One of the joys of being a homeowner is the ability to freshen up the interior with a bathroom renovation. After all, it’s one of the most important rooms in your home and remodeling it is not as costly as one might think, especially if you follow the suggestions from the experts at Anytime Plumbing. When it comes to bathrooms, we’ve seen a broad range of sizes and styles and understand how refreshing it can be to walk in and use a bathroom that looks and feel like it was just built. The following are some of the questions we have answered for clients in the past.
Can I really afford to renovate my bathroom?
If you’re worried about finances when it comes to any kind of remodeling, you’re not alone. We know cost is always a major concern. However, the key to any remodeling project is conscientious budgeting. A common mistake that individuals make when doing any kind of renovation is that they over-budget for materials that don’t need to be that expensive or underestimate the costs involved. Be sure you set aside an emergency fund to cover any unexpected costs. However, we are one of the most cost-effective plumbing services in the state and work within your budget.
Should I consider upgrading the lighting and plumbing fixtures?
You’d be amazed at how upgraded lighting and plumbing fixtures can transform a bathroom’s overall appearance. Thus, it’s important to allocate part of your budget to new light and plumbing fixtures. Our experts all agree that, when it comes to daily activities such as brushing and flossing your teeth, styling your hair, or washing your hands, your bathroom lighting can make a world of difference. You’ll be amazed at the impact new lighting and plumbing fixtures can have on the color, mood, and tone of this most important room in the house.
Are there any other details I should consider?
If there is one thing that the bathroom remodeling experts at Anytime Plumbing of Santa Cruz are good at, it’s paying attention to the smallest details when engaged in a bathroom renovation project. Considering that your bathroom is probably one of the smaller rooms in your home (if not THE smallest), the smallest bit of detail can go a long way. Some of the better details to consider include applying new wallpaper and/or installing new drawer handles or pull knobs. When it comes to these items, you can’t go wrong with brass or pewter, both of which add brightness and warmth to any room.
How much will it cost to remodel my bathroom?
As with the cost of any other remodeling project, there are certain factors that play a key role in the renovation of a bathroom. The key difference makers here are the costs of the design itself along with the lighting and plumbing fixtures. In addition to these factors, the type of flooring you select, building permits, and the overall cost of labor will impact the final price of the project.
The average cost of a bathroom remodel is about $10,500 although most homeowners will spend anywhere from $6,000 to $15,000. Furthermore, you’d spend an average of $3,500 to $7,000 to update the basics in a smaller size bathroom whereas the cost to remodel a large master bathroom could go as high as $25,000 or more. Additionally, labor averages around $65/hour and is about 50% of the total price of the remodel.
How can I be assured that I’ve chosen the right contractor for my bathroom remodeling project?
