Crystal did a good starter list for you.

Depending on how detailed you want to get, you can google this search phrase and find a bunch - remodel checklist - the Images of remodel checklist also has an endless supply of actual checklists you can use to create your own.

Five other things that came to mind looking at Crystal's list -

1) run water in all remodeled sinks and basins for at least 5 minutes to be sure there is no backup anywhere or leaks from the sink/pipe connection, as well as for leaking pipes or backup in lower level/floor drains.

2) Test any push-button GFCI/AFCI breakers, either in the circuit breaker box or in circuit outlets.

3) And get a $10 plug-in LED circuit tester like this (at any lumber yard, home improvement store, hardware store) -

and use it to check each new outlet for correct wiring polarity and connections. Good for future checks if you have an outlet orplug strip fail too.

4) Make sure you have the purchase invoices, warranty forms, etc for any future warranty claims, including any required contractor signoffs or signature regarding installation date.

5) Lien releases from all vendors, subs, and contractor.
