The Hilarious (and Slightly Painful) Truth About Bathroom Renovations


Ah, the bathroom renovation. A time for joy! A time for fresh starts! A time to realize that your shower drain wasn't up to code and now your entire floor needs to be ripped out. But hey, at least you'll have a beautiful new bathroom in the end, right?

In this blog post, we'll take a lighthearted look at the essential steps of a bathroom renovation, from planning to the big reveal (and the inevitable post-renovation meltdown when you realize you forgot to add an outlet for your curling iron).

Step 1: Planning and Style

This is where the fun begins! Pinterest, Instagram, home improvement magazines...fill your brain with inspirational images of bathrooms that look like they belong in a spa. Then, reality sets in. How much does that giant soaking tub actually cost? Do we really need heated towel racks? (Spoiler alert: yes, heated towel racks are the best invention ever).

Tip: Once you've chosen your dream bathroom, set a budget and then halve it. That's probably closer to what you'll actually spend.

Step 2: Demolition

Let the games begin! Or, more accurately, let the dust fly. Demolition is the exciting (read: terrifying) part of any renovation. It's also a great time to unearth all sorts of hidden treasures in your walls, like vintage plumbing or a rogue family of nesting mice.

Tip: Wear a mask and eye protection. Seriously, there will be dust everywhere.

Step 3: Plumbing

This is where things get real. Unless you're a certified plumber, it's best to leave this step to the professionals. Otherwise, you might end up with a shower that sprays water everywhere but you.

Tip: Find a good plumber and befriend them. You'll need them.

Step 4: Walls and Tiles

Now it's time to start making your dream bathroom a reality! This is where you can get creative with your tile choices and wall colors. But remember, tiny mosaic tiles look amazing in photos, but they're a nightmare to clean.

Tip: If you're going with bold colors or patterns, keep the rest of your bathroom simple.

Step 5: Cabinetry

Cabinets are a great way to add storage and style to your bathroom. But they can also be a major expense.

Tip: Consider installing some open shelving to save money and show off your fancy towels.

Step 6: Lighting and Fixtures

The right lighting can make a big difference in your bathroom. And don't forget the finishing touches like towel racks, hooks, and a toilet paper holder that won't fall off the wall the first time you use it.

Tip: Dimmable lighting is a must for creating a spa-like atmosphere.

Step 7: Clean Up and Enjoy!

After what will likely feel like an eternity, your bathroom renovation is finally complete! Now you can stand back and admire your beautiful new space. Just try not to think about the mountain of debt you've accumulated in the process.

Tip: Pour yourself a glass of wine, take a long bath (or shower), and relax! You deserve it.

Bathroom renovations may be stressful, but they can also be a lot of fun. By following these tips and keeping a sense of humor, you can survive (and even enjoy!) the process of creating your dream bathroom.
