Budgeting for Your Bathroom Remodel
Like many home renovation projects, the key to a successful bathroom remodel is thorough planning. From the contractor you hire to the elements you select, there are big decisions to make throughout the entire process.
To ensure you make the right decisions, it’s important to first have a firm-grasp of your budget. Knowing how much to spend and what to spend your hard-earned money on can often be the most difficult choice. However, understanding the cost factors involved will make these choices much easier overall.
Does ROI Matter?
Most professional bathroom remodelers in Phoenix will agree: One of the earlier decisions you need to make during a bathroom remodel is how important it is that you receive a return-on-investment (ROI). For example, if you want to maximize your ROI, you should avoid “over-improving,” or spending no more than five percent of your home’s value on your bathroom remodel. Alternatively, for homeowners hoping to maximize their ROI, selecting mid-grade materials can bring the highest returns.
Floor Plan Details
Do you want to change the bathroom’s existing floor plan? No matter what kind of bath you are remodeling, a functional floor plan is vital to a successful remodel. In order for a bathroom remodeler in Phoenix to develop the best bathroom for a client, he or she will need to know who will be using the bathroom, when they will be using it and how they will be using the space. With these details in hand, your contractor may surprise you with layout ideas you may have otherwise overlooked.
Next, you will need to calculate the costs of fixtures, toilets, sinks, faucets, tubs and showers, as well as elements like flooring, cabinets, lighting and countertops. Keep in mind: If you’re on a budget, you’ll find that it will pay to be as flexible as possible. In other words: Be realistic and compromise, when necessary. If it’s a high-end remodel, remember that just because you’re doing this type of remodel, it doesn’t mean all the materials have to be expensive, especially if you’re the only one who will notice in the long run.

Before hiring a contractor, it’s important to understand that the quality of your remodeling experience is dependent on the quality of the professional. Finding someone you feel comfortable working with isn’t easy, so make sure to take your time.
