Bathroom remodels are a fun project to do. Changes being made in general, no matter if they are small or extravagant, are exciting to do. The main problem is that you will have a bathroom out of commission for a little while. If you do not have two full baths in your home, that poses a significant inconvenience for you.
There are many ways that you can go about surviving during a bathroom remodel. They may not all be convenient, but they will get you from the beginning to the end of the process. But, the most important part of all is that you are prepared and make a plan before the renovations begin.
Talk With Your Neighbors
Your neighbors will become even closer friends when you are remodeling your bathroom. Talk with them before you begin the renovating process and ask if it is okay for you to use their bathroom from time to time. That way, you can run next door to brush your teeth, use the bathroom, or even take a shower.
Most of the time, your neighbors will not care at all to be of help to you. That is being as you were friends before the renovations began. If you are new to the area, this is one way to get to know everyone.
Plan The Toilet Work Strategically
That may sound very strange to say, but if you only have one toilet in your home, then you don’t want to be without one for long. Do as much work as possible before you do anything to the toilet; that way, you are not inconvenienced with that until you have to be. There are a few ways that you can go about this situation if it is going to be an extended amount of time without it, such as:
- Stay In A Hotel During That Time
- Rent A Porta Potty For Your Backyard
You Can Use Your Gym Membership
If you have a gym membership, you can visit the gym each morning or evening for a shower. Of course, that is only convenient for taking a shower or brushing your teeth. You cannot rely on that for toilet use.
This is the perfect opportunity to get back on track if you have been slacking on the workouts lately. You will probably enjoy the time away from the chaos of renovations. Get in a good workout and take a shower at the gym while you are there.
Take Advantage Of Public Bathrooms
It can be a real pain to use a bathroom that is in the midst of a renovation. Whether or not the appliances are working, it is still an obstacle course. When you are at the store getting supplies, try and use the bathroom there. If you are grocery shopping or stopping at a gas station, take advantage of the bathroom there. This will make it where you are using your one under construction less.
