Bathroom Remodel Budgeting Is Easier Than You Think

Dec 1, 2007
If you are thinking of having a bathroom in your home remodeled, it can be a good idea to sit down and go over all the different things you would like to have done before you start. This is an especially good idea if you are going to be on a specific budget for the remodeling project.

Many times people decide to remodel and will have a budget to work with, but without careful planning, the budget can be out the window before you know what has happened. When you set an amount for your budget always try and factor in some extra money for unexpected things that always seem to pop up. Depending on how large your budget is will determine the things you will be able to accomplish.

Make a list of the most essential things you wish to have done in your new bathroom, the most important first and so on. If you are going to be moving things around like the placement of the toilet, bathtub, or vanity, then it will be necessary to have plumbing done. Even if you do the job yourself, there will be the cost of the materials needed.

If you are not going to move these fixtures, you might want to consider resurfacing for the sink, bathtub, or shower. This can be much less expensive and less time involved that buying and putting in new ones. This will not change the style of the fixtures, but it will make them look brand new and the color can be whatever you like. There are also pre made tub and shower kits you can purchase and do your self. These are cost effective too.

Choosing a new floor and countertop for your bathroom can range in cost depending on the material you decide to use. Natural stone is very popular, but it is also expensive and may need to be installed by professionals. Natural stone will add value to your home because it is so popular.

Vinyl or ceramic tiles can be less costly than natural stone and it is available in different prices. The variety of vinyl is almost endless and you are sure to find something you like. Many times vinyl flooring can be a do it your self project and this can save you money.

Whatever you choose to go into your bathroom remodel, add up the cost of everything before you start. It is always better to go into any remodeling project with a budgeted game plan and try to stick to it ot it could end up costing you a lot more than you originally planned.
