Perhaps the most common remodel project home owners undertake is the small bathroom update.
If you’re like most home owners, the cost of your remodel affects your decision making process. Your dream bathroom need not cost a fortune. The key is prioritizing value and allowing it to take precedence over the schedule and maybe over the quality of the materials you decide to have installed.
Your initial consideration should be your design, which includes space utilization, materials, colors, and patterns. Although this next comment may seem strange when remodeling on a budget, but a good designer can actually save you money. I’ve seen this.
You spend maybe $500 for three hours of consultation, and because of things you learn you save more than $500 elsewhere on the project. Consider this.
If you’re planning to buy your cabinets and fixtures at the Home Depot or Lowes, consider making use of their design services. They provide them at no cost in hopes you buy your cabinets at their store.
Another very practical tip is to accumulate your materials over time, when you find great bargains. As you find items you think are perfect, buy them and store them in your garage. Once you have ALL the materials you need (cabinets, flooring, counters, sinks, faucets, mirrors, EVERYTHING) then you schedule the remodel.
When you start your bathroom remodel without having all your stuff ready to go, you wind up making purchases in a hurry. When you do this you lose your ability to shop around for a bargain.
