It can be overwhelming to remodel your bathroom, especially if you are new to the process.

Even though this is not the exciting part of changing your bathroom, creating a budget is essential if you are going to be happy at the end of the project. Not having a budget will likely lead to overspending and not realizing it until the end which will make it hard to finish the project the way you want to and in the right time frame.

You can look up local costs for labour and supplies to give yourself a rough idea of what it will cost to redo your bathroom. You should take these costs into consideration when you decide how you are going to remodel. You will need to think about if you are going to be selling your home in a few years if the location of the plumbed items needs to be moved, which parts of the bathroom remodel are essential, and how much you can afford to spend on the remodel.

Bathroom Layout

Once you know what is essential and where your budget is, you can start making a bathroom layout. You can use online tools to help you move elements around to see what will fit in the space you have to work with. While you are playing with the layout, be sure that you are considering where outlets and plumbing already exist because keeping those in place will save you time and money.

Picking the Materials

You will also have a lot of decisions to make regarding the materials you use in your remodel. If you are replacing that shower or bathtub, toilet, flooring, or sink, then you will have a lot of options to sort through. The style and kind of materials you decide to get will greatly impact how your bathroom looks as well as your budget.

Lighting Choices

You should think about the kind of lighting you will have in your bathroom as well. It is usually best to have several forms of lighting to enhance the appearance and functionality of the space. First, you need to think about the kind of natural lighting that will be available in the bathroom. The number of windows and which direction they face will let you know how much light you can rely on at different parts of the day from the sun.

You will also need artificial lighting, even if the natural lighting situation is good. You will need a main light for the bathroom and vanity lights may also be a good idea. Recessed lights that have a dimmer switch can help you adjust the light levels depending on your needs. You also want to make sure that there is enough lighting in the shower space to make it comfortable.
