So, are you ready to redesign and redecorate your bathroom? Do you want to get the maximum out of your budget? The good news is that you do not need to spend a fortune to completely transform the look of your bathroom. There are many bathroom remodeling ideas that you can explore on a budget.
Before jumping on the remodeling bandwagon, you must first decide upon your budget. The budget calculation will help you determine the nature and extent of the changes that you can make. In case your budget is low, consider sticking to some cosmetic changes like a new sink, new fixtures or new paint. Below are some inexpensive and easy bathroom remodeling ideas you can use to transform your bathroom into an oasis.
Limit Your Tile
Changing or adding tiles can be expensive, especially if you are hiring a contractor to get them installed. In order to save money, it is advised to reduce the amount of tile by just focusing on high impact areas such as floor or inside the shower stall-walls. Alternatively, you can also consider tiling one vertical or horizontal strip on the wall and you can paint the rest. For those who want to get more artistic, use it alongside the set of cheaper tiles. Artistic tiles will be more noticeable, as well as help you save loads of money.
Updating things like towel racks, faucets, and lighting are easy and affordable ways to transform the appearance of your bathroom with minimal financial and time commitment.
Freshen Grout and Caulk
This is another often overlooked but important detail. Grout and caulk tend to get grimy over time. By simply rubbing and cleaning them and adding straight lines of caulk, you can add some sparkle for just few dollars. Making just this small effort will surprise you with the outcome. Grout and caulk can be bought for a reasonable price and make an impact to revive your bathroom.
Go Green with some Upgrades
Low flow toilets; showerheads and sinks will not just help conserve water, but also save money. In addition to this, water-saving faucets and showerheads often cost less than typical ones. Thus, you would not have to spend much money here. You can search for some recycling ideas online and do them yourself to make some little upgrades.
Saving On Your Counter Tops
Since a bathroom is smaller in size, you can save some money by choosing more affordable counter tops. Instead of choosing expensive granite, you can choose the equally beautiful Formica, which comes in many colors and designs. We recommend homeowners choose neutral colors like black, tan, brown, and beige.
If you are set on choosing granite for your counter tops, consider purchasing slabs that contain some imperfections. Remember that your the wash basin will take up a wide surface area, so the imperfect area will be hidden pretty well.
