Avoid Changing The Layout.
If the existing layout and square footage of your bathroom satisfy your needs, leave the facilities where they are. You can always replace the finishes but moving things around is an invisible expense that will quickly drain your budget. By resisting the urge to move major plumbing and electrical, you’ll save a bundle on the overall price of the project.
Replace The Tub With A Shower.
If you feel like your builder-grade bathtub/shower combo feels cramped and outdated, you’re not alone. Many homeowners replace their tub with a standalone shower during a bathroom remodel. This spike in popularity means that a shower will increase the resale value of your home. One smart option is to install a multi-piece prefabricated shower made to fit most sizes and design aesthetics. Keep in mind that families with children may need at least one bathtub in their home.
Choose Energy-Efficient Fixtures.
Clever planning for a bathroom remodel pays off over the short and long term. While you may be tempted to keep some of your existing fixtures, a remodel is the best time to replace your toilet and faucets. Installing water-efficient fixtures will save you big time on your utility bill for years to come. Not sure where to start?

Opt For Inexpensive Lookalikes.
Innovations in technology have given us more material options that look like the real thing. For example, some vinyl plank flooring can fool even the most trained eye into thinking it’s real wood. You could also consider manmade quartz countertops that give you the look of natural stone at a fraction of the cost. In the end, “cheap” doesn’t necessarily mean “low-value.” Foster’s experienced designers can ensure that you’re selecting quality materials that will perfectly suit your needs and budget.
