This is a commonly asked question. There are two routes you can go: the seller’s route and the forever home route. If you plan to sell your home you will want to start off your bathroom remodel budget by looking at what homes in your area have sold for and what updates were made.
Everybody’s bathroom style preferences are different. Select neutral finishes and a modest budget that you’ll likely see a return on investment from when it comes time to sell. To find out how much to spend on your small to mid-range New Jersey bathroom remodel, check out Hanley Wood’s Cost vs. Value guide.
If this is a forever home project, make a wish list with “wants” and “needs”. The best bathroom remodels in Westfield, NJ and surrounding areas feature efficiencies that make morning and evening routines convenient, and style preferences that give the appearance of a truly custom bathroom remodel.
As with the example above, we suggest you visit the Cost vs. Value guide and select small, mid-range, or major bathroom remodel category to see costs for these projects sizes and there ROI.
Remember that materials and products can keep the project within budget or make you go over budget depending on which selections you make. And because you don’t always know what lies underneath a floor or behind a wall until demolition begins, it’s important that you factor in “unforeseen” costs when planning your budget. We suggest you factor 10 to 20 percent of your total remodel cost for unforeseen expenses. If there are no issues, you can apply the funds towards bathroom design upgrades.
