Remodeling your bathroom can be a big decision—one that you shouldn’t take lightly. Before the project starts, it’s a good idea to look in remodeling magazines and talk to your designer, asking as many questions as you can think of. The more, the better! It’s better to get all the information you possibly can on the front end.
Here is some important bathroom remodeling information:
- According to NKBA (National Kitchen & Bath Association), the national average for a bathroom remodel is between $15,000 and $20,000.
- It is recommended to spend no more than 10 – 15 percent of your home’s value on your bathroom.
- An average bathroom remodel takes about 2 – 3 weeks, and a master bathroom takes about 3 – 4 weeks. Certain features, like custom frameless shower doors, can add time to the project.
- Generally, having at least one tub in the home (preferably in a hall or guest bathroom) is ideal if you want to increase resale value.
- Small tiles aren’t always necessarily better in small bathrooms. Larger tiles have less grout and are, therefore, easier to maintain. Also, setting tiles diagonally on the floor can make the room appear larger. Small floor mosaic tiles and subway tiles on the wall are ideal if you want the “classic” look.
