Homeowner's Workbook: 10 Steps to a Bathroom Remodel
1. Determine your intentions. Why are you remodeling? Do you need more storage space, or does your layout feel awkward? Do you want to boost resale value? Are you simply ready for a change? Write down what you hope the remodel will accomplish. This way, you'll have a road map to help you prioritize your budget and stay true to your goals as you get deeper into the weeds of the process.
2. Figure out how much professional help you'll need. Which pros you hire will depend on the scope of the job. Are you changing the footprint or simply tearing out tile, countertops or other surfaces? Will you need the help of a certified bath designer and/or contractor, or do you have the skills and expertise to handle it yourself?
3. Pin down the style you want.
4. Establish your budget.
5. Choose a team of professionals.
6. Get building permits.
