Are You Prepared to Meet Your Bathroom Remodeling Contractor?
Are you ready to remodel your bathroom? Your answer to that question may be a big fat “Yes!” but that’s not enough to kick things off to a strong start, without doing a little more thoughtful reflection on the project at hand. Take the following things into consideration, and you will get a lot more out of your first meeting with your bathroom remodeling contractor.Share Your Goals and DesiresWhy are you getting your bathroom remodeled in the first place? Do you hate the layout of your bathroom for a particular reason? Does the space not work well for two people? Do you need specific types of storage space for designated purposes? The more information you present your contractor, the easier it is for him or her to take a walk in your shoes. Seeing the project from your unique perspective will help contractors with decisions, questions, and recommendations relevant to your goals.Everyone Loves PicturesPictures are always good. This may be one of the most fun activities you can do, leading up to your first meeting. Take a look at home remodeling magazines, the contractor’s online gallery of previous projects, and websites like Pinterest and Houzz.com, and bookmark some of your favorite looks. The more specific you are about what you want, the sooner the project will be able to get on its way.Life During a RemodelWhile the bathroom is being remodeled, think about how it will impact your day to day life. Is this the only bathroom in the house? Is there another bathroom that will have to be shared with more people until the remodel is completed? Also, consider the safety of your pets, children, and the elderly. Prepare to ask your contractor how these issues will be addressed.Those were just a few things to think about before having your first meeting with your contractor. Please feel free to give us a call if you have any questions or would like some additional ideas on how to make the most of that first meeting.
