A bathroom is one of the most important rooms of the house. The room performs a number of functions that are needed on a regular basis throughout the day, so when a bathroom is out of service you will notice a serious disruption in your routine. To help you manage stress during a bathroom remodel, follow these five tips.
Set a schedule. If the entire family will be using one bathroom in the meantime, sit down and set a schedule. Consider everyone’s needs and routines, and then block off times for each family member to shower and use the bathroom for dressing, shaving, and so on.
Do your business elsewhere. No, not that business. Some things can only be done in the bathroom. However, setting up a brightly-lit vanity elsewhere can provide a place for doing makeup and hair, or even shaving. And brushing your teeth in the kitchen sink certainly isn’t the worse thing in the world.
Grab a bathroom caddy. The family members who have been displaced will still need access to their bath products during the remodel. Buy each of these family members a bathroom caddy, so that they can keep their personal products mobile. Try to reduce the number of items to a manageable number of everyday necessities. This is a great time to clean out clutter, too, so that your newly remodeled bathroom will be easier to organize when it’s finished.
Consider a vacation. Some families would rather schedule their bathroom remodel during a vacation, so that they skip the stress and return home to beautiful results. If you’d rather go this route, we can help you plan a project around your next vacation time.
Focus on the future. Living in a construction zone can feel stressful, but try to focus on the result you’re going to achieve. Pretty soon you’ll be enjoying a fresh, newly renovated bathroom that is just as functional as it is beautiful.
