Splurge vs Save: Bathroom Remodel

Remodeling your bathroom is a great way to add some luxury to your home and ensure a greater return on your investment. Since there are so many facets of planning a remodel, have you ever wondered where to invest your money and where to cut back? We’re here to help! Here are some areas of where you should splurge, and where you should save:


Interior design of a bathroom  in new house

Tile: Background tile is just that–it’s in the background. Save your money there and use your budget to spend on some decorative eye candy like a vanity back splash or a focal wall of tile. This will give your bathroom that added “wow” feature without going over your budget.

Floor: The one thing you can’t skimp on is making sure your floor is slip resistant. Adding tile with texture and larger grout lines ensures for more traction and a safer floor–and they don’t have to be expensive. You don’t have to opt for the fancy heated floors unless you have money in your budget.

Cabinetry: Here is one area where you don’t want to skimp. Cabinets get a lot of wear and tear since they’re being open and closed all day long. You’ll want to make sure that you spend your money on cabinets and drawers that will withstand the test of time and can hold up well in a humid and damp environment.

Counter tops: If you want your counter tops to be the focal point of your bathroom, then choose surfaces like granite or quartz. Counter tops are one area that can really make a statement, so if you’re going to splurge, here would be your best area.

Plumbing Fixtures: There are so many options of plumbing fixtures these days, it can be hard to choose! While you might not need two vanity sinks, a fancy rainfall shower head and the top of the line faucet, this is one area you shouldn’t skimp on. You should never compromise quality. It’s worth getting a better model because it affects the flow and the finish and you’ll want it to last.
