There’s this idea that bathroom remodeling is ghastly expensive. And it can be. Anyone can spend a ridiculous amount of money on a home update if they want to.
The good news is – updating your bathroom doesn’t have to break the bank. You can affordably update your space without taking out a second mortgage.
Paint Your Walls
Hello facelift. Beyond a shadow of a doubt, paint is the easiest and most affordable way to breathe new life into any space, whether it be the bathroom, kitchen or a bedroom. Not only is paint relatively affordable, this is a DIY project you can definitely do yourself. Unlike plumbing and electrical work, which takes expertise to ensure safety, paint just requires time.
Paint Your Cabinets
Like your walls, your cabinets will also benefit from a coat (or two) of paint. Rather than rip them out and start over, painting them keeps the cost down, while offering a big impact.
Swap Out Light Fixtures
Old school light fixtures often cast funky shadows. Replacing them with a new, modern version is a quick and affordable way to update your bathroom. As an added benefit – you won’t need to call an electrician if you keep the same wiring. You simply remove the old and tired version and pop in the new, updated one.
Replace Your Bathmat
While you might be tempted to replace the whole floor, that can be costly. Simply replacing the bathmat can liven things up, without taking a big chunk of money. Because your bathmat gets used A LOT! So swap your old one for a new one and discover the difference.
A lot of old school bathrooms are equipped with a tub-shower combo. Replacing your tub-shower combo with a shower will open up your space. Selecting a provider that can create a customized, seamless shower (like Bath Fitter *cough* *cough*), keeps your cost down. It also means the update can be done quickly, because your old bath removed and your new shower can installed in as little as one day!
