Keep your plumbing in place.
One of the most expensive parts of a bathroom renovation is labour, so reducing your need for it can save you a lot of money. The best way to do this is by keeping your plumbing in place and updating your furniture in their existing locations.
This makes the renovation quicker and easier, breathing new life into the space at a lower overall cost.
Upgrade existing furniture.

With a wide variety of fixtures and fittings available in a range of finishes, replacing your existing fixtures with more modern ones can make a dramatic difference to your space.
And you don’t need to stop there. Further enhance the space by changing your handles, towel rail, mirror and lighting too. You could even update your tiles and flooring at a relatively low cost.

Be open-minded. There are many high quality, high design, affordable bathroom brands available.
