Home renovations, especially bathroom remodels, take a toll on homeowners, largely due to unmet schedules and high costs.
According to Remodeling Magazine, the national average cost of a bathroom remodel is around $16,000; this includes tile work, a new bathtub, a built-in sink, and a vanity top. But what if we tell you that an affordable bathroom redesign could be in the cards too?
A leaner, low-cost bathroom remodel can make your old, dingy bathroom cleaner, low-maintenance, and functional. Here are six ideas that will kick it up a notch even if you’re on a budget.
1. Repaint the Wooden Floor
If you have wooden floors in your bathroom, a quick repaint can make them as good as new. Instead of replacing the floor with an expensive tile alternative, paint a protective enamel coat on the hardwood to save time, energy, and money.
2. Refresh Cabinets
Buying and installing new storage cabinets is expensive and time-consuming. A faster, more efficient way to go about this is to breathe new life into your bathroom cabinets by replacing the hardware. New drawer handles, accents, and decorative lining, or a cabinet repaint can all liven up your space.
If you want to revamp the vanity top, seek lower-cost alternatives to granite such as laminate, quartz, stone, ceramic, and porcelain tiles.
3. Reglaze Instead of Replace
When planning a low-cost bathroom remodel, replacing the whole sink and bathtub shouldn’t be your priority.
Luckily, we have a more efficient and highly functional alternative for you! Opt for reglazing or refinishing services to revamp your bathtub.
Especially if you’re dealing with cosmetic issues like stains, discoloration, and minor cracks on your bathtub, a new lining and reglaze can quickly fix the problems.
4. Install a New Faucet
Replacing the old sink faucet with a new, shine one is a trick that many DIY home designers use. Swapping the faucet out helps you revamp your bathroom’s look by adding a metallic sparkle to your existing vanity without spending a lot.
5. Get Creative with Décor
Take your bathroom interior up a notch with stylish yet inexpensive décor items. Here are some ideas:
- Installing a wainscot will help you prevent damageto the lower half of your bathroom’s walls. It also covers cosmetic holes and dings and saves you the hassle of repainting.
- Maximize the space under your sink by increasing storage space.
- Go bold with cabinet and drawer knobs.
- Add some mirror accents on the wall.
- Install an exposed shower head for a modern touch.
