Renovating a bathroom or kitchen can be very costly if you do not plan and do it right. Before you can install a single item you must first completely gut it out. This sounds easy but you must be careful to do it right and safe.
Before commencing work, make sure you have identified all the work involved and that you have all the necessary tools available. This will be a very noisy and dusty job so make sure you have all your personal protective equipment handy such as ear plugs, gloves, safety goggles, respirators (breathing mask), safety shoes etc. You should also have the electrical and plumbing services isolated and capped by using licensed contractors.
Once you have made the room safe you can begin with the removal of all fixtures and fittings. Remove the toilet, vanity, shower, bath and anything else you can disconnect and remove. Next would be to begin removing all the tiles off the walls by jack hammering them off carefully and not creating unnecessary holes in the walls or damaging pipes and cables. Once all wall tiles are removed you can begin with the removal of the floor tiles. Make sure you are regularly clearing out the rubbish to create a clean and safe work space for yourself. Safety is always paramount, you do not want to be tripping over and harming yourself. You could hire a skip bin or small tipper to take care of all the waste.
Roughing in plumbing and electrical wiring
If you are relocating the toilet or floor wastes then you may need to core drill new holes. Also, if you are relocating the vanity and shower you may have to chase the walls and rough in the plumbing/electrical cables.
Give the room a final clean and now you are ready to begin installing the bathroom/kitchen.
