You can’t take it anymore. Your bathroom is not just in need of an update, but some serious repairs. If you let them go any longer, you could be facing major water damage to your home. It’s time to do some bathroom remodeling. However, you can’t afford to take out a huge loan just to get the job done. So where do you start?
If you need to do a bathroom remodel on a budget, consider these tips from our team at Indy Renovation.
1. Set a budget.
Before you start making design plans or buying materials, be sure to know exactly how much you can afford. Crunch some numbers, and come up with a top-dollar figure that doesn’t drain your bank account or stretch your monthly budget too thin. By knowing what you have to work with, you will be more likely to get creative and stick with your plan.
2. Start with the necessary repairs.
New wall color or custom tile is fun, but don’t start with the design details. First, prioritize the necessary repairs that will keep your bathroom functional and prevent damage. Do the pipes need repaired? Are you missing floor tiles? If you don’t plan to do this work on your own, be sure to gather quotes from several bathroom remodelers. That way, you can know how much the repairs will cost and choose a contractor who will do quality work at an affordable rate.
3. Rank your wish list.
After you’ve repaired the essentials, then you can assess how much of your remodeling budget you have left and how you want to spend it. Maybe you’ll decide to invest in a new custom bathroom vanity top or decide to redo your flooring. Make a list of all the features of your dream bathroom, and then rank them by what’s most important.
4. Get creative.
Whether you decide to do some of the work on your own or refurbish certain bathroom features, you can find many ways to save a few bucks when bathroom remodeling. Scour the local home-improvement store for deals, look online for vanities or light fixtures that people are selling, or repurpose a piece of furniture you already have to serve as your bathroom vanity. With a little research and some creative inspiration, you may be surprised what you can do with a few bucks.
