The stress of remodeling is enough to do any homeowner in, but when you’re A) remodeling a bathroom and B) your home only has ONE bath, well, that’s a whole different kind of stress! You can’t live without a bathroom for very long, so time is of the essence when you’re remodeling the only bathroom in your home.
Kansas City Bathroom Remodeling is here to assure you that it IS possible to remodel a bathroom, even if it’s your only one, without losing your mind. With our help, you can complete the project with spectacular results and very little inconvenience.
Here’s how it’s done:
Plan your renovation to be done in stages
We’d especially recommend only working on one water source at a time, so at worst, you’re without a toilet or shower for a day, but not both at one time. You can always use the kitchen sink for washing hands, brushing teeth, etc. Just be creative and flexible! Taking a shower at a friend’s or family member’s house won’t inconvenience either of you too much if it’s just for a day.
Have all the materials on hand
Waiting for shipments can eat up a lot of the renovation time of most projects, but if you only have one bathroom, you won’t have that luxury. Some items can take 8 weeks or longer to ship, so plan accordingly and don’t schedule your renovation until you’re sure everything will be on site. This also gives you the benefit of shopping around before the renovation begins, having time to choose the exact fixtures and appliances you want with zero time constraints.
Choose an experienced remodeler
If you are doing the work yourself, we commend you! But if you are going to trust a pro with your one-bathroom renovation, make sure you ask the right questions. How experienced are they with these types of renovations? Experience with single-bathroom renovations is definitely something you will get when you choose Kansas City Bathroom Remodeling! It might sound like a shameless plug, but we have the goods to back up our word!
Have as much of the prep done as possible
The more of the demolition you can have done ahead of time, the less will be wasted on removing wall paper, tearing out old tile, or removing light fixtures. And much of this, you can do yourself, saving money as well as time. You can have all of the materials ordered and all necessary building permits in hand when your bathroom remodeler arrives.
The best piece of advice Kansas City Bathroom Remodeling can offer you is to redesign your bathroom to make the most of the space.
If it’s your only bathroom, consider a Jack and Jill sink and separate shower and bathtub for convenience. You should also incorporate more storage in the bathroom because – well, do we really have to explain that one? And finally, talk to your Kansas City bathroom remodeling contractor about adding electrical outlets (again, a no-brainer!)
We’re more than ready to get going on your one-bathroom home’s renovation. With adequate planning, your project can go off without a hitch!
