How to Make it Through A Denver Bathroom Remodel

November 8, 2017

The bathroom is where you get ready for work, unwind after a stressful day, and prepare for bed, so a lot of time is spent in this room. As a result, many people find that remodeling their bathrooms can be inconvenient since they are often shut out of this room until the project is complete. But fortunately, a Denver bathroom remodel doesn’t have to completely disrupt your day-to-day life. Here’s how to make it through a bathroom remodel:

Contain the Dust and Debris

A remodel may involve tearing out old cabinets or sanding down drywall, which means there is bound to be a lot of dust and debris floating in the air. It’s important to work with your contractor to ensure this dust and debris is contained to the bathroom area so it doesn’t affect the air quality in the rest of your home. This is typically done by hanging a heavy sheet of plastic over the doorway that blocks dust and debris from flying through the door.

Some contractors will also put a fan in the bathroom window that will create a draft of wind that pushes the dust and debris outside. As long as the dust and debris is only in the bathroom, the rest of your home should still be livable. Learn more about surviving a bathroom remodel.

Ask A Neighbor For Help

Do you only have one bathroom in your home? If so, you may need to ask a neighbor for a helping hand while it is being remodeled. Get in touch with your neighbor before you commit to the remodel and ask if it would be possible to use their bathroom while yours is being remodeled. Then, ask your contractor to figure out which days the bathroom will be completely unusable so you can let your neighbor know when you will need to use his bathroom.

Use the Kitchen Sink

Take your toiletries out of the bathroom before the remodel begins and bring them to the kitchen sink. Use the kitchen sink to wash your face or brush your teeth instead of walking through a construction zone in your bathroom. It may feel odd getting ready for work or bed while standing in the kitchen, but it’s a small price to pay for a beautiful new bathroom!

Set Up A Temporary Shower

If you don’t have another shower in the house, ask your contractor if it’s possible to set up a temporary shower. Many homeowners set up a temporary fiberglass shower in their basements that will drain right into the utility tub floor drain. Although this will cost you extra, it’s worth the added expense if it makes you more comfortable during the remodel.
