Compared to other renovation platforms, Block plays a key supporting role at each milestone of a renovation. That translates to renovations that end up on-time, in-budget, and less headaches.
Bathroom remodels are unique in that labor plays a much larger role in their total cost than other home projects. Kitchen renovations, for example, require more money to be allocated to expensive appliances. Specific elements of a bathroom remodel, like complex plumbing work, drive up labor fees considerably.
You’re probably thinking about replacing the entire bathroom, but right now you’re just focused on the sink. You know the old one has to go, and you know it’s an important element of your remodel, but you don’t know where to start when it comes to figuring out how much it should cost you to make the change.
Replacing an old, worn out toilet with a newer, efficient model can have a transformative effect on your bathroom. Unless you’re very comfortable with your home improvement skills, this is definitely a job better left for a professional plumber or an experienced handyman. A DIY toilet replacement gone wrong can lead to damaged floors, leaky pipes, and steep repair costs.
The moment you saw a glass shower door you knew you needed one. It was the look you wanted in your bathroom. Maybe it was in a style magazine or on Pinterest. Or, maybe you were lucky enough to experience it in a luxury hotel. In either case, you absolutely love the look and have to have it.
Tile is the most common and most practical surface for your apartment’s bathroom. The floors, walls, and shower are all ideally tiled, and luckily there are almost infinite styles of tiling to choose from. But with infinite choice comes an array of different potential price points and additional costs.
A small bathroom should cost less to remodel, right? It’s a smaller space, you’re using fewer materials, and it should take less time, right?
No two bathrooms are exactly alike. Every bathroom remodel sits on a vast design spectrum that spans from purely functional to opulent, somewhat in accordance with disparate sizes, locations, and budgets. As a result, it’s near impossible–and somewhat misleading–to establish a single average cost of a bathroom remodel.
You know your bathroom has to change. That much is clear. But how do you start to figure out how much it will cost?
Your automatic assumption may be that it’s very expensive. Maybe you’ve renovated another room before, or maybe your friends have told you bathroom reno nightmare stories. In either case, your first vision may be of big flashing, spinning dollar signs.
Bathroom renovations can be costly. But failing to tell your insurance provider about those renovations could be even more costly.
A lot of people forget, or don’t know they need to. But, that’s not an excuse in your insurance company’s eyes. Nor does it soften the financial blow when “something happens” during or after your renovations.
