Every bathroom renovation timelines are different. So, there is no set-in-stone timeframe for this type of home renovation project. However, many different factors can shorten – or lengthen – the expected timeline of your bathroom renovation. Let’s look at a few of the factors which affect your bathroom renovation timelines the most, now.
Are you building an entirely new bathroom or making major footprint changes?
If you are building an entirely new bathroom, you’ll need new or rerouted plumbing, which will likely mean the project will take a much longer time than if you were just updating the fixtures in the bathroom. The same is true of making major changes to your bathroom. Changes such as expanding a basement half-bathroom into a full bath with a shower/tub combination. So, keep this in mind when you’re planning your bathroom renovation and setting your expectations for project timelines.
Are you replacing plumbing fixtures in the same place, or moving them?
Replacing plumbing fixtures like toilets, showers, baths, vanities and sinks, and other such things are usually not that difficult or time-consuming. This is because the plumbing will be left in place. All that’s required is to demolish and remove the old fixtures and replace it. However, if you plan on reconfiguring your bathroom – moving the shower or sink, for example – this will take a longer time compared to just replacing the fixture without moving it.
Are you focusing primarily on adding new finishes & cosmetic changes?
Adding features like wainscoting, a feature wall, new lighting, shelving, fresh paint and making other such cosmetic changes can really change the way your bathroom looks and feels. Typically, these changes can be part of any bathroom renovation. They usually won’t add too much additional time to your bathroom renovation. If you are on a smaller budget and don’t have much time for a renovation, it may be better to focus on these kinds of cosmetic changes and save the big remodelling for further down the road.
