7 Ways to Make Your Chicago Area Bathroom Remodeling Project Go Smoothly


The simplest remodeling projects still need careful thought and planning. If you plan on remodeling your bathroom, there some things you need to know. Here are 7 ways to make your project go smoothly.

  1. Budget Carefully: If you are not a planner or list maker, this is a time when you should make one anyway. Listing a careful budget and list will help you stick to the amount you have to spend. It will also help the contractor know what areas you want them to focus on so they can do a good job.
  2. Plan a Timeframe: Remodeling happens with a several step process. Create a schedule that helps you remember different dates that include holidays and vacations, material delivery times, and workdays. Laying out all your dates on paper will help you feel less stressed and allow your project to run smoothly.
  3. Consider Resale Factors: Resale factors should always be included in remodeling projects. Calm and neutral colors are best for re-selling your home. These types of color pair well with other accents and are easy to change.
  4. Consider Plumbing Issues: Consider hiring an expert for plumbing and electrical installations. These are complex areas and involve more than replacing fixtures. The last thing you want is to delay your project.
  5. Ask for Help: Even if you have completed many do-it-yourself projects, it’s a good idea to ask for help. Don’t feel like you have to handle your project all by yourself. Seek advice from family and friends if you don’t plan on using an outside contractor.
  6. Communicate Clearly: Regardless of who you ask for help, make sure you communicate your expectations clearly. Mistakes can easily happen and if you don’t communicate clearly, they’ll happen again. Having a plan in place will help avoid this problem.
  7. Efficiency is Key: Appliance that are efficient will save you time and money in the long run. If your fixtures and appliances are older, consider replacing them with newer ones that run more efficiently. Windows are another area to focus on for energy efficiency.
