If you are planning to renovate your bathroom for a fresher, new look, there are some things that you need to do. First, know the needed materials for your bathroom renovation.
Some of the required tools and supplies are as follows for a do-it-yourself or DIY Bathroom remodel:
- Power drill
- Pry bar
- Adjustable wrench
- Flathead screwdriver
- Utility knife
- Chalk line
- Extension cord
There are other optional tools that are recommended for use as well which is the wet-dry shop-vac and cordless drill.
The second step is to remove or demolish bathroom fixtures. Start by draining and removing the toilet for any unpleasant spills. If you want to remove your bathtub, make sure you cover it up and remove the bath tile up to the studs.
Remove the insulation from your walls and do not use a hammer on doing the insulation but a reciprocating saw to cut out the panels. Here, you will also need to use your safety mask, gloves, and goggles.
After doing all these, remove cabinets, vanities, mirrors, floor tiles, and all the fixtures that you want to change. Remove first the baseboards and reinstall them after removing the tile flooring.
Another tip that can benefit your bathroom remodeling project is to rent a dumpster for your demolition debris.
