Taking on a bathroom renovation project is a great way to update one of the most used rooms in your home. Whether you're freshening up an older space or completely gutting and rebuilding, there are a few key things every homeowner can expect to encounter during their bathroom makeover.

Materials

Two of the most popular materials used in bathrooms are ceramic and porcelain tile for floors and walls. They recommend researching different styles and price points to fit your design and budget (1). The Family Handyman also suggests considering luxury vinyl plank flooring, which has gained popularity for its water resistance and lower cost compared to tile (2)

Plumbing and Electrical Work

Plumbing fixtures like faucets, drains and supply lines will likely need attention when you renovate or customize your bathroom. It is commonly advised calling a licensed plumber for any work involving existing water or drain lines (3). Be cautious that new light fixtures or fans may necessitate wiring and electrical outlet updates best handled by an electrician.

Permit and Inspection Process

Local building permits are mandatory for most bathroom renovations. Factor in associated fees when planning your budget and timeline. Permits help ensure all work complies with plumbing and electrical codes for safety.

Installation and Unforeseen Delays

Installing new fixtures, flooring, and cabinetry is labor intensive and may uncover additional problems. Allow extra time for hiccups that could lengthen the job.

Additionally, Lowe’s advises budgeting for potential minor material cost overruns (4).
