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.
It is best to leave the selection process to your contractor if you are unsure about what to buy that will best fit your ideas and budget. They have a wider access to bathroom remodel accessories through their personal relationships with manufacturers. This means that they can also get them at cheaper prices than accessories present in home depot stores, hence reducing the bathroom remodel cost by a significant amount.
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.
