Tile is another material that you touch and feel each day. While you can find quality options for $5 per square foot, super cut-rate tiles may have slight size inconsistencies. The results will be crooked lines that make a bathroom look shoddy. So where can you save? Light fixtures tend to perform the same across most price points—it's the high design that costs more. You might also find that opting for a basic finish on faucets and fixtures saves you hundreds of dollars without compromising quality. And you definitely don't need to blow your budget on a luxury toilet, like Kohler's $6,390 Numi, with its motion-activated lid and built-in bidet. Those are cool features, but toilets costing as little as $300 delivered the best flush in our tests.
Install a drop-in or hand-painted sink into a free-standing cabinet or chest. It will look like a separate piece of furniture. Or drop a custom-designed sink into a marble or solid-surface countertop for an elegant look. The newest look in bathroom sinks shows a large bowl mounted on the top of a bathroom counter. Artists and designers are using all sorts of material, such as marble, hand-blown glass, gold-leafed glass, or shiny metals. Before selecting a sink of this design, be sure that the height will be convenient to use and that the bowl will be safe. Lighting, by all means, get rid of that yellowed fan- heater-overhead light that's hanging in the middle of your bathroom. Lighting for a redesigned bathroom (and other rooms, as well) is more directed at work areas. Soft light for a soaking bath can be achieved with a wall dimmer connected to any lighting. Choose some beautiful wall sconces for either side of the mirror, a sparkling chandelier for overhead, or place a small table lamp on the counter or dressing table area.
Avoiding these seven common goofs could save you thousands of dollars on the project, especially if you're planning an upscale remodel. You're also likely to enhance the comfort, style, and efficiency of the finished project. Don't rush the process. Now that you're committed to the idea of a new bathroom, you probably want it done tomorrow. But poor planning is the leading cause of cost overruns on these projects. “Nothing is more expensive than doing things twice,” says Elizabeth Goltz, owner of Design by Orion in Kansas City. Depending on the size and scope of your bath project, you should spend several weeks to a few months on the planning process. If you don't have a Pinterest account yet, consider one. This website lets you keep a digital ideas file of inspiring images you find on the Internet, say for tile styles, favorite fixtures, and clever designs.
