    Put Down That Sledgehammer! Remodeling Your Bathroom Takes Planning (Part 2)

     / Martha Orellana

    So, you’re still thinking of remodeling your bathroom... There might be any number of reasons you’ve finally decided to take the plunge but as we shared last week in Put Down That Sledgehammer! Remodeling Your Bathroom Takes Planning (Part 1) you will want to put some serious planning in before you get started. 

    So what additional pearls of wisdom—or words of warning—does Bart have for the first-time renovator?

    Consider the Space You’re Working In, and Your Contractor’s Expertise

    Steam showers have a small footprint and consume very little water—two gallons per 20-minute steam session, on average—so you won’t encounter what Bart calls “the cascade of renovations.”

    For example, “A homeowner might install a 60 gallon spa tub with jets, and then be obliged to replace their 40 gallon water heater with a larger one. But maybe the larger water heater requires additional venting, or more amps on the circuit, or has too large a footprint for the space available. Also, you might find it necessary to shore up the floor of the bathroom—60 gallons of water weighs a lot, plus the weight of the tub, plus the weight of the human being in the tub.”

    So, you’re thinking of remodeling your bathroom. There might be any number of reasons you’ve finally decided to take the plunge: Your clawfoot tub is suffering from carpal tunnel. The cracks in your tile wall have started to resemble an evil bunny. That faux-fur leopard print toilet cover was concealing a multitude of sins. You’re simply too vain for that ugly vanity. 

    Or maybe your decision is about more than aesthetics. Perhaps you’ve got an aging relative coming to live with you (or you, yourself, are an aging relative) and you’re seeing the advantages of a step-in shower. Or you want your bathroom to be ADA compliant. Or maybe you’re finally tackling that persistent plumbing problem head-on, and you might as well give the bathroom a facelift while everything’s torn up. These are all valid reasons.
