What do you think is the most common home remodeling project in America? The kitchen, living room, and basement are all great guesses but wrong. Bathroom remodeling is currently the most popular type of home renovation in America. 81% of homes have their bathrooms remodeled and more construction companies are beginning to invest in this service. At NJ Home Builder, we’ve seen and done all kinds of home renovation projects including bathrooms. We’ve answered all kinds of questions but find a few myths persisting when it comes to bathroom remodeling. We are here to help dispel these misconceptions and give you the facts. Sit back and let us educate you on why these myths are meaningless.
You Need a Huge Budget
The biggest concern clients have when remodeling their home is how much it costs. Due to various factors such as building material, working with water, and the time put into it, they think you need a massive budget to remodel the bathroom. Luckily, this is simply a fallacy. The average cost of remodeling a bathroom is between $12,000 and $15,000. While this is a pretty penny, it’s not nearly as expensive as other projects. This is a very reasonable price for one of the best investments you can make. On top of this fact, a remodeled bathroom adds value to your home! You’ll gain an extra $23,000+ to your home at the least! What other project gets you a massive return?
It’s a Luxury Project
For some reason, clients tend to think that getting their bathroom remodeled is a luxury project. While having a luxurious bath to relax in is fantastic, you don’t need to have a truckload of money to remodel. Those glorious master baths you see on Instagram are just one room in a multi-million dollar mansion. Remodeling the bathroom is by no means a project reserved for the super wealthy. Just because you aren’t the founder of a billion dollar company doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a new bath. No matter what type of home you have or your income status, you can engage in this project.
You Need to Expand Your Bathroom
Another misconception clients have is the need to expand the room. While you can make the room bigger, it’s not a necessary part of the process. Whatever you have in mind, the size you have now is fine. Retiling, adding a new shower, or just overhauling the whole room, none of these need to change the size of your bathroom. You can have your bathroom expanded as part of the remodeling but it’s completely up to you. No matter what your goal is, we can make it work in your bathroom. Don’t feel like the size of your bathroom is going to limit you, the only real limit is what you want to get done.
It doesn’t help you save money
For some reason, clients are under the impression that remodeling their bathroom causes them to lose money in the long run. While you will have to pay upfront for the project, it actually helps you save money. How do you exactly end up with more money in the long run? By adding new fixtures and pipes that use less power and water. Not only will these help you use less water and bring down your bill, but it also helps you be more green. When you remodel your bathroom, take some time to look into the different types of showers, baths, and other fixtures that will help you get more bang for your buck in the long run. We promise you that this is an investment you will love!
