Every now and again, you might want to renovate your bleak-looking bathroom – but what we know about these kinds of renovations is that they are not very cheap. In fact, they can be quite expensive. However, you can easily give your bathroom a “facelift,” as long as you replace and remodel the right things. Here are some budget bathroom renovation ideas that you will surely find charming.
Paint the Walls and Cabinets a New Color
There’s no better way to give your bathroom a lift than by painting your walls and cabinets a new color. Try coming up with a fresh shade – one that will complement the color setting of your bathroom. Ideally, you might want to go for a softer color scheme, for example, to choose white cabinets, as it will make the room seem bigger.
Paint the Wooden Floors
If you had the budget, you probably would have replaced your wooden floors entirely with new engineered wood or tile. However, since you are probably low on cash, you might want to brighten and give your floors a refresh by painting them with a protective enamel layer. Wood is generally not the best choice for bathroom floors, but if you have such a floor, then this tip should make your bathroom last much longer.
Install a Wainscot
If you want to protect the lower half of your wall but do not have the budget to go through a whole tile remodel, then you might want to install a wainscot instead. These boards can go as high as 48 inches and can be a lifesaver if you have imperfections or holes across your bathroom wall.
Decorate Your Walls with Wallpaper
Bathrooms are meant to be an oasis where we can relax after a long day – so, obviously, when you are in your bathtub staring at the walls or playing water balloon games, you want to make sure that you are at least looking at something pretty. Wallpaper is a less expensive option in comparison to tile if you want to make a statement with your walls – and the advantage here is that there are many models for you to pick from. You can add various decorative details without having to blast through your whole budget.
Use Smaller Scale Bathroom Fixtures
Does your bathroom feel cluttered and with barely any space to move? The good news here is that you won’t have to break any walls in order to make it feel bigger. You just have to replace some of the fixtures with some smaller or space-saving ones. A smaller sink can give you move space to move around, a smaller mirror might look cuter – you may even get a small tub if that’s what you want. It will completely change the way in which your bathroom looks, and you won’t even have to spend fortunes to reach your preferred result.
Go for Laminate Countertops
When you have a small budget and you want your bathroom to look fancy, then you might want to try laminate countertops. It’s much cheaper in comparison to granite, and you can find it in various faux designs. As alternatives, you might also want to try quartz, faux stone, or porcelain tiles. They look just as good, but without drilling a major hole through your budget.
Add New Faucets and Light Fixtures
In most cases, it’s the faucets that make your bathroom look old and wrinkly. For this reason, you might want to try replacing them with some shiny (or not) new ones. Match them with some new lighting fixtures, and your bathroom look will change from boring to classy. And you won’t even have to spend too much to make everything look amazing.
Ditch the Tile
Tile going all the way from the floor to the ceiling might look beautiful. However, this kind of change can also be quite expensive. If you are on a budget, go for vinyl or linoleum flooring instead. It can look just as good but without the extra expense.
