Design planning. If you have not put proper thought into your design planning, you can discover many faults in your plans mid-renovation, which might lead to last minute changes in plans and hence, increase costs. It is important to go through your design plan thoroughly in order to avoid any last minute errors such as not having enough space or interfering factors.
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.
A bathroom renovation requires background research before reaching final decisions regarding designs and ideas, for example, if you like a tile, you must ensure that it is durable and if it is designed for walls or not. Wooden floors in bathrooms are not promoted because of seepage. Therefore, the tiles absorption rate should also be looked into. It is best to go for a tile with a <7% rating in terms of seepage and a <3% for shower flooring.
Bathroom vanities come in various styles, sizes, plus shapes. In many cases, a specific style or size limits what can be put inside your own bathroom. With contemporary also traditional styles available, most go for one aspect or the other. Traditional bathroom vanities have a wood body with a stone countertop plus porcelain basin, while contemporary designs are compact also made of glass plus metal. But, regardless of which style fits your decor better, size is another important factor when adding a bathroom vanity, particularly in the area of a sink. As vanities have more storage space than a sink basin, many add them to a bathroom as a place for toiletries, linens, towels, also hair tools.
