Believe it or not, you can upgrade your bathroom on a budget. These tips are great for home renovation during the pandemic, as they won’t require a full demolition! That way, you still have a place to use the restroom during your transformation. So, here are some out-of-the-box ideas that will give your bathroom the facelift it deserves. Not to mention, these small upgrades can increase the value of your home, as your bathroom will look like an expensive oasis any person would love to have.
Here’s how to remodel your bathroom:
Use Conservatively Priced Materials
Reusing and refurbishing any viable existing materials is always the best way to save on a remodel! Re-painting your cabinets, walls, and the door can bring your space back to life without a big monetary commitment. However, if you need to replace materials, it’s best to go with simple and inexpensive, yet timeless tile. This will level up your space and give you the fresh look you desire.
Refinish Your Tub
If you have a tub shower or a built-in tub, you don’t have to replace the entire thing in order to achieve a new look. Simply have your existing tub relined and refinished in order to restore it to its original glory! Refreshing items in your space will be your most cost-effective option when bringing your space up to par with current trends.
Install New Hardware
Changing out your current cabinet hardware will sophisticate your bathroom. Remember that if you go with a trendy finish such as satin brass or matte black, you should additionally switch out your toilet paper holder, any towel hooks, grab bars, and plumbing fixtures to match! This will give your entire bathroom that cherry on top pop that will give your friends bathroom envy. This touch really brings your bathroom back to life, and it is an easy thing to replace so you can always keep your bathroom up to date with the latest design must-haves.
Upgrade Your Toilet
Out of all of your bathroom appliances, your toilet is the most important. A dingy toilet can really ruin your newly-refurbished bathroom aesthetic, so if you are going to spend money on replacing something, this is the best appliance upgrade you can make to achieve the most bang for your buck! However, installing this appliance solo can lead to a myriad of complications. Not to mention, toilets are heavier than you think!
Switch To Low-Flow Fixtures
Now, this will cost you more upfront, but save you money in the long run. So, we thought we would include it here! Low-flow fixtures are 20% more water-efficient than traditional plumbing fixtures. This means big monthly reductions in your utility costs. From your toilet to your showerhead, switching these products out for eco-conscious alternatives will prove to benefit you and your family over time. If you are in your forever home, this is a great choice, as your yearly savings will more than offset the cost of installation! Don’t hesitate to go green when you remodel your space—it quite literally pays off!
