Bathroom Remodel Cost – Considerations for Homeowners
Are you planning a bathroom remodel? Are you thinking of renovating your current bathroom and changing the look of your home to match your style? If you are then you may want to consider improving shower and tub functionality and adding new luxury features that will provide added value and enjoyment to your home. According to the most recent cost versus value survey done by The Modern Kitchen, a bath and shower remodel will be much less expensive than a new kitchen and flooring remodel.
Even with an expected lower cost for the average home improvement project in the future, a bathroom remodel today is still a big investment for homeowners. Bathroom remodeling may include a new tub or shower, upgrading fixtures such as faucets, toilets, showers, tubs, and other shower and/or bath accessories, replacing worn and outdated hardware, and/or completely changing the interior decor. Bathroom and shower remodeling projects may also include adding custom cabinetry and/or hand painted doors.
With a little planning, a bathroom renovation should not be too costly. In fact, a simple bathroom remodel, by improving the basic features and replacing worn out fixtures, can save you money. By properly planning and estimating your expenses, you can cut your overall costs for a major home improvement project. By using a bathroom and home survey checklist to help with your planning, you will know exactly what is included in your estimate, the costs, and any savings opportunities that exist by combining upgrades or replacing outdated items.
When you are planning a bathroom remodel, you will want to carefully consider the options that are available before you make any decisions. One of these options is replacing your shower head. If replacing your shower head is a top priority, then you should take the time to do your research and evaluate all your options before making any decisions. There are a number of factors that need to be considered before choosing a shower head. A simple home survey checklist can help you with your decision making process.
Another option that is often overlooked, when considering updating your bathroom is the addition of a new light fixture. Many bathrooms have outdated lighting, which can make the room appear smaller. Replacing your existing shower with a modern, stylish fixture can instantly add charm and personality to a bathroom. Adding a mid-range light fixture to a room can also add value to your home should you choose to put it on the market. A home survey checklist can help you with this decision.
Other major upgrades that may be necessary for a bathroom remodel cost less than replacing parts of the bathroom. This includes the addition of new hardware, flooring, or painting a wall. When replacing any hardware, whether it is with a new sink or faucet, you should keep the same bathroom remodeling budget in mind. However, if you would like to change the color of a wall or add new carpeting, it is important to remember that these changes will impact the bathroom remodeling budget. Therefore, you should be sure to not only add new features, but also keep the same budget in mind.
