Limit Your Tile
One way to lessen your remodeling cost is to limit the number of tiles and just focus on the high-impact areas such as the floor. You can also tile one horizontal string on the wall and paint the rest.
But if you want to use a tile that is artistic and expensive, you may use it as an accent together with a cheaper tile. In this way, artistic tile will be noticeable, and you can save a ton of money.
Repainting is the cheapest and most effective way to give your bathroom a new look. However, you have to keep in mind that this method will take time and patience. Also, you have to consider the moisture. Mold and mildew develop quickly in a room where humidity and temperature often change, just like the bathroom. Invest in high-quality paint with a satin finish to prevent the growth of mold.
Do Not Buy New, Redo
Instead of replacing your old tub or shower which will cost you more, it is better to have them professionally relined, which is much cheaper. However, do not refinish your sink and shower fixtures as they cost more to refinish than replace them. They are expensive to refinish because only a few people do it unless they have vintage pieces, and contractors charge a premium price for this service.
One of the best ways to lessen the remodeling cost is to buy used furniture. Scour on sites where you can buy used items for your bathroom or head over to the nearest second-hand shop where you can find cheap, used items you can use for your bathroom.
Go Green with Upgrade
An environment-friendly update in your bathroom will not only help you conserve water, but it will also help you save money. You can install low-flow toilets, sinks, and showerheads, and they usually cost the same as the traditional ones, and sometimes they cost less.
