The bathroom is not the room that typically receives the most attention in conversation, but all of that can change with a new look. When it comes time to get started on that bathroom remodeling project, you want everything to look its best without spending tons of cash. Here are some helpful tips to make the task easier.
Some bathrooms are small in size thus leaving little room for change in the setup of the arrangement, but still there is room for improvement. Other bathrooms are sizable and can easily be changed due to the spacious environment, but cost must be considered when making drastic changes.
New toilets and tubs will quickly transform a dull bathroom into dazzling. Fancy fixtures can add some pizzazz, as well.
Compare prices for the best deal. Although large chains such as Lowe’s or Home Depot can seem to be fabulous for selection and price, there are other options available. It is possible to find excellent deals at specialty stores, local lumber yards, and even department stores like Wal-Mart. Don’t always sacrifice quality for a good price. You may get a terrific faucet from Wal-Mart that is comparable to the quality at Lowe’s, but this probably won’t be the cheapest faucet on the shelf.
If you have a large area for a counter and vanity, you may want to steer clear of the traditional double sink variety from the store. There are alternative ideas that can save some money. First, consider how badly you want double sinks. If you really desire the comfort and convenience, then go for it. But, if you aren’t that interested in the extra sink, you can still enjoy the counter space without paying for the extra faucet and plumbing.
It may be less expensive to purchase standard countertop and put in a drop-in sink. This idea can also be very beneficial if your remodeling project does not have standard placement of the sink.
Instead of purchasing a large vanity cabinet, have you considered using two smaller vanities? This idea works especially well with the countertop suggestion. You can even space the vanities together or separately for a customized look. Try using two smaller vanities like his and hers at opposite ends of the counter. In the center, leave the area beneath the countertop open. This area is perfect for storing your plunger or a waste basket. This offers room for storage and personalized areas without the added expense of a large, cumbersome vanity.
Instead of using large glass shower doors, try using a shower curtain. The glass doors are not only heavy, but expensive. In addition, they can be difficult to clean. Shower curtains are relatively inexpensive, easy to clean, and are extremely versatile.
There are so many excellent ideas to make a fabulous bathroom within a reasonable budget during a remodeling project. Compare prices to get the best bargain. Trying new ideas to cut cost may even provide you a customized look you’ll love.
