While there are many rooms in your home that you think of as a place of enjoyment, the bathroom is usually left off this list. Yet, a bathroom can be a place of beauty; a room that fills you with a sense of tranquility and serenity. Plus, renovating your bathroom is an easy way to increase the value of your home.
Since bathrooms usually aren’t that large, you don’t need to invest a lot of money to change the room. Even doing simple upgrades, like changing the bathroom vanity, installing new fixtures or even just putting in a new sink, can make a huge impact on the little space.
It is a common knowledge that bathroom renovations will probably provide the best return on your renovation investment – your bathroom will need less repairs and will give off more décor style than any other room in the house.
So what are the average costs of bathroom renovation? This is a hard question to answer as prices range anywhere from $5,000 up to $30,000 depending on the amount of work and change you want to implement into your bathroom remodeling project. Even with your basic small bathroom, a full bathroom renovation can run to up to $9,000 in expenses – this is usually the cost estimated if you’re hiring a contractor to do the work for you, which may seem like a lot but in the end it does save you a lot of time and frustration. If you decide to make this do it yourself bathroom remodeling, remember to have all of the materials and bathroom floor layouts on hand before starting – you don’t want to be spending your precious time frustrated and stuck behind sweaty weekend shoppers.
A good budget checklist will help you to develop a realistic cost for the project before you start. Some of the items to include are:
• replacing a sink, toilet or faucet using existing plumbing
• installing light fixtures
• installing mirrors
• installing shelves
• painting bathroom walls
• installing new floors
• adding or removing bathroom walls
• moving a bathtub, shower or sink
• installing new ventilating system that runs through roof
