There's many homeowners who prefer to restore their home décor wherever possible. Salvaging a vanity is almost an ideal bathroom renovation project because of these factors:
– Purchasing a brand new vanity and having it installed professionally is a project that can cost upwards of $1,000. On the other hand, hiring a renovation company to re-sand the cabinet doors and install new faucet fixtures won't set you back more than about 2 days of labor. The money saved on buying a vanity can be put towards modernizing the bathroom light fixtures and other appliances.
– Throwing away an old vanity countertop takes up a lot of space in landfills and when combined with old toilets and tubs, a bathroom remodel can be a very environmentally damaging project.
– Bringing an outdated vanity back to life is a great way to show off your creative side in addition to saving money and easing environmental pressure. Thinking outside the box or finding cool ideas online to give the bathroom a makeover is a great talking point for guests and can get you started on the way to other DIY projects.
Much like other projects around the house, a number of things must be taken into account when deciding on how to tackle a bathroom vanity. Budget, city codes, and current home décor all determine the best route for homeowners. That being said, it doesn't have to be the black and white decision of whether to purchase new or renovate. For instance an old clothes dresser or cabinet can be fashioned into a vanity or there could be none at all with a free standing sink.
Make sure you're comfortable with your decision, after all you have to look it in the mirror each morning. For more help and ideas on bathroom renovations give us a call.
