It’s a simple reality of any major home remodeling project: There’s going to be some stress. There are plenty of planning tactics you can use to keep your hassle levels as low as possible, but you should enter the process knowing there will be a few minor bumps in the road from time to time.
At Falk Construction Inc., we can help keep your stress levels as low as possible during our various home remodeling projects. The bathroom remodel can be particularly stressful due to the key part of the home it eliminates you from being able to use – let’s go over some basic tips we can offer on having a hassle-free bathroom remodel.
Work With Pros
If you’re reading this blog, you’re already partway to this vital tip: Always use licensed, experienced professionals like our general contractors for major home remodeling projects. We provide both a high level of craftsmanship and the expertise you need for your project – many people don’t realize how much goes into organizing a big bathroom remodel, and we can help you with this while you focus on your daily life. Leave those concerns to us and also ensure your project has the highest-quality results possible.
One of the standard stress elements of a bathroom remodel is the fact that you will either be fully or partially unable to use the remodeled bathroom during the process. If you have a second bathroom in the home, you’ll want to ensure it’s fully stocked and prepared for a larger load, including significantly increased toilet and shower usage.
If there are several people living in your home and only one remaining working bathroom, you may have to do some advanced planning in terms of shower schedules and related areas, especially in the mornings. And finally, if you don’t have a second usable bathroom in the home, we can help you set up a makeshift option.
In some other cases, it might simply make more sense to vacate your home altogether for a few days during the major stages of the remodel. If you have a neighbor or close friend who lives nearby, see if you can arrange a brief stay in advance for you and your family. Our contractors can give you detailed timelines to make sure you know exactly how long you need to arrange to be gone for.
In addition, we recommend considering daily locations to spend time if you normally are at home throughout the day – even if you aren’t relocating entirely. Remodeling projects can make a lot of noise and can also create dust, so it won’t be very relaxing and you won’t be able to get any work done if you work from home.
Take a positive, patient attitude throughout your remodel. There may be some inconveniences along the way, but just remember that these are temporary and are part of your mission to achieve a final goal.
