No matter how good your bathroom is when you first obtain your house or apartment, it will inevitably need to be remodeled. While it is possible to spend thousands of dollars on remodeling a bathroom in order to get the best of the best and spare no expense, it is also just as possible to remodel a bathroom while spending very little money on the remodeling project.
When remodeling a bathroom, there are several things that you should keep in mind that will make it far easier to save money and should help you with avoiding unforeseen expenses. First of all, you need to have an idea of what such a remodel will cost if everything goes according to plan. This will enable you to have a base estimate of expenses to plan from and can serve as a good starting point.
Avoid moving plumbing
The second thing is that, whenever possible, you should avoid moving your plumbing when remodeling as moving plumbing often results in the expenses for your remodel skyrocketing. While it may seem simple to move your sink or toilet during a remodel, the complications involved in having to relocate plumbing for such a thing can lead to significant increases in the project’s cost.
Be honest about your skills
The third thing to keep in mind is that you need to be as brutally honest as possible with yourself about your DIY skills. If you are especially skilled in some aspect of bathroom remodeling then you could save a lot of money from not having to hire a professional. On the other hand, if you are terrible at some part of it and screw up the remodel then you will have to pay a professional to both do that aspect of the remodel and fix your mistakes which can end up being rather expensive.
The next thing you should keep in mind is that you should always plan ahead. Having a specific plan for what you want to remodel, how things should look and what materials you are going to use can both help to keep costs down and enable you to move through the project quickly since you will know most of what you need to do ahead of time.
Refinish, don’t replace
Finally, consider refinishing existing items like your bathtub, shower, sink or toilet instead of ripping them out and replacing them with something new. Refinishing will only cost you a small fraction of what a replacement would and will be finished much faster than a total replacement, saving you a great deal of time as well.
