Update Your Master Bathroom on a Budget ~ whether you’re in Portland or anywhere else (Before & After photos)


Homeowners often wonder if they can update a master bathroom in a cost-effective way, finding solutions that will improve the look of the bathroom without breaking the bank.  Here’s a recent bathroom remodel our company did,  finding ways to cut costs and still get the results we wanted.

The look of this builder-original bathroom circa 2001 was BORING! For just over $3000, here’s what we did:

  • We replaced the 2 vanity faucets with Delta “Dryden ones;  cost = $135 x 2; replaced the tub faucet; cost = $245
  • Granite Transformations (many locations across the country) did a seamless overlay of granite Trend stone on the double vanity + the front & sides of the jacuzzi tub, directly over the tiles (no demolition), color Bianca Wintermute;  labor + materials = $2180
  • Painted the walls (Devine Mocha + accent wall Devine Cocoa, wood trim Dove White); cost = $300
