WASHINGTON - If your home needs renovations, you'll find prices on some bathroom and kitchen items have dropped significantly.

If your bathroom needs an overhaul, the the prices of granite sink-tops and porcelain sink have dropped significantly, according to SmartMoney magazine.

It also costs less than it used to to install one of those high-end spa showers with multiple heads.

In the kitchen, counter installation prices are down. The price of custom cabinets declined.

If you're thinking of creating an outdoor room, consider buying a gas fire pit instead of a masonry fireplace. Fire pits cost less, and many can be moved if you decide to change your layout.
