Condo living has been popular in Toronto for a while, at least since the 1980s. However, no one predicted or accounted for the recent surge in popularity. The condo market had a huge rise, leading people to either buy condos or sell the ones they own at jaw-dropping rates.
Whatever the reason for owning a condo, it’s always a good idea to get it renovated. A good place to start would be with a condo bathroom renovation. Let’s discuss why.
Is There Any Need To Renovate Your Bathroom?
There are multiple reasons why you could be opting for bathroom renovation. It could be a matter of renovating the entire condo space so it is ready to be handed to a new buyer. A condo that has been freshly renovated certainly brings in a higher resale price. Since you’re competing with other sellers, the renovation also gives you a chance to have a different design offering than others, which would ensure a sale.
More than anything though, it could be a matter of personal preference. There is a satisfaction to living in a home that’s catered entirely to your taste. You might think there’s no need to renovate a small bathroom if that’s the case, but there is more reason to do so. It will certainly make the rest of your day better if you walk into a brightly lit bathroom that’s been renovated uniquely to your preferences. You can increase storage options and make even cramped spaces feel better this way.
So, it’s not a matter of need as much as the benefits you get from a small condo bathroom renovation.
What Is The Cost Of A Condo Bathroom Renovation?
It is hard to estimate a cost for bathroom renovation due to the various factors that play into it. A unit can have bad piping, leaks, the material, and the overall scope of the work, which could increase the cost factor and make it harder to determine an overall cost.
Toronto Bath Centre offers a free consultation before renovation so you could get no obligation in home estimate or we invite you to visit out showroom and speak with us about your future renovation.
On average, the Toronto condo bathroom renovation costs touch $15,000. A standard 5’x8 might cost $15,000 and $18,000 for high-end. Luxury designs could amount to $22,000. Then, a large 14’x14’ might even touch the $40,000 mark for a luxurious renovation. To design a small bathroom that’s about 10’x10′, high-end could mean $30,000.
Overall, the price can range from $9,000 to $40,000, depending on how big the project happens to be.
What Requirements Need To Be Made While Making Plans For Renovating Your Condo Bathroom?
A condo bathroom renovation is different from any other renovation in a house because in that case, your decision only affects you and your family. For condos, floors, walls, and ceilings are still shared by other units in the apartment complex. Making big changes without their approval could be hard.
Before you plan a renovation project, you should read up on your ownership boundaries. Whether what you can change is only limited to the interior walls or exterior walls is of massive importance. Your condominium should have come with an ownership document, which would have these details.
Again, an experienced contractor is a huge factor in this case. You want someone who understands the regulations that come with owning a condominium. You need to look at how long they have been in the business and how strongly their service has been recommended. Only depending on the cost is never a good idea. If your contractor conducts some damage to a common shared space with other owners, you are the one who will end up paying the cost of it.
Some other requirements involve gaining an approval letter from the Board of Directors. Seeing whether you have parking and elevator access so the materials can be brought up without a fuss. Checking the working hours so you don’t disturb other condo owners and clean everything up by the end.
