Ways to Save
Set priorities so you know where to allocate your dollars. For example:
- Don’t move plumbing or walls unless it will greatly improve the space.
- Have a clear set of specifications before comparison shopping.
- Be sure to compare exactly the same products, not just similar ones.
- The price for the same model of faucet, for example, will vary by finish.
- Granite prices vary by grade.
- Everyone shops online, but it’s important to visit showrooms and be sure what you see online is what you think it is.
And most important…
