Another cost-effective method is to buy the materials yourself and then hire the contractor to install them. Many designers offer a “design only” service, which means they will design the space; you just have to purchase the material and get a contractor to get the job done. Another method that can help you save money and reduce your bathroom remodeling cost is to have flexible expectations. This can mean, for example, choosing stock fixtures from local home improvement stores rather than custom pieces.
If you plan to replace your old fixtures and appliances such as cabinets, sinks, tubs etc. this will increase the bathroom remodel cost as you will need to purchase the new appliances and getting professionals to install them. You can, however, reduce costs by installing the equipment yourself. Plumbing and electrical. If you face any problems related to the plumbing or the electricity during your renovation, this will add more cost to your bathroom remodel. You might even have different professionals come to check, adding to more cost.
If you have a beautiful mosaic tile for your bathroom renovation, it is better to keep it for only one wall, and keep it as a feature wall and use white subway tiles for the rest of the walls, this will be cost-effective and look sophisticated. Subway tiles are as cheap as $3 per square foot and are a timeless beauty. Even the cheapest of tiles can put a huge dent in your budget, therefore; you do not necessarily need a floor to ceiling tile coverage to make the area stand out.
