Maybe second only to updating your kitchen, renovating your bathroom can be an extremely exciting and satisfying experience. Whether you hire a professional remodeling company, or decide to tackle the project yourself and pick away at it over time, it is a whole lot of fun to watch your “what if” idea turn into a reality that you can enjoy every day. It is important, however, to keep a few things in mind before you get your bathroom remodeling project off the ground.

Ideas for Planning Your Bathroom

Before you think too much about soaking in that new tub, or washing the cares of the day away in your steamy new shower stall, it's important to slow down for a moment. Remodeling a bathroom is an involved process. There are a lot of decisions to be made, and oftentimes the earlier you can make those decisions and the better you can plan ahead, the smoother the process will go. Here are a few things to consider that will help get you pointed in the right direction.

  1. Carefully consider your bathroom’s style and function- In other words, what do you want your bathroom to do, and what do you want it to look like? It is very frustrating to get to the end of a project and then be struck with an “I wish I had just…” moment. Will this be an efficient, utilitarian bathroom for a high-traffic family, or is this going to be your room to escape and lock the world out for a while? Your goals will shape the direction of the project.
  2. What does your bathroom need?- Take a few minutes and write down what your bathroom needs to have included based on your answer to the first question. This will help you to best organize your space.
  3. Search for the best products for your bathroom- Begin the process of scouting out flooring, vanities, fixtures, and those other necessary items. This will also help you to refine and plan the style you want to see take shape.
  4. Implement creative bathroom storage ideas- Doing some preliminary research for tips and tricks to help increase the efficiency of your bathroom’s space will not only help you plan, but also may free up square footage that you can use for something more fun than storage (like maybe that bigger tub you're thinking about). Your bathroom may be bigger than you think it is! 
  5. Get the help you need- Remodeling can look quite easy on paper; just move this square here, erase that one, add a circle here, and voila! In reality, there is a lot involved and many technical considerations to be made before you jump right in.
