When starting a bathroom renovation, the first step should always involve a plan. Sitting down and formulating a plan of what you, as the homeowner, need to accomplish will save you from hours of frustration throughout the project. Generally, contractors will take care of providing an installation timeline, but the rest is up to you to have ready for them. This involves not only selecting the product, but also purchasing and having all items ready onsite prior to the contractors' arrival.
First, start with a realistic budget, and allow another 10-15% contingency fund for the unforeseen. You may not know what's behind your walls and it's always better to be safe than sorry. Next, map out a schedule that accounts for each step of the project. Be realistic with this plan and be prepared to adjust when necessary. Even the best contractors run into unanticipated obstacles.
Finally, write down all the items you require, such as floor and wall tiles, and take your plan a renovation showroom. Ask if a there's a showroom designer available to assist you. Provide the list of requirements and when you need to pick them up by. Knowing the timeline and cost will ensure you are only being shown the best possible materials for project, but also ensuring they are available to suit your start date. From there, have some fun and keep positive. Renovations are challenging for the best of us, but a well laid out plan from the beginning will minimize the hold ups.
