If you are looking to remodel a bathroom, now is a great time to get started. The weather is cool, and your home may be due for a spring refresh. But if you are planning on remodeling, the first thing you need to do is pin down a budget. Bathroom remodels can vary widely in price, so completing this is no easy task. Here are a few of the things to consider when estimating the cost of a bathroom remodeling project.
Look at the Simple Facts
Before you even begin a remodeling project, you must first decide if you have the money to invest in a renovation. As you look to remodel a bathroom, keep in mind that the average bathroom remodeling project price can range from $5,000 to $15,000. Take a look at your budget and decide if you have this kind of money to invest in your bathroom at this time, or whether you need to continue budgeting and saving to move forward.
Consider Your Remodeling Needs
Next, consider your remodeling needs. If you are looking to expand a bathroom or change the design of the fixture alignment in the bathroom, your budget will be higher than someone who is looking to paint the walls, refurbish an existing vanity and maybe swap out a fixture or two. Consider what you are hoping to accomplish with the project to determine if it will be on the cheaper or more expensive scale.
Price Out Materials
The materials you select when completing a bathroom remodeling project have a huge effect on the price of your project. Take some time to visit a material store and see how much the countertops, cabinets, flooring, and shower or bathtub surround tiles you like cost. This will give you an idea as to whether you can afford a bathroom remodel with the materials you like or whether you need to save some more money before moving forward.
Get a Quote
Lastly, take time to get quotes from different contractors to get as close as possible to the true number of your bathroom remodeling project. It is important to note that estimates are not binding, but this will give you a good idea as to what it will cost to complete the work in your bathroom that is needed to transform it.
