Do Your Homework
Before you get too far, make sure to do extensive research into what types of bathroom plumbing styles, materials, and features you tend to like. Nowadays, with visual social media platforms like Pinterest and Instagram, as well as tons of home improvement enthusiast blogs out on the internet, it’s as easy as ever to find inspiring examples.
However, make sure you’re also realistic ‒ no all styles and designs will be right for your bathroom. Consider the overall style of the property in general and what’s going on in other rooms. In addition, it is crucial to consider the size and space of the bathroom, because not all designs and styles apply to every size equally. Large, spacious bathrooms and small, narrow bathrooms can have very different strengths and weaknesses. If possible, try to find examples that are close to your own bathroom’s fundamental characteristics.
Make Sure the Project Actually Adds Value
Don’t just do a bathroom home improvement plumbing project because it sounds like a good idea ‒ make sure the project is designed and planned to actually add some value. It doesn’t have to be monetary, actually. Even if it’s simply improving the comfort or functionality of your primary residence, it’s delivering value into your life.
However, monetary improvement is always a plus, right? Many times it’s even a high-priority goal for the project, so pick enhancements that will also raise the valuation of the property. For example, refacing cabinets, updating the flooring, installing a stylish sink and fixtures, enhancing the lighting and revamping the shower are all ways to increase property value.
Choose Your Plumber Wisely
The last thing you want is to plan out a beautiful bathroom plumbing project and then have it turn out to be a hideous nightmare. While that might seem extreme, it’s not unheard of to have a bad plumber botch a bathroom plumbing project ‒ sometimes even reducing property value or causing damage.
Make sure you have high standards when selecting the plumber for your bathroom plumbing project, just as you would with any other work related hire. Be sure to check their reputation online with customer review services like Yelp and Better Business Bureau. In addition, make sure the plumber has several years of experience and is fully licensed and insured. We cannot stress enough how important it is to stay away from under qualified temporary workers from Craigslist or off the street if they’re not licensed and not insured. In fact, not having insurance puts both parties at risk during plumbing work so it’s really just reckless to choose an uninsured worker for your project.
Make Sure the Plumber Stays on Track
After you’ve found your plumber and work has started, don’t neglect to follow up and see how things are going. You don’t need to overdo it and butt in frequently, which can be distracting, but it’s also fair to have progress checks from time to time and make sure things are going as planned. If something isn’t going as planned or the plumber needs to make diverge from the initial plan, you should know about it and authorize any changes to the plan.
