Default Small budget bathroom ideas

We are constructing a new house and I want to fit everything in a small budget. I have been doing research for months now. I want to know some of the areas where I can reduce the cost in an effective way.

Repaint existing cabinets. Go to Habitat for Humanity Resale store for new fixtures. This would allow you to update fixtures on a budget. They also sell lighting fixtures, so you could find sconses and even recessed lighting for cheap.

Lose the old plate glass mirrors in the bathrooms. Replace with framed mirrors found in TJ Max, Burlington Coat Factory, or Ross for Less.

Ask around about vanities - I have found that I could not even give my old one away and it was still in good shape. Contact some contractors.
