6 Tools To Speed Up Your Bathroom Renovations
Last updated on October 21st, 2021
You want to renovate your bathroom, but you don’t know where to start. You’ve got a lot of choices, and the decision process is overwhelming! What if we told you about 6 tools that can help speed up this project? This post will list and describe these tools and give examples of how they work. Thus, you can make an informed decision about which ones are best for your project.
Keep a detailed to-do list. Before you get started, make sure that you have everything on hand before starting your renovations. It helps if you write everything from small things like screws and nails up to bigger fixtures such as toilets or bathtubs.
Doing this will help speed up the process by keeping track of what was purchased for specific tasks instead of wandering around trying not to forget anything later in the day when it’s time to start work again.
Adjustable Wrench and Plug Cutters
Use an adjustable wrench rather than pliers. Adjustable wrenches are made with fitting nuts and bolts in mind. Pliers grip objects rather than loosen or tighten them. This means that they’ll likely slip and strip the nut/bolt you’re trying to work with.
You can use a plug cutter to cut holes for your sink and faucet. They’re designed for the job, so they work like a charm!
If you’re planning on putting in new tile or vessel sinks, this tool will help make sure everything is level and fits together perfectly. It also works well with cutting through porcelain tiles without breaking them (which makes it much easier).
Straight Tile Cutter
Tile cutters allow their user to make accurate cuts whenever cutting tiles down into smaller pieces. These machines use water jets instead of blades which keep the surface area cool while working, so there’s no risk of burning yourself. They also ensure straight cuts, so you won’t have to worry about small tile pieces sticking out.
Also, this tool works like a dream when you’re working with odd-sized tiles or materials that are difficult to measure using traditional tools. It gives you an accurate measurement every time, so there’s no more cutting off too much or not enough tile for your project!
Reversible Wet Saw
This saw looks like one of those boards you might find at a bowling alley that’s used for scoring. The difference here is that instead of using pins to mark where each player stands. It has little teeth that allow the blade to cut through the surface of your material. The blade is also reversible and can be used in either direction, making it super easy to use!
When renovating your home, it’s always essential that you wear protective equipment such as gloves and eye protection. Prepare two kinds of gloves, one for renovation work like a pair of thick cut-resistant gloves and another for cleaning such as chemical-resistant nitrile gloves. There are many types of safety glasses, depending on what sort of job is being done. Thus, be sure to look at all the options available before deciding!
For example, if working with power tools, safety goggles might be recommended over regular sunglasses while also keeping dust out of your eyes. Also, consider whether they will fit properly (ex: can they rest comfortably without falling off?). There are unique lensed masks that allow their users’ full sight range but still provide adequate face protection if you have prescription lenses.
Grout pumps are manual grouting tools that allow you to apply grout quickly and efficiently. Fill the Grout pump with water, attach it to your drill, then squeeze as needed while drilling into each joint of tile.
Besides, it is a fantastic way to speed up your bathroom renovations. Grouting the tiles is time-consuming—it takes hours, and you have to do this for every tile, which can frustrate you if there are many in one room! Grout Pumps work by pushing and pumping grout into joints between tiles from behind with minimal mess.
Suppose you’re planning on making some changes in your bathroom but don’t know where to start. These tools will help speed things along while giving you significant results every time! And since they all work together seamlessly, once one job has been completed, you can move on to the next with little hassle.
Also, having the right tools can speed up your renovation time while reducing frustrations and making it easier to complete tasks. It’s a good idea to take some time before starting a project and do thorough research on what you might need to get started! Many hardware stores have great deals, so keep an eye out for coupons or other discounts which could save you money!
