Inexpensive Ideas for Remodeling Your Bathroom
Updating your bathroom doesn’t have to take thousands of dollars. If you DIY, you could do some little things that will add to big changes. Here are five inexpensive ways to remodel your bathroom and give it a fresh, new look for 2020.
1. Paint the Town, er bathroom.
Repainting your bathroom is the single cheapest way to remodel your bathroom. A bold color combined with exotic art would transform the area, without doing anything else. However, prepping the bathroom to paint takes a little more time since you have to tape everything and carefully paint around mirrors, the tub or shower, sink, the toilet, etc. Note that using a high-quality paint with a satin finish is best since mold and mildew can easily develop in a bathroom.
2. Update Fixtures
Another reasonably inexpensive change to your bathroom includes upgrading your fixtures. Changing out your light fixtures, towel racks, sink faucets, and drawer pulls require a small investment that delivers big results. You don’t have to get something new. Taking something old and repurposing it can give your bathroom a modern feel that costs you nothing but adds a certain charm to the area.
3. Get New Countertops (For Cheap)
It seems everyone is buying granite for their countertops. While new ones for a kitchen will run you thousands, bathroom countertops drastically cut the price since they are small. If you don’t mind about the color or getting the perfect slab, you can choose slabs containing imperfections, which lowers the price. You can also repurpose something old, such as an old dresser as a sink pedestal. If you DIY it, you can save thousands of dollars.
4. Cut Back on Tile
Tile is expensive, so the less you use, the more you save. Limit the amount of tile you have, focusing more on high traffic areas, such as flooring, and not inside shower stall walls. You could do half-and-half — tile a few horizontal strips along the wall and then paint the rest. Accent tiles are less expensive and still add an artistic flair to your bathroom.
5. Recaulk and Grout
The least expensive way to freshen up your bathroom is by using caulk and grout. Cleaning the grout and adding straight, clean lines of caulk around the tub, sinks, and toilet will make a big impact that costs you about $10.
