Remodeling your bathroom is a great investment for your home. If you plan on staying in your home, then you will have a beautifully updated bathroom to enjoy. If you plan on moving in the near future, then a remodeled bathroom will increase the value of your home.
The first thing you need to do when planning a bathroom renovation is to call professionals who will provide you with information on plumbing a bathroom. Whether you are making some small changes to your bathroom or whether you are planning a large remodel, you will want to consult with a plumber who will be able to advise you on the layout of the bathroom, identifying all of the plumbing dos and don’ts.
A plumber will help you determine what type of layout you can have for your new bathroom and what plumbing a bathroom will entail. It is a good rule of thumb to assume that the more walls that contain plumbing pipes in your bathroom, the more the renovation will cost. If you want a new bathroom, but don’t have the budget to move bathtubs, sinks and toilets around, a plumber will help you determine what you will be able to do within your bathroom’s existing plans.
However, if the plumbing systems in the existing bathroom are extremely old and need to be replaced, it might be a good time to move a shower drain or switch the plumbing for a toilet to a different area of the bathroom, since the plumbing might need to be gutted anyway. A professional plumber will be able to take a look at the existing plumbing system and let you know what is salvageable and what requires replacement.
If you are thinking of remodeling your bathroom for your own family’s needs, it is always wise to also consider what might add value to your home if you do decide to sell the home in the future. For example, if you are considering taking the bathtub out the guest bathroom and replacing it with just a standalone shower, it might not be the best decision for selling that home in the future. If a residential home is in an area with many families, a home that has two bathrooms that both contain bathtubs will be more valuable.
A professional will be able to give you many ideas and tips for plumbing a bathroom. When you want to renovate your bathroom, give a plumber a call.
