How to save on a bathroom remodel

A bathroom remodel is one of the top projects homeowners want to complete. But it can be a costly one depending on what will need to be done to create your dream bathroom.

The average cost of a bathroom remodel for a half bath ranges between $5,000 to $10,000 and  a full bath ranges between $14,000 to $20,000. A luxuries master bathroom could cost you $30,000 and up. The average homeowner does not have the financial means to put that amount of money  into remodeling a bathroom.

However, there are many ways you can save money on your bathroom remodel. 

Keeping the existing size and layout of your bathroom. Which often will save you from the costly price of moving plumbing pipes.

Eliminate the need to hire professionals for bathroom remodel by knowing what tasks you are willing to take on yourself.

Avoid removing load-bearing walls.

Remove only drywall that is damaged or has been effected by mold.

Only move or change electrical outlets that are unsafe or need to be brought up to code.

Skip the custom tile job and use a prefabricated shower or tub. And you can even add tile to this yourself to spruce it up.

Keep existing toilet if it is fully functional but upgrade by changing the internal parts.

Renew any fixtures that are still functional instead of replacing.

Instead of buying a new vanity, repurpose an old dresser into a vanity.

Reuse mirror if possible, add a frame around the mirror for updated look.
