Bathroom Contractors, Design Options, And Planning

If you are using bathroom contractors to remodel your bathroom, you'll need to give them some information to help design and plan your new bathroom plumbing needs. If you already have bathroom design ideas, give them to the contractor in advance, and be sure to include the following information:

  • Counter top materials - do you prefer stone, a solid surface, or a laminate?
  • Electric outlets and fixtures - do you want to add or move something?
  • Sink, toilet, and tub - do you want a larger size, a different configuration, or a new location?
  • What type of cabinets do you want?
  • Do you want new flooring?

If you aren't sure on any of these bathroom remodeling ideas, check with the sales rep to look through a catalog or see samples of your options. You can look over a wide range of fixtures, toilet diagrams, and bathroom design ideas before committing. Always get multiple estimates on your final design with alternative materials and configurations to see how adding or changing fixtures or materials affects the bottom line.
