Tips To Make Your Bathroom Makeover As Painless As Possible

By: teahupoo
Does your shower curtain bore you? Do you feel embarrassed every time a guest asks to use the rest room because your decor doesn't match or just reflects the how many decades have passed since you last even considered remodeling your bathroom? Bathroom remodeling doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg, and thanks to technology and the World Wide Web, you can virtually do most of the work from the planning to the designing to the implementation yourself.

Media has played a huge part in how individuals are remodeling their homes. Thanks to networks like TLC and HGTV, America as well as the rest of the world have vast resources for great ideas without ever dialing up their local designer. They can see designs from New York City to San Francisco born from the minds of creative geniuses all over the country. And while many husbands regret the fact that their wives can now draw on this inspiration and call on their help to install a new sink, families as a whole appreciate the vast resources and ideas available on shows like "Room by Room" and "This Old House".

A few shows and ideas have recently caught my attention while I was considering remodeling my own bathroom. I'll have to admit that while I don't want my wife to know it, I actually felt compelled to change our own bathroom according to the nautical look that I saw on television with the sailor's knots and navy and white pin-striped shower curtains. The room just looked cool. And as I saw the room take shape, I thought to myself, "I could do that".

When considering remodeling the bathroom, start out with a strict budget. The bathroom usually ends up costing more than any other remodeling project, so keep this in mind and know exactly what you'd like to change, from the paint color to the wall texture to the placement of fixtures. Consider everything when considering the budget.

Once you have your budget down, you can begin designing. We no longer have to rely on the cost of a professional designer thanks to the plethora of designing ideas in the world today. Just run some searches on the Internet and you'll find what you are looking for.

Consider outside costs also when considering the whole design and cost of the remodeling project. For example, if you do not absolutely have to switch out fixtures like tubs and sinks, then you can cross the plumber off your list of expenses.

You can even search for your supplies online. Once you have determined your design, you can literally get just about everything you need from the comfort of your own office. Remember to measure your room carefully. You'd hate to order a tub that's a few inches too long for your space.

Thanks to the World Wide Web, you no longer have to stress out over your bathroom remodel. So get started and start clicking.
