If you’re ready to refresh and remodel your bathroom, but you don’t have five-plus figures to spend on a deluxe remodel, you can still update your bathroom in a stylish and functional way without breaking the bank. There are plenty of ways to get creative when you remodel your bathroom. The specific choices you make depend on your budget and how you are willing to finance the project. Once you know what you can afford, explore our guide below for tips on how to complete a reasonably-priced, but attractive bathroom remodel.
Limit Your Tile
Tile can get expensive, so to save money, you can limit the amount of tile by focusing on high-impact areas. For instance, this could mean tiling only the floor and not the floor and the shower stall walls.
Save Money on Countertops
Granite countertops are popular because the investment is relatively low compared to granite kitchen countertops. However, neutral colors are the most popular and therefore the most expensive. Consider a wider array of colors, and consider buying granite with imperfections. Depending on how you install your countertop, these imperfections may not even be noticeable.
Remodel Your Bathroom By Painting
Painting is the cheapest way to quickly remodel your bathroom. However, painting bathrooms does take a lot of patience and time. Additionally, it’s a good idea to invest in paint with a satin finish to help protect the walls from the moisture and humidity that can produce mold and mildew.
Updating small fixtures like lights, sink faucets, towel racks, and drawer pulls is a way to remodel your bathroom through relatively small investments. These items seem insignificant, but updating them can quickly refresh your bathroom’s entire appearance.
Freshen Caulk and Grout
Another small but important detail to consider when you remodel your bathroom is a grout and caulk update. By cleaning your grout and adding clean lines of caulk around your tub and sink, you can add a new look to your bathroom.
Go Green with Upgrades
Updating your bathroom appliances gives you an excellent opportunity to choose greener, more energy-efficient options. Low-flow toilets, sinks, and showerheads help you save money and conserve water. Additionally, these items often don’t cost much more than traditional fixtures. Upcycling products also helps reduce your energy consumption and waste production, in addition to saving you money. Any items you remove from your bathroom can also be donated to charities like Goodwill or Habitat for Humanity.
