One Of The Easiest Parts Of Remodeling A Bathroom Is Picking Out A Bathroom Cabinet

It would seem that one of the easiest parts of remodeling a bathroom is picking out a bathroom cabinet. A person usually has a general idea of how much space they have, and how much storage they may want in a cabinet. However, I have learned that hard way that there might just be more to this than choosing the right size and the right look. I had what I thought was a great cabinet, but I found that I could have made a better choice for my family.

I don’t like my daughter to be in our bathroom cabinet, but that doesn’t mean she won’t be. The one we have is not made for little hands, and she always has a hard time opening it. She always manages to hurt her fingers. As she gets older, she has more reason to be in the bathroom cabinet, but she still can’t open them without hurting her little hands. If you have children like I do, you want something a bit more child-friendly so they can learn to open them safely.

I also learned that you want to spend money on a bathroom cabinet that you could easily fix or get replacement parts for. Our daughter opened one of the doors on ours too far, and the mirror cracked in the corner. In other cases, we might have been able to get a replacement, but that is not the case with this particular bathroom cabinet. My husband has to find a way to remove the mirror and replace it without destroying the rest of it. This could be interesting. read more

How Much Detail Does Your Contractor Need?

When providing your contractor with your plans and ideas just how much information is required before it becomes “too much information”?

Common sense tells us that the more detail we provide then the more we lower the risk of the contractor getting it wrong or rather not as we wanted it.

Where many self builders go wrong – and by self builders I mean managing your own project – is to fill the plans with much of the detail that should be provided in the specifications rather than the blueprints.

For example a door shown on a plan should include exactly where the opening goes, how big it is and which way the door will open. The specification sheet should include the style of door, type of wood, furniture, hinges, length of screws for fixing etc.

Your plans should convey the visual effect of what you want so the trained eye can look them over and see the completed job in his mind.

A good set of plans will include floor plan, elevations and sections if required. All drawings will be to scale and include dimensions. They will also include details of certain parts of the work that can’t be seen fully from the plans. The ‘details’ will usually be a zoom in of a certain area. For instance showing how a lintel is to be fitted over a patio door etc. read more
