During this lull just before our busy season kicks in, we receive phone calls and messages from the Diamond Bath Facebook page asking about price ranges for our bathroom remodeling services. Beyond the simple size of a bathroom, there are MANY factors that can double or even quadruple pricing depending on what each customer is looking for. This recent article "7 tips to saving money on a bathroom remodel" are all very helpful, but we see a few as KEY to making your project truly affordable. Please pay close attention to:
#2 - Keep walls where they are! Attempting to create a more "open" space within a bathroom usually means moving electrical runs, water pipes and drains too. Let us make the most of your existing space affordably by using recessed shower niches, convenient built-in shower benches and new cabinets to give you more usable storage space. To see a good example of these improvements, take a look at the "Finesse" photo in our Gallery!
#3 - Converting Tubs to Showers can be easy and affordable! To keep your transition affordable, make every effort to keep the drains and water lines in approximately the same place. Water lines can be more easily re-routed than drains, but if you can keep everything about where it is today, you'll be pleasantly surprised by this affordable home improvement!
#6 - DIY Gone Awry! There is a reason that HGTV and other networks make reality shows about homeowners attempting to do things themselves. Within a bathroom you have many possible pitfalls from electrical lighting and ventilation to water pipes and toilet drains. And we all know that kitchens and bathrooms help sell a home - to say nothing about added value. Consider your personal free-time, peace of mind, families well-being and the future resale value of your home before you pick up that hammer or wrench!
