Six Do’s and Don’ts of a Bathroom Remodel

Bathroom RemodelYou’ve likely heard it a hundred times. When preparing your home for the real estate market, kitchens and bathrooms sell homes. Whether you’re selling your home or not, the fact remains that these are two rooms you’re going to spend a lot of time in. With that in mind, a good bathroom remodel can increase your home’s value and make it comfortable for years to come.

Depending on who you ask, in 2016 the average cost to remodel a bathroom was $10,499 to $14,975. Where are homeowners spending that money? Replacing boring tile with updated surfaces and putting in new faucets and light fixtures is just the beginning of a complete bathroom remodel.

Undertaking a bathroom remodel on your own can be intimidating. There are plumbers and electricians and even finish carpenters and cabinet makers to hire. However, the team at Handyman Professionals in the Tuscaloosa and Northport area of Alabama offers all these remodeling services. There’s no need to find separate contractors for each task when Handyman Professionals is on the job.

While you’re considering what you’d like to include in your bathroom remodel, Handyman Professionals has a few do’s and don’ts for you.


  • Budget for the unexpected. Hidden water damage is common in bathroom remodels, especially if your home is older.
  • Build a bigger shower, even splurging on an oversized one. Big bathtubs are out and spacious showers are in.
  • Account for ventilation. Bathrooms are steamy places. To avoid mold and mildew, ensure you have good ventilation.


  • Don’t cut corners on qualified labor. Good tile can be pricy, so don’t risk the installation with a DIYer.
  • Don’t skimp on key materials. You’ll be grateful for the quality of the products and any lifetime warranties available.
  • Don’t forget about the future. It’s always a good idea to think ahead to your golden years. Consider remodeling your shower so there is nothing to step over to get in.
