Is there something putting you off remodeling your bathroom? Like with any DIY projects, there are a number of myths out there that could either change the way you plan and enact your bathroom remodel, or change your mind about doing one altogether. It’s time to free yourself of those myths and go into your bathroom remodel fully informed.

Myth #1 – It will break the bank

Remodeling can be expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. You can go for as much or as little luxury as you choose, so be sure to set your budget first and then work your bathroom remodel around it. You can even save money on your bathroom renovations by carefully choosing the time of year you purchase the materials and hire the contractors.

Myth #2 – Buying cheap materials is the best way to save money

Sure, you can spend less on your bathroom remodel by choosing the cheapest materials available, but this is not a good investment. Cheap goods and materials are more likely to need repairing or replacing sooner than if you invest in quality materials, meaning you’ll have to spend more money down the line. Good quality materials will also help to add to the resale value if you plan on selling your home.

Myth #3 – You will save money by doing the remodel yourself

This may be true if you have lots of experience with plumbing and remodeling, but the majority of homeowners are better off hiring the professionals to get the job done for them. DIY projects can end up being costlier in the long run and almost always take longer to complete than a professional job. Hiring a professional contractor makes for a more efficient and reliable bathroom renovation.

Myth #4 – It will completely disrupt your life

Pretty much all home improvement projects will cause a bit of disruption to your life, but bathroom remodels don’t have to take forever to complete as some people might think. The length of time will depend on the scale of your renovations, but professional contractors work efficiently to cause as little disruption to your life as possible. If you’re still worried about this, you could arrange the remodel for when you’re away on vacation, so you can come back home to a brand-new bathroom.
