Many homeowners have questions when starting to consider a remodel of any kind. Here are a few of the most common questions homeowners have from the start.
A bathroom remodel will include a lot of decision-making. Several finishes go into the design of a bathroom and they should coordinate well together as well as communicate your personal style. This can be difficult to do when so many different styles, colors, and materials are available today. Creating a style board, whether on paper or online, will come in handy when you’re going to your site visit as well as when asking for a price estimate.
Do you want a walk-in shower? A steam shower system? A freestanding tub? A floating vanity or furniture-style vanity? Take your time searching online, looking at family and friend’s homes, and flipping through magazines. Take note of color combinations, fixture styles, and how the space makes you feel. The more research you do before your consultation, the easier your designer will be able to give you an estimate and the quicker your decision-making process will go.
The length of time a bathroom remodel will take depends on the scope of your project. Are you only interested in cosmetic updates, like replacing the tile, vanity top, paint, and fixtures? Or does your bathroom need a full overhaul, including changing the layout, possibly expanding the footprint, as well as replacing all of the finishes and fixtures? Also, keep in mind that the remodel timeline will include your in-home assessment and design meetings.
If your bathroom has had water damage and floorboards or even studs need to be replaced, this work will add to the timeline. On average, you can expect a bathroom remodel to take at least 3 weeks up to 4 months. It’s best to contact us to get the clearest idea of what your specific timeline may be with your bathroom remodel.
The standard for how much a bathroom remodel should cost is anywhere between 5% and 10% of your home’s current value. Where your bathroom will fall in that range will depend on the size and type of bathroom. A half bath will, of course, be lower in that range than a full bathroom or the primary suite bathroom. So, if your home is worth $600,000, the amount you should spend on a bathroom remodel is anywhere between $30,000 and $60,000. In our experience, bathroom remodels have averaged between $35,000 and $120,000.
However, there are always exceptions to the rule. Your bathroom may have water damage below the surface that will need to be repaired before the remodeling plans are followed through. If your choice of finishes are of the highest grade or you prefer smart features, like a high-tech steam shower system, you can expect your final cost to be above 10%.
