When undergoing any renovation project, it is very easy to get carried away and exceed your budget. People are often presented with a plethora of options and it can be hard to navigate the design process.
However, this needn’t be the case, and we wanted to highlight some of the ways you can shave a few pounds of your bathroom renovation project by doing the design on a budget.
First, decide what kind of design you want. Are you going for a traditional bath or a modern take on the standard bath? Are you looking for a walk in shower or a shower and bath combo? Whatever style of bathroom you choose, try to choose a design that will fit in with your home’s decor.
Remember that walk in showers are usually less expensive than a shower and bath, due to the fact that a bath needs extra work and fittings. You can also save money on the sink and toilet by choosing the smaller more basic options.
Once you’ve decided on the design of your bathroom, you need to start shopping for the fixtures and accessories. This is where you can save a bit of money by choosing plain fixtures, so make sure you shop around. A good rule of thumb is to find something bold and inexpensive that fits in with the rest of the room.
Here’s some advice for those who have limited funds for a bathroom design: Shop online for your fixtures. Online they can generally be found at a lower price. When you shop for your bathroom accessories online, make sure to factor in the shipping and delivery charges.
Finally, the last step in any bathroom design is the assembling of it all. The labor costs involved can be expensive. If you have a bit of DIY experience, you can save a lot of money by stripping out your old bathroom yourself, like stripping out the tiles. Then your bathroom fitter can come in and take care of all the work without being charged for their time to strip it out.
Bathroom projects can have a lot of elements to them, but this doesn’t mean that they have to cost the earth. Think about looking for second hand items, and look for discounts where you can on sinks, showers and fittings to keep your bathroom within your budget.
