How to save on bathroom remodeling
- Remodel in stages: Remodel your bathroom in stages instead of all at once.
- Avoid moving the tub, toilet, or shower: Moving fixtures requires additional plumbing work that costs much more.
- Buy materials yourself: Many DIY pros advise paying for consultation or design services only, then purchasing the parts yourself.
- Reuse or resurface fixtures: If your toilet, sink, cabinets, or bathtub isn't broken, consider reusing them.
- Refinish, resurface, or repaint the old fixtures and tile, cutting costs in half and making them look new again.
- Open shelving is cheaper than cabinets, and creates a sense of having more space.
- Choose off-the-shelf fixtures and materials over custom pieces.
- Do some DIY: Tasks such as removing old fixtures, ripping out old tiles and tubs, or painting the walls yourself reduces your overall costs.

Bathroom remodeling ideas
Sharing remodeling pictures, ideas, colors, and other examples with your contractor ahead of time makes the process smoother and ensures you get the bathroom of your dreams.
Consider these ideas and designs when planning your new bathroom:
- Choose textured bathroom flooring materials that are non-slip and non-porous.
- Glazed flooring surfaces are easier to clean and more stain-resistant than natural stone.
- Select larger tiles where possible. Larger tiles are a popular design trend and have less grout to clean later.
- Install towel bars on the back of your bathroom door in a small bathroom.
- Use painter’s tape to mark where you want to hang your mirror, shelves, and towel racks.
- Choose a corner sink or pedestal sink for small bathrooms to save space.
