Why you shouldn't do the work on your bathroom-remodeling project
If you are planning to redesign your bathroom then you might be
thinking about doing some or all of the work yourself. You might
think differently when you see what is required to accomplish the
The size and complexity of your bathroom-remodeling project does
depend on what you are planning to do of course. Many remodeling
projects involve little more than a new coat of paint and a few
new tiles. If this is the extent of your plans then don't be put
off from doing the job yourself. You are probably very capable of
carrying out this king of project and the only caution I would give
you is please complete the job as quickly as you can to avoid the
room looking a mess for a long time.
Lets assume that you are doing a little more than repainting the
walls in your bathroom. A typical bathroom redesign involves replacing
old worn out fixtures with new and possibly rearranging the floor
plan to allow for new features or to make more space. You might
even be thinking of removing or adding walls to make the room larger
or even smaller if you are trying to reclaim some room for your
bedroom perhaps. Below is a list of some of the tasks that you will
need to perform to complete your bathroom remodeling:

- Complying with legal requirements.

- Building works - walls, widows etc.
- Finish interior walls and allow to dry.
- Install new bathroom fixtures.
- Connect plumbing.
- Connect electrics.
- Tile walls and seal all round.
- Rework when problems arise.
To deal with the above task list you are going to need skills in
some or all of the following trades:

- Flooring specialist
- Bathroom fitter
This is a lot to think about and what initially might have looked
like a nice simple and straightforward job can quickly escalate
into a big job for the home do-it-yourself remodeling enthusiast.
Just imagine what you will do if something goes wrong!
Bathroom Remodeling Causes Bathroom Down Time
Remember that all the time that you are working on your bathroom
you won't be able to use it. If you have another bathroom in your
house that you can use then this isn't going to be such a problem
but if you don't then you have to find alternative arrangements
before you start on the project. Even with alternative arrangements
in place you aren't going to be popular with the family if the project
takes too long.
You will be faced with this problem no matter who does the work
of course but it is a good reason for wanting to get the job done
as quickly as possible and minimise the inconvenience to your family.
