small bathroom renovation budget

Renovating can add significant value to your home and make day to day tasks so much easier and better, but how much is too much when it comes to the cost of renovating a bathroom? We see people with all different levels of budget, but one thing we 100% recommend is set a budget and stick to it.

Renovating your bathroom can add significant value to your house. Homes with modern or renovated bathrooms often sell at a significantly higher price than those with old and outdated bathrooms. Investing in a good bathroom renovation can not only improve your living circumstances but make you money as well. However, before you start any renovation project, you have to understand the cost of renovating and remodelling a bathroom, set a clear budget and stick to it.

Whether you allocate a large number of funds for your renovation, or are on the tighter side, knowing precisely how much money you have to spend and staying within that budget is crucial to the success. Reducing and managing the cost of renovating your bathroom can be difficult, but our bathroom experts have put together some tips to help.

Determine your goals

The first question you have to ask yourself is why you want to renovate your bathroom.

Consider:

  • Are you remodelling because it’s not functional the way it is?
  • Do you need more storage space for a small bathroom?
  • Is it just tired-looking and desperately needs a refresh?

By establishing the goal of your project, it’s a lot easier to set a budget for your bathroom and stick to it. 

Know your costs upfront

You must have your renovation fully costed before commencing. Knowing the cost to renovate a bathroom is important. That includes the cost up of fixtures and fittings, the labour of your renovation team plus any hidden costs. It’s vital to know upfront how much bathroom renovation is going to cost.

A contract is key

A contract provides practical and plain information on the renovation contract requirements and the building process to assist both the home-owners and renovators to be aware of their obligations.

Before starting your project, it’s always best to get all the costs of remodelling a bathroom written into a contract and signed off by both parties to ensure everything is understood and agreed to.

Invest in a good project manager

Yes, it may seem like a big cost at the start, but the time and money you will save by investing in a good project manager to oversee the project will be more than worth it.

The project manager is responsible for the coordination of all aspects of the work, which will eliminate most of the common pitfalls associated with doing it yourself.

Think smart when it comes to bathroom materials and fittings

Don’t just select what you think looks good, opt for functionality as well as smart design to see the value every time you use your bathroom.

Bathroom styles and trends come and go, so it’s important to select a style that will age reasonably well with an emphasis on functionality and is consistent with the style of the rest of your home.

Bathrooms can date very easily, so often less is more with your design choices when it comes to your materials and tiles.

Don’t renovate with regret

It may seem like a good idea at the time to go with the cheapest quote.

Or to try and save money and not go for that custom vanity or walk-in shower, which would have been perfect for the space. In a year, you don’t want to be saying ‘I wish we had upgraded to a walk-in shower’.

We want you to love your bathroom and, if it’s out of your reach, save a bit more and do it properly when you’re ready.

Unfortunately, reducing the cost of remodelling your bathroom also results in larger costs in the long run.
