Let us face it, we tend to ignore the problems we face with our bathroom situation for as long as we can. We tend to procrastinate on the project. And we only take it up when the situation starts to get out of our hands. It the stress about the budget, the mess and not knowing what exactly we want the look to be like that pushes the remodeling date furthermore.
Relax and don’t stress yourself out
We all know how difficult it can be to organize the huge mess a bathroom remodeling project creates and how much stress it creates way ahead in time. Even before the project starts, we start having second thoughts and this sometimes causes further delay, which just worsens the situation if say, for example, you are dealing with bathroom molds or chipped cabinet doors.
Remodeling should be exciting, shouldn’t it? Well, here are a few tips to keep in mind to make your remodeling project much more enjoyable and much less stressful:
- Know what you want
Start with a good design and plan is out regardless of its scale. Even a small project takes up so much time and money. You would be at ease seeing how smooth the functioning gets if you plan everything ahead. This will also keep your budget in check throughout the process. You will most likely end up being more satisfied with the result and it would also save a lot of your time.
- Pick Your Battles
It can be very easy to sweat the small details. However, this constant nitpicking can be a source of high stress for you and your family. Know the one thing you won’t budget on, such as the material and look of the countertop, or the layout of the design. Choose your top three things that can’t be compromised, and be flexible about the rest of it.
- Minimize the time for completion
A major remodeling project takes a lot of time. Chances are that you will be unable to use the bathroom space for quite some time. Avoid it and reduce the downtime as much as possible. Never start demolition until your bathroom fitting arrives at the warehouse.
- Plan a getaway
The construction part will take about 15 days minimum on average if it is to be done from scratch. Even smaller projects take a minimum of 4 to 5 days. In order to avoid all the inconvenience, this would be an ideal time to go away for a long weekend.
