We're actively soliciting suggestions for saving money on the following items, while still looking modern and awesome:
- Flooring for the stairs and masterbedroom
- Surface for the bathroom vanity that'll allow an undermount sink
- Bathroom floor
For the flooring we're looking at engineered hardwood veneer. The pre-finished, click-lock stuff will probably save us a lot on installation costs. I've seen talk of using cement-fiber siding as a floor. Is that nuts?
For the counter top we got a quote on a 3x2 ft. chunk of granite remainder. Per foot costs are lowish ($20) but installation is freaking me out. $900. Help!
The bathroom floor is a tough one, since we're still in love with the $12 sq.ft. Walker Zanger Melange . Maybe we can put some insanely cheap stuff on the walls/shower/surrounds in order to afford this stuff on the floor?
