If you are planning to remodel your bathroom for a new look, there are things that you should remember in preparation for your renovation.
You need to nail down the different elements that comprise a complete remodeled bathroom such as the choice of paint that you will use, the fixtures that you want to change, storage spaces, and the areas where you will be placing the other utilities at home.
The next step is to gather all your remodeling tools and supplies. Ensure that the materials are based on the renovation plan you created. Some of the essential equipment are power drill, pry bar, bucket, chisel, adjustable wrench, flathead screwdriver, hacksaw, utility knife, chalk line, and extension cord.
Now that you have everything you need for your bathroom remodeling project, you can now proceed to the main part of the renovation. You first need to remove or demolish all bathroom fixtures. Below are the tips for gutting a bathroom:
- Draining and removing the toilet to get rid of any unpleasant spills.
- In removing the bathtub, cover the tub itself and rework the plumbing.
- Removal of insulation from your walls.
- Removal of cabinets, mirrors, and tiles.
- Rent a dumpster for demolition debris.
Another step that you need to do is install your new shower or tub basin. Ensure that the pan or basin will fit your preferences as well as space where your shower or tub will be located. In shower remodeling design choices, there are three choices of shapes you can choose from like rectangular, square, and pentangle.
