It doesn’t matter if you’re remodelling your entire home or just one or two rooms, renovation can get pretty expensive. If you’re anything like us, you don’t want to spend more money than you have to. So we’ve offered you these suggestions to help keep you on budget when you’re remodelling your bathroom.
Paint can go a long way
Affordable Bathroom Remodeling One of the most inexpensive ways to give your bathroom a fresh new look is simply to give it a new paint job. Not only will a new coat of paint update your bathroom, it will also make the room look cleaner too.
Besides being an inexpensive and quick way to liven up your bathroom, painting gives you other decorating options as well. Make sure to check out our “Simple Ways to Spruce Up Your Bathroom” post to learn how accent stripes can make the room really stand out!
Light up the room a bit
Luckily, most bathroom light fixtures are relatively easy and inexpensive to replace. This will not only contribute to the room’s new look, it can also light it in new ways. There’s one thing you should know about light fixtures: the images online don’t always do them justice. We recommend going to your local home improvement stores and checking them out in person. You’ll get a much better idea about how they will look in your bathroom.
Know your skill level
Doing a lot of the remodelling work yourself can save you a lot of money, but if there’s a specific part of the job you’re not comfortable with, there’s no shame in calling a professional. While you might be a great painter, you might not have any experience with electrical work. Using the services of a professional will not only ensure the job is done well, it will save you money in the long run.
Refinish what you can
When you’re planning your bathroom renovation, it’s important to decide what you can still use and what you can’t. If the tiles or fixtures in your shower are dirty rather than old or outdated, a simple deep cleaning might be all that’s needed. You’d be surprised how much difference this can make.
