A 2017 Houzz Bathroom Trends Study revealed upgrading the master shower is the number one trend among American homeowners. But when it comes to updating your bathroom, you have a lot of choices and some of them are very costly. Use the following tips about where to save and where to splurge to ensure you don’t needlessly spend money.
Plumbing Fixtures: Save
You don’t want to pick the cheesiest plumbing fixtures on the market. But, you can find a variety of elegant plumbing fixtures at reasonable prices. If you’re really looking to keep the cost of your update to a minimum, you can buy salvaged plumbing fixtures. In cases such as this, look to match the same colors to provide a more cohesive look.
There are a variety of showerheads available on the market ranging from rain showers and dual heads to handhelds and fixed. Each has its own perks, but the higher-end showerheads generally provide the best spray pressure with the highest water efficiency. While you might spend a little more upfront, the high-water efficiency can help you save money in the long run. It’s also good for Mother Earth.
Tile is praised by many for its elegant look. Unfortunately, tile is also very expensive and requires a lot of upkeep. If you really want tile, consider using it as a backsplash behind your vanity.
Spacious Shower: Save
You don’t have to break the bank to get an elegant and spacious shower that fits your needs. Bath Fitter’s semi-custom seamless designs can be molded to fit your existing space. They can be installed in as little as one day. And, they come in a wide variety of finishes so that you can get the look you want at a fraction of the cost!
