Tips to Budget Your Bathroom Remodel


For a such an important room, the bathroom often falls behind the rest of the house when it comes to remodeling projects. It’s important to fully realize the bathroom’s potential as a stylistic space that offers both relaxation and function. When considering a bathroom remodel, however, some homeowners get ahead of themselves. Does transforming your bathroom into a “luxury spa” make sense for your budget? The experts of Southwestern Remodeling can help you through every step of the process. Our professional team has the experience and skill necessary to turn your vision into a reality.

There are several important things to remember when budgeting your bathroom remodel.

Have Realistic Expectations
It’s important to do your research before setting a budget for your bathroom remodel. Look at design trends in home remodeling magazines, and attend home improvement trade shows. Ask questions and know what options are available in today’s market. Make a wish list for your new bathroom, and decide which options make the most sense financially. You might want a new “luxury spa,” but it may not be realistic for your budget.

Get an Accurate Quote
After choosing your materials, you need a realistic quote from a trusted home remodeling company. Some contractors may quote a project at a lower price so you choose their bid. This will only cost you more money in the future when the project ends up being more than the initial quote. Southwestern Remodeling will give you an accurate quote for the project, and help you find alternative options so you get the bathroom you want!

Be Flexible
There are some custom options and expenses that are sometimes difficult to estimate in the initial quote. Allow enough flexibility in your budget for reasonable changes in the pricing of materials.
