Budgeting for a Bathroom Remodel in York County, Pennsylvania

Any major remodeling project requires a substantial initial investment. Fortunately, if you choose the right home improvement project, it can provide a fairly high return on investment. Bathroom remodeling, for example, has an ROI between 70% and 80%.

Still, despite the high ROI, it is tough to come up with the initial capital to start a major home improvement project. One way to make this process a little easier is to budget for your bathroom remodel. Below you will find a step-by-step guide to budgeting for a bathroom remodeling project.

Crunch the Numbers: The national average for any bathroom remodel is between $16 and $52 thousand, according to Remodeling Magazine’s 2011-2012 Cost vs. Value report. To find out how much your project will run, compile a list of your wants and needs. Also, don’t forget to budget for labor, which usually accounts for approximately a third of a project’s cost. Then take a look at your personal finances. How does your desired bathroom compare to your current finances?

The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) offers a budgeting worksheet that makes this comparison easy to do.

Figure Out What You NEED: Does your budget need a bit of a trim? The first thing to do is cut the extras. Separate your “wants” from your “needs.”

Plan for the Unforeseen: Make sure your budget is not too tight. You need a little wiggle room for those unforeseen setbacks and last-minute changes. To cover these extra costs, we recommend setting aside 10 percent of whatever number has been budgeted for labor costs.

Staying on Budget: You have gone through all the work to form a budget; don’t forget about it once the project actually begins. Use your budget as a guide throughout the entire remodel.
