When it comes to bathroom remodeling, it can be tough. This isn’t going to be an easy project especially if you haven’t had an experience doing a bathroom remodeling before. I would like to share with you five important tips that will help you with your bathroom remodeling project.
Make sure that you come up with a good design. Create a nice plan something that works in your bathroom and works well; in other words, if you have a bathroom, a bathtub in your bathroom. I’m just going to go over the standard bathroom here; a bathtub, a sink, and a toilet. Don’t switch these items around. Don’t move the bathtub where the toilet is, which could be some causal things to do.
In moving your plumbing, try to stick with the same format if possible when you’re planning, but make sure that you have a good plan. Don’t flit a seven-foot tub in a five-foot area. Simple things like that are common sense.
When it comes to demolition. You’re going to be tearing out the shower, you’re going to be taking the bathtub out. Would it be a bad idea to provide yourself with enough ventilation? Even wearing a respirator mask to keep the dust-out? Ventilation, a nice fan, an open window. Often, if there’s a window, I’ll stick the fan in a window and run that while I’m working all the time and to get rid all of the debris.
When it comes to selecting your plumbing textures. Would it be a bad idea to make sure that they match? A lot of times you’ll see an all white; bathtub’s white, toilet’s white and the sink is white. It’s not a bad idea to stick with the same colors or colors that are close to that.
When it comes to painting. It’s not a good idea in the bathroom to use flat or satin paint. Try to use semi-gloss or high gloss paint. I prefer to use semi-gloss paint. Now, some people asked me, what about the oil based or water based? Oil based is good paint. If you’re not familiar with using oil-based paint, I recommend that you use water-based paint. Sometimes, oil-based paints are difficult to use and apply.
Recently, I was in a house where someone painted used oil-based paint to paint the ceiling in the kitchen with a roller that must not have been a very good roller, there were all sorts of little hairs, these hairs are about half an inch apart all the way through the ceiling. So, if you don’t know what you’re doing, stick with acrylic water based paint but semi-gloss is what I recommend.
Pre-modeling your bathroom. If you’re not going to do it yourself, you need to find a good contractor. Make sure that your contractor is licensed. If you can’t, check out their work. Have they remodeled some bathrooms in your area? If you are going to do the work yourself.
What about purchasing a couple of books? Go to the internet; check out how to do things. Watch videos like this. Give a little education behind you. Even if you watched one video or read one book and it saves you a couple of things that prevent you from making a mistake or helps with the design of the bathroom, this going to be worth it.
