Budgeting for a Tampa bathroom remodeling project can be a test of both your time and self-control. It is possible to create a spa retreat in your master bathroom, but does that mean packing a lunch for work for five years? Also, will your bathroom renovation plans cancel out other plans for additional home remodeling projects? Think of a luxury bathroom as an island, if it is set within a home that is in disrepair!
This means you need to approach the bathroom budgeting project with a realistic attitude. Before you get upset, keep in mind that there is almost nothing that is impossible to do on a budget because manufacturers offer a wide range of fixtures and finishes with which you can accomplish goals.
It is time to do your homework!
Begin by researching all of the options currently available on the bathroom remodeling market today. Flip through magazines, visit Pinterest, check local home improvement trade shows, talk to a professional and begin to build a list of everything you are not able to live without. After the wish list is built, revise that to a reality list with pricing.
Ask for the real numbers!
When you are interviewing a professional to do a Tampa bathroom remodel, make sure the number you are being given is both accurate and realistic. Be wary if any professional quotes a project at $40,000 and another claims he can complete the same job for $15,000. You need the hard numbers, something that is only accomplished when a list of materials is chosen before the actual project begins.
Live for the unexpected moments!
The one sure thing about any renovation project is that you will spend more than planned. The key is to keep all of the unexpected overages within reason. There is a fine line between splurging and making foolish mistakes with a budget. Beyond fixture changes, there is also tear-out surprises that can suddenly appear behind the walls.
