What to Expect During a Bathroom Renovation

A remodeled bathroom with a light pink vanity, tile flooring, and a tub/shower combo.If your bathroom is outdated, no longer accessible, or boring, you may be considering a remodel. Bathroom renovations can completely alter the functionality and style of your bathroom. However, many homeowners are unsure of what to expect during their bathroom renovation project. Let’s discuss the renovation process so you hopefully won’t have any surprises along the way.

A Projected Timeline

Once you have found a trusted bathroom remodeling contractor for your bathroom renovation, you will need to discuss how long the project will take to complete. Once your contractor understands if you are looking for a bathtub replacement, shower replacement, tub-to-shower conversion, or any other type of remodeling services, they will be able to give you an estimated timeline for your project.

You should ask them if the timeline includes permit acquisition and the design process, or just the demolition and installation. It can also be helpful to understand this is a projected timeline—meaning you should be prepared for delays or even an early finish.

Required Permits

Most bathroom renovations require certain permits to complete. Oftentimes, your contractor will acquire any necessary permits for you. However, you should speak with your contractor directly for more information about any permits you may need.

Design Process

This is the most exciting part of any bathroom renovation. You can bring your vision to life with a new clawfoot tub, walk-in shower, or any other type of product. There are many designs to choose from such as traditional, contemporary, luxury, and more. You can include a variety of colors and textures in your design with unique tiling or shelving. There is also a wide variety of wall surrounds, glass doors, and other accessories to choose from.

Prepping Your Home

Before your bathroom renovation can begin, you should be sure to clear out any items in your bathroom that could be in the way of the demolition or installation. This includes shampoo bottles, toiletry items, towels, etc. You should also remove anything that is not necessarily in the way but that you do not wish to get dust or debris on.

You should expect to not be able to use your bathroom while it is being renovated. Therefore, you should remove your toothbrush and other daily-use items from your bathroom so that you can use them in another bathroom in the meantime.

Demolition & Installation

As with any type of remodel, things are going to get messy. If you are having a bathtub or shower replaced, there will most likely be some demolition involved. Expect to hear loud noises in your home and avoid your bathroom while it is being remodeled—this is for your safety. Your contractor has the safety training and advanced equipment needed to complete the demolition process without injury.

The good news is bathroom renovations aren’t only about demolition—they include seamless installations. Once the debris is cleaned up, your bathroom remodeling contractor will expertly install your new bathtub or shower with ease. Once the installation is complete, your contractor should clean up their worksite so you can safely use your newly renovated bathroom as you please.
