Avoid common bathroom renovation pitfalls

A bathroom renovation always starts off with great gusto but often loses steam as the project progresses and the task becomes more and more stressful for everyone involved. But it doesn’t have to be that way, you can avoid some of the common pitfalls of a renovation by;

Following the rules and regulations

Before you start your Saskatoon bathroom renovation, make sure that you are aware of all the building codes and regulations, and find out if you need any special permits. 

Having a timeline

When you draw up your renovation plan, make sure you include a realistic timeline so that you know what you are working towards and can plan accordingly. Consider each part of the project, for example gutting the old bathroom, tiling, painting, cabinet fitting, and find out how long each job should take to complete.

Drawing up a realistic budget

Do a proper costing of your materials, labor and accessories before you start the renovation of your Saskatoon bathroom. Make sure that you add a column for unexpected costs because once you start gutting a bathroom, you never know what you might find.

Resisting the temptation to start buying before you’ve finished planning

Don’t buy fittings, tiles, accessories or sanitaryware before you have settled on a renovation plan and confirmed the layout of your new bathroom. It is difficult not to get swept up in the excitement of the renovation, but you need to shop around, and you will only know what to buy when you actually have a design and plan in place.

Investing in quality

Renovating your bathroom is expensive but it is also an investment that can increase the value of your home so buy the best quality fittings and finishes that you can afford. Good quality tiles and cabinets will cost more but they will also last longer, and your bathroom will look great for years.

Before you start a major bathroom renovation in Saskatoon , it is best to get advice from a professional.
