How to Plan for a Bathroom Remodeling Project

Your bathroom is probably one of the rooms that sees the most daily traffic in your home. For this reason alone, it’s important to keep it functional, pleasant to be in, and up-to-date to make frequenting it a positive experience for both you and your guests. Is your home dated or has your bathroom has seen a bit of wear and tear over the years? In that case, it may be time to consider planning a bathroom remodeling project. However, you might not know how to start planning. 

Do you need inspiration and advice regarding how to plan for a bathroom remodeling project? With over 65 years combined experience within the construction industry, The Dan Company’s team is more than happy to share how to go about planning a bathroom remodeling project.

1. Determine how much of a remodeling project you want to undertake.

Firstly, you need to determine how much remodeling you need your bathroom to undergo. Are you looking to just make surface-level alterations like replacing the flooring, giving everything a paint of coat, and maybe even changing the vanity? Or are you looking to completely change your bathroom’s layout, remove a wall, add more space, or gut the bathroom entirely and switch everything out for new appliances, etc.? Once you determine how much remodeling you want to make, you can gain a clearer picture of the price that you’re going to be looking at. Additionally, you’ll have a better idea of how long the project will take.

2. Figure out your budget.

After you know exactly what type of remodeling you want to undertake, it’s time to figure out roughly how much that will cost you. This handy Home Depot webpage walks you through several different types of bathroom remodeling projects and roughly prices how much you should expect the remodeling project to cost. However, it’s important to keep in mind that your unique home, existing bathroom space, and desired amenities and adjustments will dictate how much you will actually end up paying. Depending on how much you’re willing to pay and can actually budget, you may need to revisit step one and downgrade or upgrade your remodeling level according to what you can afford and want to change in your bathroom.

3. Get several contractors to price the job for you.

Last but certainly not least, it’s important to shop around and get several contractors to price the job for you. Although you may have a particular contractor top of mind for the job, we always recommend getting a holistic view of your options. This will help you to figure out if you’re getting fair price estimates based on several different evaluations. Going to your contractors with the type of remodeling you’re looking for as well as the appliances, flooring, layout changes, and other features you’re hoping to include will help you get the most accurate price points.
