5 ways to save money on your bathroom remodel

Remodeling your bathroom can be just as exciting as it is nerve-wracking. Here are some key tips on how you can 

Everything starts with a plan 

Planning ahead saves you the time and the headache you might get from all the choices available out there. Hiring an architect or interior designer is worth the money, especially for big bathroom overhauls. If you’re adamant about planning it yourself, however, there are a lot of design resources online to use as reference and spark your creativity. 

Keep the plumbing where it is 

While you might be tempted to rebuild your layout from scratch, it’s a good idea to keep the layout of big fixtures like your toilet, sink, or shower as they’re connected to your home’s plumbing systems. 

The color goes a long way 

Even just changing the paint on your walls and furniture can have a big impact on updating your bathroom. Coordinate with your floor tiles and hardware such as the color of your floor tiles and even smaller details such as your faucet trimming, showerheads, toilet and sink material to make your bathroom design look cohesive. 

Consider open shelves 

While it might be tempting to keep your extra toiletries and miscellaneous objects in closed cabinets, open shelves make the room look less closed in and more spacious. Bathrooms have little space, open shelves remove the footprint that cabinet doors can take up and make it easier for you to access what you need. The drawback to open shelves is that you need to have a good system in place to keep your belongings organized 

Know where to splurge 

Knowing where to allocate the most of your budget can help you feel like you’ve got your money’s worth at the end. Spending a bit more on items that need to last such as your toilet, sink, bathtub, or shower, can help you save money on repairs and replacements in the long run.
