How to Remodel Bathroom Shower
Decide on a Design
Before you take action or do any remodeling, it’s best to visualize what kind of design that you are interested in. There are various approaches to a bathroom makeover, but before starting, let’s visualize. The first thing to consider is the color scheme. The most popular colors are blue, light shades of gray, or anything light in color. Then you can think about remodeling your shower tub, installing a sink, and replacing anything old. You can also add in the storage space where you can keep your towels and toiletries. Another thing to keep in mind is to know where all the electrical wiring and plumbing pipes are located.
Gather Your Tools
Here are the tools that you should gather: goggles, mask, gloves, hammer, tape measure, knife, power drill, bucket, chisel, ranch, screwdriver, chalk line, extension cord, and saw.
Remove Bathroom Mixture
The first thing to do is to demolish the bathroom. The next thing is to drain and remove the toilet to prevent spills. Then cover the bathtub and remove the tiles. After that, remove the insulation from your walls. You can use a saw to cut the panels. Make sure to wear a mask, goggle, or club. Finally, remove the mirror, floor tiles, cabinet, and vanities.
Installing Shower and Tub
After demolishing your bathroom, you can start installing the shower or tub. There are three shapes that you can choose from, pentacle, square, and rectangle. Based on what you choose, it will determine your layout. You could also install a shower and bathtub combo. Make sure to replace any rotting wood or water damage that have with occurred in your flooring.
Once you install your tub and shower, you can start with the cabinets. Make sure to get the proper dimensions that you need for your bathroom renovation projects.
New Floor Tiles

Drywall and Painting
