Save Money on your Temecula Bathroom Makeover
We have Bathroom Remodeling Ideas to Save You Money
Are you ready for a Temecula Bathroom Makeover? Is the thought of dropping $25,000 to $30,000 on a deluxe spa retreat way beyond your means. We have good news for you. You do not have to be one of the rich and famous to transform your bathroom into a special retreat. There are many great ideas to redesign on a budget. Review this article to decide if you prefer to do it yourself (DIY) or would prefer to use our bathroom remodeling services. As you can see below this article, our customers consistently award us 5-stars for our Temecula bathroom remodeling.
Limit the Use of Tile
Installing tile for a Temecula bathroom remodel can be expensive. One way to save money is to limit your use of tile. Focus your use of tile on high-visibility areas like the floor (instead of the floor and shower walls). An idea for a splash of tile is to use one horizontal stripe on the wall. Paint the remaining wall.
If you love the look of expensive tile, use it as an accent along with a cheaper tile. In this way, the artistic tiles are quite noticeable. You will also save a lot of money by only using expensive tile here and there.
Save Money on Countertops
Many people are extravagant with granite Temecula countertops. Since the bathroom counter is small, that investment is affordable. Kitchen countertops are far more expensive.
So how can you save on granite countertops? First, analyze the cost of various granite colors. We have found that light-colored granite is more popular. That translates to them being more expensive. You can save money by being flexible with the granite color.
A little known cost-saving measure is to buy a granite slab with imperfections. The more visible the defect, the cheaper the price. If the imperfection is where the sink cut-out is expected, you won’t see the imperfection!
Budget DIYers can take advantage of one of the most popular trends. Use an old dresser as your sink pedestal. It is very simple to pull off. Cut off the top of the dresser for a sink insert. Then cut into or remove interior drawers as necessary. Finally, cut holes in the back of the dresser for plumbing. These “dresser sinks” sell for big bucks in retail stores. These projects take some patience and the right tools.
Paint to Give Your Bathroom a Fresh Look
When you don’t have a lot to spend, then painting will be the cheapest solution. You may find that painting is the most affordable way to update your bathroom’s look.
We must warn yourself. For DIYers, tackling a bathroom remodel will take more time than you can expect. You will have to paint slowly and gently. Be careful around the tub/shower, the sink, your mirror, the toilet, and the switchplates. This takes time and patience, and a supply of painter’s tape. When planning, remember this important step.
Another thing to consider is the moisture in the bathroom. Mold and mildew develop in a bathroom. The humidity and temperature change requires high-quality satin or gloss paint. At the same time, use special mold-resistant paint on the bathroom ceiling.
Next, look at the little details. You can update sinks, light fixtures, towel racks, and drawer knobs inexpensively. These items may seem insignificant. You don’t need to buy your fixtures at a home improvement store. One current trend is to use old plumbing for a towel rack. It can give your bathroom an industrial and modern feel. You might even find old plumbing being disposed of so they might be free.
Freshen Caulk and Grout
Another often overlooked yet crucial detail is grout and caulk. When this gets grimy, it gets unsightly. Cleaning grout and adding clean lines of caulk around the tub and sink can add sparkle for a few dollars. Most people are pleasantly surprised by how little changes can impact your bathroom. Grout and caulk are cheap, so this is a very inexpensive way to freshen up your bathroom.
Refinish, Don’t Buy New
You can get an almost new feel from refinishing bathroom fixtures. The best choices for refinishing are vintage bathroom fixtures or old tubs that you want to keep. You can refinish fixtures made of porcelain, cast iron, or fiberglass. You must be prepared for the time and cost. DIY refinishing kits often cost between $100 and $150. Still, you’ll also need additional supplies. They may include a spray gun, face masks, a sander, paintbrushes, etc. If you need training on refinishing, you can find them on Youtube or HGTV.
You should not try to refinish your sink and shower fixtures. Refinishing them costs more than replacing them. We recommend only invest in old, vintage pieces that you want to keep. The tradesmen who provide this service charge a premium price.
