We can also provide you with a few budget-friendly bathroom renovation tips that can help ease away huge expenses.
Set Limits on Bathroom Tiles
When choosing tiles, focus first on high-impact areas such as your bathroom floor. Bathroom walls can be done using cheaper tiles and if you have your heart set on expensive design tiles, then these tiles can be used as a single layer accent or be placed randomly on some parts where they can serve as small highlights. You can also tile one horizontal strip along your bathroom wall and simply paint the rest. These are tiling options that will allow you to save more money and at the same time keep your bathroom design updated.
Upcycle Old Materials
Sometimes old does not mean ugly, and there are a lot of materials available inside your own home that can be upcycled and repurposed. For example, an old dresser can be reused as a sink pedestal, and mason jars as soap dispensers. There are a lot of useful things that can also be upcycled for decoration purposes and all you need is imagination and creativity.
Save on Counter Tops
If you intend to purchase granite countertops for your bathroom vanity, then it would be more practical to buy granite slabs with slight imperfections so if the imperfection is located where the sink or faucets will be then you won’t see it anyway.Imperfect granite slabs are typically sold at a cheaper rate. Also, consider and price out a wider swath of colours apart from the expensive ones. Just make sure that it will also match your bathroom colour and theme.
Small details matter and upgrading fixtures such as your lighting, sink faucets, drawer pulls, tissue holders, and towel racks will make a huge difference to the looks of your bathroom. These are minimal investments; however, if you still don’t have a lot of budget for these, you can always find cheaper ones that are slightly used but still good or find a good supplier that sells for a cheaper price.
Repainting your bathroom can be a cheaper alternative however, it may take longer since there are a lot of nooks and crannies, and small details that you need to pay attention to. Likewise, using cheap paint can be damaged quite easily because of exposure to moisture. It would be wise to use a high quality kind of paint with satin finish and something that would work to keep moisture out.
