How to Survive a Renovation with One Bathroom

Learn tips to minimize stress when your only bathroom is under construction.

Where will everyone go to the bathroom? This becomes an important question when your family’s one and only bath is out of commission. After all, Mother Nature’s call stops for no one and nothing – not even a luxurious spa-like design.

If you’re eager to give your hardworking bath a brand-new look but worried about the disruption, here are a few ideas for how to survive a bathroom remodel.

Mentally Prepare Yourself

Remodeling takes time and gets messy. There will be dust, noise, and extra foot traffic in your home. There’s nothing you can do but be prepared. An extensive remodel or renovation is a big inconvenience that has an even bigger payoff. Focus on your end goal: a beautiful bath your family will love.

Hire Professional Help

If you want to remodel your bath on a budget, working with a design/build firm may seem like a pricey move, but it’s money well-spent. Professionals can help you work out a step-by-step plan to reach your goal ensuring your design, budget, and timeline are realistic. And since you're taking your only bathroom out of commission, you'll want to start and finish as fast as possible.

Decide “Where Will We Go?”

Households with a single bathroom under construction will need to make provision for their family’s basic needs. Here are some ideas to consider:

  • Set up a temporary toilet and shower
  • Ask a neighbor to use their facilities
  • Stay with friends or family or at a hotel
  • Rent or buy an RV
  • Take a vacation

Have Fun with It

In conclusion, plan ahead and enlist expert help to keep minor hassles from turning into major headaches during your family’s bathroom renovation. Embrace the remodeling process and take plenty of before and work-in-progress photos. Remind yourself that the inconvenience is temporary and keep your eye on the exciting prize – your dream bathroom.
