No doubt calculations are needed.
You never know how much money a job will take if you don’t make a plan – the necessary and desirable activities, the costs for each, and then a little ‘on the top’, because you know nothing …
Bathroom repairs are one of the jobs (and repairs in general) where expenses can vary, depending on your preferences and needs.
If you want a bathroom repair where you replace absolutely everything from tiles and lighting to a shower, bathtub or toilet, the cost will be much higher than if the repair plans involved just a few small jobs (shower replacement, tile replacement or refinement of small details that are worn out to make the bathroom look “fresher”).
We can get into a budget where we will have enough money to save ourselves, we can come to a budget that needs a quick loan or it takes several years to do what we want to do.
It may also be the case that we start repairing and running out of funds, but in those cases, the same quick credit may be the only wise save to avoid having to live in the long-term sense of constant repair.
So you have to calculate everything, depending on what you want to do during the repair. You should also consider how to save on repairs without wasting too much time.
Things to look for:
One compulsory edition
Costs for the craftsmen (depending on the intended work, of course). However, if you do not want to do all the repairs yourself, if you do not have the necessary specific knowledge, it is better to include in the repair expenses the work of a master.
This will ensure the quality of the work you do and not have to worry about having to do all the work a second time if you do not get it right the first time. It should be taken into account that a good master will not be cheap.
It is better to calculate the cost of materials right away (at least as finely as possible – there will always be some extra purchase that we did not think of the first time).
It’s a good idea to put together a list of things you want to do when renovating your bathroom and then go to a building materials and / or plumbing store to look, compare prices and understand the cost. You can also compare prices at online stores to save time walking the stores.
Choose the quality of materials carefully
You don’t need the most expensive tiles / water taps / pipes available in the store, but the cheapest ones will hardly be worth buying.
When choosing, pay attention to the price (focusing on the average) and the quality guarantee provided. If you have purchased the repairs yourself, it is valuable to look around the internet – what are the reviews for one or another product, waiting for a repair using one or another technique and so on.
People tend to share this often and actively, so it is valuable to use all the information available to them to get the best out of it without overpaying.
Understand where you can save, but definitely not
Ceiling in the bathroom can be simple – there is no need for an elegant and sophisticated solution. Wall finishing should be practical as the bathroom is constantly humid. Ventilation should also be practical and simple as it should allow good air exchange in the room.
However, there is definitely no need to save on the choice of floor. Good waterproofing will ensure, at worst, that your neighbors will be drained. The floor should be both practical and warm and comfortable, easy to clean. Here you should choose more carefully and get a good master for this job.
