Expert Tips to Save Money on Your Bathroom Remodel Without Sacrificing Style!
Remodeling your bathroom in New York with all the bells and whistles doesn’t come cheap. According to Remodel Magazine, the average cost of a midrange bathroom renovation that includes replacing all the fixtures, the vanity, the tiles, and the toilet, is around $19,000. For people in New York, the average cost is closer to $22,000 for a midrange bathroom renovation.
If you are going to install high-end amenities in your bathroom in New York City, such as heated floors and automatic toilets, it can end up costing you over $50,000.
However, there are some ways you can keep the costs down, so you don’t end up breaking the bank on a simple bathroom remodeling project. Here are some tips from building professionals and leading interior designers at Parker Kitchen Bath Interior to save money on your bathroom renovation without sacrificing style:
Use Less Tile
Most homeowners are surprised to find out that the most expensive thing in their bathroom is the tiles. The more tile you have in your bathroom, the higher the total cost of renovation will be. Rather than covering the whole bathroom with tile, go for a staggered pattern that requires less tile as it goes up to the ceiling. You can also go for a border design by adding tiles to the borders only instead of the entire floor for a clean and timeless look.
Search for Discounts and Leftovers
Why pay for an entire slab of granite when all you’ll be needing is a small piece to cover the top of your bathroom vanity? There are plenty of stone fabricators that sell leftover granite slabs at half the price of a full slab. You can also look for discounted tiles and other fixtures at closeout stores or shops that are overstocked and are trying to get rid of discontinued lines. Plenty of shops also sell display models at amazing discounted rates. Make sure your contractor knows all of this and helps you keep the costs as low as possible through smart shopping.
Skip the Medicine Cabinet
Do you really need a medicine cabinet? Top bathroom designers suggest forgoing the medicine cabinet for a simple and ornate decorative mirror to save money while enhancing the look of the bathroom.
Consider the Labor Costs
Most homeowners only factor in the price of the material and fixtures for their bathroom remodel and don’t consider the labor costs. However, labor can account for almost 40% of the entire remodeling cost. Choosing products that are easy to install and will take less time is the best way to save on labor costs.
Keep It Simple
When was the last time you took a long, luxurious bath? You probably never get time for a bath while living in New York, which is a hub of activity 24/7. Rather than going for a lavish bathtub that will end up costing you thousands of dollars, choose a simple shower room to save on renovation costs as well as on your water bills at the end of each month.
