Look Out for These Hidden Costs When Remodeling Your Bathroom

Bathrooms are often the smallest rooms in the house, and remodeling them involves almost every trade. To stay on budget, it is important to be organized and purchase everything before work begins. It is also important to establish who will be responsible for getting rid of existing bathroom fixtures, hardware and finishes, and to budget for disposing of the items yourself. Unforeseen structural problems can be difficult to identify until everything has been stripped out. Depending on the age of your home and its general condition, you may have to spend a lot on fixing or preparing your walls and floor.

Custom-made items, such as shower walls or custom cabinetry, can be more expensive than off-the-shelf versions. Specialized finishes, such as mosaics or unusually shaped tiles, can take longer to install and be more costly, so it is important to have all of your finishes selected and purchased before your builder starts. Additionally, marble or stone may need specialist detailing at the edges, which can be done either on- or off-site. This will have an impact on the price.
