Project Planning & Design for Condo Bathroom Remodeling

Step 1: Planning and Design

  1. Determine Your Needs and Wants: List out what you don’t like about your current bathroom and flooring. Consider aspects like space, functionality, and aesthetics.
  2. Set a Budget: Factor in costs for demolition, materials, labor, and a contingency for unexpected expenses.
  3. Design Your Space: Consult with a designer or use online tools to visualize the new bathroom and flooring. Consider materials, colors, and layouts that complement your condo’s overall style. Our designers and flooring experts can help you with creating the right feel for your space.
  4. Select Materials: Choose materials that are durable, fit your budget, and match your aesthetic desires. For bathrooms, consider moisture-resistant options.

Step 2: Hiring Professionals

  1. Research and Hire Contractors: Look for a reputable company that specializes in demolition, ordering materials, and installation services. Ensure they have experience with condos specifically. At Renovation Flooring, we offer demolition and installation in addition to the extensive line of flooring, tile, stone, mosaic and other wall coverings.
  2. Verify Licenses and Insurances: Ensure the contractor is licensed to work in your area and has liability insurance to cover any damages or injuries during the project.

Step 3: Preparing for Demolition and Installation

  1. Secure Permits: Most condos will require permits for remodeling, especially for significant changes to plumbing or electrical systems. Your contractor should handle this, but ensure you’re aware of all requirements.
  2. Prep the Space: Clear out personal items, fixtures, and anything that could be damaged during the demolition. This includes removing appliances, toilets, and existing flooring as needed.
  3. Coordinate with Condo Management: Inform your building’s management of your remodeling plans, especially since demolition and construction can affect neighboring units.
