Most remodeling projects are major investments. However, you do not necessarily have to spend a lot of money to get your desired bathroom upgrades. You just need to understand where to save and splurge! In this post, your local bathroom contractor shares a handy guide to spending wisely on your bathroom remodeling project.
Where to Save
Lighting. This is an essential aspect of every room, but you don’t have to spend a huge chunk of your budget on it. You really only need lighting above your vanity and between the mirrors. You can even these out with some overhead lighting. If you are not using recessed lights, make certain you have lights above the vanity near the wall so that they won’t cast a shadow on someone near the mirror.
Toilet. High-tech toilets that respond to voice commands or have built-in seat warmers are interesting but expensive. These features have yet to gain traction in the U.S., so unless you have extra cash to spend, it’s best to keep your toilet simple and inexpensive so you can save your money for something that will have a bigger impact.
Where to Splurge
In-floor heating. A professional bathroom remodeler will know that heated floors are gaining popularity across the country. They offer a good ROI if they are in a bathroom that has no other heat source or a limited heat source. It’s a good solution for bathrooms that are situated in cold parts of a home, like in a corner, in the basement or above the garage.
Faucets and showerheads. You may be able to purchase a faucet for only $50 online, but keep in mind that skimping here will probably cost you more in the long run. Remember that you are using these fixtures multiple times a day. Cheap faucets and showerheads tend to leak and loosen with time, their finishes flake off and the water pressure can be weak and unpredictable.
