So the time for a bath remodel is here, and you are considering your budget. However, you would certainly not want to spend about $25000 building a deluxe bathroom since such this amount is light years far away from your original budget.
In case you have found yourself in such a situation, we’ve got a good news for you. Firstly, there is no reason why you should spend a couple dozen thousand dollars on a bathroom in case you aren’t a millionaire. Secondly, it is possible to build a very decent bathroom by remodeling your original bathroom within a budget of $3000 or even less. At first, however, it is suggested to get an advice from professional companies such as GoldenLine Construction regarding the budget and scope of your remodeling.
So if you do really want to remodel your bathroom, consider the following tips of doing it in a budget.
- Limit the number of tiles
Laying down tiles can be quite expensive, in case you do not know how to do that yourself. In order to save money, limit the number of tiles to be used. Instead of laying down tiles all over the floor, consider laying them down only in areas such as the shower stall.
For the walls, putting on a horizontal lining of tiles along the edges and painting the rest of the wall is a nice option. In case you do really want to lay down an aesthetically pleasing tile pattern that is expensive, combine it with some cheaper tiles.
This will allow the expensive and more aesthetically pleasing ones to stand out from the rest.
- Save on the countertops
Nowadays, granite countertops are very much in fashion. Because countertops in the bathroom are quite small as compared to countertops in the kitchen, you will certainly not have to spend a lot on them.
In order to save more, avoid neutral colors such as light beige, brown, and tan. Since these colors are more popular, they also happen to be more expensive as compared to the rest. So avoiding these colors can help you in saving a great deal of money.
- Save on the paint
In case you do not want to go for a full remodel, you may as well avoid a tile lining on the walls and go for a full paint. A new paint is perhaps the cheapest and most efficient way of remodeling your bathroom.
Although, do consider a warning. A paint can significantly take more time than you really think. This is because a paint on the bathroom walls is a slow and tedious process. Hence, you cannot expect it to finish anytime soon. Apart from that, in case you have a single bathroom in your house, you may not be able to use it properly for as long as the painting process goes on.
- Update the other fixtures
It is possible to update small fixtures such as the towel racks, the cabinets, and other similar fixtures in order to give your bathroom an all-new look. These items require a relatively small investment in comparison to other updates. As a result of this, you may get a whole different look without having to spend thousands of dollars.
If you don’t have a lot to spend, then repainting will be the cheapest and, perhaps, the most effective way to give your bathroom a new look.
