However, don’t try this with sink and shower fixtures as it costs more to refinish them than to replace them. Refinishing these fixtures is more expensive because very few people decide to do it unless they have old, vintage pieces, and contractors who offer this service often charge a premium price.
Right now, one of the biggest trends in bathrooms is also one that budget DIYers can pull off with style. The trend is using old dressers as sink pedestals. You simply cut out the top of the dresser to accommodate a sink insert, cut into or remove interior drawers as necessary, and cut holes in the back for plumbing. These “dresser sinks” can sell for thousands of dollars in retail stores, but you can easily make your own with a budget dresser, some patience, and the right tools.
If your bathroom is an awkward shape or features a niche you’re unsure how to utilise, a built-in vanity unit could be the perfect solution. Ask a joiner to design a cupboard that occupies the whole space, concealing pipework and creating storage to suit your specific needs.
However, let’s say you do have some vintage bathroom fixtures or an old tub you don’t want to get rid of. The good news? You can refinish them yourself if they’re made of porcelain, cast iron, or fiberglass. That said, it takes time and some investment. A basic DIY refinishing kit will run you $150, but you’ll also need additional supplies such as a sander, a spray gun, face masks, paint brushes, etc. You can see a good, basic tutorial for DIY refinishing
