basics
Some home owners immediately jump to the designing part. The more sensible ones, however, make sure they are aware of the basics, from the existing plumbing system to the electrical circuits. When you know everything there is to know about your existing bathroom, only then can you decide on the changes you want done and which parts can be left untouched.
Be sure about the layout
Do you want a self-contained bathroom or one that’s connected to your bedroom? Are you planning on restructuring the bathroom space and taking down walls, retiling the floor or just making minor changes? Whatever you’re planning, it all affects the layout of the entire bathroom, so decide on that one first.
Draw up contingency plans
When you’re getting your bathroom renovated, you certainly would not be able to use it. This wouldn’t be a problem if you have other bathrooms inside your house, but if you only have one bathroom and it’s being renovated, you need to draw up contingency plans as to where you and your family will shower or answer nature’s call. You’d be fortunate if you’re chummy with the next-door neighbours, who will be more than glad to have you use their bathrooms for a week or so. If you’re rather reluctant to do your business in someone else’s bathroom, perhaps you’d like to rent a portaloo for the duration of your bathroom renovation.
Moving plumbing is necessary when you’re getting a complete bathroom renovation done. In some cases, however, some of the existing plumbing can actually be incorporated into the new design. That way, no moving plumbing will be necessary, and you will be able to save some money. The point is, whether you’re moving plumbing or just incorporating existing plumbing with a fresh design, you are going to need the expertise of a professional plumber.
