How to Prepare For Your Bathroom Remodel

The bathroom is a sacred space, it is often where we begin and end our days, so when taking on a full bathroom remodel we, at Fine Design, do everything to make it as smooth a process as possible. We handle it all so you can relax and enjoy the process, scheduling everything from deliveries to contractors to inspections.


So, where should you start?


Research. Sites like Pinterest and Houzz are excellent visual tools, as you browse designs save pictures with elements you might like to see in your home.

At your initial consultation, our experienced designer will come to your home to discuss your wants and needs for your new bathroom and measure your space. In the following weeks, the designer will work up an estimate and design for your bathroom and set up a time for you to come into our showroom, review, and make changes to the plan as needed to fit your personal preferences. After our presentation is complete and contracts are signed, we will get you on our calendar and begin ordering materials and scheduling contractors for your project.

Before Your Remodel


Before we begin your remodel, we ask that you remove everything from your bathroom, including:

  • Emptying all your cabinets and drawers

  • Clearing all toiletries, shower caddies, loofas, etc. from showers and bathtubs

  • Removing decorations

  • Clearing off counters

  • Relocate trash can and other items on the floor to another area

This step of the process is a great time to go through your toiletries and part with those no longer in use. Don't forget to label your boxes, and if you need help with any of this, please let us know, we would be happy to assist you.


We recommend designating an alternative space to act as a temporary bathroom for the duration of your remodel. If you are sharing a bathroom with more than one other person, it may be helpful to separate tasks into different areas to prevent bathroom traffic jams, for example, designating the kitchen sink for teeth brushing or a desk for hair and makeup.


We love pets, but it is important to keep them out of the workspace, for safety and quality purposes.

After Your Remodel


When your remodel is complete, a professional cleaner will come out and make your renovated space shine.

When the dust settles it is finally time to move into your new bathroom and unpack. Now is a great time to rethink where you want everything to go, especially if your floor layout has changed with the remodel, for example, it may make more sense to store towels in the new linen cabinet rather than under the sink.

Decorate your space and bring in personal touches to really make it feel like home.
