Remodeling a bathroom is sometimes done in conjunction with a bigger renovation project, such as a kitchen remodel, leaving the bathroom to receive less attention and a smaller portion of the remodeling budget. However, cutting corners on your bathroom budget can lead to problems in the future. Our experts explain how to budget better when remodeling a bathroom.
Hire Remodeling Professionals
Many enterprising homeowners try to save money by attempting a DIY approach to a bathroom remodel. This often leads to a lackluster job and, at worst, a costly failure. All things considered, the total bathroom remodel cost becomes much bigger when you have to add in expenses from having a contractor come in and redo what you have begun. Alternatively, choosing the lowest estimate from subpar contractors can also cost you more in the long run. Always choose a reputable and trustworthy company to handle this important job and give you real value for the money.
Budget for the Basics
First, think about which parts of your bathroom you use every day. The toilet, the sink, the shower and the tub are the Big Four when it comes to bathroom remodeling, so these are the items you want to put most of your budget into. You’ll thank yourself later for not skimping on these essentials.
Luxuries Come Last
Once you’ve ironed out the basics of your bathroom renovation with your contractor, any additional room in your budget can be used for some extra amenities. Small upgrades that make a big difference are your priority here, such as a multi-function showerhead, a glass shower door and upgraded light fixutres.
