The bathroom is one of the most frequently used rooms in the house. As such, it should be an appealing place to go to.
Remodeling a Firestone bathroom is a big project. In fact, it is one of the most expensive rooms to update. According to Remodelling Magazine, an upscale bathroom remodel will cost about $26,000; while an average bathroom remodel costs around $10,500. That amount may be far from what you can afford to spend.
The good news is that you don’t have to empty your wallet in order to transform your Firestone bathroom into a cool, relaxing space. Use these tips to give your bathroom a facelift while keeping a budget in mind.
Have a plan before you start
Take time to plan what you want before you call a Firestone contractor and ask for prices. This way, the contractors can give you an estimate for the job, so you have an idea how much money you’ll need to get things done. Also, stick to your plan. Changing your mind midstream costs time and money.
Keep plumbing where it is
Moving Firestone utilities like the bathtub, toilet and sink is not just time consuming, it will also cost you a lot of money. To minimize Firestone plumbing costs, keep everything in the same spot. If you really need to reposition the toilet, shower or bath, make it a minimal move.
If you don’t have a lot to spend, look at the little details. Update your towel racks, sink faucets, light fixtures and drawer hardware. This will make a big difference on your bathroom’s appearance.
Know your limits
It can be tempting to go the DIY route when you’re working on a limited budget. Yes, you can save a significant amount of money by doing things on your own. However, please leave the more complicated tasks to the professionals.
Painting the walls and cabinets is fairly easy. So, there’s no need to call in a professional for that. But be sure to contact a professional to take care of the plumbing tasks. You are likely to spend more money if you screw up and then call a professional later on to fix your mistakes.
