Bathroom Remodeling: How to Plan your Budget

Are you thinking about bathroom remodeling? If so then you have a lot of work ahead of you, and one of the most important things that you’re going to do is plan your budget. You have a finite amount of resources on hand, especially when it comes to cash, and the last thing you want to do is an overreach.

We’re going to break down the items that you need to consider, whether you want to splurge on modern toilets or install more towel holders. Keeping on track doesn’t need to be difficult but it will require some pre-planning on your part. We’re going to cover a few items that you’ll need to plan for so that you’ll be ready to set up your budget.

Preparing the Ultimate Budget for the Ultimate Bathroom

Bathroom RemodelingYou’re standing here, hammer in hand, eager to get started on that bathroom remodel. You don’t know for sure what you want, you just know that you want something new. So how do you get there? It all starts with estimating the materials that you’re going to need.

A Look at Bathroom Materials

Materials aren’t fixtures – far from it. We’re talking about things like tiles, wallpaper, underlayment, and just about anything else you’d need. Here is where you want to do some serious planning. What are you going to be removed, and what are you going to be leaving? For everything you want to remove, you’re going to need a replacement of some type and that’s going to add to your budget. Make a list of every single material you’re going to need and save it for later because you’re going to need it when you’re adding up the totals for your budget.

Bathroom Fixtures – One of the Heaviest Parts of your Budget

There’s no escaping it: if you’re going to do a bathroom remodel then you’re going to need fixtures and they’re not exactly the most inexpensive part of the job. This is another area where you’re going to need to make a list, but you will also need to take into account the exact fixtures you want. This is extremely easy as we offer a wide variety of modern toilets, towel holders, and so on.

Bathroom fixtures are more than just sinks and toilets, you also have your lights, medicine cabinets, your vanity, and so on. All of these come together to complete the picture and help to create the perfect bathroom.

Factoring in the Unexpected Expenses

We’re at the part of the renovation that you really don’t want to think about: unexpected expenses. We want to go into some of the things that might or might not come up, starting with those items that are completely out of your control.

What’s Beyond your Control?

Bathroom RemodelingThere is a wide range of items that may be entirely out of your control during a renovation, for example, you have existing damage that you weren’t already aware of, for example, you may have rusted pipes or rotted floorboards. These are just two examples, and there is always a chance that you will happen across more problems as you move along.

Some things can be ignored and others will need to be fixed right away; it all depends on what you find and how imperative the repair is. The amount of money that you set aside for your emergency budget will depend on the size of your bathroom, but for smaller bathrooms, we would suggest that you put at least $1000, and up to $5000 for larger bathrooms. There is nothing to say that you’re going to be using it all, but it’s always a good idea to be prepared.

Planning for Extras

Sometimes, added expenses aren’t necessarily going to be the result of an emergency. For example, maybe you will find that you want to add a paper holder or towel dispenser along the way. No matter what, these small expenses can add up, and with that being the case, you’re going to want to make sure that you have a budget set aside for them. Plan for extras and buy the best, your bathroom deserves it.
Plan for disaster, plan for last minute additions, and most importantly, plan for the perfect bathroom. It’s time to make your budget and start building!
