Many homeowners desire these luxurious bathroom designs but don’t know how to do so on their own. I am going to show you a few ways to get the designer look in your bathroom for half the price!

Virtu USA um-3073-s-es Ava 71 Double Sink Bathroom Vanity

First, let’s start off with a side by side comparison to show you just how possible it is to source cheaper products without sacrificing style or quality. The Ava 71″ Double Sink Bathroom Vanity is one of the most popular items from Virtu USA, a well-known manufacturer of bathroom furniture. The Ava Double Vanity features a curved edge that differentiates itself from others.

Priced at $1,655.00, you can opt for a very similar product that is $250 cheaper. The 72″ Deluxe Grand Regent costs less and features a solid oak construction compared to the rubber wood composition of the Ava Double Sink Vanity. Best of all, these two vanities are virtually identical!

Curbless Bathroom Showers

Many homeowners are going curbless. Curbless showers are a great way to update your bathroom and give it that designer feel without experiencing price hike. When remodeling an outdated shower, you will often have to replace your shower enclosure anyway. Curbless showers make a tremendous difference without increasing the cost of your remodeling project. They are also one of the recommended tips to help make a small bathroom feel bigger.

Decorative walls can separate your bathroom from the rest.

This will reduce the costs of your bathroom update drastically while giving your bathroom the designer look that you’ve been dreaming of!
