Money-Saving Tips for Your Denver Bathroom Remodel

August 29, 2018

For most people who are doing a bathroom model, budget is one of the most important considerations. Although bathrooms—as well as kitchens—pay off in the long run in terms of return on investment, they can also be expensive projects. But your Denver bathroom remodel doesn’t have to break the bank if you follow these money-saving tips.

Make a Budget—and Stick to It

Figure out how much money you have to spend on the project, then work around that. Be realistic when coming up with a budget and consider items such as tile, fixtures, pain, and décor.

Do-It-Yourself Whenever Possible

Anything that has to do with electrical and plumbing are probably best left to the experts, but there are other areas where do-it-yourself makes sense, such as painting or installing tiles. Even if you have never done them before, these tasks are not that difficult to learn. There are plenty of instructions and YouTube videos online that can help.

Update Rather Than Replace

A new toilet can cost several hundred dollars—but do you really need a whole new toilet? Sometimes an inexpensive update is all you need. A new lid and seat will cost you a fraction of what a whole new fixture would cost—and it will make the toilet look brand new.

Use Shelving Rather Than Cabinetry

Cabinetry can be expensive, especially if you plan on adding additional cabinets because you want a lot of storage. Consider using shelving mounted on the wall to give you the same amount of extra storage but for a lot less money.

Try Upcycling

When you are trying to save money, upcycling can be a great way to do it—and enable you to add unique pieces to your bathroom at the same time. An old dresser you find at a thrift shop can be turned into a vanity. You can turn reclaimed lumber into wainscoting. There are plenty of ways to use your creativity and crafting skills in your bathroom remodel.

Try a Fresh Coat of Paint

The power paint is surprising, and if you think your bathroom needs a whole remodel, perhaps it just needs a fresh coat of paint. Pops of color can add a lot to your bathroom—for not a lot of money. Once you paint, take a look at your bathroom with a critical eye to determine what updates are truly necessary.
