Bathroom Renovation and the Valuable Life Lessons It Brings

Renovation and remodeling projects may be a bit stressful, but they can also be a lot of fun. Those who have ever had home improvements done, such as adding a sunroom, installing high-quality solar panels, or remodeling a kitchen know what it's like to deal with not just the headaches but also the eager anticipation of the end result.

But there's one other aspect about remodeling projects that we found interesting. And this is the unexpected wisdom we gleaned from them, especially bathroom renovations.

Life Lesson #1: It's important to have a clear vision of what you want

Since bathrooms are more limited in space compared to all the other areas in your house, you need to have a clear picture of what you want it to look like. It's hard to start a remodeling project with no clear goal in mind.

Similarly, in life, you need to have a vision for yourself so you can plot out how to get there. Your vision will determine the steps that you will take. It will give you the motivation to keep showing up every day and make progress constantly.;

Life Lesson #2: Preparation and lead time make a whole world of difference

Another important thing you need to keep in mind if you want to renovate your bathroom is you need to have a plan before you make things happen. You need to make sure you have enough money for the project. If you're DIY-ing it, you have to have the right tools and equipment. If you're not prepared for it, chances are, you'll end up making things worse and prolonging the process.

Preparation is also a big deal in life. It is said that if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Have the foresight to anticipate potential problem areas and have contingency plans in case they happen. Foresight means your back-up plan has a back-up plan.

Life Lesson #3: Know your priorities

When installing a shower stall, some folks will compromise its size to give the bathroom a larger appearance. However, that few inches you choose to skimp on will spell the difference between a cramped shower space and something more comfortable. What good will a spacious-looking bathroom do if you can't even take a decent shower in it? When it comes to planning bathroom renovations, always prioritize function and not just appearances.

A lot of folks also tend to compromise plenty of things to make a good impression on people. Perhaps some of us even know a few who would spend hundreds of dollars on clothes and yet struggle to feed their families. Don't get your priorities mixed up.

Life Lesson #4: Don't be afraid to try things out to see what works for you

When painting bathrooms, sometimes you need to try out different types of paint first to see which one will work best with your concept. You may spend a bit more on some paint samples but seeing how they actually end up like will give you a clearer picture of what your bathroom would appear.

Life is also a series of trials-and-errors. Don't be afraid to try new things out. As the millennials say, YOLO. You only live once. It's okay to take some risks. Be a bit bolder. It's good to be cautious but being a little more adventurous can do you some good, too.

Life Lesson #5: Be flexible

Things won't always go as planned in any remodeling project. There will be some unexpected expenses along the way, even if you think you've already covered all the bases. If you want to see the result fast, you need to be flexible with your budget.

We're all too familiar about life not going well for us all the time. Our ability to be adaptable will determine how fast we progress in life.

Whatever we do in life, it's important to take a step back and see the bigger picture, so we don't miss out on the important lessons that life is teaching us. There's a lot that life wants to tell us. We just need to be more sensitive to its voice.
