Ever been paralyzed into not starting something because you don’t know how it will end? It’s natural to want to know the destination before starting a journey. Yet that nature might keep you from renovating a bathroom even when you badly need it done. How? Well, you know your bathroom has problems but haven’t figured out exactly what all the solutions will be, so you wait. And wait. And wait some more. It never gets done because it never gets started.
Beginning a remodel with the end in mind is wise, but sometimes it’s good to rethink what “the end” really is. Try thinking of “the end” as the resolution to whatever problems your bathroom was causing you. That way, you can quickly see that the specific products and construction ideas don’t need to be nailed down before you call a good bathroom remodeling contractor. Those are the means to the end, not the end itself. And in that regard, you really do know the end after all. The end is a bathroom that no longer feels like a problem, be that an aesthetic or functional one.
A good remodeling contractor isn’t just someone who’s handy with a hammer. Remodeling is also about coming up with creative solutions for a client. A remodeler should be able to look at the woes your bathroom is causing, and then offer a menu of creative solutions. All you need to know is what you don’t like about your current bathroom. Then the contractor can offer ideas, execute them, and deliver you to your destination: a bathroom you love.
