Before installing your new shower stall, you will have to tear apart the existing fixtures. Usually, people hire professionals for the teardown phase, which can be as costly as $1000. By tearing down some of the fixtures yourself, you can save some of the bathroom remodeling cost. However, this also requires a lot of thought and planning, as you will need accurate tools such as a sledgehammer, a crowbar as well as a claw hammer.
It should be kept in mind, however, that the bathroom should only have tiles. Wooden floors are a strict no in bathrooms as the water might get absorbed. This is why tiles with a low seepage rate should be bought. Countertops come in many low-budget varieties like laminate, tile etc. and they also come in high-scale varieties, like natural stone, quartz which cost about $100 per square foot.
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.
