How To Remodel Your Bathroom For Cheap In New Jersey

by | Jun 3, 2021

Ready to start your project?

Many people shy away from fulfilling their vision for their home with the bathroom remodel they want because they think it will be too expensive. Nothing could be further from the truth. Not only will remodeling often recoup much of its cost by increasing the property’s value, but there are also a number of ways to improve your bathroom without breaking the bank. 

Nowadays, home remodeling TV shows make it seem like every remodel has to be tens of thousands of dollars, that everything has to be totally rebuilt and replaced. This doesn’t have to be the case. If you’re thrifty and don’t mind some recycled material, the costs of a bathroom remodel can be greatly reduced.

One unfortunate part of home remodeling is the stress it can create for homeowners. Between the high costs, mess made, and missed deadlines, there’s a lot to worry about. At Interior Excellence, we’ve handled high-quality home improvement projects for over 30 years. We make it our mission to make the process as seamless as possible. We’ll give your property the dedication we’d want for our own homes, and we keep tight deadlines because we never spread ourselves thin between multiple projects. We’ll show you some tricks you can use for a low-cost bathroom remodel that will have your space looking new without the dent in your wallet.

Use Alternative Materials

One of the best ways to save money in any home improvement project is to reuse materials that you already have. However, if you do have to use new materials while trying to keep your budget low, a good way to do it is to use alternative materials. If you’re primarily concerned with the look of the space, there are now plenty of inexpensive materials that still look amazing. One example is with flooring. Hardwood flooring and marble look amazing in any room, but they can really run up your costs. There are now luxury vinyl flooring options with texture that can fool the eye and give the room that nice clean look you want. 

There are a number of quality options for other parts of the bathroom as well. In terms of table tops, there are now laminate and quartz countertops that can give you the natural stone look that’s highly desirable without the cost of a material like granite.

Retain Existing Materials

In the bathroom, if you want to save money you should consider replacing the fixtures to be your last option. If at all possible, you should make an effort to keep fixtures like a shower or bathtub. These fixtures can be refinished rather than removed. This is especially true if you’re mainly concerned with the cosmetics of the tub. Yellowing surfaces or cracks in the tub can both be repaired. A new bathtub can cost multiple thousands of dollars, even more if you need to change the plumbing to fit it, so retaining your existing one can really spare you some costs.

Do It Yourself

There are plenty of jobs in a bathroom remodel that should probably be left to the professionals if you don’t have the skill or time to do them yourself. Painting is normally one of these jobs, especially when you’re trying to cover a lot of space. The bathroom is a smaller space however, and between the numerous covered surfaces and fixtures there’s not always a lot of wall to have to cover with paint. If this is the case in your bathroom you should consider painting the bathroom yourself to save on remodelling costs.
