Remodeling a room is a very exciting prospect, especially one that gets as regular, everyday use as your bathroom. There are, of course, a lot of different aspects of the remodeling project to consider before you begin the process. Preparation is key when you’re remodeling any room in your home, and Pompeii’s Plumbing and Heating is here to offer you some tips to make your bathroom remodeling project as stress-free and successful as possible.
First things first, why have you decided to remodel your bathroom? This may sound repetitive, but figuring out precisely what about your current bathroom design prompted you to decide a change is needed will help you and your contractor focus in on the work that needs to be done. Once you’ve determined what it is you don’t want or like about your current bathroom it is a lot easier to determine what changes will best benefit you. A good place to start is in determining whether you are driven by aesthetics or function. These two may overlap, but if one outweighs the other it may drastically change the remodeling process.
If you are displeased with the appearance and aesthetics of your bathroom, decide not only what you want replaced but what you want to replace it with. Making these decisions before the project is underway – and being sure about them – will allow your contractor to give you exactly what you want without any guesswork. New tiles and grout around the bathtub or shower, new fixtures and toilets or even lighting are all factors to be considered. Whatever is unappealing in your bathroom can be more easily replaced when you’ve done your homework and know what you’d like to replace it with.
Of course, function also plays a role in this. For instance, you’ve decided you’d like a new toilet. That’s fine, but are you also interested in conserving water? Now would be a great time to make the switch to a low-flow model. The same goes for your water faucets. Increasing efficiency may not be the motivating cause for the remodel, but there is no reason not to tackle both at once if you’re so inclined.
Whatever the reason for the remodeling project, it is also an opportune time to fix any plumbing or piping issues that afflict your bathroom. Find a reputable Avon plumber, such as those on the Pompeii’s Plumbing and Heating team, to inspect your pipes and make any necessary repairs or replacements during the remodel. Make the most of your project, prepare yourself for the decision making process, and get the remodeled bathroom you’ve been looking for: functional, aesthetically pleasing and efficient. Call Pompeii’s with any questions you may have.
