Remodeling a bathroom is much different than remodeling a kitchen in many respects. First the space is usually much smaller than a kitchen. This presents a number of challenges. The tear out can be a lot more difficult. Imagine removing a large fiberglass tub/shower unit. It won’t fit through the door or window. Many tubs present the same problem and the installer must resort to cutting things into smaller pieces for removal. In fact, all of the debris removed must be taken away by hand in small pieces or in 5 gallon buckets. This slows down the work and adds to the final cost.
This smaller space also has an impact on the new products you will select for your remodeled bathroom. Again, they must fit through the existing door or window. New construction can avoid this issue if the products are moved into place before the walls are finished, but a remodel doesn’t have that convenience.
Another restriction caused by the confined space is not being able to have different trades working at the same time. Your carpenter, plumber, electrician, flooring installer, and countertop installer cannot possibly work at the same time – there just isn’t enough room. Each trade will have to be scheduled into the space individually and be coordinated with each other. For example, the plumber and electrician need to perform some of their work while the walls are still open. Then they must return at a later time to install the sink, toilet, or lighting fixtures. There just is no “wiggle room” and each needs the small space entirely to themselves to complete their particular work.
