Going DIY to Gain ROI: Tips for Budgeting a Bathroom Remodel
With the possible exception of the kitchen, no room in your house costs more to remodel than the bathroom. According to Remodeling Magazine, the average cost of remodeling a mid-sized bathroom is more than $19,000. For a large bathroom, you’re talking $62,000 (this figure includes fixtures, finishes, appliances, etc.). This isn’t like enlarging a closet or cleaning out the garage. It can be a major investment, which is why it’s important to budget carefully and determine what can be done DIY and when you’ll need a professional contractor.
