Planning Your Bathroom Remodel Budget – Home Improvement Ideas
Upgrading your bathroom can be a fun and rewarding experience. Bathroom remodeling adds a ton of value to your home. And even better than that, nothing is more relaxing than stepping into your beautiful and refreshing new bathroom. However, this is an area where expenses can get out of control. Here are some tips to have a great looking bathroom, while keeping within your budget.
Tips for planning your bathroom remodel project
1. The first step is to decide how much you have to spend. You can do some market research to figure out how much the average price of certain upgrades will be to help guide you.
2. Every home improvement project seems to have a similar theme, there are always unexpected problems that crop up. If you plan for this by budgeting 20% of your overall price to go towards the unexpected, you won’t be caught unaware and over budget.
3. Tile can get very expensive. Rather than do an entire wall in tile you can use tile strategically by creating an accent. One strip of tile on a painted wall can provide an updated and beautiful look, without a big cost.
4. A benefit of the smaller size of bathroom countertops is that you can get more expensive material, like granite, at a lower price since its such a small space. Different colors of granite have different prices, you can look for the colors that are the most cost-effective. Also, some slabs are built with imperfections that cost less, but still look beautiful and are hardly noticed in the bathroom.
5. Don’t forget to update light fixtures, sink faucets, and drawer pulls. These are an inexpensive way to refresh your overall look.
6. You can save money in the long run by choosing low-flow sinks, showers, and toilets. The products don’t usually cost any more than the traditional ones but will save you money on your water bill.
7. Don’t overlook the transformative powers of a fresh coat of paint. It can brighten up any space. And fresh caulk and tile grout can do wonders for making your bathroom look sparkling and new.
