Removing a tired bathroom and installing something fresh benefits your pocket and your quality of life.
When you live in Cleveland, spending on a bathroom update before you sell your home is the new norm. You recoup a solid percentage of all the money spent when you sell your home[i]. Updating your bathroom, therefore, is a savvy investment in your home.
But a bathroom remodel is about more than just curb appeal. After all, you have to live in it meantime. A new bathroom can update your entire house, lift your spirits, and make you the envy of your neighbors. Interested? You should be. Here’s how the process of bathroom remodeling works.
The Steps to a Bathroom Remodel
Wondering exactly what’s involved in a new bathroom should you choose to invest? Here are the steps towards a bathroom remodel mapped out in plain English.
Step 1 – Find a Good Company
When you opt for a bathroom remodel, finding a company who can take you through it from start to finish should be your first move. Checkout Cleveland bathroom remodeling companies near you until you find one with good reviews, loyal customers, and enough experience to reassure you that they can get the job done.
Step 2 – The Appraisal
Once you have chosen the company you want to work with, the next step is to have them come and look at your space. They need to see what is there so that they can ply you with options on how you want your bathroom remodel to look. An architect will be involved to give you either renders or talk you through their plans for your place.
If you choose to DIY a bathroom remodel, you can skip these steps and go straight to step 3.
Step 3 – The Removal of the Old Bathroom
Next comes the fun part. Disconnecting the water mains and getting to work taking everything out that you don’t want anymore. Wear protective gloves and a mask, have a dumpster to hand, and start smashing[ii]. We cannot stress enough how important it is that you know what you are doing here. This is why we hire professionals.
Step 4 – Adding the New Fixtures and Fittings
The big pieces of your new bathroom suite tend to go in first, with the finishing touches added later. Get your bath, shower, sink, and toilet units up and running, then worry about those final fixtures like your faucets, mirrors, and outlets.
Step 5 – The Finishing touches
The last thing you will do is decorate in the colors that you want. You can have the company do this for you, or you can go in and do it yourself. Once the last of the decorating is done and the bathroom is finished, you should check that you are happy with everything before the company vacates the premises. However, a good service will call you for a follow up, just to make sure you are still enjoying your new build.
Step 6 – Enjoy your New Bathroom!
All that is left to do now is to enjoy your remodeled bathroom in the sanctuary of your own home. If it’s done right, it really will be your own little haven.
