Sounds like your bathroom? Then it is about time you think of repairs. Done that already? Let’s go a step ahead and renovate it completely! Yes, it requires emptying your pockets a bit, but hey, at the end of the day, it is worth it. Since when did you start getting good things for free? So, all set? Here’s information on renovating and remodeling your bathroom.
How to Renovate Your Bathroom
- Shower Stall
- Tub Enclosure
- Wash Basin
- Wax Seal for Toilet
- First, take into account how things need to be changed. If it is remodeling, you first need to have an idea as to how do you want to see the bathroom after it is done. Once you have a blueprint, it is easier to proceed and also avoid unnecessary confusions. Consider each and every little thing and know how to want it before beginning on the remodeling.
- Consult different hardware and furniture stores for price quotes. The more you explore, the better deals you will get. It will be easier for to zero in on one good store that offers a good deal as well as all materials. Usually, suppliers offer to get everything done and demand an amount accordingly rather than have you run from place to place for different materials and requirements.
- Clear out the bathroom by removing the existing items one by one. Turn off the water supply temporarily and make work space. Remove the toilet and sink. As soon as you are through with these, begin by changing the flooring. If there is any damage in the floor beams or joists, consider getting it replaced. After that put down the new flooring.
- Next, you can replace the tub or the shower enclosure. Fix new taps, clean the tiles and may put up the new sink. Fix the pipes and the taps and make sure you haven’t left out any joint. Else, you may have a brand new leaky bathroom!
- Now, scrape off the old wax seal from around the toilet drain. You need to remove all of it so that it doesn’t mess up with the new flooring. Take appropriate measurements and then fix it. Place the toilet back and connect it properly with the drain. Turn on the water supply and check if you have any leaks. If you do, try sealing it up with some wax seal.
