Television networks such as HGTV have become very popular over the course of the last few years and with good reason. Not only do they do a very good job providing programming for those interested in doing work to their home, they also have shows showcasing the pitfalls of any project, namely that of bathroom remodeling.
While it can sometimes be a little entertaining to watch someone’s bathroom remodeling plans fall apart based on poor planning or maybe just an immature dislike of someone’s personality, it is important to glean some amount of caution when it comes to your own project. Bathroom remodeling is no joke, and it pays to really have a good reason to decide to go through with the plan.
But for all of the good information that comes from HGTV, it shouldn’t be the one place from which you & your family take pointers. You need to do some research and really dig into the planning of your perspective project.
For example, much of the information you’ll find on HGTV’s programming tends to start with the “vision”. Hosts want couples & families to think big-picture first so as to know what things would be on a homeowner’s dream wishlist. That sounds great, but it tends to cause a bit of a downer when bringing in reality soon afterward. It may be best to think in terms of what you need in your bathroom remodeling project rather than what you want. It allows for you to really think about what your new bathroom will offer rather than how it will dazzle.
