Thinking about Bathroom Remodeling? A Few Things You Should Consider
If you are thinking about remodeling your bathroom, you have made a great choice for many reasons. First of all, a bathroom remodel will give your home a higher resale value, and secondly your family will enjoy a newer, cleaner space.
However, there are a few things to consider before entertaining a bathroom remodel. Sometimes in being overzealous, you may overlook a few small things.
As with any remodel project, always be prepared for a worst-case scenario. It is important to know a little bit about the history of your home and the age of the bathroom. There may be plumbing problems or mold issues, for example, and these issues may be hidden from view.
If this is your first remodel project, it is important to note that any remodel project comes with unexpected surprises. It is typically not something that is hit or miss; you can almost bet on something not going according to plan.
Once you begin to open up walls, you are uncovering a mystery.
Plan Your Budget Accordingly
Make certain that you have a cushion in your budget. Allow yourself a certain amount of money for the “just in case” items that will almost certainly pop up out of nowhere. For example, you may open up a wall to discover outdated electrical wiring that needs addressing or a pipe with a small pin hole that was just waiting to burst. Make certain to add extra funds to the budget before starting a remodel project.
While you may have had your heart set on radiant heating for the flooring, sometimes what you envisioned is not always possible. Or perhaps you wanted to extend the bathroom, but once the project got underway, it was discovered that it will be much more costly than anticipated.
You may have to give up one set of ideas in order to adapt to another more cost-effective set of options instead.
If you are willing to go into your bathroom remodel project with an open mind and a bit of flexibility along with a wing and a prayer, you will find that your bathroom remodeling project will run a lot smoother when the inevitable bumps in the road appear.
So, as you can see, if you are prepared, willing to be flexible, and account for a little something extra you had not been counting on, all should go a little smoother with your bathroom remodel project.
