- Know Where to Splurge
When you want to make a splash with a bathroom design that adds value and function, there are few items that can make a real difference. One is a double sink, which lets you and a spouse or partner get ready in the morning more quickly. You may need to steal some space from a closet or move a wall, but the time savings every day may just be worth it.
Another great indulgence is to add a separate tub and walk-in shower rather than a tub-shower combo. These features give you more space to soak and scrub and are often more comfortable than the combo model. Finally, a separate toilet room adds privacy and flexibility for everyone to do what they need to do.
- Know Where Not to Splurge
There are lots of choices when undergoing a bathroom design that will quickly add time and money to the project. One is tile. There are lots of lovely natural-stone tile products that can be used on floors and in showers. But those products tend to be more expensive than porcelain tile that looks just as beautiful, with lots of texture and color options. These tiles are easier to maintain and do not require sealing.
- Keep the Pipes Where They Are
You can have brand-new tubs, showers, sinks, and toilets in your bathroom easily. The costs mount when you change the location of the plumbing. If you move the location of those fixtures, you’ll need to pay for new drain pipes and new supply lines to the new locations.
- Stick to the Plan
All too often homeowners will get into a custom bathroom remodel project and change their minds. Once construction begins, changes are going to add time and dollars to the project. New materials may need to be ordered and the delay can mean rescheduling when the project can be completed.
- Communicate With Your Contractor
You want a contractor you can trust to get the job done right. Regular communication is key to make sure you are getting what you expect.
