When it comes to bathroom renovations, it’s easy to let your budget get out of control. For as much information as is out there about how to renovate a bathroom with the best features and designs, there is just as much information on budgeting for your makeover. If you really want to make the most of your next renovation project without compromising your budget, here are some things to keep in mind.
Since you’re on a
budget, it would make sense that you will want to make a sort-of hierarchy of
what is most important to you in your bathroom renovations. No one can tell you what should go first on
this list, though. This is where you decide which elements of the makeover are
most important to you. For example, if you’ve got your heart set on a jetted
tub, make that a priority and work everything else around it. If that means you
have less to spend on a sink or tiles, so be it.
Many home improvement
stores and appliance retailers offer discounts on wholesale products, “scratch
and dent” items, and other bathroom fixtures and renovation items that you are
going to need for your projects. This is a great way to save a fortune on
fixtures and furnishings for all of your projects, including bathroom
remodelling. A lot of times, even the damaged items aren’t really that damaged
at all, but are marked down significantly to save a lot
of money. Sometimes, builders just order too much of something and then don’t
need it. Again, it will be sold at a discount for your benefit.
Of all the reasons that bathroom renovations go off the rails in terms of spending, not planning or tracking the project budget is one of the biggest causes. People sometimes just ballpark how much they have to spend and start shopping and renovating, without stopping to think about what they are actually spending or whether they are making the best investment in their renovation projects. The best way to stay on budget is to start by having one.
Now that you have a little more insight
about saving money on your bathroom
renovations, take advantage of the Internet to shop around and find the
best prices on all the fixtures and furnishings that you need for your project.
