A bathroom renovation isn't about going out and buying a bunch of new fixtures. The key to a successful remodeling experience is the amount of planning you do before you even start shopping.

You should identify goals and priorities, with the help of a completed Day in the Life of Your Bathroom Questionnaire and Bathroom Goals Worksheet.
