Hawaii home remodeling projects often begin in the bathroom. Bathrooms are high traffic areas of the home and get a lot of use. It's easy to see why homeowners see the immediate value in a bathroom remodel project. This is certainly true for those that entertain or have guests and want a clean and functional bathroom space.
Before starting your bathroom remodel, it helps to have a clear idea and course of action before you actually start the remodel process.
Know Your Bathroom Remodel Budget
Your budget will be determined by the size of your project. Basic remodel projects that include re-surfacing as well as replacing old fixtures will cost between $4,000-$13,000.
More extensive remodel projects that completely renovate your bathroom, you should budget $9,000-$35,000. This would include new floors, counter tops, tubs and sinks and high-end fixtures. While a significant investment, the extensive bathroom remodel can completely change the look and feel of your home and be worth the investment.
Know Your Design Style and Direction
Knowing ahead of time what you want your bathroom to look like is important to your remodel success. Perhaps you are inspired by your own vision or you have been working with an architect or interior design professional; but whatever your inspiration, the design process is usually the most enjoyable and rewarding. The tropics from Hawaii to Bali have a plethora of design templates you can mix and match and borrow from. Indonesian design in particular is a popular source of inspiration and looks great in our Hawaii homes.
Contact A Professional Plumber
Even if you are considering tackling a bathroom remodel on your own, it's important to contact your local plumbing expert. They can help identify and foresee any potential problems or issues before you run into them and make sure things are done correctly.
If you have any long-term plumbing issues such as clogged drains or water pressure, it's advisable to lump these issues together into your larger plumbing remodel project. This will save you time and money.
