How to Plan a Bathroom Renovation: A Step-by-Step Guide

Renovating a bathroom can be a daunting task. But with careful planning, you can make the process much easier and end up with the bathroom of your dreams! Follow these steps to get started:

1. Take measurements of your existing bathroom.

Measure twice, cut once, as they say! This step is vital to make sure that your new bathroom will fit into the existing space. Take careful measurements to get an idea of what size fixtures and furniture will fit and where they can be placed.

2. Sketch out a design for your new bathroom.

Dream of the perfect layout and design for your new bathroom. Sketch out a floor plan, with furniture placement and fixtures marked in their desired locations. Be sure to include all of the details that you want in your finished product. This doesn’t have to be fancy or perfect; get an idea of what you want the final product to look like. For best results, take your ideas to a professional home renovation company to get help making them into a reality.

3. Demolish the existing bathroom.

This is probably the most fun part! Take everything out, down to the studs if possible. If you’re not planning on gutting the whole thing, then at least remove anything that you know you won’t be using in the new bathroom. The Junk Guys offer selective interior demolition services that make it easy for you to start a bathroom renovation project. Our team will help you safely and efficiently remove any unwanted materials, including tile, vanities, cabinets, fixtures, and more.

4. Build the new bathroom according to your plan.

This is where all of your hard work (and money!) will start to pay off. Be sure to follow all building code requirements as you put everything in place before you move on to installing plumbing and electrical fixtures, tiling, painting, etc. Doing it yourself can save a little money but hiring a professional can save you time and take the worry out of getting it right the first time.

5. Style the bathroom as you like.

Finish up by adding any final touches like décor, storage solutions, and so on. And that’s it! You now have a brand-new bathroom that is entirely tailored to your specific needs and preferences.

Bathroom renovations can be big projects, but with careful planning, they don’t have to be overwhelming. By taking measurements, sketching out a design, demolishing the old bathroom, and building the new one according to your plan, you can create the perfect space for unwinding at the end of a long day or getting ready for a big night out on the town. You can do some of the work yourself but for the best results, always hire a professional. When you hire the Junk Guys for bathroom demolition, we’ll clean up all of the debris and take it with us.
