When planning your remodel projects, the most important thing is to start with your end result in mind.
We’ve all heard the old saying of “If you don’t know where you’re going, how can you know how to get there?”.
This is true if you’re “only” doing a major refresh, which I define as putting new and better stuff back where the original stuff was. It is especially true when you are rearranging the layout of your space which involves moving plumbing fixtures and electrical wiring.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Your plan does not have to be 100% complete before you start, but at least 80% or maybe 90% done. If you know the general style of fixtures you want, you can decide on specific fixtures later.
Second, ensure the professionals you are working with know their stuff, both as regards their craftsmanship, and their ability to work with you. This is true of your designer (if you’re using one) and your contractor.
A technically competent doctor with a terrible bedside manner is not your best choice (not that hospitals give you much choice, but I digress).
An incredibly talented craftsman who also communicates poorly will not be your best choice in a contractor.
When you line up your end result and your team up front, your remodel project goes smoothly.
