Planning For A Kitchen or Bathroom Remodel

Boise Granite | Granite Boise

There are plenty of steps to take when it comes to remodeling your bathroom or kitchen in the home. Not only is the process tedious, but complications can develop if the homeowner is not prepared for the project. To plan for a kitchen or bathroom remodel, there are a few important steps to take.

Budget for Unexpected Costs

Although you may have already created a budget with the backsplash that you want to have installed or the new countertops that will be put in, it's important to leave room for unexpected costs that may arise. Your contractor may come across mold in the cupboards or a plumbing issue, making it important to have extra money on hand to continue on with the process.

Consider the Resale Value

When deciding the features or trends that you want to have installed, consider what buyers are currently looking for and will also want in the future. You'll need to increase the functionality of the space and add extra storage options to ensure that it appeals to more people and is worth the investment.

Work with Professionals

You may want to save money by remodeling the bathroom or kitchen on your own, but investing in the help of professionals can allow you to avoid costly mistakes. Hire a designer to help you choose different fixtures or hardware to ensure that the style is updated and looks flawless. If you're inexperienced with remodeling, you'll need the help of a general contractor to tackle the demolition and construction. This will save a significant amount of time instead of trying to perform the project on your own.

Create an Inspiration Board

To ensure that you're satisfied with the end result, it's important to use an inspiration board that includes photos of magazines of bathrooms or kitchens that you like. This will allow you to stay on course when picking out tiles for the backsplash or the right flooring material.
