One of the most creative spaces in your home to completely renovate is the bathroom. Bathroom renovations give you a new sense of the area and can totally change how you feel about a room. Plus, with so many options available for you to choose from, such as water fixtures, lights, or countertops, there is undoubtedly a way for you to get the most out of your bathroom and transform it into your ideal space.
Although the price of this transformation will exist, and you need to know how the cost is raised or lowered depending on your choices. Therefore, you should consider the following decisions as you go about your design process.
Choices for Your Bathroom Renovations
The general category of water fixtures includes any item in your bathroom that will conduct water to you. So, this would consist of items like sinks, faucets, bathtubs, and showerheads. Thankfully, we live in a world where there are almost limitless options available for you to choose from when it comes to any individual purchase in this category, but that also means that you will have to be diligent in your decision-making process.
For instance, if you are looking to replace your showerhead in your upcoming washroom renovations, consider strongly the necessity of changing the speed or pattern of the water output. If you don’t take long showers, or if you simply use them to keep clean, having these additional features may not be worth the extra cost.
Similarly, if you want to avoid spending extra money, you should stay away from luxury faucets. While some of them may have a very striking look or appeal, the reality is that they are just used to conduct water into your sink basin. Therefore, look for elegant and straightforward faucet designs that won’t cost you excessive amounts of money.
Tiling is a large part of any bathroom renovation, and for a good reason. Using tile in this space prevents water or moisture damage, and is easily cleaned. To get the most out of your tile purchases or designs, consider large tiles wherever possible. Typically, the lower amount versus the more extensive square footage will make up the cost, and there is less opportunity for dust or grime to accumulate in-between the tiles. Pick simple designs with light colours to keep the relatively small space of your bathroom feeling wide open and fresh.
The Cost of Bathroom Renovations
Even if you are using these cost-saving design tips in your upcoming bathroom renovation, you will undoubtedly still have to spend a fair amount of money to make them complete. While you can run an extremely inexpensive renovation project for around $3000, you will likely have to make severe choices and limit the scope of the project substantially. Plus, there is a good chance you will have to do some of the labour yourself. It is more likely that you will spend around $7,000 to $14,000 for a complete renovation with services and materials included. However, prices can sometimes exceed $20,000 for a comprehensive, luxury renovation of your bathroom. The choice is up to you!
