People often think of a DIY bathroom remodeling project as a challenge. There is certainly a lot to do – painting, decorating, fixtures and fittings, replacing sinks and baths, shower installation or improvement, plumbing, electrical, tiling, waterproofing … it’s a pretty extensive list.
Here are a few reasons why DIY bathroom remodeling is often a bad idea.
You Might Give Up and End Up with a Half Functioning Bathroom
Most people begin DIY projects like a force of nature – making all the plans, buying all the materials and arranging time off work. But pretty soon they realize how difficult and back-breaking a bathroom remodeling project can be. They run out of time and have to spend their weekends working on the remodeling project. Eventually, they just lose enthusiasm completely and abandon the project.
The result is an unfinished, semi-functioning bathroom that will appeal to no one.
Even with the Best Endeavors, DIY Bathrooms Never Look as Good as the Magazines
You need a lot of talent in multiple disciplines in order to complete a DIY bathroom remodeling project and to be honest, there are not a lot of people who are skilled at painting and decorating and tiling and plumbing and waterproofing …
A professional remodeling company will hire the best people for each task, making sure their efforts as a whole come together to provide you with the remodeled bathroom that you have always desired.
You May Not Even be Allowed to DIY Your Bathroom Remodeling Project
For many bathroom remodeling projects you may need to interfere with plumbing and electricity. Not only do these individual aspects both have the potential for disaster, when combined they are even more dangerous.
Building regulations are unlikely to allow you to mess around too much with plumbing and electricity. You are going to need someone who has the proper license, so they are legally permitted to provide plumbing and/or electrical services. Such people will be suitably insured as well, whereas you – as a DIY bathroom remodeler – are very unlikely to be.
