Q. How long does a bathroom remodel take?
A. Like many things in life, it depends on a variety of things, like the details of your design, the availability of the fixtures you’re looking for, and the materials you are wanting to use. Most bathroom remodels include taking out the bathtub, sink, toilet, and rearranging the room. The more extensive the changes to the bathroom, the longer it will take.
Q. How should I rearrange my bathroom floor plan?
A. How you rearrange your bathroom is entirely up to you. However, we can offer some guidance on how the process works. Before a bathroom is remodeled, you will want to make sure to work out all of the minute details of the layout and design. When thinking about and planning the new design, be sure to arrange it in a way that allows you to show off your beautiful new shower, unique faucets, plush countertops, and other new bathroom elements you may be designing for. Also, it is important to keep in mind plumbing placement during your planning phase.
Q. Should I use a wooden floor in my bathroom remodel?
A. Yes, you can use wooden floors in a bathroom remodel as long as there isn’t an excessive amount of moisture in the bathroom on a daily basis. You will have to use your best judgement on this, and there will always be a chance that you could still have water issues with your wooden flooring, but it would be similar to having a wooden floor near the dishwasher, water heater, and laundry equipment. If there is too much water on the wooden floor, too often, it could damage the floor, so be mindful of this.
Q. Should I replace my entire bathtub or just refurnish it?
A. It depends on your unique situation on whether or not you will want to refurnish or replace your bathtub. Refurnishing may be a good option if your bathtub does not have rush and only minor scuffs or cracks. The scuffs and cracks can be repaired and refurnishing the tub can successfully ad years to your tub or shower without the expense of replacement. However, in more sever cases, such as rusty, cracked tubs, a removal and replacement will be needed.
