There are many essentials to consider during a bathroom remodel, and budget is one of the most important. For one thing, you’ll want to make sure you have enough – plus something extra set aside – to pay for the project. Not only that,, you also need to take measures that won’t have you going over the budget.
- Set aside a budget for contingencies. Unwelcome surprises are one of the common reasons homeowners overspend on their project. Maybe, the bathroom remodeler has discovered water damage behind the walls or under the floor, or, perhaps, the plumbing is already incredibly outdated. Dealing with these will take money, and this is where a contingency budget comes into play. It allows you to pay for these unwelcome surprises without dipping deeper into your wallet.
- Schedule your bathroom remodel during the offseason. Spring and summer are the busiest time of the year for any kind of home remodeling project. Because these seasons are competitive, it might take a while before your choice of bathroom contractor can get back to you. Try to schedule your upgrade in winter instead. It’s the offseason for many shower remodeling companies. There’s a good chance you can get manufacturer discounts, and you won’t have to contend with other homeowners for your remodeler’s attention.
- Focus on your immediate needs. Most of the time, you only need to give what’s already there an update, not do a complete bathroom overhaul. Take your shower area, for instance. It’s one of the most often-used areas inside your bathroom, so upgrading it should be your priority.
