Budget-Friendly Upgrades for your Bathroom Remodel
You don't have to spend a lot to make a big difference in the bathroom. Here's a list of things you can do that are budget-friendly.
Homeowners often forget to upgrade the paint in the bathroom, it's a good idea to give your bathroom a fresh coat every couple of years. Pick colors to relax or energize. Coral is the new color of the year and makes an excellent bathroom color!
✔ Upgrade the accessories
New towels, bamboo bath mats, a new shower curtain can transform a bathroom.
✔ New hardware
Switch out doorknobs, drawer/cabinet pulls for more modern looking hardware.
✔ Change out the shower-head
This is a very simple and low-cost upgrade that can make a shower turn into a spa-like experience. There are lots of shower-heads to choose from - from rain shower-heads to multiple-massage-function shower-heads.
✔ Have the tile/grout rec-aulked - it'll give the shower/bath area a whole new look and prevent the spread of mildew and mold in the bathroom.
Mid-Range Bathroom Remodel Ideas
Looking to do a little more to upgrade for your bathroom remodel?
✔ Have a new sink installed. We suggest motion-sensor sinks for bathrooms.
Change the lighting - go with these three simple guidelines:
- Add lights to either side of the mirror/vanity
- Your bathroom lighting should look like daylight
- Use dimmers to create the right lighting, that way you can have bright lighting when you are getting ready in the morning and soft lighting if you are taking a bath in the evening.
✔ Replace the vanity - taking out old wood vanities or countertops that have seen better days is a great way to upgrade a bathroom! Replace with granite, tile or marble countertops.
Spa Bathroom Renovations
✔ Towel Warmer
This is the trending add-on for 2019. A towel warmer is typically a large drawer added to vanity or cabinet. This will make any bathroom feel like you've stepped into a 4-star spa.
Tile floors and painted walls are nice, but tile that goes all the way up to the ceiling can create a dramatic ambiance of a spa.
If you have space, there are many possibilities with showers. From in-shower heated floors, rain shower-heads, multi-directional shower heads, heated benches, you name it, and it can (probably) be done.
A giant soaking tub with an area to put down a glass of wine might just be the best gift you can give the person who could just use 20 minutes to relax at the end of a hard day.
How much is a total bathroom remodel?
The materials for the average bathroom remodel will cost between $8,000 and $10,000. This includes new fixtures such as a brand new toilet, new sink, and a new bathtub and shower. It also includes the cost of new tiling, new cabinets, and luxury countertops.
