However, taking a decision to do everything yourself, start with the plan of your DIY bathroom remodel steps. Check if your bath tub has a leak and apply caulk. Look at the walls of your bathroom.
If they are tiled, you may simply wash them properly. The painted walls will need a new layer of paint. The bathroom mirror may really look “too old”, adding some tacky look to your home, so change it. Simply buy a new one, otherwise even with the best remodelling and replaced shower heads this room will look tacky. Do not forget about the floor.
If its laminate surface is damaged, it will be better to replace it.This room square is small, and this replacement will be not expensive. Check if the vanity still looks well. If not, refurbish it and change the vanity countertop. Refinish the other bathroom stuff. It will be cheaper than the replacement.
The average do it yourself bathroom remodel costs times less than the “global” replacement of everything in this room. Do not forget to keep your camera close when you work. Take pictures of your DIY bathroom remodel before and after. Comparing these photos you will be surprised how much can you do yourself, even with no help.
