Want to save money on your bathroom renovation and keep the “wow” factor? If you’re remodelling and want to create a luxurious bathroom and stick to a budget, the process can be frustrating if you don’t know where to start and what to look for. The Reno King has a few tips to share that will turn this arduous task into an easy one that will save you time and money.
1) First, consider your layout. If you can, keep your current layout. Changing bathroom plans adds more plumbing & electrical costs among other costs depending on the extent of the changes. If your layout isn’t functional, then have one of our specialists pop by to discuss your available options.
2) Buy a vanity that is pre-assembled with the granite/quartz counter and sink included. Your vanity and faucet can end up costing a more than double when you buy them separately. The best place to shop for these fully-assembled packages is modernbathrooms.ca, a Port Moody company. Modernbathrooms.ca sells all-inclusive packages that are of superior quality and cost less than those sold at the local big box stores! Everything comes together: vanity, counter, sink, faucet and mirror. Wherever you decide to buy, make sure the items are CUPC Approved or they won’t pass inspection. All sets at modernbathrooms.ca are approved.
3) Tile design is another area that can add up quickly. Keeping a square or stagered design will keep costs down. A great way to add some characted is to add a border or some accent tiles. Setting tile around a window, shower seat or recessed shower shelf also adds labor, so keep these in mind.
4) Glass doors can help you lower your bill as well. Shower door kits are available at retail outlets for reasonable prices. If you’re stuck on custom 8mm or 10mm frameless glass then we fully understand and can arrange this type of beautiful finish.
5) Last, but not least, buy good quality paint. Do not buy paints that claim to save you time with their built-in primers. These paints are low quality and usually require three to four coats to cover properly. Benjamin Moore, General Paint, Cloverdale, ICI and Sherwin Williams all have good paint at good prices. Buy the middle grade or high-end paint, and it will cover in two coats, be easier to clean, take a stronger beating and last longer than the big box store paint. Most of the above-mentioned companies will also give you contractor pricing if you ask, which means the mid-grade paint will cost you the same as the box store paint and give you much better results.
I hope these tips help!
