Refurbish Rather Than Replace

With quality pieces, you should invest in a professional refinishing job. It cost $700 to have this claw-foot tub sandblasted and reglazed. And while you can certainly get an acrylic drop-in for less, a new claw-foot made of the same cast iron could easily cost $1,900 or more.

Bonus Idea: Search the Web. This basket-­weave Carrara and black marble tile was just $9 per square foot on eBay.
