7 Things to Keep in Mind for Your Next Renovation

1. Make a list of what you want to change.
Look at websites and magazines to get inspiration for
the redesign. Write down what you like and why you like it,
and look online and at your local home store to get a price
estimate. Once you know what you want to change, prioritize
your list by ranking each item in order of what needs to get
done first. Refer to your list throughout the project to help
you stay on track.
2. Consider your resources: time, budget and
energy. When deciding between an update and an
overhaul, take into consideration the amount of time, money
and energy that you’ll have to dedicate to the project.
3. Set a budget. Once you figure out how much you
can spend, subtract 20% to 30% from this number
and set it aside for contingencies.
4. Sketch it out. A rough sketch of the layout of the
space will help you narrow down the fixtures, cabinets
and storage options you’d like to incorporate.
5. Measure everything more than once. It
may sound persnickety, but taking the time to measure
things twice will help you to ensure that you don’t need to
make costly returns or corrections.
6. Replace the underlayment. If you’re ripping
up flooring and fixtures, consider replacing the
underlayment. Not only does this allow you to start fresh, it
also gets rid of any water damage, which commonly occurs
in the humid bathroom environment.
7. Reduce the impact of the renovation.
Move your stuff over to the bathroom that’s not being
remodeled before the work begins. That way you won’t have
to hunt for your favorite body wash or your disposable razors.
