Make the Most of Your Bathroom Design Meeting
September 4, 2018
If you’re thinking about having your bathroom remodeled, then you probably have a few ideas about how you want the new room to look and function. When you work with a design/build firm like Bath Doctor, one of the first steps in the process will be sitting down to go over your ideas in a design meeting.
To make the most of your meeting, there are a few things we encourage you to think about before hand. Here’s how to make the most of your bathroom design meeting:
Set A Clear Budget
Before you approach any type of remodeling project, no matter who you work with or which room it’s in, you need to outline a clear budget. Your budget should start with what you’re willing to spend overall.
Then, within that figure, you should set aside a small percentage for unexpected occurrences that may happen during the remodeling process. This is especially important if you’re having sections of your plumbing moved or walls torn down.
You want to make sure to outline your budget so you don’t end up spending more than you intend to.
Essentials Vs. Possibilities
Once you have a clear budget outlined, you should start thinking about the fixtures and features you are looking forward to. Since it’s early in the process, feel free to think as extravagantly as you like. Once you have a list of the kinds of features you want from your bathroom remodel, you should divide the list into two smaller lists.
One list should have “essentials” and the other should have “possibilities.” The essentials list is for features you absolutely have to have. The other list is for those bathroom features you would like, but are willing to forgo in favor of dedicating more resources to your essentials.
The main reason we suggest these two lists is so your must-have bathroom features are given the budget they deserve. After all, you might want to spend more to upgrade your essentials as we talk about the process. This may force you to eliminate items from your list, but this is why you have a “possibilities” list in the first place! That being said, your Baltimore bathroom design/build contractor will do their best to get you everything you want from your new space.
