As a bathroom remodeling contractor, I get calls from people, that have no idea what they want or how much anything is going to cost. Here’s some simple tips that can be very helpful when planning a bathroom remodel budget.
Bathroom Remodeling Investment
In 2008, the average mid-range bathroom cost around $16,000 and you could recoup around $12,000 of your original investment upon the sale of your home. According to a popular remodeling magazine, larger bathrooms using expensive fixtures, tile, bathtubs, woodworking, toilets and showers had an average of $52,000. Upon the sale of a home, you could recoup around $36,000 of your original investment.
Finding out How Much Things Cost
My first suggestion, would be to visit your local home improvement center, lumber yard or plumbing supply warehouse. Larger stores like Home Depot and Lowe’s, seemed to provide you with value pricing but don’t have a large selection. While doing some research on the Internet I noticed that some of their pricing is outrageously, outrageous. Some plumbing supply warehouses can provide value but beware others won’t.
