Bathroom Remodelling: How to Save Money
Thinking of freshening up your bathroom, but don’t have the cash? Even remodelling small bathrooms can be expensive. But doing up your lavatory doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. Our experienced plumbers have revealed their best secrets to save you money during your bathroom renovation.
Keep It Where It Is
Thinking about switching where your toilet and bath sit? Think again. Keeping major fixtures where they are can save you thousands of dollars. Moving sinks and taps means moving pipes as well, and that can add up to some serious cash. Not to mention the concrete or tiles you might have to replace in the move. So keep it in the same spot, and save some dough.
Love the look of a statement mirror in your bathroom, but can’t find anything in your budget? Get a fancy frame instead. Framing your builder-grade mirror gives it a strong new look. It also can hide any flaking around the edges. And you won’t have to hire an expert to hang it for you.
Hit your local antique stores or troll through Facebook Marketplace to find cheap and one-off statement pieces. An old dresser can be your new vanity. That salvaged wood can be a chic curtain valance. You may even find a quirky sink or a classic bathtub. Gumtree could help you find your unique style while saving you a bundle.
