For this project, DKW Designs owner Denise Wright had to keep her clients’ cost-effective wishes in sight at all times. Updating and remodeling a bathroom can get pricey fast, especially if you’re replacing major features. Wright shares some tips for people who want to follow in her footsteps.
Know Your Tub
Homeowners John and Cyd Everett knew immediately their built-in, oversized Jacuzzi tub had to go. If the case is the same for you, Wright says to spend a little time exploring your options: “Soaking tubs come in all different sizes and price points, so do your research.” Need extra help? She recommends a soaking tub with a recessed deck for a Roman tub filler as a more budget-friendly option.
Tile Your Walls
Painted walls are still important in any room design but for an added touch, choose an inexpensive tile to pair with them. Wright recommends changing the direction to create a pattern and add interest.
Be Savvy When Mirror Shopping
Adding a large, full-length mirror can give your bathroom a feeling of elegance and grandeur, but that doesn’t necessarily have to be reflected in the price. “Framed mirrors don’t have to be expensive to make an impact,” Wright says.
