Bathroom remodeling is one of the most popular home upgrades, and it is also one of the most difficult. While many other remodeling projects can be great do-it-yourself activities, the bathroom is often not one of them. In this relatively small space, a lot of specialized knowledge is needed, as plumbing and electrical fixtures are such a vital piece of your remodel.
It definitely helps to call in a pro for your bathroom remodeling job, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that this project needs to be extravagantly expensive. Even on a smaller budget, a bathroom remodel can be a possibility in your home.
There are several reasons for remodeling your bathroom. There are plenty of benefits to taking on this project. Upgrading a dated bathroom can add value to your home. New plumbing, fixtures, and some fresh décor can increase your property value, which is a major plus in today’s very competitive buyer’s market.
A remodeled bathroom can also make you feel better. More and more homeowners are looking at their bath as a place to relax, unwind and de-stress after a long day. Features like large soaking tubs and large showers with multiple heads are not so much wants for many folks; these are turning into must-haves.
Also, if your bathroom is in need of extensive plumbing repairs or has suffered any damage due to plumbing or other problems, a remodel may be in order. It is a great time to install a new look.
What happens in your bathroom remodeling project depends on your wants, needs, and your budget. A complete remodel means the room is gutted; all fixtures are removed and drywall is taken down. Then the new piping, drain lines, walls, flooring, fixtures, and everything else new is installed into the bath.
This doesn’t mean that you have to tear up everything if you want to update your bathroom. Smaller remodeling projects are an option, especially if you are working with a smaller budget. You could chose to focus more on cosmetic changes, instead of replacing the internal plumbing. Some new fixtures, faucets, and a coat of paint could also do wonders for the way your bathroom looks and feels.
