Bathroom Remodel on a Budget

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Executive

It is a room that is often overlooked on the decorating list but as the saying goes bathrooms and kitchen sell homes. Many people avoid remodeling a bathroom because they are typically one of the most costly rooms to remodel–generally second only to kitchens.  A bathroom update can be easier than you think. Here are some budget-friendly updates that will give your bathroom a brand new look.

Paint

Paint is the most inexpensive way to transform any room.  For around $25, you can have a brand new look. Bathrooms are typically small rooms so the process should be quick.

If your wood cabinets looking tired,  give them a fresh coat of paint. Make sure to give them good cleaning and a light sanding first.

Lighting

Don't overlook the importance of lighting.  Outdated bath bar (often called Hollywood lighting); can be easily replaced with newer fixtures for as little as $30.

Hardware

An instant update to any cabinet is the hardware. This is a place to where you can be creative and unique.  Expect to pay anywhere from $3 to $15 for each knob or pull.

Accessories

A brand new look can sometimes be as easy as replacing a few of the accessories. Replace worn-out, faded towels with some soft, fluffy new towels.  Expect to pay from $5 to $30 per towel.

Try adding new towel bars and toilet paper holders too. If you update your cabinet hardware you will want to try to go with a similar finish. This will cost about $20 to $40.

Giving your bathroom a fresh, new feel doesn't have to break the bank. With a little elbow grease and some creativity you will have a new bathroom in no time.
