Save money on your bathroom renovation with low-cost but practical material swaps

How often can you save money on materials but still get high-quality? Not often but it is the case in this scenario. Luxury vinyl tile flooring is designed to replicate hard surface flooring materials such as stone or wood, yet provide many practical benefits. It’s cost-effective, comfortable to walk on, is easy to clean, won’t chip, and is resistant to moisture.

Another low-cost material that still looks luxurious is high-definition laminate or quartz countertops. They look incredibly similar to authentic natural stone. You can also go with faux-stone ceramic and porcelain tile backsplashes to mimic the look of travertine and marble.

A new sink and faucet provide a dramatic bathroom makeover

You can replace your entire sink and faucet or, if you’re strapped for cash, sometimes just replacing the faucet is enough to provide a facelift for your bathroom renovation.

No matter the size of your bathroom, a new sink and faucet dramatically changes the feel because it’s one of the focal points of the room. If you don’t have a lot of elbow-room to work with, there are space-saving options you can go with.

Shower remodel with steam shower and rain shower head

Imagine stepping into your very own steam room every day. That feels like luxury doesn’t it? Couple it with a rain shower head and you’ve got water coming at you from two directions. Water pressure lovers, rejoice!

Add high-quality tile and this will truly feel like a spa.

Add a window in the shower during your bathroom renovation

Don’t worry, there’s a way to avoid this creating privacy issues! Adding a window in your shower that gives you an outside view provides a few different things. First, it allows humidity to escape if you crack it just a bit. Second, it allows natural light into the bathroom which could lead to a small savings in energy costs if it helps you refrain from flipping on the light during the day. Finally, it gives the room a more open feel and, if you have a decent outdoor view, that’s a bonus!

Adding a window during your bathroom renovation adds natural lighting and elegance.

There’s a couple things you need to keep in mind, though. You’ll need to slope the window downward to allow the water to roll off. For privacy, you will want to opt for frosted glass.

Improve the lighting and lighting fixtures when doing a bathroom renovation

You’d be surprised what a difference choosing the right lighting in your remodeled bathroom will make. You may not have thought about it before, but lighting doesn’t simply help you see where you’re going. It helps your circadian rhythm. Meaning, it can help you wake up in the morning and wind down in the evening.

Of course, there’s also what is called task lighting which is exactly what it sounds like. A focused light that helps you accomplish certain tasks such as shaving or putting on makeup.

Option to consider:

  • Dimmers for the main lighting
  • Recessed or sconce lights around the vanity
  • Recessed lighting in the shower
  • Ambient lighting that illuminates all corners of the room
  • Pendant lighting that doubles as a statement piece

The right countertop material makes a big difference in your bathroom renovation

When selecting the material for your countertop, don’t just consider appearance. Functionality is important too. Luckily, natural stone countertops check both boxes. While it is more expensive, it’s also very durable.

If your budget is tight, quartz countertops are a fantastic swap. Quartz is durable as well, doesn’t get water stains easily and doesn’t scratch easily.

Go with a walk-in shower

Don’t take a lot of baths? Nix the tub and go with a walk-in shower. Not only does it feel luxurious, as an added bonus, this type of shower remodel is a great feature to have as you age since you can roll-in with a wheelchair.

Pairing the right fixtures and tile will add to the upscale feel.
