Whether you’ve decided to finish your basement’s bathroom or are looking for a refreshing master-bath upgrade, a professional remodel can provide you and your family years of added comfort to your home. Here are a few tips to alleviate any extra planning stress and ensure your next bathroom remodel is a success:
Be mindful of your budget – Absence of a budget is a simple mistake homeowners make when choosing to remodel. If you’re like most of us and don’t have unlimited funds for a bathroom upgrade, the easiest way to save money is to work with the already established bathroom layout.
Prepare for unpredicted costs – As much as we hate to be the bearers of bad news, a lot can be found when remodeling your home. When walls open up, and pipes are exposed, you may find leaks or problems you were previously unaware of. Understanding the possibility of this scenario will prepare you (and your budget) for any inconvenient setbacks.
Select efficient fixtures – Paying attention to details and carefully selecting water-efficient options is an excellent tactic for saving money down the road. Seemingly endless possibilities are available for bathroom essentials, including water-efficient sinks, toilets, and showerheads.
Cut corners on essentials – Areas where spending a little extra money may be beneficial in the long run include the things in your bathroom that get the most use: Handles, faucets, and fixtures.
Follow Trends – While it may be tempting to follow the latest design trends when drawing up your bathroom vision board, remember that fads come and go. The most important thing is that you’re happy with the finished product, no matter which tile pattern is trending.
Rush – High-quality, professional remodeling shouldn’t be rushed. Your bathroom is one of the most-used rooms in your house, so making sure your remodeling project is completed carefully and correctly is essential! Otherwise, you may face even more time-consuming plumbing problems in years to come.
