There are many ways to save money during a bathroom remodel, but don't make the mistake of sacrificing quality in the wrong places, like heavily used bathroom features. It's worthwhile to invest in a bathroom that will last. When remodeling your bathroom, be sure to provide an adequate budget for these necessary bathroom features so you don't find yourself paying for replacements or repairs in the near future.
Bathroom Features To Invest In
In the end, the bathroom is only as useful as it’s effectiveness. What’s the point of having a beautiful bathroom if the faucet handles stick, or if the finish fades and peels? Invest in faucets that aren’t too hard to turn on or off. Check the inside of the faucet to ensure it’s made from a material that will last through long years of water exposure.
Like with faucets, a bathroom is only as useful as it’s main appliance – the toilet. If your toilet is broken or leaking, it’s time for a replacement, particularly if you have a toilet that’s over ten years old and may be costing you more than you realize. The toilet is one of the bathroom features you should invest in for higher quality.
Is your old tub or shower stained and chipped? If it makes you wince every time you step inside, it’s time for a replacement. Invest in a tub or shower combination that works best for you and your family, whether that means replacing a cracked tub, or converting it into a walk in shower or walk-in tub. Choosing your type of tub/shower is the most important step in your bathroom remodel.
You don’t have to break the bank on a new vanity, but it’s important to invest in a quality appliance. After all, the vanity is used as often (if not more so!) than the toilet and the shower. Find a vanity with a countertop that won’t quickly accumulate stains, scratches, or chips. Additionally, check that the drawers of the vanity open and close properly and are made from a material that won’t warp in the wet bathroom environment.
Safe bathroom flooring should be a priority in every home. Though a variety of bathroom flooring types are available, investing in non-slip surfaces should be a priority. Also, consider the benefits of radiant heat flooring.
