How to Survive a Bathroom Remodel

Posted on: September 13, 2016

Any remodeling job is disruptive. It’s disruptive to your daily routine. Especially when it involves your most personal space – your bathroom. And especially if you have only one bathroom.

So as you plan your bathroom remodeling project, here are a few suggestions that will make your project as stress-free as possible.

Take a Staycation

If the budget allows, find a local hotel/motel and book a room for the duration. Many properties offer special discounts for residents, so ask about that. This solution will enable your contractors to move more quickly without the worry about accommodating schedules. It will also take you away from the mess and disarray that are part of every remodeling job.


If you must remain in your home during the bathroom remodel, it is a good idea to use fans to ventilate the bathroom and close environs to drive dust outside. Placing a fan in an adjacent window will help with dust removal.


Drywall dust finds a way into every nook and cranny in your home. Close doors when possible. Cover floors and furnishings in those rooms closest to the bathroom. Make sure your crew covers their walkways with plastic sheeting.


Before you start your bathroom remodel project, make sure that all new construction materials are present in your home. You do not want to build in delays awaiting late deliveries.

Embrace the Madness

Like any remodeling project, yours will cause you stress for a few days or weeks, but in return it will provide you with more comfort.

Expect delays

Even the most carefully planned projects can hit roadblocks that cause delays. Remodeling jobs are sequential by nature, requiring certain tasks to be completed before others can begin.
