Another method of reducing costs is through purchasing ready to assemble cabinets for your bathroom vanity. You can later add a custom look to them by refacing the cabinet doors and adding high-end hardware, rather than getting the whole cabinet custom made. Simplicity is key, is a phrase that almost always stands its ground. It will definitely save money if you maintain the simple and basic outlook of your bathroom. Moving the tub or shower and especially the toilet requires a lot of plumbing changes and hence increases cost.
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.
This will help in the prevention of any disagreements that may arise due to miscommunication. It will also give you an exact idea of what to expect, as well as the period of the project’s completion. A bathroom remodel is a long and tedious process, which is why your contractor might ask for money in advance, before the work starts, and after completing various milestones during the remodeling.
