Bathroom Renovation Ideas on a Budget

Bathroom Renovation Ideas on a Budget

There’s a misconception that a bathroom renovation will cost you thousands of dollars. The good news is, you don’t have to drop $15,000 to $20,000 just to update and redecorate your bathroom.

It’s actually possible to spend just what you can afford. This means you can salvage your outdated bathroom and turn it into something more interesting without having to break your budget.

Here are some easy and inexpensive bathroom design ideas you can use to achieve a modern look in your bathroom.

Consider painting the walls

Buying new tiles can cost you more than repainting. If you can’t afford to buy new tiles for the entire bathroom, you can instead keep your old ones and paint the bathroom a new colour that will make it look more modern.

If you really want to change the whole bathroom design, you can even paint the tiles, but don’t forget to clean, sand, and prime the tiles first before painting. A satin or gloss paint is recommended when painting over your tiles.

Change the fixtures

Sink faucets, light fixtures, towel rails, toilet roll holders, and door knobs are just some of the fixtures you can update around the bathroom. These items can be purchased at an affordable price at home improvement stores but you can save even more when you repurpose materials like old plumbing for your towel rail.

Buy second-hand or DIY

Buying second-hand goods from sites like eBay and Gumtree is a cheaper alternative to buying new for items like a shower screen, a mirror, a sink, and even bathroom fixtures. Etsy is another affordable online site where you can buy bathroom accessories. Or, if you’re artistic and creative, you can try Pinterest so you can DIY your very own bathroom essentials and accessories.

Be green with designs

Affordable bathroom renovations won't be complete without environment-friendly updates. Installing low-flow toilets, showers and sinks can save you water and at the same time save you big money on water bills. 

Redoing your bathroom at an affordable price is possible. Just keep an open mind, be creative and resourceful.
