The average bathroom remodeling project cost in 2014 was $17,735, according to National Kitchen and Bath Association with about 20 percent of that being labor cost. This is of course an average cost and there are several ways to avoid spending that much. Most homeowners attempt to spend between $ 5,000 and $10,000 which, for a bathroom remodel, is still a costly venture.
Determining your budget could be difficult when planning your renovation. A big factor in determining what you will spend will be the size of your bath, ranging from tiny to medium or large bathroom size. Also, don’t forget the fixtures you will need to fit in your bathroom. They will range in cost depending on their size. The list of fixtures involved in remodeling a bathroom can include items such as faucets and fixtures, floor plans, showers or baths, Jacuzzi tub, new flooring, new countertops, cabinets and lights. There is a long list of items with a lot of different prices and choices to compare before deciding what to buy for your bath remodeling project.
The next question you need to ask is why do you want to remodel the bathroom? Bathroom Remodeling Inspiration can come from anywhere. It does need to start with why you are starting this project to begin with. Is it to update the functionality of your bathroom? To keep the style and color trendy? Who is this bathroom for: you or your family? Ask yourself what kind of bathroom design style should it be… classic or contemporary? Regardless of how you plan to design your bathroom, your decisions should reflect both your design sense and lifestyle. All of this impacts your costs and price range for accessories.
Approach your contractor with many examples of your remodel ideas, including pictures from home decor magazines, links to bathroom design ideas on the web and paint chips from the hardware store. The more information a contractor has ahead of time, the more your bath remodel will turn out exactly how you want.
Remember to plan and use your budget to help make decisions that keep your expenses down. In the end if you stay organized you will have the bathroom you hoped for and still have money in the bank.
