You don’t need to remodel your entire bathroom to get the best returns on investment (ROI). Contrary to popular expectations, it’s often small-scale renovations that have the best ROIs. Small-scale renovations cost less than a full bath remodel. However, without proper planning, you can easily go over budget.
To help keep your bathroom renovations within budget, the shower and bathtub replacement contractors at Elite Bathrooms LuxStone of Long Island share some tips below:
- Set aside funds for change orders – Change orders are last-minute changes to the scope of the remodeling project and usually increase project costs. In certain cases, they can’t be avoided. Fortunately, through early planning and meticulous budgeting, you can avoid having to make change orders.
- Focus on the wet area – As the name suggests, the wet area is composed of areas that are exposed to water, soap and scum on a daily basis. These features also happen to be the ones that suffer the most wear and tear and often need to be replaced.
What Are the Features You Need to Focus on in a Wet Area Remodel?
- Tub – Your tub is usually the focal point (a feature that can draw attention to itself) in a bathroom. As such, if you want to update your bathroom’s design, you should start with a tub replacement.
- Shower – Like the tub, your shower can also act as a focal point in your bathroom. To turn it into a focal point in your bathroom design, we recommend installing a large shower or (if there’s not enough space in your bathroom) frameless shower doors that can give the illusion of a larger bathroom interior.
