The bathroom is one of the rooms that used every day in a home, but it is often that last one to get a remodel or upgrade. There is a lot that can be done with that space that can improve the space and make it one of the nicest rooms in the house. If it is time to give your bathroom an upgrade, take some time to consider the space and what you want to do with it before you jump into it.

Removing The Old

Taking the old fixtures and cabinets out of the bathroom is the first big task. If they are in decent shape, you might want to try and save them and sell them on a classified ad or garage sale website. Getting a little something for them is a great way to offset the budget a little. Even if they are older, someone may have a need for what you took out so be careful when you remove them from the bathroom.

Painting or Papering

Once the room is completely empty, take the opportunity to paint or paper the walls. This is a good time to do it. Dripping paint on a new floor or new fixtures is never a good thing. If you are painting, lighter colors can brighten the entire room up and make it feel a little larger. Make sure you sand things down well and fill in holes in the walls before you paint them.  

Replacing The Flooring

If you are considering replacing the flooring in your bathroom, now is the time to do it. While the room is empty, you will have access to all the areas that are hard to reach, and you can get the flooring down under things like the bathtub or shower, toilet, and any cabinets that are going in. If you want a durable floor, replacing the existing flooring with a nice tile can really improve the look and feel of the room.

Installing New Fixtures and Faucets

Now that all the dirty work has been completed, you can start installing your fixtures. The shower or tub, the toilet, and the sink can all go in. If you need a plumber to help with relocating pipes or even just connecting the fixtures, this is the time to have them there. If you are installing a new sink and shower, take the time to sink new faucets for the bathroom sink and shower as well. A new sink faucet will not only help to update the look of the bathroom; it will work correctly because the seals and seats have not worn down yet. Once the bathroom is all back together all you need to do is step back and enjoy the look and feel of the new space.
