Making the decision to redo the bathroom can be a difficult task. It can take a lot of money to begin a bathroom renovation. There are many things that need to be taken into consideration such as what fixtures to replace along with colors and tile choices. Once these considerations have been answered, the actual renovations can begin.
- The first step is to remove any fixtures that are going to be replaced. Make sure that all electricity and water sources are turned off before beginning. If there is going to be a new sink, tub and toilet, removed those and either sell them or take them to a recycle yard where they can be used again. Take down all walls and floor tiles so that all that is left is bare walls and flooring.
- Clean and prepare where the fixtures and tiles have been removed. Any leftover caulk or grout should be removed or sanded down to expose the walls and floors. Everything should be clean and ready for painting. Before putting in the new fixtures paint the walls and prime any areas that need it. Allow the paint to dry before moving on.
- After the paint has dried and is cured properly, install the new fixtures according to the manufacturer's instructions. Allow time for the fixtures to settle into their new places. The final step is putting in the new tiling for the walls and floors. Once the grout has set, decorate the room according the plan.
- That is all there is to start and finish a bathroom renovation. While the steps seem small, they are necessary to complete the job. Anyone who has the time and the know how to read instructions can complete their own bathroom renovations quite easily. It just takes some time and a little muscle to have an entirely new bathroom.
