So you need to remodel your bathroom. You know it, your family knows it, and anyone who has visited your home and used the bathroom knows it. But that doesn’t mean you have a limitless budget with which to take on the project. So how can you complete bathroom remodeling without blowing your savings or taking out a huge loan you can’t afford? Here are a few tips to help you save money on your bathroom remodeling project:
Make A Plan Before Starting Your Bathroom Remodeling
It is always smart to start bathroom remodeling projects with a thought-out plan. You might want to work with a designer to get things going in the right direction. Although it’ll cost you to hire a designer to help you bring your ideas to life, you’ll likely end up with the bathroom you want and have an idea of what your budget will be. Keep in mind that having a realistic timeline and budget can help set all this into motion. Having that plan will prevent you from making expensive errors later on in the process.
Dress Up Your Mirror
You can dress up an average mirror by finding a fantastic frame to go around it. It’s creative and cost-effective to hang a frame around your mirror. The frame will also hide wear and tear that can happen to mirrors over time, like flaking around the edges. This gives the bathroom remodeling job an updated look without having to change out the mirror or pay for expensive hanging costs.
Give Your Toilet An Updated Look
Instead of replacing the whole toilet, you might want to consider just replacing the seat and lid. If the toilet works and isn’t hideous, you can give it a fresh look without buying a new unit. This will save you on the cost of the toilet as well as plumber installation fees.
Work With What You Got
If you really just wanted an updated bathroom, but don’t mind how the layout is, you can save a ton of money by leaving all of the plumbing items where they are. Moving plumbing around is a huge expense and there are more things you can do with the style of your bathroom in its current layout.
Hit the salvage yard, resale stores, and vintage shops to look for the right items. You can find light fixtures, sinks, vanities, and anything else that can spruce up a bathroom. These items are unique and can save you money over buying something brand new.
