Tricks For Bathroom Remodeling on a Budget

A home remodel project is a great way to spruce up your home and add a feeling of newness to the space. The bathroom is the perfect place to begin your home remodel process. It’s one of the smaller rooms in the home, but it’s also a room that requires great comfort ease of use. Because it’s a smaller space you remodel on a budget with no problem.

When it comes to bathroom remodeling on a budget, the very first thing you need to do is create a plan. Start by determining your budget and what you can afford for your bathroom remodeling project. Once you have a good picture of how much you’re able to spend, you can then easily plan your next move. Next think about the large ticket items you will need, for instance replacing the toilet, replacing the vanity, the shower, etc… When working on a budget, you might find that you have to be a bit more creative with your purchases and overall bathroom design.

Make a list of everything you would like to do and which items you want to change or replace the most. Start price shopping online and see how your list and prices measure up with your budget. If the list doesn’t come in at or under budget, then rate the items from one to ten, ten being the top priority and one the least priority in terms of what needs to be worked on first. Once you’ve assigned priority to everything on the list, you can either eliminate a few things or just start with the most important items and see where you end up after that’s all done and if you can add any of the extra lower priority things later.

Now the challenge is thinking about what new items or design style to employ in your bathroom. For instance, if you want a new bathroom vanity, what size will it be and what will it look like? It is important that you consider the size, style, design, color and materials of every item you wish to work on. If you have a small bathroom, it’s important that you pick furnishing and/or fixtures that have ample storage space and do not take too much room. There is now a wide range of styles that are more affordable. Modern and contemporary designs are best for remodeling projects on a budget since they are highly available and because of their minimalist style, they work in large or small spaces.

There are many other simple solutions to all kinds of bathroom dilemmas. Sometimes simply refurbishing the porcelain tub and adding a coordinating glass vessel sink and a striking vessel faucet will add life to a dull and old-looking bathroom. This is much less expensive than having to replace everything in the room.

So keep your priority list, your budget, and your measurements by your side while you shop and design and you will be sure to stay on budget and have a beautiful new bathroom to show for it in the end.
