If your bathroom shows signs of aging plumbing, can’t handle your family’s needs, or just doesn’t look like you want it to, you may be thinking about a remodeling project. A bathroom remodel will increase the value of your home and perhaps lower your water bills as well. In Frederick, MD, a professional plumber can help you determine what you can do within your budget, then conduct the remodeling with courtesy and efficiency. If you want to remodel your bathroom, it pays to keep a few things in mind before you call a professional.
- How many people will be using the bathroom, and for what purpose? Is the bathroom currently adequate for your family’s needs? Or are people tripping all over each other in an effort to fit into the space, or even waiting their turn while one family member uses the limited resources? A qualified plumber can talk about things such as additional sinks and shower-to-bathtub conversions, but you should clearly define the bathroom’s requirements before you begin.
- What is your budget like? The amount of money you wish to spend will have a huge impact on the specifics of your remodeling project. A surface refinishing might not cost much at all, while a full-scale rearrangement of the piping and fixtures could cost significantly more. You need to know how much each component of the remodeling will cost so that you can decide how best to use the resources in your budget.
- What kinds of utilities are needed? Besides the fixtures themselves, you need to plan for adequate heating, lighting and ventilation. Without them, your new bathroom may be less appealing that you thought.
- How much space do you have to work with? Expanding your existing bathroom may be possible in some cases, but you always need to know how much space you have to work with. A professional plumber can sit down with you and diagram the available space, showing you exactly what you can reasonably fit into it.
