If you own a new custom home in Connecticut and want to touch up one of the bathrooms there are a few things you should keep in mind. Bathroom renovations and remodeling jobs are not things you simply do on a whim. It takes careful planning to ensure you get the look you want and don’t cause any problems to the plumbing or electrical wiring. At By Carrier we want you to have the bathroom you’ve always wanted so we offer a few tips to help get you started:

Budget Accordingly

Renovations are not exactly cheap. Whether you’re looking to paint the walls, add a new sink or completely remodel the room, sit down and carefully plan your expenses. Many homeowners make the mistake of getting involved in a project and then changing their mind halfway through only to realize the new designs will be too expensive. Be careful with your planning and create a budget you will follow to ensure you can complete any project you start.

Plumbing and Electric

Homeowners have many ideas for how they want rooms to look but not many see beyond the walls. But that’s where you’ll find the pipes for plumbing and all the wiring for outlets. Before you start any bathroom remodeling project, be sure you know where the pipes and wires are so you don’t cause a major disaster by accident. Rupturing a pipe or cutting wires can be very dangerous and lead to messy problems in the house. Contact a plumber or electrician before you start any home improvement work.

Plan Ahead

Don’t just start tearing up the tile and making decisions as you go. The best way to remodel any room, the bathroom in particular, is to lay out the design first and follow your plans. Many homeowners have made the error of jumping into a project without thinking ahead and now have a bathroom that is half-finished with no real direction. Avoid delays by planning ahead and knowing exactly what you want to accomplish with your bathroom remodeling.
