If you want to keep costs down without compromising on quality, here’s 3 things you can remove to slash you budget.
1. Tile to 1200H instead of to the ceiling. Save around $2k
Tiles are cosmetic. It’s no good having tiles to the ceiling that look great while everything else falls apart.
2. Go for a set-size vaity. Save around $1-3k
Set-size or “ready-made” vanities come in “set” sizes. Widths are usually set at 750mm, 900mm, 1200mm and 1500mm. These kind of vanities are much more limited in design, colours and basin options.
Any larger then 1500W and you might as well have the vanity custom-build
3, Down-grade to a semi-frameless shower screen. Save around $1k
90% of our customers wisely choose to invest in a 10mm frameless shower screen that looks awesome and lasts for many years to come.
Semi-frameless shower screens will do the job and look good. The downside is, the aluminium frame can deteriorate in as little as 3-4 years if you don’t stay on top of the cleaning.
Here are some ways you can cut costs if your NOT worried about your bathroom lasting or looking good:
1. Hire an unprofessional renovator with no guarantees
2. Don’t have any designs made up
3. Use cheap trades and don’t ask for references
4. Buy cheap materials online or from a bathroom outlet
5. Buy shower screens from Bunnings
6. DIY with little experience
7. Buy cheap, standard edge tiles on discount
8. Use grout where silicon should go
9. Use taps instead of mixers
10. Use cheap tile glue, grout and waterproofing
11. Use cheap drain covers
12. Leave the cornice and white plaster as is
and the list goes on…
