Apart from closets and foyers, the bathroom is one of the smallest spaces in your home. However, size isn’t everything, and the cost of your next bathroom remodel might just surprise you. Avoid unexpected dollar signs by learning five big factors that may influence the cost of your bathroom remodel.
Your luxurious rain shower or majestic claw foot tub may still be worked into your existing layout—just make sure you’re working with a team of remodeling experts who can tackle the job for you.
Tubs and showers run the gamut when it comes to price, so it pays to think about how what level of luxury you want before starting a new project. While one-unit surround showers might save you money, a tiled master shower with multiple heads and specialized fixtures might match your personal style and increase the value of your home in the long run.
Oak and hickory are on the more affordable side of the spectrum. Oak boasts durability and strength, and comes in a rainbow of new colors so you can forget the infamous dark and drab oak of 1980’s kitchens and bathrooms. Hickory is oak’s brighter, creamier, and equally strong counterpart, and both woods are great for traditional spaces.
Maple and cherry are on the higher end of the bathroom remodel cost spectrum, but adds versatility and elegance while providing a blank slate for your personal style. Cherry, in particular, can be used to give bathrooms a contemporary flavor.
Plan for the worst case scenario by adding a comfy cash cushion to your remodeling budget. While your contractor can’t predict the future, you can definitely protect yourself (and your piggy bank) by thinking ahead.
Now that you’re well-versed in five of the biggest factors that influence the cost of a bathroom remodel, you can start a new project as a savvy spender.
