Working with a designer or architect may seem like a pricey move right out of the gate for someone wanting to remodel their bathroom on a budget, but it is money well spent. Having a plan you’ve worked out with a professional will assure you that your design, budget and timeline are realistic, and it will give you a goal with a path to get there.
Use Professional Help
Hiring professionals to do things like installing new tubs and showers can help you to save money in the long run. They have first hand knowledge of how to install all your fixtures properly. You will not have to worry about leaks or water damage in the future. They can help to have the bathroom that you have always wanted at a price you can afford. It can be fun to find reasonable priced ways to upgrade your bathroom.
Bathroom remodeling can be an expensive process. But you do not have to do everything at once. You may really need new flooring, new counter tops, new cabinets, a new shower and tub but you can start off with a couple of thing and then add to your remodeling job later on.
Possibly Consider Doing the Grunt Work Yourself
To save money, you might consider doing the demolition yourself; you can even hold a demolition party to garner help from friends. Also compare buying the materials yourself. You can buy online or at discount stores to save money. Hire a professional to handle the hard parts, but do as much as you can yourself. Of course, you always want to leave any plumbing or extensive work that should only be done by professionals. Many people find out in the end that it’s just worth it time-wise and and money-wise to let the professionals do.
Stick To Your Budget
Know beforehand how much you can afford to spend and do not go over that budget limit. You will get many different options and sometimes that can be overwhelming. Although you want a bathroom of your dreams remember you can always add on to your bathroom remodel later on without overspending.
Stick With Your Current Layout
Moving lights or plumbing or putting in a window will cost more than sticking with the bathroom’s original layout. It doesn’t mean you can’t vary some areas, but pick and choose to avoid sticker shock. If you want to save money, just add new features to your current layout.
