Emma and Jack run Renovating the Broadway, where they give followers an insight as they renovate their 1930s semi. They detail their DIY exploits, as well as their kitchen extension.
Emma said: “All of that stuff I actually bought from eBay.
“The shower, the bath tap, everything that is matt black is from eBay for about half the price it would be at a normal shop.
“The whole suite was meant to be around £4,500 and I got it for £2,000.
“But with eBay shops, you have to wait for ages for it to be delivered from China.”
She advised renovators to “shop around.
“Amazon and eBay do really, really cheap fixtures and fittings. My sink was from Amazon.”
When asked the best bargain of the home so far, Emma said: “It’ll be the bathroom, absolutely, buying it all from eBay. Definitely, hands down.”
Renovating can be hugely expensive. Another couple told Express.co.uk how they managed to create a £60k house renovation for cheap without taking out a loan.
Liv Madeline and her partner are renovating their Zone 4 London flat on a budget.
The couple initially approached professionals but soon realised the costs would be huge.
Liv said: “We’ve been kind of doing things on a monthly basis.
“We have saved loads of money doing it ourselves, but I couldn’t tell you exactly how much we’ve saved, but we haven’t paid anything near the 50 to 60 grand we were originally quoted, nowhere near.”
