Bathrooms on a Budget

Wait! Before you renovate (Read this!):

The amount of time you spend in your master bathroom is often pre-determined by what it looks like. Besides the kitchen, the bathroom is the most important part of a house. Depending on what your bathroom budget is, you’ll be surprised at all the money-saving things that you can do, and trends that you can implement, to reinvent the look of yours.

Some people want to renovate because they want to update the look of their bathroom. Others renovate to improve the flow of their bathroom, or to fix a problem – anything from leaks and mould, to ineffective flow, and lack of power outlets.

When you’re demoing a master bathroom, there’s a good chance you’re going to change the layout to something more functional. That’s where added costs come from – getting new tile, tub, vanity and faucets.

There are lots of current trends / changes to consider, as well:

Plumbing:

Switch from bathtub-shower to full standup shower

Switch from bathtub-shower to shower and separate freestanding bathtub

Washlet (toilet seat-bidet combo)

Space-saving and space-enhancing: Standup shower and mirrors

Electrical:

Additional outlets for hair dryer, curling iron, phone charger

Heated towel racks to keep towels warm and dry

 

Heating:

Toilet seats

Washlet (toilet seat-bidet combo)

Towel bars/racks

Floor

A glass shower surround is a cirsp, clean look
Elements: Floating shower shelf, mirror, washlets, tub

Design:

Vanity

Make-up table

Porcelain tile

Mirrors

Shower glass surround with a custom glass shower door.

Sinks

Tub

 

Before you buy that soaker or claw foot tub, rethink your reinvention. The materials you choose for decorative elements, such as mirrors, sinks, floors, and tub fixtures can range, tremendously, in price. There are lots of products that look the part, but aren’t budget-breaking. Look for sales and ask the right questions and your bathroom could look as good as new.
