- You have more upgrade options than you think: A bathroom remodel can go beyond changing out the counters and fixtures and re-doing the colors. Building contractors can design the space with needs of the elderly or handicapped in mind, with grab-bars, roll-in showers, and wider doorways. You can have further cosmetic work done, such as completly replacing the cabinets. There are numerous other upgrades, such as hand-held shower heads and towel warmers. Ask your building contractor about upgrades you may not have considered.
- Design and construction aren’t always the same thing: When it comes to any remodeling job, you often have to work with separate contractors. An architect handles working out the design, and then a building contractor takes over to perform the actual construction. Although this is a standard mode of business, it can create hassles because of communication problems, and it also means you will need to work with two separate companies. However, some contractors now have both services in-house, which will make your life easier, and also lead to an improved bathroom redesign.
- You have an opportunity to save water: If you are planning on having most of the fixtures replaced in your bathroom during the remodel, you should consider having low-flow faucets put in. These fixtures will feel just as effective as your older ones, but use 30% less water—leading to significant savings over the years, as well as helping with water conservation.
