Renovating: bathrooms, part 1

Source: http://superseventies.tumblr.com

Installing a new bathroom or kitchen is a major project.  Trust me.  The MoH did a big reno in her last home, including two bathrooms, the kitchen, and the laundry.  And a various other times, built-in wardrobes, new carpet, and a new paint job.  The bathrooms were by far the most complex, the quality most variable, and the tradespeople the most difficult to communicate with.

I’ll share my experiences in a case study later on.  But in the meantime, my first piece of advice is not to renovate unless you absolutely need to!  You’ll save a lot of potential heartache and a lot of money to boot.
