Nothing is more stressful than a renovation that keeps giving you surprise costs. That’s why having a budget is so important. Having a clear number that you don’t want to go over helps you make the right decisions when it comes to choosing the elements that go into your new bathroom. Don’t get started with anything until you have a clear budget ready.
While you want to stick to your budget, you also don’t want to buy the cheapest items on the market. These things may not hold up as well and could need to be replaced sooner than buying something of a higher quality. Sometimes spending a bit more at the beginning can save you money down the road. You don’t need to buy top of the line, but you don’t want to buy bottom of the barrel either.
When you get started on your renovation, you’ll have a loose timeline, but it’s best not to be too rigid about sticking to it. Instead, give yourself some flexibility so that you have room in case issues come up or there’s some extra work that needs to be done. Trying to stick to a very strict schedule will be frustrating and nearly impossible so try to stay flexible to prevent frustration or anger along the way.
One of the easiest ways to save time and money is to throw in some work when you can. If you have skills or time that you can contribute, you can save money on labour and can possibly help speed things along if your timeline is lagging. Whether it’s painting, hanging shelves or simply doing some clean up, anything you’re doing is something that you won’t be paying someone else to do, which is good news for your budget.
