Have you been dreaming of a home makeover? If you are looking for a way to transform your home this summer, then a remodel can do it. We have assembled a guide for how you can renovate your bathroom, especially if you are on a tight budget. Read on to find out more!
Don’t Use Too Much Tile
Bathroom remodeling typically involves adding or removing tile. Here’s a piece of advice for you: don’t use too much tile. Minimizing the amount of tile you use will help keep the project within the monetary bounds that you set before beginning to the project. For instance, tile the floor and not inside the shower, or only tile part of the wall and then painting the rest, as we will get into later on.
Save Money on Bathroom Counters
Another way to save money is on the bathroom counters. Although this sounds counterintuitive at first, it is possible! Tan, brown, and light beige are gaining in popularity, which means that they are going up in price. Use only a little bit of each, or choose a different color palette altogether. Look for slabs with easy-to-hide imperfections, which will also help keep the costs down.
Painting your bathroom is much cheaper than it sounds. It doesn’t cost much to buy paint and associated tools and supplies that you’ll need, like dropcloths and paint rollers. Even so, it might take longer than you would expect, even if the bathroom is a relatively small room compared to the rest of the house. Why might that be? You have to go slowly. Also, take care to choose special blends of bathroom paint that can resist the growth of mold and mildews.
Change Up the Fixtures
One of the easiest ways to refresh your bathroom is to change the fixtures that are in it. This goes beyond updating the light fixtures, although you can certainly do that. Spare some thought for sink faucets, towel racks, and drawer pulls. All of these details can lend your bathroom a more elegant or refined air without stretching your budget. Go online to do some research and come up with options you are interested in before scheduling your remodel to proceed.
