Small Bathroom Remodeling
Even small bathroom remodeling jobs require skill and time to accomplish. To handle a small bathroom remodel yourself might take several months if you can only work on it over the weekends. Sometimes hiring a professional is the best way to get your bathroom back in working order quickly.
Big or small, bathroom remodeling is not a task to take lightly. But if you decide to do it yourself, here are a few tips on how to remodel a bathroom that might make the job a little easier:
To replace a window, consider installing a pre-assembled glass block window. A window like this can illuminate your shower space and stand up to water.
Save some space by taking out your crummy old tub and install a one piece shower pan. It won’t leak and the additional space really benefits a small bathroom, especially if no one uses the tub anymore.
Make cleaning easier during your bathroom remodel by installing a home version of the wall-hung toilet and sink. Cleanup will be much easier if you don’t have to mop around the based of these fixtures.
Even if you are a do-it-yourselfer, consider hiring professionals to take care of certain aspects of the job. You don’t have to do EVERYTHING yourself to be able to have bragging rights. Do the jobs you like or that are easy for you and hire out the rest.
You will need a permit to do any remodeling work on your house and a small bathroom remodel is no exception. Get to know the folks down at building and safety.
Remember to turn off the water before you start demolition and plan the work so that you can have everything closed off by the time you are done for the day so you can turn the water back on at the end of the day. Nothing is worse than not being able to finish a project (and not being able to turn the water back on) until the next day!
