Planning Your Bathroom Remodel
Before getting started on your bathroom remodel design, start by considering your biggest remodel concerns.
Asking yourself these questions will inform your decision-making process during the remodel:
- Are you concerned about energy savings?
- How committed are you to eco-friendly solutions?
- Does your plumbing need to be repaired or altered in some way?
- Are mold and mildew a concern?
- Are you in need of additional square footage or a new layout?
- Do you need more storage space?
- Are you thinking forward to resale value and market interest?
Bathroom Remodeling Ideas On a Budget
Once you’ve outlined your key priorities, it’s time to get down to the business of planning.
Here are just a few of our top budget-friendly bathroom remodel ideas!
1. Color Your World
A little color can go a long way. You’d be surprised at how transformative a fresh coat of paint on your cabinets or walls can be. Brighten up a drab, dark space with light neutrals or add an accent wall. And one of the best parts about new paint is how quickly it can be completed.
2. Add Subway Tiles
Few bathroom design elements embody class and simplicity like subway tiles. Update your dreary old shower stall with a wall of subway tiles, or transform the entire space by surrounding it in bright white tiles.
3. Update the Vanity
The vanity can set the tone for the entire bathroom space. Consider replacing your bulky old vanity with an attractive, free-standing alternative in a lighter shade. Update your mirror and sink and your space will feel brand new.
4. Bring in Art Wisely
Adding some metallic artwork to your bathroom can add to the aesthetic value. Framed pictures and posters can easily leave a touch of class on your bathroom walls.
Additionally, you can add some ceramic wall art or framed pictures displaying your family and loved ones. If you’re going with this tip, ensure that the frames are sealed with a water-resistant material.
5. Add More Storage
There is never enough space in bathrooms to store additional towels, linens, cleaning supplies, and toilet paper. By adding a fitting storage cabinet with an open shelf, small cabinet doors, and small drawers, you can clear the clutter from the sink and maintain a tidy bathroom.
If you are adding a storage cabinet to your bathroom, ensure the material is resistant to mildew and is ideal for a humid atmosphere.
6. Go for Affordable Tile
Tile options such as vinyl or laminate are cheaper than precious stones. So, they are an excellent substitute if you want a bathroom to remodel on a budget. In other words, opting for vinyl tiles can give your bathroom floors and walls a glamorous appearance.
You can also consider using peel-and-stick tiles to cover old floor parts or pealing paints in the bathroom.
7. Choose New Cabinet Hardware
If you have old cabinet hardware in your bathroom, you may need to consider changing the hardware entirely. This move might sound expensive, but it’s not.
Replace outdated hardware with fashionable items like brushed gold pulls or elaborate hexagon-shaped knobs for a touch of luxury without the price tag. Remember to select hardware that complements your plumbing fittings for a unified appearance.
8. Add a Bigger Mirror
Mirrors give the impression of a larger room, much like a fresh coat of white paint. A huge mirror might be added for reasons other than aesthetics. Using a large mirror adds a touch of glam and simplifies tasks that require your reflection.
