Remodeling Your Bathroom on a Budget

By: Will Anderson

Your master bathroom is an essential part of your home; for some people, it is an oasis. It’s typically your first stop before you go out and attack the day. It’s where you go to make sure you put on a presentable face for the world, and for some, it’s where you go at the end of the day to relax with a nice long soak and glass of wine.

A survey conducted by revealed that the average adult would spend 416 days in the bathroom over their lifetime. With all that time you’re spending in the bathroom, wouldn’t you want it to have the right feel? A complete bathroom remodel can be very expensive. However, there are so many ways you can give your bathroom a small facelift on a slim budget.

The first thing you should do is give your bathroom a deep clean and recaulk the tiles. This may sound simplistic, but it is the best place to start. Especially if you have an older bathroom, a nice deep clean and recaulk can make it look brand new. On top of that, caulk and cleaning materials are very affordable and very easy to apply.

If you’re remodeling your bathroom on a budget, then painting is probably the cheapest and most effective way to do so. On top of the cost of paint, a paintbrush and painters tape, the only other things you need is time, patience and attention to detail. Keep in mind that you will have to be meticulous when painting around windows, showers, mirrors and toilets.

Another way you can spruce up your bathroom without breaking the bank is by updating your fixtures. You might think small items like light fixtures, towel racks, sink faucets, door handles, mirrors and drawer handles go unnoticed. Changing them up, though, can update the ambiance of your bathroom. Updating all of these small details is very affordable and could easily cost less than $200.

Fresh accessories are another way to update your bathroom. You could find a colorful shower curtain and paint to match as an easy way to spruce up your décor. Then, tie it all together with a new bathmat, throw rugs, candles and colorful soaps.

So get your home spa on, and get creative!
