If you’re dreaming about a home renovation, you might want to start planning early for your master bathroom. While it may not be the most frequently visited room by guests, it’s a space that serves multiple purposes – from showering to getting dressed to unwinding at the end of the day. There are a few reasons why the master bathroom can be the toughest room in the house to remodel. Let’s take a look: • Cost: Both bathrooms and kitchens typically require a significant investment for a major remodel. There are many fixtures and finishes to consider, such as new cabinets/vanities, plumbing, flooring, tiles, and more. That’s why it’s important to have a budget and stick to it. Finding a good contractor and shopping around for deals are also key to keep costs under control. • Time: Renovating a bathroom can take several weeks or even months, depending on the extent of work. A bathroom usually involves plumbing and electrical work, which can be complicated. If you only have one bathroom in your home, that means you’ll be without your primary living space for that amount of time. Make sure to plan your remodel so you have a backup bathroom to use while the renovation is underway. • Design: There are so many design options to choose from when redoing a master bathroom. From a sleek modern piece to a more traditional design, it can be tough to know which direction to go in. You’ll want to think about not just aesthetics but function as well. Do you want a bathtub/shower combination or separate tub and shower? Are you looking for more storage space? What lighting do you need?
