3 Things to Consider With Your Bathroom Remodel

Whether you purchased a home knowing you were going to remodel the bathroom or you are ready to make upgrades to a bathroom you have had for a while, having a newly remodeled bathroom can be a great experience. Unfortunately, the process of remodeling your bathroom can be less enjoyable if you are trying to do the job on your own, and you have little or no remodeling experience. Qualified bathroom contractors can make the remodeling process more enjoyable, but there are still at least three things you will want to consider.

Budget.  One of the first things you should do is to establish a budget. Decide how much you are willing to spend on a remodel. Because the actual remodel may cost more than you have originally planned, it is often a good idea to establish a lower budget with the understanding that you may need to raise your budget slightly later.

End Result.  You should have a vision of how you imagine your bathroom looking in the end. Do you want everything in the bathroom replaced with new, or is there something you want to keep? Maybe you have a vision of specific tiling, or you want the shower replaced by a tub. Perhaps you want everything in the bathroom color-coordinated. While you do not necessarily need the exact items picked out before hiring a contractor, you should at least have a vision of how you want your bathroom looking post-remodel.

Sacrifices. Unless your budget and space are unlimited, there might be sacrifices you will need to make. For example, if you have a smaller bathroom, you may have to forego having both a shower and a tub. If your budget is a little lower, your dream jetted tub might have to become an alcove tub. If your dream sink only comes in white, and you had your heart set on a black bathroom, you will have to decide which is more important. Early on, you should decide what you are willing to sacrifice and what you consider a necessity for your bathroom remodel.

While the end product of your bathroom remodel may not turn out how you planned it originally, having an idea of your budget, what you envision as the end result, and what you are willing to sacrifice can help the process get started easier.
