5 Secrets to Creating Your Dream Bathroom on a Budget

0

Designing a dream bathroom sounds great, but it’s not always financially possible. After all, materials and labor add up quickly. To make sure that your budget stretches as far as possible, you’re going to need to make smart choices. Below are listed out the places you can cut corners as well as the places you should spend big.

Get Creative with Tile

Two Tone Bathroom Tile
Compared to other bathroom material options, tile can be pretty cheap. While tile is beautiful, versatile, durable, and affordable, many homeowners fail to realize the product’s full potential. To get the most out of your purchase, use alternating colors to create a trim, put a unique pattern on your bathroom floor, or add a bit of pop with a contrasting grout.

Look at What You Can Reuse

It’s possible that components in your existing bathroom can be reused. A bathtub, for example, can be reglazed at a fraction of the cost of a new one. However, please don’t reuse water wasting fixtures or toilets; the saved money on your utility bill will offset the cost of new ones.

Skip Shower Doors

If you don’t have the space, then find a bold shower curtain instead. Make sure to match the shower curtain’s hardware to your bathroom fixtures.

Don’t Buy Mirrors from Big Box Stores
