When thinking about upgrading your home, the most common renovations are the bathroom, kitchen, and basement. Renovations, upgrades, and additions are all about adjusting your home to your lifestyle and allowing you to be more comfortable and happier in your own home. Most homeowners looking to do a renovation think home renovations are expensive. Of course, that establishing a budget is a significant factor for the scope of this process. But this doesn’t mean that you have to empty your pockets to renovate your spaces. If you decide to work with an experienced builder in Edmonton, your renovation can be done at an affordable price.

As experienced builders, at Edmonton Custom Home Builders, we are dedicated to major renovations and additions. In our many years of experience, we have noticed that one of the most renovated rooms in a home is the master bathroom. Logically, this space is essential to any modern home as it is considered a sacred place for pampering and relaxation. The major challenge that homeowners usually encounter when renovating their master bathroom is how to combine both luxury and functionality at a fair price. Our primary recommendation is that you trust in an Edmonton home builder that has the proper expertise to take on your project and that you consider the following tips to renovate your master bathroom while keeping your budget ―and stress levels― under control.

Ask your Custom Builder for A Plan

The first step for any building or renovation project is to establish a plan, design, and timeline. Only from this point, you can create a realistic budget adapted to your lifestyle. Having a plan will also allow you to embark on your renovation at an affordable price. Working with an experienced custom home builder to analyze the available space and to create a layout for your ideal master bathroom is a great strategy to keep your budget under control. Your custom home builder's experience will grant the best use of the space and the correct adaptation of your master bathroom to your current needs and wishes.

Consider Small Additions that Will Change your Experience

When thinking about an ideal master bathroom, the characteristics that come to mind are functional, luxurious and soothing. The truth is the master bathroom has become the calmest place in your home for a quiet retreat where you can unwind at the end of the day. One addition worth discussing with your chosen Calgary home builder ―and that doesn't have to be very costly― is adding a custom shower. There are many options for custom showers, but the most popular are overhead rainfall showerheads, body jets, and steam showers. Any of these picks will create a spa-like environment and provide a relaxing time.

Avoid Moving your Plumbing

Plumbing is another huge reason to work with an experienced builder and designer for your bathroom renovation. There are some revamping details that we can all do by ourselves at home, but plumbing is another story and only certified professionals should be dealing with it. As experienced Calgary infill home builders, we strongly advise you to avoid including any plumbing moving in your design if your plumbing is in the right conditions. If you don't move any plumbing, you will be able to save costs significantly. Talk to your custom home builder to evaluate the possibility of leaving your good plumbing right where it is and of adapting your design to this original location.
