Bathroom Renovation for Every Budget

When it comes to renovating property investments, people usually look at remodeling the kitchen or changing the living room's interior. However, bathrooms are worth fixing too. Depending on the condition of the bathroom and how exhaustive the renovation needs to be, fixing it up could cost as little as a few hundred dollars.

In this article, we will share several tips with you on how to renovate bathrooms, whether you are on a budget or a looking for a complete overhaul.


Before you renovate, check the condition of the room. If the tiles are still clean, complete and don't look dated, keep them. Otherwise, choose tiles that combine looks with quality. It doesn't have to be made of marble or other expensive materials. Find tiles that look elegant without burning a hole in your pocket. In addition, look for a look that won't go out of style in just a matter of years.

The Toilet

Quality should be the first thing you should look for when it comes to the toilet. Again, you don't have to spend a lot of money here. Look for one that gives you the best value for your money, in terms of looks and durability.

Plumbing and Fixtures

The same goes with the plumbing. You would save a lot of money keeping these intact. Rather, change the fixtures as these would have a greater impact on how the bathroom looks for not a lot of money. Go for a timeless look here, as with the tiles.


Mirrors also play a big role in bathrooms. If you have the budget, try installing light fixtures around the vanity mirror too. This would give a flattering image of the person in front of it. Now if your bathroom is a little too small, you could create the illusion of space by installing mirrors on its walls.

Before you even go ahead with the renovation, it helps to get separate quotes from different contractors. This gives you the chance to choose which one provides you with the best value for your money. Otherwise, you might miss out on a great deal that another contractor could have given you.
