Bathroom renovations do not have to be costly endeavours. It is possible to do a simple bathroom remodel without breaking the bank.

Unless you happen to have a contractor on your payroll, this may require hiring additional hands. Moreover, if the contractor does not supply the necessary plumbing equipment, you will need to provide your labour force to install the items.
