â€œBathrooms sell houses.â€ We hear it all the time on TV and in magazines, but even if youâ€™re not interested in selling your house, we knowÂ that bathrooms also make houses. Whether youâ€™re thinking of redoing a small half-bath or the master bath, here are a few tips that will help you stay on budget â€” while still getting the bathroom of your dreams.
When HGTV is playing a marathon of Fixer Upper, the sudden urge to knock down a wall or start laying tile can quickly overcome even the strongest of us. But those impulsive remodeling projects can quickly turn into a disasterÂ when you hit an unexpected pipe or wire. When inspiration strikes, it can be tough to wait, but always plan ahead and meet with a contractor or electrician before you start any renovations.
Keep The Plumbing Where it is
Moving your toilet, sink, or bathtub is going to be extremely costly, sinceÂ all the pipe work underground will have to be redone. Put the money you would spend on rearranging your fixtures towards adding to the rooms overall design, like granite countertops or new shower doors.
Try Your Luck at a Tag Sale
You can find plenty of gently used furniture at a street sale. The money you save on your furniture can be put towards paint, wood stain, and other accessories to help you customize it to your liking.
Donâ€™t Assume You Need Tile
When weÂ think of bathroom flooring, one word usually comes to mind â€” tile. Tile is great because itâ€™s low maintenance and wonâ€™t succumb to water damage, but itâ€™s also expensive. Instead of tile, consider using bamboo or vinyl for the floors.
