Your bathroom is a special place in the home. Hygiene is so important, and how comfortable and good you feel in your bathroom will directly dictate how much time you want to spend in there. If it’s clean, beautiful, and luxurious, you’ll naturally want to spend more time caring for and pampering yourself.
That’s why bathroom redesigns are so critical, but they can also be expensive. If you want to breathe new life into your bathroom, but are tight on funds, then use these top tips to help you keep your costs down.
One of the biggest costs in bathroom redesigns happens when you change the layout. So long as all the pipes remain in the same place they always were, you’ll have immediately cut down on your costs. By avoiding those costly changes, you can then focus your budget instead on aesthetic updates that are going to make the biggest impact.
Note, this also applies to your lights. Your lights would otherwise require electricians to come in and change the wiring setup to relocate your lights, so if you’re happy enough with where they currently are, then you’ll have already saved.
If your bathtub, sink, and toilet are all fine in terms of design, consider keeping them. These are big-budget items that will immediately skyrocket the cost of your bathroom remodel. Plain options can really be dressed up by changing out the taps, floors, walls and so on.
DIY can cost more than paying a professional. Why? Simple! If you don’t do a good enough job, then your DIY bathroom remodel can end up causing flooding, wood rot, and so much more. Then you not only have the repairs to pay for, but you’ll also need to bring in an expert to do the job right the second time. To save yourself those costs, hire us, your favourite bathroom specialists in Bedfordshire the first time around.
You don’t have to get all of your bathroom redesigns done at once. You can have the pros come in and change out the floors and then wait and save up for them to change out your sink. By breaking up your design, you can make the entire process more affordable. Do keep in mind, of course, that quotes don’t last forever. Waiting may mean that the labour or material costs go up (or both).
There are sales for everything, from tiles to tubs and even to fittings. You can wait for these sales and then snag yourself a deal or two to help lower your costs. It’s a good idea to buy your dream tiles when they are on sale or even buy them as a reclaimed material to help you save. You can get the tiles or tub first, store them, and then save up for the fitting. There are so many ways that you can save on the materials; you just need to have time and patience.
