It's no hidden secret in the renovation and rehabilitation world, bathroom remodeling jobs are incredibly expensive and, what's worse, this often prevents people from completing even the smallest of jobs in fear that they simply don't have enough capital to do it right.

Well, we're here to tell you that remodeling your bathroom doesn't have to cost five figures. It is very possible to make vast improvements to your space without taking out a second mortgage.

Here are five cost-effective, and simple to apply, tips to help you remodel your bathroom while increasing your return on investment (ROI).

Size Matters Not

A highly effective bathroom that functions in an efficient manner can be just as useful as increasing the square footage of a bathroom (but cost thousands less). Reorganize and re-equip where it fits best; remove things that limit room; modify for maximum space. The reward will pay for itself.

Natural Light Pleases

If your bathroom doesn't have a window, but you wish it did, then consider adding natural light before you take to cutting a hole in a wall. Products that simulate light from out-of-doors can fool our brain, and cost far less than a new window.

Demolition is Rehabilitation

By far the most cathartic (plus simplest and cheapest!) way to save on a bathroom remodel is to do your own demo. All you really need is a quality reciprocating saw, a sledge hammer, and a "proceed with care" attitude, and you can save thousands not hiring it out.

Repurposing Goods

To save big, ask your contractor or sub-contractor if they know of any sources where there was leftover goods for you to use. Many times on larger jobs resources are over-bought. This is a great way for you to get some quality, unused hardwoods and fixturing for cheap.

Save on the Back-end

Just like saving money on demo, you can apply the same methodology to finish work as well. No need to hire someone to insulate, clean-up, or paint, those types of jobs can be completed in mere hours, but can save you hundreds if not thousands when your "DIY it." Pitch in and save big!
