Money saving tips for your Bathroom Remodel


Money saving tips for your Bathroom Remodel club drive master

  • The best place to start with any remodeling project is the budget. Not only will it have a big impact on the type of materials you select for your bathroom renovation, it will also help you set the boundaries of your design. Knowing your budget before you have to suffer a broken heart when you can’t buy that fixture you have been eyeing, will save you in the long run.


  • Going "green" is not only good for the environment; it’s also good for you. Green products have great design, tend to function better, which lowers utility bills, and they’re also chemical-free, making them better for your health. Having an eco-friendly approach to remodeling isn’t just about buying new products, doing something "green" can be as simple as painting a cabinet instead of tossing it in a landfill. Not to mention “Green” remodels are eligible for the HERO program. Ask us today about this amazing program.


  • Want to save some big bucks remodeling your bathroom? Consider refinishing the existing tub and sink, versus buying a brand new one. Refinishing may not be an option in every case, your design team will be able to access your current tub and sink.


  • Don't move your plumbing. On the surface, switching your sink and toilet around may look easy enough, but the problem lies underneath and all the costs involved in moving that plumbing. A remodel and design team will be able to keep your existing layout, without boring you with the same old bathroom you are tired of.
  • DIY bathroom remodels end up costing you more than you expect. Our advice is to leave the remodeling to the professionals who do this kind of work every day.


  • Changing out all the hardware, such as drawer pulls, faucet handles and shower heads, can make a big impact. Small cosmetic changes will save you money and help give you a new looking bathroom.


  • Don't underestimate the importance of lighting in a bathroom. Sconce lighting at the vanity is the ideal way to get even lighting on your face, and installing it at eye level will help diminish unflattering shadows. Dim lighting is nice for a relaxing bath; bright lights are great for shaving or applying makeup. Adding more overall lighting can make a small bathroom seem larger.


  • Ventilation. Ventilation. Ventilation. Moisture is your bathroom’s greatest enemy. Mold and mildew will make quick work of any renovation you’ve done so be sure to install a vent fan of appropriate CFMs for the square footage of your bathroom. The rough guide is one CFM per square foot for bathrooms of one hundred square feet or smaller. New designs are quieter and more stylish than ever and are a must have for any bathroom remodel; they even have stereo speaker ventilation systems.
