Four Things To Know Before Remodeling Your Bathroom

In a perfect world, remodeling a bathroom is a fast and easy task to tackle with every aspect of the job falling seamlessly into place. However, in reality a bathroom remodeling job is typically a rather large undertaking that requires much planning, thought, and hard work. Here at NB Construction, we understand this process, and we work tirelessly to ensure that every part of your home receives the attention that a full design and build project requires. Here are some things you should know before you start tearing up flooring and removing tiles. Knowing this information before you start can help you get the bathroom of your dreams without busting your budget.

Assess Your Needs

Before you start planning your bathroom remodeling project, take the time to assess your needs. Identify the key reasons for updating your bathroom that may include things like needing more space, the fixtures being outdated, the tub being too small, and such. This makes it easier to choose the right bathroom features you need and want.

Make A Plan & Stick To It

Any reputable Los Angeles contractor will tell you that a bathroom remodeling project is not a project to undertake “on the fly”. Before you even rip out one tile, think carefully about how you wish to use the space, what materials and fixtures you want, and how much money you are willing to spend. If you are not a good planner, ask us at NB Construction, your local Los Angeles building renovation service, for some help. Look at the money spent on a professional’s advice as a sound investment that is helping you avoid both project and budget nightmares that often plague those who plan their remodeling projects poorly.

Lighting Is Crucial

While it is fine to cut a few corners here and there, lighting is not an area to skimp on when remodeling a bathroom. Considering your bathroom is where you groom yourself every day, it is important that you have the right lighting in place including ‘task’ lights near your sinks and mirrors. Today, there are all types of lighting options to choose from. Just make sure the lights you pick provide enough brightness while ensuring the fixtures match your overall bathroom design.

Proper Ventilation Is A Must

Your bathroom needs to have a good ventilation system in place that can handle the excessive humidity that fogs up the mirrors, makes the floors slippery, and contributes to the growth of mildew and mold. A properly sized and installed exhaust fan is your best defense against harmful moisture that builds up in the bathroom. The exhaust fan should be connected to vent ducts that channel the exhaust outside your home. In this way, the exhaust will not go into closed, dark spaces inside your home where mold can develop and spread to damage walls, floors, and ceiling materials.
