How Cross Plains Homeowners Can Save Some Money on a Bathroom Remodel
There’s a big difference between cutting corners and taking shortcuts, and when it comes to remodeling your bathroom, it’s all about the latter. If the bathroom in your Cross Plains, Wisconsin, home has seen better days and you’re considering a bathroom remodel, there are certain loopholes you can take advantage of to get more bang for your buck. Read on to learn the hottest tips for making the most of your bathroom remodel.
Leave the plumbing where it is.
While a bathroom remodel may be a tempting time to completely rip out everything and redo it exactly how you want it, rerouting plumbing is an undertaking. It takes time and it is not cheap. So when giving your bathroom a much-needed makeover, it might be best to replace the sink and toilet but leave them where they are.
Upgrade rather than replace your toilet.
If your toilet is relatively new and not terribly unsightly, there’s really no need to tear it out and install a new one. Instead, consider replacing just the toilet seat and lid. That way, your commode will blend harmoniously with the rest of your bathroom for a fraction of the price of replacing the whole thing.
Consider tile alternatives.
Ceramic tile work has long been a cornerstone of bathroom décor, but it can sometimes come with a hefty price tag. And besides, nowadays there are so many comparable options, there’s no need to limit yourself. Consider alternatives to traditional ceramic and porcelain tile, such as laminate flooring, vinyl sheet, or engineered wood, to shave some bucks off the cost of replacing the floor.
