According to HGTV.com, the average kitchen or bathroom remodel costs between $20,000 and $50,000. That’s enough to make many people think twice before undergoing such a project, but if you work with the plumbers at Pride Plumbing of Rochester, we can help you save a lot of money.
If you’re considering renovating your kitchen or bathroom, keep these tips in mind to save money:
- Don’t Move The Plumbing: It might be tempting to move your sink or toilet, but keeping the existing piping can end up saving you thousands. It’s possible to drastically improve the look of the room without moving these costly fixtures.
- Choose The Best Kitchen Faucets: There are plenty of faucet choices to consider during a kitchen or bathroom remodel. For example, you’ll need to select the type of handle you want, and then decide whether or not to include a filter. It might be tempting to run to the local hardware store to buy your new faucets, but most plumbers actually sell them at wholesale prices and can guide you toward the most affordable and stylish option for your remodel.
- Install A Bathtub: More and more homeowners are forgoing bathtubs in favor of walk-in showers when remodeling their bathrooms. While this might seem practical, understand that the lack of a tub in the bathroom will likely lower the resale value of your home.
- Consider Switching to a Tankless Water Heater: If you’re remodeling, it might be a great time to upgrade your water heater, too. Switching to a tankless water heater can save you an average of $160 a year when compared to conventional water heaters.
