Many creative aspects dictate the way that bathroom remodels work. Such a project is very demanding, even when you aren’t handling the work yourself. One of the biggest challenges to overcome is having a tight budget that you can’t exceed. What are some other ways to get around this obstacle? We’ve got some more suggestions for you to follow!
Tackle Some of the Plumbing Work
Yes, there is some plumbing work you can handle. There is an enduring perception that one of the householders has the know-how to perform some basic plumbing work. This image persists for minor tasks in the kitchen or bathroom. But there is a kernel of truth to that idea; basic plumbing-related tasks are within your ability to complete. PEX and push-in fittings can make an amazing difference!
Choose New Vanities and Tops
Another idea we have for you: choose the new vanities and countertops for your redesigned bathroom. These units often come pre-assembled, so all you need to do is set them up. This transformation will only take a few hours. Plus, coordinating counters are available. These options feature sinks that have been pre-installed. Thus, you won’t have to worry about sink installation or taking up valuable time on caulking.
Transfer Bathroom Elements
Removing some of the decorations and leftover materials from the bathroom being worked on sounds simple enough; most homes have multiple bathrooms of varying sizes. Therefore, consider reassigning shower curtains and picture frames to a separate bathroom.
Handle the Design on Your Own
We get it – not everyone is a skilled interior designer or architect. Even so, you do have some input and control on the overall design of your home. As such, handling some of the design challenges doesn’t need to seem impossible. Learn what you can about commonly accepted layouts and pick up some tips and tricks along the way. Besides, the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) can give you some inspiration and guidance!
Use Wainscot to Cover imperfections
Wainscot is affordable and doesn’t take much effort to use. So, try using it to conceal cracks, holes, and other imperfections in your walls. Surface-level renovations are only “skin deep,” but the temptation still exists to hide elements of a bathroom that you should replace instead. Wainscot boards are tall enough to go up 48 inches. When you use them, you won’t have to spend time fixing unsightly dings or filling in small holes.
