Is it really necessary to hire a professional and spend thousands of dollar for renovating your bathroom? No, you don’t need to. Ofcourse the project will depend on your skills, budget, your confidence and the amount of spare time you have, but there are certainly many things you can do yourself in the project. You also have the option to hire professionals for other complex things you are not comfortable about, like plumbing. If you don’t have the plumbing knowledge, then it is better to leave the work for the professionals.
If you are a DIY enthusiast and want to be a part of the renovation project, here are some tasks that you can actually carry out yourself.
If you just want to replace the hardware of your bathroom, you can do that by yourself. But ensure that you are only replacing the hardware and not completely relocating the pipes and fixtures, as that requires a better know-how.
If you are planning to completely remodel your bathroom from the scratch, you can carry out the demolition part yourself, so as to prepare a clean space for the professionals. However, before carrying out the task, do take advice of an expert as you certainly don’t want to damage the pipelines and electrical lines behind the wall.
If you are good with cutting tiles and setting up a toilet, you can save this part of the project for yourself. This is one of most difficult and time consuming part of the project, as you’ll be dealing with hard to reach corners, tight spaces, and other places that require accurate measuring and patience.
Adding accents to your bathroom is another easy project that you can do it yourself. This is one of the simplest of tasks and you can do it as and when you get time.
If you are planning to completely remodeling the bathroom and can only work on weekends, then your bathroom will be out of commission for maybe two months or even more. If you do not have enough time or if you do not feel confident enough to perform the task, then a better option is to let the professionals handle the job for you. Ofcourse, the total cost of the project will run up that way, but you will also be able to get the project finish sooner that too without the risk of getting into some plumbing or wiring troubles.
