    A bathroom renovation is an exciting task. But before jumping to choosing the latest tile or bathtub design, there are some less exciting things to consider so your project turns out just the way you dream it. Because renovating a bathroom can be overwhelming, time-consuming and costly, we prepared a simple 15-point checklist to make sure that your project stays on track and the renovation runs smoothly.
    1. Budget
    If you don't know already, you should work up an idea of how much you want to spend on your bathroom renovation. Setting a budget will help guide you as you make decisions about what to include in the remodel. Once you've figured out what you can spend and subtracted the amount allocated to labor, you'll have a clearer sense of what you can spend on tile, fixtures and extras.

    2. Time
    Many people assume that if they are remodeling a small bathroom, it will take only a few days, or anyway it will take much less time than a larger one. This is not necessarily the case. Depending on how many items you are changing in the bathroom, your contractor will have to go through all the same steps as a larger bathroom. You'll also need to define not only the duration of the renovation work, but also certain intermediate steps such as ordering and purchasing tiles, fixtures, custom-built vanity or cabinets to make sure they can be delivered when your contractor needs them. And planning time is crucial for those with only one bathroom, as they will have to make arrangements for where to take a shower and use the toilet while the bathroom is taken apart.

    15. Final clean
    The final clean should include a thorough cleaning of all cabinetry, inside and out, ductwork, walls, floor, windows, and light fixtures. Although often overlooked in the planning phase, in the case of a major renovation you may want to consider contracting a cleaning service, which means additional costs that affect your budget. If you feel up to doing it yourself, you may need to add a day or two to your initial timing.


    Seriously? After I gut and rebuild it I have to fucking clean it too ....

    open walls can also prolong the renovation because you will more than likely need city inspections:pickme:
