How to maximize your budget
DO Spend on new floors
Most of the time, people walk barefoot in their bathrooms. Entering dirty shoes leaves dirty footmarks that are icky and yucky. If you think of remodeling, change your flooring. You can replace it with tile for easier cleanup and floor maintenance.
DO Spend on new hardware
This is most applicable to houses with hard water to replace sinks and shower faucets because of metal corrosion. Add a decorative mirror to coordinate with the new look.
DON’T be afraid of technology
If you can’t afford a talking toilet worth $10,000, you can still make your bathroom “high-tech” with steam showers, heated floors, Bluetooth mirrors, or wall-mounted televisions that can bring your bathroom to a higher level.
DON’T skimp on labor
Always leave the complicated tasks to the professionals, don’t make it worse by doing it all yourself. It pays to find a first-rate contractor to manage the operations. Meet with at least three contractors and don’t immediately go with the lowest bid. Do background checks on each and read reviews about their previous works.
