DIY Bathroom Remodel
Bathroom remodels can be one of the most expensive rooms to do. When you want to redesign and create your special oasis for that spa-like feeling, then you need to be in the know. By understanding all that steps with a full renovation of any bathroom, you’ll be in a position where you can save hundreds of dollars if not in the thousands.
How would you like to know how to stretch your money further by getting more for your dollar or simply being able to pay less?
If this interests you, then read on to see just how easy you can go from paying more than you need because you simply just didn’t know the difference, to now I know and here’s where I can save money. Now what you’re about to read is not about contractors and designers over charging you for paying to much for a renovation that does happen and you’ll be able to spot that with ease, so it doesn’t happen to you. I’m talking about simple design techniques that can increase your costs by not understanding the renovation business.
You see there will always be some designers and contractors that charge more than they should, and most people don’t understand improvements enough to know the difference. I’ll show you how to fix that! The cost I’m talking about is the methods and materials used for your renovation budget, which you can check out at my Average Renovation Costs page. When you have the knowledge about renovations, you’ll be able to do the following.
- Design your renovation
- Know what each trade will do
- Choose what works best for you
- Know how to save without cutting corners
First let’s take a look at designing your renovation. Now many people will sit down and lay out how they want their bathroom to look. The problem is when your understanding of what each tradesperson does, usually your designs will cost you extra money because of the choices you’ve made. The contractors can see about making it happen, but it will come at a higher cost unless they explain another option that most don’t, their there for the money. Now depending on what you do know and how much of the renovation you are doing yourself can still cost you more when you don’t understand the full job at hand.
So how much difference does it make knowing what each tradesperson will do? For starters, you would want to know the entire sequence of events from who starts first to who will be last. You will need to know this for a few reasons, whether you’re planning on doing the entire renovation yourself or if you need certain trades people for some parts of your remodel. A simple example to get the point across would be to have all your plumbing and electrical done before you sheath the walls. Now apparently this sounds very straightforward that the proper sequence would adhere to but there are plenty of things in a full bathroom renovation where the sequence could be out of sequence. Once you’ve missed a step, you will then have time and money wasted to make the correction in most cases.
Choose what works best for you and the reason I say this is your the one living in your home with the renovations taking place. What works for one person will not always work for another. You know your lifestyle and what your tastes are for living conditions. You can take in suggestions but you need to make all final decisions and what you will use and how your bathroom shall look.
Knowing how to save without cutting corners is one of the biggest concerns any homeowner undergoing renovations should know. There are far too many cases where the homeowner doing their renovations didn’t know or understand what was required and did something wrong which is very easy to do. But far worse is when trades personnel or contractors cut corners to make the final appearance of your renovation look good but saved money to make a bigger profit by cutting corners on structure etc. It is always best to know what is required to check that the job is done right.
When you get the videos from Bathroom Remodeling University and learn what it takes to do each segment of the total renovations required to do a bathroom, you’ll have the knowledge that you need to save money whether you hire out and especially if you do your renovations. Knowing all the steps for a DIY Bathroom Remodel, puts you in the drivers seat for your next home improvement.
