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.
Adding windows is essential, as it will also provide for a natural source of light in the daytime, but also makes the bathroom more breathable. However, they are a pricey solution, and instead of making a big hole in your wall to make room for a window, alternatives can be used. One example is the sun tube or the solar tube, which can be installed to give off solar light. They range from 10 inches to 20 inches in diameter and are easy to install, as only a small hole has to be made.
