Steps to Planning
Have you decided to do some renovating and updating? The next step is to plan, plan, plan! The better your planning, the better your result. Don’t rush through this part of the process. You can’t plan for everything, but you can prepare in ways that will help you deal with whatever might come up. At Expressions Plumbing Design, we are here to help!
Determine Your Budget
What are you able or willing to spend on your renovation? Write it down and stick to it. There are so many options out there that it’s easy to get carried away once the project is in progress.
Check out Pinterest or Houzz and create a collection of all the bathroom or kitchen designs and features that you like. Collect inspiration for your vanity, fixtures, finishes, lighting, counter tops, hardware, and faucets. Once you have collected a number of images you’ll usually start to see a trend emerge. Pick out all the images that don’t fit with this trend, or your needs, and you’ll have a good starting point for the look and feel of your new bathroom. This step will also get you well acquainted with all of the amazing fixture options out there.
Here are some measurements that will be required at the time of your Expressions appointment:
Vanity cabinet size or space (depth & width)
Tub and/or shower space (depth & width)
Tub and/or drain location (left, right, or center)
Kitchen sink cabinet size or space (depth & width)
Counter top thickness
Faucet spread needed
Make a Checklist
Now that you have a budget and measurements to work within you should have a good idea of what you require. Make a list of all the items needed or wanted. Our Showroom Project Planner is a great start!
Start Talking to Contractors/Plumbers if You Aren’t Going to DIY
You should now have a pretty good idea of the scope of your project and this will make it easier for your contractor or plumber to price the job for you. Show them your plan and fixture ideas so that if there is anything problematic they can bring it to your attention now and you can address it before the renovation begins.
Make an Appointment
You should now have all the necessary information to make your first appointment with us a productive and successful one. There are several ways to make an appointment at Expressions Plumbing Design Showroom:

Once You’ve Decided on Your Contractor/Plumber and Have a Date Set for the Project to Begin, Start Purchasing Your Fixtures and Faucets.
Most items, unless they are in stock, will take between 2 to 6 weeks to arrive. You don’t want anything to hold up your project once you begin and by having all the pieces readily available you will limit the amount of time your house is turned into a construction zone.
