If possible, the best way to keep costs bathroom renovation costs down is to keep plumbing fixtures in the same spot. Re-plumbing and remodelling pipes and fixtures can not only be time-consuming but end up being quite costly.
The room layout
Windows and doors can also be costly to move or restructure. Consider all the possibilities within the current room before looking at needing to reconfigure the layout.
Tapware, vanities, baths, mirrors and associated fittings can range hugely in price. Is it possible to use your current fittings? If you have a ceramic bath, it may be more cost effective to have it repainted rather than replaced. If you do need/want to replace fittings such as tapware, make sure you shop around. Specialty bathroom shops can be expensive, and you may find exactly what you are looking for at a warehouse or through professional resellers on ebay.
What can you do yourself?
Of course plumbing, electrical, tiling, and waterproofing require professional tradesmen, if you are handy there may be things you can do to keep costs down. Demolition or removal of vanities, tiles etc, repainting and hanging fixtures such as shower-shelves, towel rails and toilet roll holders are all minor jobs that can be done if you are handy enough.
