As seasoned renovators know, the first step to any project is coming up with a budget. The hard part, as you start to tear down walls or chip away at layers of decades-old wallpaper, is sticking to your financial plan. Luckily, Wayfair’s Memorial Day sale is here to help. The shopping platform is offering up to 70 percent off select items in its inventory, and we’re focused on all the deals that are geared toward transforming the bathroom. Whether you’re just looking to refresh your faucet or preparing to tackle a gut remodel—vanity, shower, and all—here are a few of the discounted upgrades we have our eye on.
The Streamlined Shower Frame
Meridian Framed Fixed Glass Panel, Wayfair, $540 (was $780)
Goodbye, tub-shower combos; hello, wet room. In a tiny space, a glass partition creates the illusion of depth (plus it’s a lot easier to keep clean than a moldy shower curtain liner). You’ll just need to account for a slight slope in your floors so water can properly drain.
The Classic Floor Tile
Matte White/Black Metro Honeycomb Mosaic Wall & Floor Tile, Wayfair, $10.50 per square foot (was $14.40)
For a vintage feel, lay down a simple black and white honeycomb tile. See the time-tested material at work in this Cleveland kids’ bathroom, where it offers a hint of contrast to the plain white subway tile in the shower.
The Hackable Double Vanity
Deina 60″ Double Bathroom Vanity Set, Wayfair, $1,400 (was $1,900)
We’ve seen our fair share of sad vanities with little-to-no storage space, so believe us when we say investing in a double-sink version with three spacious drawers and two cabinets (with shelves inside!) will be a game changer. And if this one’s marble countertop isn’t your style, simply swap it out for a bolder stone like travertine, as designer Elisa Baran did with her Wayfair find in this Long Island bathroom.
The Designer-Approved Soaking Tub
Freestanding Soaking Acrylic Bathtub, Wayfair, $956 (was $1,073)
Even Sarah Sherman Samuel knows that treasure can be found in Wayfair’s pages. The Domino cover star has a similar standing tub from the same brand in her Michigan home.
The Floor-Mount Faucet
Trinsic Single Handle Floor Mounted Freestanding Tub Filler, Wayfair, $1,398 (was $1,997)
Nothing says luxury like a freestanding tub filler, and this chic champagne-hued Delta option is 30 percent off.
The Good-Looking Medicine Cabinet
Recessed Framed Medicine Cabinet, Wayfair, $180 (was $215)
Take it from designer Emily Henderson: If you have to go with a medicine cabinet, make sure it’s a sleek one. The rounded edges of this under-$200 number give it a modern look, plus it’s designed to be recessed into the wall unlike typical bulky versions. Your shopping cart is about to be a construction zone.
