Design Packages and Your Remodeling Budget

Design Packages

Every type of remodeling project needs a budget. Determining a budget for your project is not as easy as one would think. FirstMN Remodeling Design and Budgeting you need to separate your needs and wants for your remodel.

For example, you may need a bigger shower for your master bathroom. However, you may also want a master shower with multiple shower heads, bench, etc.

To help you in determining your budget, you must think of your remodel as a package. You may have heard of the good, better, best theory. Another way I like to think of this is as premier, deluxe, and basic packages.

The cost for your project will come down to the scope of work. The greater the scope of work, then the more the cost will be. Do not approach your remodel telling yourself you can save money on fixtures, or buying discounted items. Labor will be the largest percentage of the overall cost.

Premier (Best)

  • Detailed measurements, design, along with 3-d renderings
  • Complete demolition of the space to be remodeled
    • In most cases drywall and flooring is removed down to the framing and sub-floor
  • Relocation and/or addition of mechanical items
    • Moving plumbing fixtures
    • Adding/moving a gas line
    • Adding/moving venting
    • Adding/moving electrical fixtures
      • Lights
      • Outlets
      • Switches
    • New flooring
    • Custom cabinetry
    • Design assistance
    • Permit to be obtained by the builder

Deluxe (Better)

  • Detailed measurements, and a floor plan
  • Strategic demolition of the space to be remodeled
    • Limited drywall and flooring will be removed
  • Mechanical items to remain in same location
  • New flooring
  • Semi-custom cabinetry
  • Design Assistance
  • Permit to be obtained by the builder
  • Options will be available to upgrade select items such as flooring, cabinetry, lighting, and etc.

Basic (Good)

  • Detailed measurements, and a floor plan

  • Mechanical items to remain in same location
  • Semi-custom cabinetry or cabinet re-facing
  • Permit to be obtained by homeowner

The difference in these packages comes down to the scope of work and who is completing the work. These packages and/or theories apply to all remodeling projects including: kitchens, bathrooms, basements, and home additions.
