Bathroom remodeling in Barcelona, along with kitchen remodeling, can be frustrating for homeowners in terms of frustration, unfulfilled schedules, and high costs. While it may seem impossible, an attractive yet affordable bathroom remodel is achievable. The common culture of home remodeling often makes it seem that bathroom remodeling should be five digits long and everything should be torn and replaced.
But resisting this perception is the first step to controlling the spiral costs of changing the bathroom and getting everything back on the ground.
Given the staggering cost of bathroom remodeling, it is beneficial to think outside the box and look for smarter and more cost-effective alternatives. After renovating a low-cost, low-cost bathroom, you will not only have a clean, bright, and functional bathroom, but you will also have significant money in your bank account for renovations or other things in your life.
Use Lower-Cost Lookalike Materials
Maintaining and renovating your existing materials is always the best option to save money. But if you have to change materials, inexpensive alternatives can often look surprisingly real.
For example, try luxury vinyl flooring instead of real wood flooring. Today’s vinyl flooring looks much better than previous replicas. Innovations such as luxury vinyl flooring and vinyl siding can even fool the eye remotely.
High-quality laminate tables and quartz tables now compete with granite for the appearance of genuine natural stone. Artificial stone ceramics and porcelain tiles can mimic the appearance of travertine and marble.
Refinish Your Tub Instead of Replacing It
At least in terms of cost savings, consider a complete replacement of the bathtub as your last possible option.
Instead, try reusing or working again. Cleaning the bathtub and shower is a good example of the phrase “instead of removing, maintain.” If the problem is mainly cosmetic, such as a yellowed surface and some cracks and crevices, you can fix your shower or bathtub.
On the other hand, bathtub and shower liners, which are never a permanent repair, are not as cost-effective as they seem. Liners that require professional installation will take you several years. Instead, bathtub cleaning is cheaper and often looks better.
Install a New Sink Faucet
Like installing new hardware on cabinets, installing a new sink faucet is one of the tricks used by designers and themselves to make the sink shine without having to replace the entire procedure or toilet.
This helps to install a simple, easy, and fast dishwasher by yourself. No need to call a plumber. This not only saves labor costs but also extends the timeline. In the morning, take the sink faucet and turn it on until lunch. Just as easily.
Resist the Urge to Move Major Plumbing
Save money by putting toilet and bathroom facilities where they are. Once the current location of the plumbing meets your needs, there is no need to relocate the plumbing. Water transfer and/or drainage immediately increases the cost of any reconstruction project.
Paint Your Wooden Floor
If your bathroom has wood flooring, you can always cover it with a moisture-resistant insole, such as tile, laminate, or luxury vinyl.
Or you can save time, energy, and money by holding your wooden floor and painting it with protective enamel. Of course, keep in mind that solid hardwood should not be your first choice for bathroom flooring. But if you already have wood flooring, this is a cheap way to keep it for a long time.
Install Wainscot on Lower Half of Walls
If the bath material still works, repair it and use it again. This principle guides any surface renovation (with the caveat that you never want to cover anything because it needs to be replaced).
For example, there is no better way to cover the bottom of the walls than with an easy-to-install pad. Winscott is a prefabricated board that extends up to 48 inches and eliminates the need to patch walls and minor holes. A vase simply covers it.
Paint Portions of the Interior by Yourself
Interior painting can be done even by the least skilled people. To paint the whole house, due to the large scale, you may want to hire a professional painter.
But consider how much painting you should do in the bathroom. Most of the wall space is occupied by mirrors, showers, tiles, cabinets, and bathtubs. Finally, you only have a few square feet to paint. In many cases, you can paint this yourself in a day or two.
