One of the major commitments involved with bathroom remodels is increasing the size of the room. Some of the things you should consider when conducting an expansion project with your bathroom remodel include:
Finding the Space
The first thing you’ll need to consider is where you’re going to find the space for the expansion. Any expansion will involve a reduction in another part of the house. Where your bathroom is located plays a significant role in the areas affected. If you’re lucky, there might be a closet you could “borrow” the space from, but in most cases, significant areas like bedrooms or lounges could be affected.
Plumbing and Wiring
Any major bathroom expansion is likely to involve significant plumbing and electrical wiring. In most cases, you’ll need to acquire permits for these activities or face a hefty fine. You’ll also have to ensure that these sectors are handled efficiently by professionals to prevent the potential for water damage or electrical fires.
The last thing that needs to be taken into consideration is the structural integrity of your house. If you knock down the wrong beam, a whole segment might just come tumbling down.
