Although it probably sounds a little intimidating, most people can switch out a light fixture safely and successfully, if they’re careful and follow the instructions. And what a difference fresh lighting makes, especially in the bathroom! This DIY bathroom remodel idea is small and simple, and it can often be done in under an hour, and it really makes such a difference in the brightness and updated feel of the bathroom. Lighting is key in the bathroom, so be sure you’re opting for light that is bright enough, but not too bright, and also designed for high-moisture areas.
Want to save some big bucks remodeling your bathroom? Consider refinishing existing items such as your bathtub, shower, sink or tile. With refinishing, you’ll only pay a small fraction (as little as 10 percent) of the cost of replacement. Your bathroom won’t be torn up for weeks, you'll avoid the big renovation mess and you’ve put one less big ol’ tub in the landfill
The cost to demo a kitchen can vary depending on how much of the space you’re demolishing. A full kitchen demolition, including plumbing moving costs, can cost anywhere from $1,205 to $2,160. But if you are only demolishing part of your kitchen, or keeping your plumbing as-is, your costs may be much lower. The following table provides a breakdown of how much a partial kitchen demolition might cost:  
Try to use all the space of your bathroom as much as possible, if your bathroom is on the smaller side, then you have to unleash your creativity in order to design the space and make it look larger. Glass doors for tubs and showers are perfect if your purpose is to open up the room, and the pedestal sinks are ideal since they occupy lesser space when compared to cabinets.  All cabinets and tower cabinets above the toilets, as well as towel racks are perfect for those who need storage, but who don’t have much space to work with.
Facing Style. Do you prefer a flat finish cabinet, or door with more architectural detail such as inset panels and curved moldings? This decision will impact future cleaning needs. Consider this decision carefully. Current Sales include mid-range prices featuring Colline Cinnamon. It includes a striking cabinet facing, hopper cabinets above and open shelving.
Another thing to keep in mind is the cost of demolition debris removal. There are a number of disposal options available, but the most cost-efficient option for large amounts of debris is a dumpster rental. The cost to fill an entire junk removal truck with debris can be $500 or more. Alternatively, you can remove more junk with a 20 yard dumpster for $415 on average with prices as low as $262 in some areas, allowing you to free up more room in your budget for other kitchen remodeling to-dos.
Example 1 – Reinforced acrylic shower pans – The shower base is the foundation of your shower. If it fails, you’re SOL. I’m guessing you know what that means – big bucks to replace EVERYTHING! So, get a base which is built to last without spending too much. One product I’d look at are reinforced acrylic shower pans. While they’re cost-effective, the acrylic is formed over an MDF (Multi-Density Fiberboard) core ensuring it won’t break down (or crack) on you.
A kitchen island is typically included with a cabinet installation. However, if you’re looking to upgrade your kitchen or shave some costs off your remodel, you could build one yourself. A very basic kitchen island can cost under $500 depending on the materials you use. You’ll need some previous construction knowledge and plans so you have an accurate size for your space. Always measure twice, because you’ll only have one cut to make it accurate.
And when it comes to installation, wallpaper is an option that almost anyone can install. Tile can be a little harder for the inexperienced to install: cutting, positioning, grouting, and finishing must be exact for a polished look. Wallpaper, on the other hand, is pretty much a grab-and-glue situation. Plus, there are wallpaper options these days that look and even feel upscale at a more affordable price (large florals in particular are popular upscale choices). 
Thanks for these remodeling tips. I didn’t know that it’s important to make sure that your new bathroom is ventilated properly especially if it can help prevent mildew buildup. I’m kind of interested to learn more about how to take this consideration into the initial planning of the project, and how to determine where the best location of the vent should be.
Thanks for talking about the small details like air circulation in bathrooms. I never knew that you have to plan things like the mirrors around circulation, but now that I know that, I definitely want to get a professional remodeling contractor to do it for us. They would know what to look for and be able to do it well, so I’ll just leave it up to them! The air circulation in our bathroom right now is not very good, so that’s something I’d like to fix in our remodel.
