The family bathroom is not just a place to bathe, clean, and brush your teeth…your bathroom is also a design feature of your home. A sleek modern bathroom needn’t cost you the earth if you follow our tips on how to save on your bathroom renovation.
1. Layout – if the current layout of your bathroom is functional, there is no need to change it. Keeping the toilet, shower and vanity in the same place & utilising the existing plumbing could literally save you thousands.
2. The Vanity – using the cash you have saved on plumbing it is worth investing in a decent sized, durable and functional vanity. Consider how many people will use the bathroom, and make sure you choose a vanity with good storage made from materials that are moisture resistant, durable and neutral so as not to date.
3. Flooring – be sensible, think practical with your flooring. You’ll need to choose a matt tile for slip resistance, and it is wise to choose a smooth texture for ease of cleaning. A large plain ceramic tile is going to be relatively inexpensive compared to the on trend metallic textured tile you have your eye on!
4. Shower – Save money on your shower screens by choosing a single frameless shower screen rather than your traditional box shaped shower. A single screen will need to be fairly wide so that water doesn’t splash out onto the bathroom floor, and your tiler will need to slope the floor toward the drain. By choosing a water efficient shower head you will save on water bills in the long run.
Blowing the budget on a renovation is usually due to lack of or poor planning. Changing your mind during the renovation process could cost you big time. On average, Aussie homeowners renovate their bathroom about every 15 years; but if you stick to neutral tones rather than following trends you may get longer out of your bathroom.
