One of the most expensive aspects of remodelling a bathroom is resizing it. However, an intelligent bathroom renovation design, rather than a complete makeover, can save you a lot of money.
Try sticking with the existing plan. It is possible that you are bored with the layout of your bathroom and want to transform it radically. Think twice because moving the sink, bathtub, toilet, or shower will need different plumbing, dramatically increasing labour and material costs! If you try and convince yourself to live with the current arrangement and design the bathroom renovation around the existing floor-plan, you will save money.
Use Tiles Wisely.
An attractive tile design will impart a striking look to your bathroom. However, you can use tiles sparingly and still have them make a big impression. Think a little out-of-the-box and use tiles in a single horizontal or vertical line or a crisscross pattern on flooring or walls. Then either paint the remaining area or use cheaper tiles for an enhanced visual design.
Economizing via Countertops.
Another most essential aspect of a beautiful bathroom is a countertop. Observation says that countertops’ most popular colours and designs are the most expensive. Why not opt for the striking ones among the wide range of less used hues and save money?
Countertops come in various designs, and there are a lot available with visual imperfections, which are quite cheaper than those with symmetrical designs. The best part about countertops is that a lot of the area will be covered under the sink and faucets. If the flawed area can be hidden with one of these, it hardly matters whether the design is inadequate.
Modify Instead of Replace.
Completely functional sinks, bathtubs, shower, faucets and toilet can be given an absolute face-lift without replacement. Talk with your contractor and find a way to incorporate re-finished equipment in your bathroom renovation design to avoid unnecessary expenses. Simply applying a fresh coat of paint on the cabinet or fitting a liner over your shower or bathtub can enhance their face value.
Cost-effective pre-fabricated showers are available in hordes of designs to make up for the urge of getting a tiled shower, which is more expensive. Being prudent and watching over these little nuances in a bathroom renovation design can spare you from redundant expenses.
You can save a lot of money if you keep the tips mentioned above in mind when renovating your bathroom. All you need is to think a little differently and to work closely with your contractor to make sure that he is implementing your cost-saving plans.
