Default What is the most difficult part in remodeling your bathroom?

Hello guys,

Bathroom is one of the great part of the house. So, it should be good, clean and comfortable. Some builder build their home in long years ago. In this case, it is necessary to remodeling your house as well as your bathroom. I want to know the problems when we remodel the bathroom. Please suggest me with your lovely words.

Thank you

Make sure you "true & plumb" the walls before you do the water proofing, then fixing the tiles.
My wife had our builder us large formate tiles on the walls 12" wide x 24" high with a highlight border at 6'.
The builder did all the above and wow, it came up a treat.
Cheers, crowie

The problems are based on how much you are planing on changing. The two hardest things to change are the placement of the toilet and the tub. Even if you leave the tub in the same place connecting the new drain up to what is already there can be a problem. If you plan on running new water lines then I would highly recommend you switch over to Pex for the piping. New tile walls and floor are actually the easiest part of the job.

Finishing It! It always takes longer to get it done than your planned, so you put into use before it is complete. Then the small things take forever to complete or never get done. Things like paint, cabinet finish, paper holder, the light fixture that you bought for it.

I like Tim's response but with me I have the customers money as motivation to get started. As remodeling being my trade, the bathroom has to be my least favorite of all. The reason being is if the bathtub has to be replaced in a older home. More times than not in these older homes there either has to be a wall opened up or the tub cut in half to even get it out of the bathroom. They definately weren't thinking about replacement when they built walls around them. If you don't have that problem facing you, you will be fine. Where I live we make sure we go back with the newer anti-scald faucets, etc. Bring everything up to code. Good luck with your adventure!

I agree with Steve. Just redoing mine recently, the tub replacement got the highest number of "F" bombs. Luckily, my sons a plumber, so he did most of the work. But it gave us fits. Had to tear out part of the walls, as Steve said, older homes don't give you a whole lot of room to get the tube out and in. My bathrooms are rather small, so it made it even worse. But we got'r done!

Hi, Tramond.

You can do a plan for everything in your remodeling project and follow it as much as you can. If you have the original drawings for water lines and wiring, it will be much the better.
For me the most difficult job is to match the new walls decoration with the old one. Most of the times the colors of the paints, wallpaper motif, tiles format and so on are not available from the shelves and you finish changing all the actual decoration.

I am not good at this project´s stage so I let this to my wife who knows how to mix colors tones, styles, etc.

We, woodworkers are everywhere!!!
