Bathroom Renovation

By: John Pawlett

No matter what you might think, or what someone might have told you, renovations of any type arent easy, and when you start even thinking of bathroom renovations you can be assured that you're letting yourself in for one big headache. However, don't let that put you off. If you've got the renovation bug in you, then go for it. Besides, when you're in the renovating mood, trying to redecorate your bathroom just won't work.

You can try to spruce it up with new drapes and maybe a new rug. Perhaps even a new set of toothbrush holder and soap dish, but it just won't make all that much of difference in your eyes. You've got bathroom renovations signs in your mind and it's all you can do not to tear out the fifteen year old washbasin out with your bare hands.

You need to face the facts right here and now. Nothing but full scale bathroom renovations planning will do for you, and you need to get down to work. So you plot and you plan like a maniacal mad professor, and even your kids start to think that you're going round the bend. And this, only the first hour after you've made the decision to renovate.

Before you begin on your bathroom renovations though there are a few things you will need to do. First up, you need to decide if you have enough cash up front for you to be able to go through with this.

You really don't want to be half way through your bathroom renovations and realize that you're going to be short a crucial few hundred. Sure you might be able to scrounge up enough cash to get it done at that point but remember that growing children do need to eat in order to grow properly!

Use whatever method of funding that works for you, as long as you can allocate a proper budget to your bathroom renovations. The next thing you'll have to look into is how you're going to cope while the bathroom renovations are being carried out.

Do you have only one bathroom or do you have two? If it's the latter case then decide whether you're going to be able to stand your whole family being forced to use it until all renovations are finished. And if you only have the one bathroom then you'll have to come up with an alternate plan until your bathroom renovations are completed.

You could move into a residence hotel, or even a motel for the few days that you won't be able to use the bathroom. Then again if you're friendly with your neighbors you can always ask them if you could make free use of their bathroom until all renovations are over and done with.

As you can see beginning any bathroom renovations project requires planning and forethought on your part, so don't tear out the washbasin with your bare hands before you get all these details ironed out!
