Has the cost of renovations kept you from tackling your bathroom remodel project? It’s very understandable but it doesn’t have to be that way. There are many smart choices you could make that would help you save on your bathroom remodel project. Here are four to start the ball rolling.
Don’t Change The Size
The first thought that you might have for your bathroom remodel is to actually change the size of the bathroom. Think very carefully about this. This could actually turn out to be one of the most expensive aspects of your renovation and should be avoided at all costs. The reason is that anytime you have to plumbing, especially sewer pipe plumbing, you’re going to see your budget skyrocket. This plan you can do even in a small space. After all, it’s not as if you need to really stretch out your bathroom.
If you do want to make extra space by knocking down a wall without change plumbing, then just make sure this isn’t a load bearing wall. That can cause all kinds of expensive headaches.
Go Beyond the Big Box Stores
As you look for things like tubs, countertops, vanities and other items for your bathroom remodel go beyond the big box stores. Although they may sometimes have good deals you might discover that you’re finding better deals on Craigslist or at overstock places. Look at salvage yards for old tubs that can be refinished and used remnants for granite countertops. That can all add up to big savings.
Stick With the Shower Curtain
Although a glass-enclosed shower may look elegant it’s also very expensive. You could replace the tiling around your shower and bring in a clean shower curtain on a curved rod. It’s a great way to add a dash of color personality to your bathroom.
Do Your Own Demolition
A bathroom remodel will probably require a contractor and professional crew to do the detail work. But you could do a lot of the “grunt” work and save on crew costs. That includes the demolition.
