Busted! Don’t Believe These Bath Remodeling Myths!
A bathroom renovation is the best time to introduce new improvements and create a relaxing, functional space that will serve you and your family for years to come. Whether it’s a minor upgrade or a full overhaul, bathroom remodeling can make a big difference to the style and value of your home.
However, there are a whole lot of myths about what you should or shouldn’t do when beginning a remodeling project. Believing in these false facts and outdated information will most likely make you hesitate to consider undertaking this project. To help you separate facts from fiction when it comes to remodeling your bathroom, Luxury Kitchen Bath Express has debunked three of the most widely believed myths about bath remodeling.
Myth 1: Estimates and quotes are the same things
That’s not true! An estimate is just that, an estimated cost. It’s not exact, and nobody doing estimates should be held to those prices. A quote, on the other hand, is a hard number with specific items listed. Getting the estimated cost is a good idea in the early stages, so you can see if the project is feasible. But, once you settle on a remodeling company, you must get an exact quote before making your remodeling decisions.
Myth 2: Get three quotes to get the best price
Not sure who made this up, but it has absolutely nothing to do with getting the best price. Here’s proof. In Raleigh, North Carolina, there are over a thousand remodeling contractors. To be sure you got the lowest price, you would need to get around thousand cost quotes, and not three. The idea of getting one or two prices from reputable craftsmen is wise. But, it’s only to make sure the costs are within reason. Most legitimate professionals are within 10% of one another as skilled labor all costs about the same. What you really want is a “Fair” price from a competent, experienced professional. You should be trying to determine professionalism, focus on quality and customer-centered services. You also might think about how organized they are and how well they communicate.
Myth 3: Design only matters if you’re changing the layout
Even if you are keeping the same footprint, a good design matters; the colors, products, and features will create a sense of style and functionality that makes you love your space. A successful bathroom remodel involves more than just choosing a few products to install in your space. You must ask yourself if the new additions go well together, do they fit the style of your space, or they are too large or too small for the place. Good design makes a difference in how you and others feel in the area and increases your resale value and your home equity.
