If you are in the market to remodel your bathroom then it would be best to know some of the pros and cons of remodeling.  Time to get financially and mentally prepared for what's to come.

Increases the Value of Your Home - Pro

A mid-range to high range bathroom remodel can increase the value of your home to up to $39,000.  Of course this all depends on what you have done to the bathroom.  It's been shown that you can retrieve up to 62% back on what you put into it.  This makes bathroom remodeling one of the highest returns of your investment when it comes to a home improvement project.

The Cost To Remodel Your Bathroom - Con

Let's get this out of the way right now.  Bathroom remodeling is not cheap.  If you think it's going to be cheaper by doing it yourself, by the end after you tally up what you spent, you will prove yourself wrong.  Like everything in life, you get what you pay for, so if you do go cheap, you risk spending more in the long run because the most expensive remodel is one you have to do twice.

Even though bathroom remodeling has the highest return on your investment, it is also one of the most costly upgrades.  Large scale bathroom remodels can be in the upwards of $55,000.  With most mid-range bathroom remodels costing close to $20 - $25,000.  Minor upgrades can be much less costly versus remodeling the entire bathroom at once.


The Excitement of Enhancing Your Living Situation - Pro

Remodeling your bathroom can be an exciting time.  It's a lot of fun to design and change the room to something that will enhance your day to day lifestyle.  There are a lot of great places to go online like Houzz for ideas on what the current trends are which helps with the design process.  EZ Bath can even do a 3D design and rendering of how your new bathroom will look.

It's a great feeling knowing that we have improved the lives of many.  I believe we even saved a couple of marriages which is a great feeling.

The Stress of Choosing the Right Contractor - Con

It can easily become a burden when trying to find someone to work on your home.  We recommend checking all sources like Google, Home Advisor, Angie's List, and the BBB before choosing "the one".   Make sure that your contractor is not only insured but bonded.  Ask questions like:

  • Do you use licensed electricians?
  • Do you use licensed plumbers?
  • How many years have you been in business?
  • Do you have any referrals?
  • What kind of products will you be installing in my home?

Always look for the best value and not the best price.  The most expensive remodel is one you have to do twice.
