Easy Steps For Bathroom Remodeling In A Budget
Like many other parts of our homes, our bathrooms would also wear out through time. And the longer you postpone a bathroom remodeling project, the greater the costs will be. But considering the changes that you need to make, you will surely have to save quite an amount of money.
If you want a bathroom that will be admired by anyone who sees it but you have limited budget, the following easy steps may help you remodel your bathroom in a budget.
1. Utilize immediate resources for your bathroom remodeling inspiration
Before you actually start to remodel your bathroom, it would save you a lot of dollars if you already know how you wanted it to look. It is important to be able to specifically define what changes to make, which fixtures to maintain and replace, and whether you want additional space.
If you want that celebrity feel to your bathroom, you don’t have to hire an interior designer. You can achieve that amazing look for your bathroom by simply getting inspiration and design ideas to your immediate resources: the internet and home and lifestyle magazines. A great bathroom look is not as difficult to achieve as with the master bedroom or the family room. You can create and design that look from pictures on the web or on magazines.
2. Draw a highly functional layout
If you want to really change the look of your bathroom, you will also have to change its layout. And when redesigning your bathroom’s layout, be sure to prioritize function over design. You’ll want your bathroom to be both stylish and functional. Also, make sure your new bathroom layout complies with all state and city codes.
3. Go for high quality flooring
In a bathroom remodel, changing the flooring is almost always included. There are various types of flooring that you could consider for your new bathroom: tiling, laminate, special wood flooring, vinyl, bamboo, or cork. The type of flooring you choose may depend on the overall design of your bathroom. But again, you want to go for functionality over style. In choosing your flooring, you want to make sure that it will hold under constant humidity and getting wet.
4. Choose beautiful and durable counter tops, tub, and shower
If you have decided to change your counter tops, tub, and shower, make sure you choose highly durable replacements that would match the overall design of your bathroom. You can choose from a wide variety of counter top options such as marble, granite, and natural stones, while there are many various designs for tubs and showers including personalized ones.
5. Don’t forget the lighting
Lighting does not only help make your bathroom more functional; it also helps set the overall mood and feel of your bathroom. For many people, a bathroom may be an area of relaxation and de-stressing. Choosing the right and appropriate lighting and placing them at complimentary angles in your bathroom may actually help make it look extraordinary!
6. Accessorize and add fixtures
To get the look you want and bring it all together, it only takes adding a few accessories and fixtures. You don’t have to buy expensive tiles or lighting for your bathroom. Sometimes, all you need would be that little trinkets that would bring out the design you have put together in the first place.
7. Look for appropriate contractor to work with
Once everything is set, you’ll need to start looking for a contractor to work with. Sure, you can do most of the bathroom remodeling yourself and you’ll save a lot more money when you do it yourself. Despite this, having a contractor help you would actually ensure the remodel is completed professionally and with utmost quality. Plus, this would save you subsequent repairs in the future. And you don’t have to worry because there are actually a lot of affordable contractors in any state that provides high quality services. You’ll just need to spend time in looking for the right contractor.
Bathroom remodeling is not an easy task. It could get costly especially if you’ve postponed this project for some time now or if you want to get that “celebrity” look for your bathroom. Hopefully these steps will help you save money in remodeling your bathroom.
