How to Successfully Remodel Your Bathroom on a Budget

Remodeling Plumber

When it comes to your home decor, your bathroom might be the last room on your long list of “to-dos”. The reasons can vary, but for many homeowners, it’s due to their budget or a need to fix another issue first. Regardless of the reason, there are many small ways you can improve your home’s bathroom without breaking the bank. From adding storage to a quick coat of paint, here are some small, but impactful, ways you can update your bathroom:

Try a Fresh Coat of Paint

Known as a simple but very effective trick, adding a fresh coat of paint can bring life into your dull and dated bathroom. You can go with a new fresh color palette, or just repaint with the same color to cover any dents, streaks, or dings in the walls.

Frame a Mirror

Have a large but standard mirror? Reframe it to give it a wow factor. If it’s a large mirror, you can use shimmer tiles to create a border, or just simply buy an accent frame and reframe the glass to be the accent piece in your room.

Add More Storage

Struggling to find a place for your bathroom toiletries? Turn some wasted space into some much-needed storage. If you have a pedestal sink, you can add a curtain around it to hide odds and ends. Place shelving over your toilet, or multiple towel racks, above each other on the wall for more storage, too.

Consider a Fixture Upgrade

When’s the last time you’ve changed your sink faucet or showerhead? By upgrading to a more modern look, you can refresh your sink and possibly save some cash in the long run. You may even want to consider upgrading to water-conserving or low-flow products; they can significantly lower your water bill and are environmentally friendly, too.
