Bathroom Remodeling is more often a need rather than a want.
Un-like a car that depreciates, Bathroom Remodeling offers a great return. Not only does it make sense to invest in your home, its an investment in the quality of your life, its just a smart business decision. Bathroom Remodeling can be a makeover, an expansion or an addition.

A makeover is generally easier and less expensive the other project categories. No walls are moved,
and plumbing, windows, and doors are left in place. The most common targets to upgrade are floors, fixtures, lights, fans, and counter-tops.
Updating cabinetry may entail only fresh paint or new drawer fronts and doors. (Your Designs LLC has an amazing refacing program, Bruce Reese) Controlling material costs is a matter of making smart decisions and using expensive materials where they matter most. It's important to note, however, that construction costs can still get out of control in a makeover project if you don't consider everything carefully. for example, swapping a vanity for a pedestal sink my mean replacing the floor as well.
If a bathroom is well located with-in the floor plan of the house but is too small or lacks the features you want, you'll need to plan for an expansion. A bathroom on an outside wall can be bumped outward. But a bump-out needs a foundation, , a roof, and exterior walls, which are more expensive than allocating space within the footprint. If you can commandeer six square feet from a adjacent room or closet, you'll have enough space to add a second sink or a linen closet to your bath, construction costs will not be nearly as expensive as an addition.
There are situations when building an entirely new bathroom is necessary. A typical starter home has only two bedrooms and one bath. Add children to the family, and the household soon needs a additional bathroom. This is often the right time to add a master suite, and use the original two bedrooms and bath for the kids and guests. It's an expensive project, but the alternative-a bigger house-is not only more expensive but means moving. All bath additions have this in common; costs associated with connecting to the existing sewer line. Tying a new drain line into a existing one is always less expensive than running a new dedicated sewer line to the street or basement. This is especially true for an upstairs addition; getting a new sewer line down through the lower floors can be tricky. Talk to your plumber about it early in the process.
