Why is it important to create a budget for your bathroom remodel?

Building a budget for your project creates a helpful guide so that you and the design team are on the same page at every step of the design process. Communicating a budget helps the design team to tailor your bathroom to you and what you are comfortable spending and keeps your project within reach so that you can make your dream space happen!

What are the steps for creating an accurate budget?

Most people aren’t sure what to budget for a bathroom remodel.  Perhaps you’ve looked at pictures online and wonder how much some of the features you would enjoy having might cost.  You may have heard of some of the little luxuries you can add to your bathroom but dismissed them because of the unknown cost.  Even if you aren’t sure what your dream bathroom will cost, you probably know what you can comfortably spend on it.  Communicating this figure to your design team is helpful because it allows us to show you beautiful, functional options in a price point you can manage.  

What are the primary features/biggest expenses to include in a bathroom remodel?

As you are considering a budget for your project, you’ll want to plan for all of the items that go into your bathroom: cabinetry, countertops, plumbing components, the installed surfaces, lighting, mirrors, and shower glass.  You’ll also want to plan for the labor: trash removal, permitting, demolition, framing, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, drywall, painting, and finish carpentry.  There is a lot that goes into such a small space in your home!  Eheart can help you to simplify this process and assure that you won’t forget anything in your planning to avoid unplanned expenses.

What is the cost range for a bathroom remodel?

A smaller bathroom, like a half bath or guest bath typically ranges between $12-20,000.  A master bathroom ranges between $40-65,000.  Of course, these numbers depend on your bathroom size, the features you wish to include and the level of finish, but this gives you a realistic window of costs to consider.

How can Eheart help clients create and stick to their remodel budget?

Meeting with our design team for an initial consultation begins the budget building process.  In your second appointment, we’ll have taken your design preferences and wish list and created one design that you can approach at three different price points, good, better, and best. As we talk through these options with you and show you each choice, you’ll quickly be able to see which areas you want to spend on and where you prefer to save.
