How To Renovate Your Bathroom On A Budget
Bathroom renovations are an excellent way to invest in your property. An updated bathroom can potentially add between 4% to 5% to the value of your home, and in addition, you will have an attractive, functional bathroom that works well and makes you feel great.
However, we understand that high prices can be a major killjoy. We at EPI Renovations believe you can have the home of your dreams without breaking the bank. So you do not get overwhelmed, we have made a guide to renovating your bathroom on a budget.
1. Shop around
There are a plethora of options available for you to update worn-out or dated bathrooms. You can choose from a variety of plumbing finishes, between a tub and shower combination vs. a stand-alone shower, and between prefab or custom vanities. So, shopping for products that meet your standard and budget requirements is wise. You can also visit local thrift stores. Who knows, you might find a refinished pedestal sink or claw-foot bathtub while you’re at it.
2. Use alternatives to bathroom tiles for flooring
If you want to update your bathroom floor without tiling it, which is generally expensive, you should consider using the Luxury vinyl option (tile or plank). Unlike tiles, each one is easy to install and can accommodate smaller budgets.
3. Forego luxury items
Luxury items such as heated floors, backlit mirrors, etc., can be avoided. Fancy fixtures can also be ignored for simple yet functional alternatives when renovating your bathroom on a budget. Basic lighting fixtures vs. dimmable light fixtures, a simple walk-in shower vs. an enclosed shower area, and regular towel rails rather than heated ones are good ideas when working with a tight budget.
4. Save wherever you can
To achieve maximum savings, you will have to do your own demolition, painting, etc. Of course, you should take care not to overestimate the extent of your skills. Only take on tasks that you are confident of completing successfully. If in doubt, refer to an instruction guide on the topic and preferably consult with an experienced renovation professional.
A final word of advice
Some designers and consultants can deliver a luxurious bathroom but flounder when it comes to budget constraints. Similarly, a bathroom that is not attractive and looks cheap is not the desired outcome. So, finding the right bathroom renovation expertise is critical to the success of your project.
