How To Plan A Bathroom Remodel

By Robert Robillard on Bathrooms


Proper planning prevents unnecessary roadblocks and helps you realize your vision by defining your space.

When you need to stop and rethink every step, planning and drafting in the field, you’re bound to miss some things, and those curve balls will slow you down and probably cost you in time and labor.

The ounce of prevention here is making decisions prior to cutting lumber. Realistic schedules need to be produced.  A proper sequence of events should be spelled out clearly so that the necessary materials are on hand at the right time: Don’t gut the bathroom until the plumbing fixtures and vanity cabinet are on site and ready to install.
