Bathroom Remodeling Tips
June 11, 2015 by Caleb Haniquet
A midrange bathroom remodel is a solid investment for your home’s overall value; we all know that much about investing in our homes. In addition to adding value to your home through a bathroom remodel, did you know you can maximize the value of your investment by using these intelligent approaches, which will create a stylish and budget-friendly bathroom? Here are some bathroom remodeling tips to get the most out of your upgrades and stay within budget.
Make a plan and stick to it: Before hacking away at your old bathroom tub tile, think about how you will use the space, what materials and fixtures you want, and how much you are willing to spend. Going into a bathroom remodel with a well-devised plan and a budget is key to a successful bathroom remodel. A licensed general contractor can help you choose a bathroom remodel layout that works well for you.
Keeping the same layout: General contractors agree that keeping your bathroom layout is a smart way to avoid the expense it would take to rearrange the current layout. Changing the walls for a tub or shower, or relocating the sink and toilet will all accrue additional costs in plumbing and materials. By keeping the same layout, your bathroom remodel budget can focus more on upgraded features, instead of plumbing or electrical rewiring.
Keeping your air clear: Bathroom ventilation is essential for removing the excess humidity that fogs mirrors, makes bathroom floors slippery, and contributes to the growth of mildew and mold. Controlling mold and humidity is especially important for maintaining healthy indoor air quality. Make sure your general contractor factors in a smart plan for bathroom ventilation, as this will save you long-term costs in battling mold and mildew down the road.
Do not forget about storage space: Adding a linen closet to your bathroom remodel is another feature that will never become outdated. Bathroom storage for linens, cleaning supplies and toiletries are practical aspects of your bathroom remodel that should not be ignored.
