How much will my bathroom renovation cost?
So that 1980s wallpaper and water guzzling toilet are no longer working for you and you desperately want a bathroom makeover. Where do you begin? How much will it cost?
Well, as with any renovation, begin your bathroom renovation with a detailed plan. What are your objectives? Is the new bathroom meant to appeal to you or potential buyers? Is it a family bathroom or a guest bathroom? How much traffic will it see?
Think about lighting, power points and counter space. Deciding targets from the beginning will save you expensive changes mid-renovation.
Take meticulous measurements to determine exact space and what could be feasibly created there.
Setting the parameters for your project will give you an end goal. From here, you can determine the materials and fixtures you will need and work out a budget for your bathroom renovation.
Balance is the key
It is important to find a midpoint compromise when it comes to buying durable bathroom materials and ‘just good enough’ quality to get the job done.
Based on your end goal, you should be able to take a sober look at what it will take to get there.
Here are a few tips to remember in keeping your bathroom renovation cost down:
- Buying wholesale or online can save you a substantial amount of money, but it is important to be aware of the risks associated with buying something you have only seen in photos.
- Tiles can be used for flooring as well as a decorative backsplash.
- Mirrors can maximise lighting and make the room seem larger.
- Remember to practice good planning and find a balance to ensure your bathroom remodel is a resounding success.
