The average bathroom remodel can cost anywhere between $15,000 and $25,000. With that cost, it is important to ensure you get the best value for the price and your money is put to good use. It can be a challenge to allocate your funds between choosing materials, selecting a design, and hiring the right professionals. A lack of planning can result in unexpected costs.
Here are 3 remodeling mistakes for you to stay away from and keep you on budget and still let you have the bathroom of your dreams:
1. Moving Bathroom Fixtures
When you choose to move the sink, bathtub, or toilet from its original location, you immediately increase the cost of the renovation due to the cost of new plumbing. You should decide if you want to move a fixture out of true necessity or just a desire. Checking online sources for bathroom remodels can give you an idea once you find something similar to the layout of your bathroom.
2. Lack of a Remodeling Plan
To make sure your vision is properly executed, it is important to have a detailed plan of how you would like your new bathroom to look. If you are doing major renovation that would require the moving of fixtures or walls, it is recommended you hire a designer to give you some ideas of the work it will take to complete your remodel.
3. Putting Beauty and Style above Functionality
With the exciting task of designing your new bathroom, it is very easy to get carried away with the details and forget about the functionality. The most important thing for a bathroom is that it is comfortable and easy to use. It would be no good if the bathroom looked amazing, but still had a poor layout.
