The reason you’re remodeling can help you when making the decisions regarding your bathroom remodel. If you’re remodeling with the ultimate goal of selling your home, the decisions shouldn’t be as personal because you won’t be living there. Whether you are living in the home after or selling, you can do a few things to make sure you’re getting the best value for the money you have.
You don’t have to choose the fanciest tile in the store. If you happen to absolutely love a certain tile, don’t use it on the entire bathroom. Use an inexpensive option for the majority of the design and utilize the gorgeous but expensive option for accents. There is actually a lot of tile that you can get out there for a great deal. All you have to do is take the time to find it.
One of the biggest changes you can make to the bathroom for very little money is painting. Even just adding a bright color to one wall can add a really great and unique look for cheap. Also, for just a few gallons of paint, you can get a very different bathroom that will make a huge impact. If the bathroom is dark, lighten it with the paint color. A small bathroom could benefit from a light paint color while a large bathroom might feel cozier with a darker color.
Updated fixtures is another way to remodel the bathroom with budget in mind. A beautiful room, whether it’s the kitchen or the bathroom, comes down to the finishing details. The fixtures can bring a spa-like experience to the space for not a lot of money.
A new vanity that maximizes the bathroom’s floor space can make it feel like an entirely new room. If you buy a great-looking dresser or vintage table, you could modify it to be used as a vanity. This might save you hundreds on your bathroom remodel.
Redo the Layout
While the above will give you a new look to your bathroom, you might need to adjust the layout. Some bathrooms don’t work in their current layout, and in that case, you’ll need a professional like Bishop Plumbing, Heating and Cooling to move plumbing fixtures. They can help you design the best layout for the space too.
Buy Upcycled or Used
When choosing the large pieces for your bathroom remodel, try buying used or upcycled pieces online or at your local vintage or thrift store. This will give you a statement piece that won’t cost as much as one purchased new at a home improvement store.
You can save thousands on your remodel by making smart choices with the fixtures or allowing a professional to give you advice. Remodeling is well worth the time and effort, but luckily there are so many ways to make it easier than you would think. Then after a solid remodeling like this you can just sit back, relax and enjoy your new home.
