Bathroom Remodeling Checklist For 2022

There are many reasons why people remodel their bathrooms. They may want to improve the appearance of their bathroom or make repairs. Sometimes, it is necessary to remodel the bathroom in order to make it safer for older adults or children. There are some things to remember, regardless of the reason you want to remodel your bathroom.

Before you start your bathroom remodel project, it’s essential to make a list of everything you need and what you want. This will help you keep on track and stay within your budget.

Decide what you want to do differently

The first step to any remodeling project is to decide what you want. You might want to change the layout of your bathroom. You could also choose to completely redesign your bathroom and start over.

Get inspired

It is not enough to know what you want. You should get inspiration to help you envision the bathroom you desire. Look through magazines, search online or visit showrooms to find inspiration for the bathroom remodeling.

Set your budget

The budget is one of the most important bathrooms remodel tips. The budget is the amount you are willing to spend on the project. This will allow you to determine the type of fixtures and materials you are able to use. Before you hire a contractor to remodel your home, it is important to understand your financial limits.

Get estimates from several contractors

Get estimates from several contractors before you start your project. You can then compare prices and negotiate the best price. To ensure that you are getting an accurate price, get at least three estimates.

Select the right materials

You have many options for bathroom remodeling materials. You should choose the one that suits your budget and meets your needs. Laminate countertops might be a better option than granite countertops if your budget is tight.

Hiring a professional contractor

Hiring a professional contractor is best if you are not confident doing the work. They are qualified and have the knowledge and experience to complete the job correctly. Before you hire a contractor for your project, make sure to interview them all.

Here are some bathroom remodeling ideas

Are you unsure of the changes that you would like to make in your bathroom? These are some of the most popular ideas:

Make sure to update the fixtures

If your fixtures are broken, leaking, or no longer working properly, replace them. You should consider replacing your fixtures if they are old or do not match the style of your bathroom remodel. You can choose more energy-efficient bathroom fixtures that have a modern design.

Install new lighting

Lighting is an essential part of any space, including the bathroom. To create a relaxed atmosphere, you might want task lighting near the sink or a dimmer switch. There are many options for lighting: overhead, recessed, or even a skylight.

Add more mirrors


Mirrors can help your bathroom appear bigger. Mirrors can make small spaces appear larger because they reflect light. Mirrors can also help you see more of yourself which is helpful for getting ready in the morning. Mirrors can also be used to increase storage space in a bathroom. Mirrors, when hung on the wall, can be used as cabinets to store extra items such as towels and toiletries.

Increase storage

If your bathroom is too cluttered, it might be worth adding storage. You could add shelves, cabinets, or even a medicine cupboard. To hang towels and other items, hooks or baskets can be used. You can create additional storage in a smaller bathroom by using the space below the sink or under the shower.

Install new flooring

If your bathroom flooring is starting to show signs of wear and parts are chipping away, a new one may be required. This floor is unsafe. If your bathroom floor becomes slippery, you should consider replacing it.

Bathroom flooring options are endless, but it is best to choose a non-slip flooring option like vinyl or tile. This will reduce the chance of injuries. You can also use laminate and wood.

Heated floors are possible

Heated floors in bathrooms will keep your feet warm and save you money. Heated floors can add luxury to your bathroom.

Paint the ceiling and walls

Paint the ceiling and walls of your bathroom to brighten it up. If you wish to make your space seem larger, choose a lighter color. You can also paint the walls a new coat in a neutral color or create an accent wall.

Safety features added

You may consider adding safety features to your bathroom if you have elderly or small children. Grab bars can be installed in the bathroom near the toilet or in the shower.

You can add a tub or shower to your bathroom.

You might consider installing a tub or shower if you don’t already have one. This is a great way for your bathroom to be more functional and relaxing.

Install a partition

A partition may be a good idea for a small bathroom. You will have privacy while using the toilet and taking a shower.

Add plants

Plants can make your bathroom more welcoming and improve the air quality.

Remodeling your bathroom is a major undertaking, but it can make your home look better. You can transform your bathroom into a dream space if you follow these tips. Before making any final decisions, consult with a professional contractor.

GI Construction - January 2024 I do not give 5 star ratings – As a process improvement professional, there is always room for improvement. 4 star is fabulous, but since this is an algorism I will deviate from my norm. In 2021 I had gone out to bid, only to find out that most construction and supply houses had prices that I found to be unacceptable. Products such as shower heads, faucets and cabinets were priced extremely high, they were also hard to get. So, we put this on hold and did smaller projects; outdoors, flooring, kitchen, etc. to show you we were getting introduced to construction projects. In October 2023, we went out to bid on renovating our 30-year-old, 2.5 bathrooms in Las Vegas. I reviewed many companies and found 3 that were reviewed well and had no issues with the board of contractors. After review of their costs and discussing how they would work the project, we decided on GI. They started the work when we had purchased all the materials that we needed to purchase, (shower heads, cabinets, basins, tile for the showers and floors, etc. They started their day at 7 am and worked to 3 PM. They take pride in the work and make sure it is done correctly. As an example, Jose (one of the tile guys) did the main bathroom shower and flooring. He worked his artistry in making it extremely beautiful. He would cut a piece for one of the benches, use it on top and take the other piece he just cut and place it in front, so it was a continuation. He did this on each of the benches and step over in the entrance. Just look closely at the main shower enclosure and you will see the quality. Problems yes! We were phasing in the project the main bathroom and ½ bath first, then the guest bathroom. After the main bathroom was completed, I turned on the hot water in the glass vessels we had picked out. I was waiting for the water in the shower to get warm. I turned around and saw the water was hot going into the vessel, so I turned it off – I thermal shocked the glass, it broke, fell to the floor, chipped the new tile and generally made things a mess! I called the team manager (Valentin) and told him what had happened, his response was “No problem - We’ll take care of it.” So, I reordered the glass vessels and got them re-installed. The tile I repaired with a chip kit I had used when we had redone the tile the prior year. The other issue we encountered was we lived in the home during the construction. Dust everywhere and constantly cleaning to keep the house livable. The bottom line to me is the quality of the people that are doing the work and their dedication to the customer’s complete satisfaction is one of the things that made this less arduous. The entire project took 7 weeks; 2 weeks delay due to our buying the wrong products and having to find replacement products. The GI team worked with us, guiding us to right suppliers and helping wherever they could. I will put pictures of GI Construction’s finished work and during the project. Hopefully you will be able to tell their quality. Just a side note: Valentin and his teams kept this project going Monday thru Friday. They don’t work on the weekends, but pulled a half day on Saturday a couple of times to meet my schedule. I can’t say enough of Valentin’s professionalism! The customer is always in the forefront of his mind, making them feel good, lowering their anxiety about the project.

We reached out to GI Construction to do some work for our bathroom remodel and could not be happier with our experience. They were professional from start to finish, always on time, answered any questions I had throughout the project, and just did a great job overall. During our planning stage Isaac really took his time to ensure that the work they were doing was going to be both functional and practical. Both he and Valentin wanted to make sure that they were giving us the best possible product and went over every possible design to help us choose the best one for our needs. In a time where good, trustworthy contractors are hard to find, GI Construction sets a standard that should be held across the industry. Thank you GI Construction for all your work, it was worth every penny!

We hired GI construction to take over a small bathroom remodel of a shower. The first contractor we hired did a horrible job, we lost money and had to terminate his services in the middle of tiling. Issac the owner and Valentin the project supervisor met with us and went over everything step by step giving us confidence that the nightmare construction would be turned around. So glad we chose GI construction, our walk in shower turned out beautifully! Long story short, don’t cheap out, go with a professional! My husband and I would use GI construction again. We love our new shower! Services performed: shower remodel

We really wanted to have our master bathroom reconfigured to accommodate a nice walk-in shower and have an old jetted tub removed. After contacting several companies with little to undesirable responses we contacted GI Construction. Isaac responded to our house the very next day and observed what we envisioned. He was vey knowledgeable and forthright in his assessment of our project. We contracted with GI Construction and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. Valentin and Roberto came to the house to establish a plan for construction and a timeline. Roberto was a true craftsman and insured every aspect of our construction was done with strict precision. The walk-in shower and associated construction was done in a timely manner and with ultimate concern for our pleasure and acceptance. If you are looking for a "professional contractor" to do your construction project look no further than GI Construction - you won't be disappointed. We would highly recommend them for any project you may encounter. Thank You GI Construction for providing us with a beautiful and functional master bath !!

Would highly recommend for their services. ** Thank you Isaac & Valentin for making our bathrooms look amazing!**

After searching and obtaining many bids from different construction companies, Isaac with GI Construction provided us with a low cost, complete and solid option that did not hide or leave open any unknown fees. There methods of a simple TI were perfect for our needs as well as saving us thousands on unneeded expenses. I'd personally recommend GI for any project small or big.

My project manager Valentin was so helpful and very responsive with any issues. Foreman Jorge went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with all the finish work and he and his crew stayed late on a Friday to finish the job. They even moved my very large headboard back in from the garage. All workers were professional and polite. I would definitely recommend this company and will be using in the future.

We worked with Isaac, the owner and Valentin, the project manager and their amazing crew. We couldn't be happier with the end project! We had a water leak from an upstairs tenant so the whole bathroom had to be redone and a wall in the bedroom on the other side plus we had some plumbing and wiring done as well. I would love to leave a picture but couldn't see where to add it.
