Obviously, working with a professional remodeling contractor is supposed to help you avoid mistakes, right? The trouble is, sometimes, you may not fully understand what constitutes a good or bad choice in your bathroom, until you are trying to live with it.
By all means, carefully select the appropriate professional to work with for your bathroom remodeling. However, know that even the best contractor is basically there to do what you tell them to do. At least familiarize yourself with some commons do’s and don’ts in order to reduce the likelihood of having problems with your project.
What to Know &What to Avoid
Search ‘bathroom remodeling in Kansas City’ and the results are bound to be plentiful. Yet, what you really need is a professional who acts like they have a vested interest in the success of our project, and in you as a customer. Because they should care. That means offering advice like:
Do not make the mistake of thinking that the goal is to find the cheapest labor possible. There is a popular misconception that you should seek quality materials but low-cost labor. Your high-end materials are only going to be as good as the weakest link on the construction crew. For long-term success, make it a point to pair quality materials with equally as high-quality workmanship.
Don’t forget to make your bathroom as user-friendly as it is ornate. Too often, we get caught up in focusing on the visual aesthetics, as opposed to the functionality of a space. Will the shiny new floors be safe for a room where they will frequently get wet and slippery? Does the petite shower and tub offer a way to bathe, should you or any member of your household need a more accommodating universal style setup?
Do make sure that you include plenty of storage. Too often, when getting caught up with the features you are excited about, you end up losing sight of the fact that this space also needs utilitarian aspects, like storage. Fail to do so and you will find yourself traveling between the bathroom and the hall closet far too often.
Do also make it a point to see the products going into your renovated space, firsthand. Picking things out online is convenient but when the real product arrives, it may not be what you had in mind. The color could be off, it could be inferior craftsmanship or you just may not like it in person.
