Lots of homeowners who are renovating their kitchen will do a bathroom at the same time, especially if they share a common wall. Why? Because when the kitchen walls are taken down to the bare studs, it exposes the plumbing and electrical for the adjacent bathroom, allowing for easy access.
You may be able to cut the cost of a bathroom renovation in half by doing it at the same time as the adjacent kitchen because you only have to pay once for demolition, plumbers, electricians, and other skilled workers. If you wait until later to redo the bathroom, you will have to pay twice for exposing and working in the same area.
Another reason to do both rooms at once is the inconvenience. Or minimizing it. When tradesmen are traipsing through your home to renovate your kitchen, it’s going to be disruptive to your family’s everyday life. Some homeowners even temporarily move out of their homes and stay at a long-term residency hotel or with relatives during this time.
But when you renovate both the kitchen and the bathroom at the same time, not only do you benefit from the construction cost savings but you also only have to go through the inconvenience once rather than twice. That alone often makes it worthwhile.
Getting a ‘Two-Fer’
Finally, doing two rooms at once means you get two brand new rooms rather than simply a kitchen. Imagine unveiling both your new kitchen and your updated bathroom to your friends, family, and neighbors. It’s going to be a good day that you will remember for a long time.
