Your bathroom is one of the most frequently used rooms in your home. So it’s only natural that you are ready to update it. From tub-to-shower conversions to bath installations to new flooring, there are plenty of changes you can make to improve your bathroom’s aesthetic appeal and functionality. 

Still, making the decision to renovate your bathroom can be hard. In addition to the fact that remodels can render your bathroom unusable for days at a time, depending on the project and contractor, bathroom renovations can put a real dent in your finances. 

But it doesn’t have to be like that. 

Checklist before Starting Your Next Bathroom Remodeling Project

Making your bathroom more functional and appealing doesn’t have to break the bank. There are some easy things that you can do to save money on your next bathroom remodeling project.

Don’t Rearrange Plumbing or Layout 

One of the most expensive aspects of remodeling a bathroom is moving any of the major fixtures or pieces of plumbing around. Any efforts to rearrange plumbing or increase space by removing walls will be quite expensive. 

There are certainly times when you may need to rearrange the layout of your bathroom, but do keep in mind that your costs will skyrocket when you do so. Utilizing the current arrangement and piping will allow you to save thousands of dollars. 

Work with Planners and Architects 

While it may seem counter intuitive, paying money for expert help will actually help you save money on your bathroom remodel. You may incur extra upfront costs, but you can rest assured that everything was done correctly, which will prevent unnecessary costs later 

Limit Accessories and Avoid Customization 

As you plan your next bathroom remodeling project, one of the easiest things you can do to keep costs down is to stick to the basics. Sure, basic bathroom fixtures will still have some hefty price tags, but a traditional shower will be much less expensive than a massive, walk-in bathtub with water jets. From the tiling to the paint and coloring, the simpler you keep it the easier it will be to stay under budget. 

Utilize Financing Options 

Instead of trying to pay for all of your renovations and fixtures up front, consider signing up for a payment plan. Many full-service bathroom remodeling companies routinely offer financing specials that make it much easier to pay for your dream bathroom.
