Money Saving Tips Back to top

If cost is a big concern, follow the steps below to save BIG on your bathroom renovation

1. Changing the layout of your bathroom will usually be the biggest cost as it will involve more complex plumbing work - If you can keep your layout as is, you'll make big savings.

2. Luxury fittings can also eat up a lot of your budget. To save money, stick to the basic range, and choose 1 expensive "statement" fitting to bring an air of class. 

3. Make sure to add timers to underfloor heating and towel rails to lower your power bills. 

4. Choose a contractor with proven experience. It's a well-known fact that builders will give very low quotes to undercut their competition and win the contract. This approach will usually lead to those builders cutting corners to ensure they can make a profit from the job, meaning the homeowner ends ups with a sub-par renovaton. Choosing a transparent company like Refresh Renovations, who creates a plan and custom budget breakdown up front will give you peace of mind that you know what you're paying for and what to expect. Refresh also focuses on professional project management, so wasted time will be kept to an absolute minimum - which results in even more savings.
