Many homeowners decide to undertake a remodeling project without knowing the details, often ending up overwhelmed and drained before the project even begins. If you’re one of these homeowners, read on as Oberg Roofing & Remodeling shares key questions you should ask yourself before starting a bathroom remodel.
Why Do I Want to Remodel?
Let’s say all you know at the moment is you’re not happy with your existing bathroom. Is it because the bathroom looks outdated? Were the design decisions not yours – perhaps the previous owner’s? Does the bathroom feel cramped? Perhaps it has too many broken fixtures, or maybe the lighting is bad? We recommend making a list of the things you like and dislike about the bathroom, as this will inform your decisions as you make your remodeling plans.
What Do I Want in My Dream Bathroom?
Try to picture your dream bathroom without considering cost or any such limitations. Go online and look for bathroom designs that catch your eye, save them, and have fun combining elements that you want. If you have the skills and know-how to make photo collages, have at it. Take the time that you need to gather your ideas until you’re ready to talk to a remodeler, who will help refine your ideas and turn them into remodeling plans.
What Special Features Do I Want?
Adding features not typically found in bathrooms is a great way to take your bathroom remodeling plans to the next level. A luxury shower system, hot tub, and double vanity are just a few of these. Features that improve accessibility, such as grab bars, curbless showers, and walk-in bathtubs, are also worth considering.
How Long Am I Planning To Stay?
Think about your future with your home. If this is your forever home, then investing in a dream bathroom remodel makes sense. If you’re in a starter home and are planning to move out within the next five years, you’ll probably want to keep the remodel a bit laid back, focusing more on features that will increase the home’s value.
