The kitchen and bathrooms, without a doubt, are the most functional spaces in any house. You can’t do without either. But if both these spaces are outdated and require remodeling at the same time, which one should you remodel first?
Ideally, we suggest that you should remodel both simultaneously if you do have the budget. Sounds overwhelming, right? It probably is a bit overwhelming, as most large-scale projects are. But tackling the two projects at the same time has its fair share of advantages that makes the stress worth it.
It Could Cost You A Lot Less
When you’re taking on two projects simultaneously, there are tons of opportunities to cut costs. From labor costs to material, renovation projects can be costly. So, you’d want to save where you can.
Hiring a contractor for two projects being done simultaneously might mean that they’ll charge a slightly smaller fee as they’re saving time and also saving up on transportation and labor fee.
Additionally, you’ll be able to save costs on the material by ordering similar pieces for both projects. Or, even by ordering from the same supplier, not only would the supplier give you a better price for a more significant purchase, but you’ll also save up on the transportation cost for moving the material.
It’s A Quicker Process
This may be harder to understand but hear us out. Suppose your kitchen takes about two weeks to get done, and the bathroom takes nearly the same time. That’s four weeks of noise, disturbance, and dust if you do the projects separately.
However, if you have the spaces remodeled simultaneously, the contractor and labor can divide up the work and manage time better, enabling them to complete both projects sooner. For instance, all the material could be selected and delivered for both projects on the same day, while leaving one project for the future means going through the entire selection process again.
These two spaces are undoubtedly a significant consideration when you decide to sell your house. Not only do they need to be in excellent condition to get a good price, but having both spaces updated carrying a similar vibe can really be a cherry on top for certain buyers.
Additionally, it’s worth keeping in mind that the kitchen and the bathrooms are used almost the same amount in any house. And by remodeling them at the same time, you’re streamlining future renovations as the material, and the design features will age simultaneously.
But if you’re remodeling both spaces simultaneously, it’s crucial to hire the right contractor because the combined project carries twice the risk.
