Between finding good bathtub installation contractors or shower replacement professionals, and deciding which new features you want to include in your project, it’s surprisingly easy to go over your bathroom remodeling budget. The prospect of upgrading their toilet and bath alone often gets homeowners too excited and, before they know it, they have gone over their projected costs with luxury items.
There’s nothing more frustrating than having to cut back on some of your dream features just to keep your bathroom remodeling within your budget. Luckily, our experts at LuxStone of Colorado recommends following these tips so you don’t get too carried away with adding things to your brand-new bathroom.
Start With a Clear Goal in Mind
Nobody knows your bathroom more than you do. Before you talk to your bathroom remodeling contractors, know what can and cannot fit inside your existing space. The larger the area you need to remodel, the more you’ll spend on your project. It’s best to approach this project with a pretty good vision of what you want the final product to look like. This may not be the way your remodel ends up, but a clear goal is a good starting point for any type of remodeling.
Base Your Budget on Your Home’s Value
Most experts agree that the total you want to spend on remodeling your bathroom should be proportional and appropriate to the current value of your home. They recommend setting your budget within 5 – 10% of your property value. This gives you a definite ceiling price and can provide your designs with direction.
When you have a list of objectives, arrange them in order of priority. For example, hire bathtub replacement contractors first if your primary goal is to do aging-in-place upgrades for your bathroom. If your current toilet is still in good condition with no issues, replacing it with a newer model should have a lower priority level.
