What to Know Before a Bathroom Remodel

Finally, custom bathrooms have found their rightful place. From an elegant, simple, traditional or vintage theme—to name a few, there is now something for everyone in the Missouri and Kansas areas. However, to get the right results, you will want to make sure to do some pre-planning to avoid mistakes down the road.

When it comes to remodeling your bathroom, keep the following in mind:

Know what you want, and what you need – to satisfy both demands, make sure your custom bathroom reflects your day-to-day needs, along with your preferred design. Too often, bathrooms are remodeled with resale in mind, or for what others have said works well or for what is popular. But if in the end, your bathroom does not suit your daily needs, frustrations can occur.

Make sure your bathroom compliments the rest of your house – consider your overall color scheme and style, then make sure your bathroom does not compete with other rooms for attention.  

The toilet should never be seen from the door – for a high-quality look, make sure the toilet is set away from your bathroom’s first impression.

Know your budget – if on a budget, know where costs can be cut. Possibly you can keep the tile and spend more money on the faucets.

Only purchase products that can stand the test of time and wear – maybe you don’t have to buy the most expensive product, but avoid purchasing sub-standard products, as well.

Hire a reputable contractor – either talk to a trusted friend or family member, or interview three contractors to learn which one is most likely to meet your expectations. Ask a lot of questions. Follow-up by doing your research regarding their reputation. At Gaumats International, we are licensed, bonded and have helped countless clients create and build their dream custom bathroom.

Consider all your electrical needs – this includes your blow dryer, flat iron, candle warmer, etc.

Know your lighting needs – possibly write down a walk-through of your morning and evening routine to know what you need to function and enjoy this part of your home.

Pick the right vanity – one style does not fit all. Make sure you get one that does not use too much space, and yet provides enough space.

Make sure to provide proper ways to dry out your bathroom to avoid mold and mildew – this includes having a fan that vents to the outside (not the attic) and, hopefully, a window.

Only work with a professional – when it comes to creating the right custom bathroom, there are hundreds of things to consider. Gaumats International has helped clients create countless custom bathrooms that meet their needs and fulfill their dreams.
