Three Things To Consider Before A Bathroom Remodel

Bathroom remodeling considerations

Bathroom remodeling is one of the most popular home remodeling services we offer at Pegasus Construction. It's right up there with kitchen remodeling, as clients know that a nice bathroom can add quite a bit of value to one's home.

Though it may not seem as such, bathroom remodeling can easily turn into one of the most costly home remodeling services you'll ever book. Most homeowners are in search of the perfect "evolved" bathroom, with updated technology and features that help create their perfect little center of zen. That's perfectly fine, but there's a lot involved in creating a bathroom that's completely "evolved".

Below, you'll find three of the biggest things to consider before tackling a bathroom remodel.

#1: Consider Your Budget

Finances play a huge role in whether or not you're able to get the bathroom you want. Depending on your budget, you may not be able to get all of the things that you want, but you may be able to get some of them. Your total spend for your bathroom remodeling project will depend on three different things:

  • The size of your space.
  • The cost of materials used.
  • The scope of the project.

More elaborate bathrooms with updated bathing and cleaning technologies will yield higher costs than a simple space to wash up and freshen up. If you're looking for an estimate on a bathroom remodeling project, call us today. We will happily help you create the perfect space for your budget.

#2: Include The Essentials

There's a huge difference between a "need" and a "want". Your "needs" to consider when you're planning a bathroom remodel would be the basic necessities: shower/tub, sink, toilet, lighting. Anything that builds onto those, like extra features, would be "wants''. Your basic necessities, or essentials, are most important.

When planning and budgeting a bathroom remodel, the essentials are the first things you should consider. If you find that you have the budget, by all means, build them up. However, if you don't account for the essentials and simply push for the "dream bathroom", you'll be very disappointed by your results.

#3: Plan For Mishaps

Any time plumbing is involved in a project, there's always the possibility for a mishap! It doesn't matter how experienced your plumbing or remodeling company may be, issues with plumbing are almost always a given.

When you're laying out your budget for your bathroom remodel, follow Murphy's Law. Provide yourself a little bit of a cushion for anything that may go wrong during the course of your project. It's always better to be cautious than to be taken by surprise and needing to find money for repairs down the road.
