4 Money-Savings Tricks When Remodeling Your Bathroom

 

Have you noticed that when you own a home, the list of improvements never seems to end? What starts out as a new piece of furniture turns into two new pieces, then three! Next thing you know, you a have a new living room, new paint, new carpet and a hefty bill.

Redesigning areas in your home doesn't have to break the bank, and, if done properly, can actually be quite affordable. Take a look at some ideas for remodeling your bathroom that won't cost you an arm and a leg - especially if you decide to do the work yourself! 

1. Tile Work

Tile work can be very expensive. When you take into consideration the cost of a contractor to lay new tile, the cost of labor alone can be high. Consider limiting the amount of tile in your bathroom by focusing on high-impact areas such as the floor. Tiling the walls will significantly drive up the bill.

Another way to limit the expense of tile work is to use a less expensive tile design. The flashier the tile, the more expensive it will be. Consider only using the more expensive tile as accent pieces alongside less expensive ones. You'll be able to save some money while still incorporating some sections of expensive tile. 

2. Counter Tops

Trending bathroom designs usually include granite or marble countertops. Since the size of most bathroom countertops tends to be smaller in comparison to kitchen counters, the cost seems small already. To save even more, consider looking at various color choices and slabs with imperfections.

Granite pieces that are neutral in color are more popular, which means they are also going to be more expensive. Consider alternative colors that will still look nice, but that you hadn't previously considered.

3. A Fresh Coat

A great way to give your bathroom a new look without spending a lot of money is by giving it a fresh coat of paint, re-caulking the lines around the tub and sink and cleaning the grout between your tiles. You'll be surprised how these three things will spruce up your bathroom and keep money in your pocket.

4. Fixture Updates

Consider updating the bathroom's light fixtures, racks and drawer hardware. While these changes may seem small or insignificant, they can make a huge difference to the look and feel of your bathroom. Keep in mind that you don't have to buy top-of-the-line fixtures; in fact, there are several companies that make designs similar to more expensive brands for a fraction of the cost.

Reviving the look and feel of your bathroom doesn't have to be a total overhaul. By making our suggested changes, you can refresh the look of your bathroom and use the money you've saved toward your next remodel project. Be creative and have fun with it!
