If you’re starting in on any home improvement project, your first concern is probably cost. After all, projects like custom bathroom renovation are expensive, right? It turns out, you may have some great, budget-friendly options available to cut down on those costs and get the renovated bathroom that you want, for a price you can afford.
Some Cost-saving Ideas that you Can Consider
When it comes to lining the walls of your bathroom, tiles are the cheapest, most easily maintained option. Tiling is less expensive and more durable than wood by far, and can be combined with tongue and groove boards or other wooden accents to create a great atmosphere. Drywall can be added to the tiling to create a smooth, seamless look. With tiles, you can take comfort in how durable and moisture-resistant your walls will be; they eliminate the need to periodically renovate your bathroom. Your new look will last for decades!
Beyond just the walls of your new bathroom, tiles are also a superior material for bathroom flooring. You can select a tile pattern to match the walls, and make sure to note the exact measurements of your floor to avoid buying more tiles than you need. Combining multiple colors of tiles is a great way to add character to your flooring. Consider a combination of black, white and antique tile styles to accompany your white tiled walls.
Installing a Vanity
Vanities are the essential bathroom renovation; they organize all of your toiletries and keep the entire bathroom looking tidy. If you’ve added black floor tiling in your renovation, you can breathe new life into an old, worn-out vanity by refinishing it in a darker charcoal hue. You can replace the old knobs with new nickel-finished knobs that match your bathroom-tissue dispenser and towel rack.
Liven Up That Countertop
Invest in some quality LED lights to brighten up the areas of your bathroom where you most need light, especially around the mirror. You can also consider replacing your mirror to match the new arrangement of lights. Replacing your faucet with an updated style to match the mirror and lights can create a harmonious environment for your updated bathroom.
Hire a Professional
Many people will consider attempting the renovations on their own to save a few bucks. After all, why pay for fees and labour when you could just slap those tiles down yourself? It must be cheaper in the end, right?
Think again! For many renovation jobs, a quality professional contractor can do the work in less time, and with better results. Professionals bring the experience and skill necessary to avoid costly mistakes and wasted time. They can also make suggestions for what will work best in your bathroom, specifically.
