Planning for a bathroom remodel can be tough when you don’t have a lot of room in the budget. It’s now or never for your remodeling plans, but you’re not sure if you can swing the tens of thousands of dollars that usually go with the job. If you know you want to remodel soon, but you’re not sure how you’re going to swing the costs, we have a little advice that may help you stay on budget and make sure that you don’t start a job you cannot afford to finish.
Don’t Skimp on Labor Costs
Budgeting for a bathroom remodel is all about compromise, but one area that deserves your full attention is your contracting company. Choosing a quality company is key. If a quote sounds too good to be true, there’s probably a reason. You don’t want to choose a contractor who will skip out on purchasing quality materials and following local codes, only to find that your new bathroom does not live up to your expectations.
Cut Back on the Extra Frills
Make a list of priorities and cut out the things you don’t need. For now, it’s okay to leave out that towel warmer or even that built-in cabinet. These are things you can add in later, and the most important thing is to ensure that your bathroom is laid out as you want it with all of the major plumbing fixtures in place.
Have a Cushion
Budgeting for a bathroom remodel is tough in part because, often, things come up that you simply cannot control. Make sure that you give yourself some room in the budget in case it turns out an old plumbing pipe needs replacement, or that there isn’t enough room for that shower you wanted, calling for additional planning.
