Evaluate your existing bathroom for what you like and what you want to change. List features you’ve always wanted. Group them according to must-haves and nice-to-haves, and number them by importance. Review magazines and websites to gather inspiration. Consider whether you want to gut your bathroom and start from scratch or just make cosmetic changes, it’s important to know how much you want to spend before you start. Also set money aside for the unexpected, such as water, mold problems, electrical or outdated plumbing systems, in some cases it can be cheaper to gut the room and start from scratch. Design with resale in mind if you’re planning to stay in your home five years or fewer and communicate well with your project manager to ensure you get exactly what you want out of your bathroom remodel.
