Saving money when renovating your bathroom
When remodeling your bathroom, it is difficult to stay within your budget. As a result of so many choices, you’re likely to spend more than you intended. Making use of your creative mind and applying smart design techniques will allow you to cut spending on bathroom renovations.
Don’t move the plumbing
Always try to design your bathroom around keeping sinks, toilets, and showers in the same place to avoid having to move your pipes. It is easier and less expensive to renovate a bathroom while keeping the plumbing in its place.
Upgrade the toilet seat
You might consider a makeover rather than a full upgrade if the porcelain on your current toilet is still in good shape. Consider replacing only the seat, lid, and handle in order to avoid replacing the toilet with an expensive new one.
Add a frame to your mirror
An easy and cheap way to transform the look of your bathroom is by framing your cost-effective mirror with a great looking frame rather than purchasing an expensive hanging mirror.
Make use of open shelves
Consider using open shelving as an alternative to buying all new shelving for your bathroom renovation. Open shelves are cheaper than closed storage because there is less material needed. Because you’ll be displaying your towels and bathroom accessories, you may want to choose towels and accessories that match your decor.
Find sales when you shop
You can find items for your new bathroom at garage sales, vintage and antique stores, and even on Facebook marketplace and Kijiji. This will save you a lot.
There’s no need to spend a lot of money on your next bathroom remodel. You can save money by cutting corners and getting creative. By following these tips and getting your design and budget ready, you’ll end up with the bathroom you’re looking for at a price you can afford.
