How to Renovate your Bathroom on a Budget

A lot of people may get intimidated by the idea of remodeling their bathroom, and in many cases, it is justified. You have to deal with many elements that you wouldn’t if you were renovating your living or bedroom for instance. It also can be challenging from a financial standpoint. Some just don’t want to go overboard on their bathroom only to see a minor increase in their home’s value. In this article, we’re going to give you a few tips to renovate your bathroom on a budget.

DIY What You Can

While plumbing can seem challenging to some, replacing a sink can be done on your own if you have the proper known-how. Even things that could seem difficult like troubleshooting or replacing an ejector pump can be done if you know where to look. Sites like The Plumbing Info are dedicated to DIY plumbing and have pages and pages of information for people who want to try their hands at plumbing. But whatever you do, make sure that you leave all your water elements in the same place if you want to save yourself a headache.

Dress that Mirror

People often underestimate how something as simple as adding a nice frame over a bathroom mirror can have a dramatic effect on its look. A nice frame will immediately make your bathroom mirror more luxurious by covering all flaws and adding another decoration element to the room. The corners and edges of mirrors tend to flake overtime, giving them a dated look. Framing them increases their longevity and gives a second life to old mirrors.

Don’t Go Overboard with the Toilet

Another great way to save money on bathroom renovations is by only investing in a new seat and lid without replacing the whole unit. Changing the seat and lid allows you to save money by eliminating the need for a new porcelain perch. Just changing these 2 elements will completely change the look of your toilet, only for a fraction of the price.

Go Vintage

The bathroom might not seem like the best place for antique furniture, or is it? If you want to create a stunning focal point in the bathroom, you could find a nice vintage dresser and convert it into a vanity. You can rest assured that no other person will have the same one as yours and it will give you bathroom a rustic, old charm feel.
Transforming a dresser into a vanity isn’t that difficult either. All you have to is carve out the space for the faucet, remove the drawers and connect the plumbing through the empty hole. Now create a false front by gluing the fronts over the empty drawer spaces, and Voila! You have a brand new antique vanity you can brag about to your friends.

As you can see, renovating your bedroom doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. All the tips in this article can be done on a limited budgeted and will give your bathroom a whole new look for a few pennies.
