Now that you finally have a chance to upgrade your outdated bathroom that you were avoiding, it is easy to skip the planning phase. The bathrooms in most homes get the most traffic, so it may seem easier to get in and get the job done as quickly as possible.
However, in order to get the most out of your bathroom renovation project, you should stop and take the time to plan it out properly. Break down each aspect of your project and make an action plan before you start any work. The experts here at Joseph Kitchen and Bath often run into the same concerns with every bathroom job, which tends to be budget-related.
If you are looking to stay within your budget while still upgrading your bathroom luxuriously, we have some advice for you. These four essential tips will help you plan your basics before you even get started.
Minimal or Simple Isn’t Always Affordable
It may seem like a modern, sleek or minimalist look would help you save money, but that may not always be the case. Many industrial styles or ultra-modern designs have a hefty price tag. You can still get the same look for less with intricate planning. Though in general, the cost of an architect, customized fixtures, and color-matched tiles will cause you to dig deep into your savings.
Think about the WOW Factor
When remodeling on a budget, you may not have the funds to get all of the small details you want for your bathroom. Furnishing your bathroom with budget-friendly designs doesn’t have to be boring. Instead of trying to make every feature stand out, designate one area and play it up to the max. If you want to focus on the shower, use exotic tiles and a fancy shower head. If you would rather focus on the sink, consider a vessel style sink with a customized mirror.
Professional Tile Work
If you are looking for ways to save money, then performing some of the bathroom work yourself can be appealing. While some parts of your project can be completed by the homeowner, tiling is not one of them. Changing bathroom tiles is the most labor-intensive part of the project, which means it is also one of the most costly. Tiles need a professional touch in order to be installed correctly, sealed, and made to last. Nothing is worse than spending time and money to do it yourself, only to have a professional fix your mistakes at a higher cost.
Mind the Time
Remodeling projects take time, especially if you want them done right. Instead of rushing through the project, plan each stage with a realistic time for completion in mind. A well-done bathroom remodeling project on a moderate size space can take a month from start to finish. Make sure to keep that in mind ahead of time to ensure your quality expectation is met.
