Bathroom Remodeling Money Saving Tips
September 26, 2016
We are in the business of Bathroom Remodeling, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t help many of our homeowner customers build bathrooms on a budget. The great thing about working with a professional that cares as much as we do is that we know how to save money without sacrificing design and function. We love helping homeowners build amazing bathrooms whether money is no option or if they have a specific budget in mind. Here are our pro-tips on saving money on your next bathroom remodel.
Working with a bathroom designer like Bath Doctor may seem like it isn’t affordable, but it is money well spent because a designer will help you to build a plan, design, budget, and timeline. Having all of the puzzle pieces together will ensure that your project doesn’t run into unforeseen costs and issues.
Tired of Tile
There are many tile alternatives that can add a modern look and feel to your bathroom. Adding wood to walls instead of tile can save money as it is a cheap material by the square foot.
Lighting is one of the most dramatic things you can add to a bathroom, and also one of the cheapest as far as fixtures go. If you want the most bang for your buck, invest in builder-grade lighting to make your bathroom remodel dollars really count.
Don’t Move Plumbing Fixtures
If you are on a tight budget, plan to keep all plumbing fixtures where they are. In a bathroom renovation, using all the existing plumbing and pipes will save you big bucks. Moving a toilet, tub, or sink can also add to your final bill as those are costly to remove and relocate on the part of the designer.
The Power of Paint
If you are looking for a dramatic bathroom remodel but are on a budget, you can consider adding a bold paint color or texture to the bathroom walls. In the grand scheme of things, paint is inexpensive compared to other bathroom remodeling upgrades and can make a huge impact along with decor.
The best advice we can give is to decide on a budget and work with a professional that can help you stay within that budget. A pro can help you get the look and feel of a full priced remodel by saving time and money and investing your dollars wisely.
