If you have been putting off a much-needed bathroom remodel because of a tight budget, then you may be surprised to learn that there are a few remodeling tips that you can use to get a new bathroom while also saving money at the same time. From finding granite countertop slab remnants to painting your existing bathroom cabinets, this article will give you a few tips to hopefully help you get the best of both worlds.
A Granite Countertop Slab
When people buy a slab for countertops in a big project like a kitchen, they may not use the whole piece, which means that the leftover remnants will go back to the granite place and sit there. Because of this, you can go to a countertop slab place and pick out a remnant for a fraction of the price. The thing with granite countertop remnants is that because they come in all different sizes, it may take you a while to find a slab that fits your exact size of bathroom vanity. Try going back to the slab place every week or so to see if they have gotten a new remnant in until you find the one that best suits your style and taste.
Bathroom spaces are pretty small which means that you will not need a lot of tile in order to lay a new floor. Because of this, you may be able to find tile that is on sale at a local tile store or a home improvement store. When you are measuring for new tile, just make sure that you buy an extra 5 to 10 square feet just in case your tile person needs to make different cuts and adjustments.
Paint Your Bathroom Cabinets
While a new bathroom vanity may be in your dreams, it may not be in your budget. Luckily, because you are getting new countertops, you can transform the look of your vanity without having to replace it. To really make it look like new, try painting it. Just remember to both sand and prime your cabinets before you put the first coat of paint on them. That way, they do not ding as easily and they last a lot longer.
