Let the Pros Handle the Bathroom Renovations
The bathroom is one of the smallest rooms but it a labor intensive space to renovate. Within the small space, you will look at plumbing, electrical, tile, counters, and cabinetry – maybe even extras like a heated floor. It can be cost effective by increasing your home’s value, providing efficiency and comfort while you live there, and producing a good return on investment. Angie’s List rated some of the more luxurious bathrooms as one of this year’s top remodeling projects. They are always a major selling point because people want move-in ready condition.
So you think you might take on the bathroom remodel yourself?
Think about this: “”A lot of consumers think it costs more to hire a professional, when in fact it will actually save them a lot of money in the long-run,” says Joseph Feinberg, who serves on the board of directors of National Kitchen & Bathroom Association (NKBA).
Here is some food for thought on a bathroom remodel:
- With that said, DON’T do it yourself; DO pick a qualified interior design professional. Remodeling other rooms in the house like a bedroom is very different than the kitchen or bathroom. Look at the designers in your area and choose a professional designer with credentials, a good reputation, a portfolio, and references. You need someone who can get you through the remodel efficiently.
- DO think of resale value. Right now, you may love where you live, but that can always change. Though you can make a personalized space in the bathroom, being too ‘unique’ can cause issues later down the road. It is always easy to stick to quality items in a remodel that can be updated for other people tastes as well. Who knows? Someone else might own your house in the near future, and you will want to get that return on investment.
- Lastly, DON’T overspend! Set a budget. This is easier to achieve when you work with a professional. With planning and figuring out what you want during that planning stage, you can work within your means to design the bathroom of your dreams.
