Grey Subway Tile Bathroom
So how much do you want to spend on remodeling your bathroom? This is the decision that will effect your choices when it comes to renovation your bathroom as the budget dictates what pieces you can buy and also what work your professionals can do when rebuilding your bathroom.
Try and be conservative with what you expect to spend. Assume that for whatever the bathroom suites and other fixtures and fittings cost, that the budget will double when you include the labour costs. This is a good rule of thumb if you want an approximate measure of how much a new bathroom will cost you.
Remember there will always be unplanned expenditure. Maybe once the work is underway you realise that something you wanted to do just wont work. Or once the contractors pull out the shower or bath they discover damage hidden away that they didnt expect so there is extra expense to remedy that before they can continue the work.
Its worth considering employing the services of an interior designer as they can help you with the layout and look of your bathroom. They should also have good local contacts so may be able to negotiate good deals on items and work that you couldnt get on your own, and this in itself may save you money on your remodel.
Be realistic about how long it will take to complete the bathroom renovation. Speak to you designer or contractor to get a good idea but realise they almost always underestimate the amount of time it will take as they never seem to allow for any problems they may have along the way. Remeber that your bathroom will be out of action for some or all of this time so make other arrangements.
