Remodel Your Bathroom In Time For Christmas

Summary: Get your home ready for Christmas with a brand new bathroom. Be inspired and make sure you're ready to welcome guests and family into your home.

What could be a better Christmas present to yourself than a bathroom remodel? It's the time of year when you have to be ready for guests, with both friends and family dropping by to visit. As well as providing your guests with a lovely new bathroom, and showing it off to them, you can also enjoy a new bathroom at what can often be a stressful time of year. If you want to have a new bathroom in time for Christmas, it needs to be finished quickly so you're not left with a half-complete bathroom over the holidays.

Is Now a Good Time to Remodel?

Perhaps you've been thinking about a bathroom remodel for a while, but haven't managed to get started yet. Is now the right time to do it, as Christmas rapidly approaches? You might think that it could be a bad idea, with so many other things to do before Christmas arrives. However, now could be the perfect time to treat yourself to a brand new bathroom. You'll have a beautiful bathroom that you can enjoy at Christmas, and you won't be thinking about remodelling over the period, when you should be relaxing.

How Often Should You Remodel Your Bathroom?

Knowing when it's time to remodel your bathroom isn't always easy. Even when things start to get a bit shabby, perhaps you only need to touch up a few things to get them looking like new again. But eventually, a remodel might be required or you might just want one. Rather than putting an exact date on it, which might be somewhere between 10 and 15 years, it's better to look for certain signs. Maybe everything in your bathroom is showing signs of wear and tear, or it's just looking out of date. On the other hand, perhaps you just don't like it anymore.

Planning Your Bathroom Remodel

If you want to complete a bathroom remodel in time for Christmas, you need to plan it well. Doing everything in the right order and getting it done quickly will ensure it's finished on time. The first thing to do is obviously to remove the things that need to be taken out. You're likely to start with the tiles, then remove the bathroom suite. Any plumbing will be among the first jobs you want to do, including putting in heating appliances, such as towel rails, and installing the new suite. You might need to start tiling and put in flooring before installing the bathroom suite, and then complete your tiling after installation. Fitting a new light fixture is likely to come last.

Budgeting Your Remodel

When remodeling your bathroom, you need to think about what you'll be spending. Everything will need to be factored into your budget, from the cost of gutting your bathroom to installing a new shower bath suite. The typical cost of a bathroom remodel is somewhere around £3,000 or more. However, the total cost will depend on your goals and just how luxurious you want your new bathroom to be.

Designing Your Bathroom

Designing your bathroom is obviously a major step when you're planning a remodel. It's not something that you want to rush, but it also doesn't have to take too long if you don't have much time before you want to finish your remodel. Start by looking at the main elements of the bathroom, deciding between modern or traditional bathroom suites to find something that you like. Once you have chosen your main suite, you can start to think about tiles and flooring, as well as other elements, such as light fixtures, mirrors or anything else that you might want in your bathroom.

Finishing In Time for Christmas

If you want to finish your remodel in time for Christmas, you still have a good number of weeks left. However, it's best not to leave it too late. Although you're on a time limit, you also want to ensure you end up with a quality bathroom. Spend some time first finding the perfect contractor to help you install your new bathroom, unless you want to do the work yourself. You need someone reliable and punctual to ensure you won't be left with a half-finished bathroom over Christmas.

Remodel your bathroom in time for Christmas and it will be the perfect Christmas present to yourself and perhaps for any guests who come to stay.
