Places to Splurge for Your Bathroom
Flipping through magazines and pointing to what you want in a new bathroom is a fun place to start, but then it’s time to get down to the serious business of creating and sticking to a budget. It’s tempting to want to say yes to everything, but then you may blow your budget out of the water. If you’re on the fence about deciding which remodeling ideas stay and which go, here are a few suggestions for places where you should make room to splurge for your Colorado bathroom.
There’s no reason to break the bank by covering everything head to toe in expensive tiles. Instead, create a focal point by creating a backsplash behind the vanity or for one wall in the shower. Splurge on a small space and use a less expensive, basic tile for the remainder of the bathroom.
If there’s one thing in the bathroom you should spend a little more on, it’s the cabinetry. Cheap particleboard is exactly as advertised, cheap, and it really can’t cope with the wet environment of the bathroom. That doesn’t mean you should invest in the top-of-the-line custom cabinetry, but it does mean you should probably invest in cabinets that are at least a mid-level regarding quality.
You should never compromise when it comes to the plumbing fixtures. We’re not saying you need to invest in the ultra-luxury model of showerhead, but you do want to make sure that what you’re getting will last with frequent use for many years. You don’t want to get a chrome faucet only to find the chrome peeling away and exposing plastic underneath. Also, you want to test faucets to see if it’s the right flow for you.
Instead of investing in a double sink, you could choose to save on installation costs and just make the single sink stand out. Take what you would have spent on a double and put it into quality fixtures and a better sink.
