05 Oct Budget-friendly Ideas for A Bathroom Remodel
Are you planning to remodel your bathroom? Remodeling is a big project, and when it’s not done correctly, you may go out of budget. However, it’s not a necessity to have so much space or spend so much to remodel your bathroom. To help you out, here are five budget-friendly ideas for your next stylish bathroom makeover:
1) Create a Cost-effective Design
When you design your own bathroom, chances are, while doing so, you’ll be calculating the costs already in your head. Look for good bathroom layouts and get some basic bathroom design guidelines to help you out. Creating a cost-effective design that covers all aspects of the bathroom that you want ensures that you are in control of how the outcome would be, and you can also stay within your budget.
2) Look for Alternatives
Reusing existing materials will cut down on remodeling costs. However, if you really want to change materials for your walls and floors, you can browse for inexpensive alternatives that can look similar to what you originally wanted.
3) Keep Your Bathtub
If you want to save costs, you have two options: touch up or refinish your tub. If your bathtub has some visible imperfections such as peeling paint, nicks, and such, you can simply have it spot-fixed. The second option, refinishing, which is typically done to repair and retain your bathtub, focuses on cosmetic problems such as a yellowed surface, cracks, nicks, etc. Instead of replacing your bathtub, having your bathtub refinished can make it look better, while keeping it below your budget.
4) Install New Hardware
Installing a new faucet can make your sink look new without replacing the entire sink or vanity. The same way goes for the hardware on cabinets, you can replace them so you can save hassle and costs rather than buying and installing new ones.
5) Remodel – Don’t Renovate Major Plumbing
While remodeling might tempt you to also do major renovations such as moving major plumbing, you should resist the urge. You don’t need to move the plumbing especially when they’re already sufficiently serving their purpose. Besides, moving water supply or drainage will make your remodeling project more expensive.
The bathroom can be considered the home’s smallest area. However, it’s no secret that a well-decorated one can increase the value of your home and make it a more comfortable place to do your business in.
While choosing a Do-It-Yourself bathroom remodel might seem appealing, keep in mind that these usually end up having you spend more than your budget. You can get an elegant, well-styled bathroom on a budget when you hire professionals to do it for you.
