Having your dream bathroom can be a real game changer. Imagine coming home after a long day of work, only to spend an hour in your spacious tub that is in your oasis-like bathroom. It’s no surprise that so many homeowners are investing in bath remodels these days considering how essential bathrooms are for us all. If you’re on the path to your own dream bath remodel, try out these three tips to try to get what you really want.
Begin by Budgeting
How much are you looking to spend? It’s a tough question to answer upfront, but putting in these boundaries early on makes remodeling much easier to navigate. If you set up a price limit, you can cut down on options that you don’t really need right from the start, including something like a jacuzzi tub. Budgeting has a big impact on the types of materials you’re able to use, so determining your budget—either by yourself or with the help of a contractor—can really help swing which way your remodeling project goes.
Refinishing Instead of Replacing
Instead of outright replacing some of your bath elements like your tub, shower, sink, or even tile, consider just refinishing them. This can end up costing a fraction of what it would otherwise cost, sometimes as little as 10% of full on replacement. Additionally, this can mean that you don’t have to tear your bathroom up for as long, which might be appealing to busy families who don’t really have the time to commit to a full-on remodel.
Keep Plumbing Where It Is
One of the biggest costs when it comes to bathroom remodeling is dealing with plumbing. If you want to rearrange your toilet and shower, for example, all of those pipes need to be moved in a costly process. If possible, try keeping plumbing elements where they all. You can upgrade your bath or shower without having to redo all of the pipes but if you plan to move elements around, the costs are going to start adding up pretty quickly.
