Bath remodeling budgets can easily spiral out of control, but it doesn’t have to be like that. With some research and some simple tricks, you can easily remodel within a reasonable amount.

As a guideline, here is how the National Kitchen & Bath Association breaks down remodeling costs:
-Design fees: 4%
-Installation: 20%
-Fixtures: 15%
-Cabinetry and hardware: 16%
-Countertops: 7%
-Lighting and ventilation: 5%
-Flooring: 9%
-Doors and windows: 4%

-Faucets and plumbing: 14%
-Other: 1%

If you’re still concerned about the budget, here are a few simple tricks for your remodel:
-If you have tile, paint it with acid replacement. If you have wood, paint boards with a glossy porch paint. Either will refresh your flooring into looking brand new.
-Looking into installing a water-resistant wainscot. The boards are inexpensive and will preserve your walls.
-Add Roman shades. These are easy to install and take little fabric, but make a big statement.
-Carve out a wall cubby. That’s a lot of added space and helps the wow-factor for your bath..
