Home renovations are always tricky, especially if you’re looking to improve your house without spending too much on repairs or additions. Bathroom renovations for one, should be given enough consideration before you even sign a deal with a contractor. Here are some of the most important considerations:
First, think ahead. Ask yourself if the renovation is intended to increase the home’s overall value (should you plan to sell it in the future), or for your personal preference and enjoyment. Updating to newer fixtures (water-efficient bowls, energy-efficient and highly-ergonomic tiles, sinks, and other furnishings) can significantly raise the appraised value of your home. On the other hand, if the updated look is more for your own personal benefit, the design that gets approved will focus on whatever your preferences are, for instance, open space versus privacy, luxury versus simplicity and homey comfort, and so on.
Next, ask yourself how long will it take, and at what cost. The timeline will depend heavily on your personal decisions regarding materials and design. Custom-made fixtures and accessories, generally, take time to get delivered, and some more complex designs or layout can’t get executed in just a few days. Get in touch with several bathroom remodeling contractors until you find one whose design proposal, project cost estimate, and project duration hew more closely to your preference and your budget.
