(Originally aired February 20th, 2014)

 

Tips to Planning a Bathroom Renovation:

– A bathroom may be a small space, but it doesn’t mean it’s easy to do.

– If you’re buying a bathtub, make sure you sit in the one you are going to purchase beforehand to see if it is comfortable.

– Collect images from Pinterest and Houzz and then determine a realistic budget.

– Determine which trades you will need and when (plumber, tiler, electrician, vanity maker, etc.)

– Remember to keep a  10-20% contingency fee for unforeseen problems.
