If you’ve been following our Potty Like a Rockstar series, you know that we’ve been highlighting reasons to rent luxury restroom trailers. In this edition we’re talking about bathroom remodels.
It might surprise you to learn that the winter is a great time to remodel a bathroom. Tradespeople are typically less busy during the holidays, which means that you can often complete the project faster and for less than you would at other times during the year. While you shouldn’t simply look for the lowest quote possible to do the job, contractors, electricians, and plumbers will sometimes work with you more on labor rates when they have excess capacity. Additionally, since you already have time off around the holidays, you may be able to put in some sweat equity to reduce costs. Determining which improvements you can do yourself is a great way to save money on the remodel. If your work schedule permits, you may even be able to act as the GC (general contractor) yourself to save even more. Either way, being around for part or all of the project and pitching in will make you feel more connected to the end result, like you’ve done something you can be proud of.
Since family and friends usually exchange gifts for the holidays, you can put practical items on your wish list to tie your remodel in with the holidays. Why get gifts you don’t want or need when you can ask for fixtures, flooring, decorations, or other bathroom must-haves instead?
However, if you’re going to undergo a remodel, you’ll need to plan for a backup bathroom for your family regardless of the time of the year. Any temporary bathroom you get better be climate controlled during the winter or you’ll end up with a very grumpy family! A luxury portable restroom fits the bill by offering toilets, sinks, and showers to give your family the same amenities as home with a nice, warm interior. The inside is also aesthetically appealing, providing a cozy and familiar feel for family members. Our master bathroom trailer looks great from the outside as well, which means your neighbors won’t mind seeing it for the duration of the remodel.
