There are many questions when thinking about a bathroom remodel as the total cost depends on how you design and style your bathroom. A bathroom remodel provides the highest returns as a home improvement project, but it takes ample amount of time to complete. Therefore, it is crucial to plan the remodeling process and ideas beforehand in order to make the right decisions when remodeling, and getting the perfect contractor to get the job done.
Adding windows is essential, as it will also provide for a natural source of light in the daytime, but also makes the bathroom more breathable. However, they are a pricey solution, and instead of making a big hole in your wall to make room for a window, alternatives can be used. One example is the sun tube or the solar tube, which can be installed to give off solar light. They range from 10 inches to 20 inches in diameter and are easy to install, as only a small hole has to be made.
Another cost-effective method is to buy the materials yourself and then hire the contractor to install them. Many designers offer a “design only” service, which means they will design the space; you just have to purchase the material and get a contractor to get the job done. Another method that can help you save money and reduce your bathroom remodeling cost is to have flexible expectations. This can mean, for example, choosing stock fixtures from local home improvement stores rather than custom pieces.
