Cost-Effective Bathroom Remodeling
The tips provided here were developed as a bathroom planning assistance to those who are working with a shoestring budget.
- No tiled shower. A fiberglass shower unit will save you several thousands of dollars.
- Keep the existing floor plan as it is.
- Keep your existing flooring or change to the LVT flooring material.
- Keep the vanities & tops.
- If shower tile is a must consider doing the walls in a large format tile. Be careful here though. When staggering these large tiles creating the subway/brick joint look, lippage will occur. As a resolution, consider lining up the grout lines.
Note: Any of these design elements mentioned above are sometimes not something that can remain in the new design. It all depends on other elements of your new design that are a must. Also, keep in mind that when looking to do partial replacements, the finished project could return and un-balanced look of the old and the new combined.
