Creating A Functional Home

Do you love being in your home? A few years ago, I realized that my home was a little lackluster, which is why I started focusing on making things right by working with a team of construction contractors. I wanted to create an absolutely beautiful home interior, so I met with a team of professionals to talk about my construction options. They were really incredible to work with, and within a few short months, my home looked brand new. I wanted to create a blog all about creating a functional, gorgeous home so that you can adore your indoors space.

4 Tips to Run a Smooth Bathroom Remodel

If you have an old, outdated bathroom, a remodel makes sense; not only will it improve the look of your home, it will also add value to it. On average, you can expect to recoup 70% of the money spent remodeling your bathroom when you sell you home. If you're going to make the investment to renovate your bathroom, you most likely want to ensure that the project is done well and close to budget. Use the following tips for a successful bathroom remodel.

Shop for Materials in Person

Shopping online is great for a lot of things, but when it comes to selecting the materials for your bathroom remodel, it is best to shop in person. Things like counter tops and tile can look different in photographs compared to real life, so take you time to visit a home improvement store or remodeling center so you can examine a variety of bathroom remodeling materials and choose your personal favorites.

Have a Clear Contract with Your Remodeling Contractor

Before hiring a contractor to complete your bathroom remodeling contract, make sure you have a clear and concise contract that outlines every detail of the renovation.

Two important aspects to include in the contract is the total cost of the project, and a timeline that includes a project completion rate. This will ensure that you know how much you are paying for labor before the project starts, and give you an end date so the project stays on track. It is helpful to also include a rundown of exactly what the contractor will be doing so there are no disputes after the project is started.

Account for All Materials Before Starting the Project

A big remodeling project can be messy, and you won't be able to use the bathroom while it is being renovated. You can prevent delays in the middle of the project by making sure that every last material needed for the remodel has arrived before the remodel begins. If your contractor has access to everything needed to create the bathroom you have designed, you won't have to worry about the project taking longer than expected.

Don't Make Changes Midway Through the Project

It is in the best interest of your budget and project timeline to have the exact bathroom design that you want down on paper before a project begins. You may want to work with your contractor and a bathroom design specialist such as Ketron Custom Builders in the beginning stages to ensure that you are in love with the new design. Making changes when the project is underway will only result in extra expenses for you, and a delay in the completion date.
