How long have you been dreaming of an amazing bathroom? Maybe this is the summer you’ll finally make that dream a reality. Taking on a bathroom remodel probably isn’t as disruptive as a kitchen remodel especially if you have another bathroom in the house. But that doesn’t mean you won’t face challenges. That is especially true when it comes to budgeting. You can still have an amazing bathroom without it costing a fortune. Here are some great ways to save money on your bathroom remodel:
Hire a Designer
Hiring a designer for your bathroom might seem like an added expense but it is money well spent. If you can work out a detailed plan with your designer to include a timeline, budget and the actual the core, then you’ll be ahead of the game. This plan will become your “map” that you will need to stick to throughout the project. It’s much better than making up things as you go along.
Don’t Move Around the Plumbing
It took a lot of effort to get those bathroom pipes where they are. You don’t need to move around the plumbing. Even if you’re knocking out walls to make more space you can still leave all your fixtures right where they are. Rerouting pipes could cost you several thousand dollars. Is it really worth it considering the limited amount of space you have?
Frame a Huge Mirror
Many bathroom mirrors are tiny and attached to medicine cabinets. That won’t cut it for your dream bathroom. You can buy a builder grade mirror and surround it with a terrific frame at a fraction of the cost of a huge hanging mirror that you would get at a high-end to interior design store. In a bathroom, the bigger the mirror the better.
Replace the Seat and Lid
Upgrading your bathroom might have you thinking about replacing the toilet. But when you get right down to it, a toilet is a toilet. What you can do is replace the seat and lid to your current toilet. Plenty of options that are all standard.
Do Your Own Demolition
A large part of any remodeling project is the demolition. In a bathroom remodel that can involve taking down cabinets, pulling up linoleum and busting up tiles.
