Is your bathroom outdated and nonfunctional? Careful planning and working with a professional will help you achieve a successful remodel. First you should evaluate your budget because there is a lot going on in a small space. Then set goals and evaluate the needs of your family. Concentrate on style and function and decide the quality of the materials that will reflect that. An average bathroom remodel averages $7,000 according to the Houzz bathroom trends study. But it can vary from $3,000 for basic remodel to $100,000 for a deluxe remodel. You should plan on a cushion of 10-20 percent. If you don’t need to move plumbing or wiring that will be big savings.
Why you are remodeling: simply updating, freshening up for resale or for trying to gain more functionality and storage. Refine your ideas you have by creating an idea book with bathroom layouts and looks that you like. Keep your bathroom style similar to the style of the rest of your house. Seek advice from professionals such as designers, architects and contractors depending on the extent of work to be done. Once you have a design that includes square footage you can shop for materials.
A bathroom remodel should take 30-90 days, try to resist changing plans as this could delay the project and cost even more. A bathroom remodel will increase the resale value of your home in approximately five years, so if you are planning to sell make sure your remodel is timeless and not trendy.
