Bathroom remodeling on a budget

Keeping your overall costs down generates a higher return on investment and still increases your home's value. Make your bathroom renovation more affordable with these money-saving tips:

How to save on bathroom remodeling

  1. Remodel in stages: Remodel your bathroom in stages instead of all at once.
  2. Avoid moving the tub, toilet, or shower: Moving fixtures requires additional plumbing work that costs much more.
  3. Buy materials yourself: Many DIY pros advise paying for consultation or design services only, then purchasing the parts yourself.
  4. Reuse or resurface fixtures: If your toilet, sink, cabinets, or bathtub isn't broken, consider reusing them.
  5. Refinish, resurface, or repaint the old fixtures and tile, cutting costs in half and making them look new again.
  6. Open shelving is cheaper than cabinets, and creates a sense of having more space.
  7. Choose off-the-shelf fixtures and materials over custom pieces.
  8. 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.
  • Vanity and built-in sink combo sets offer the most storage space, but take up the most area.
  • Floating vanities offer a completely open floor space beneath for variable storage.
  • Install more mirrors or increase the size of your existing mirrors to make the bathroom feel more spacious.

Hiring a bathroom remodeling contractor

Before hiring a contractor, it's essential to plan accordingly, ask questions, and get multiple quotes.

Getting quotes & signing an agreement

  • Get at least three on-site remodeling quotes to compare.
  • Choose licensed, insured, and bonded contractors.
  • Review the contractors' ratings on HomeGuide, Google, and the Better Business Bureau (BBB).

Look for the following information in your contract:

  • Precise beginning date, deadlines, and schedule for each task.
  • Details for who handles the cleanup afterward
  • Explanation of who takes on the responsibility of protecting finished surfaces during construction
  • Itemized list of all permits, materials, and labor involved.
  • An explanation of how they’ll notify you of any unexpected costs.
  • List of all the construction tasks they’ll complete along with the prices of each.
  • Full warranty description.
  • Description of all flood tests and pressure tests they’ll perform for new fixtures and plumbing.
  • Penalties when the contractors don’t meet their deadlines

Questions to ask bath remodelers

  • Are you licensed, insured, and bonded?
  • Who's the project manager, and will you use subcontractors?
  • What hours do you and your crew work?
  • What permits do I need, and will you obtain them?
  • What’s your payment schedule?
  • What does your warranty policy include?
  • How do you handle damages that happen on the job?
