How to Create the Bathroom of Your Dreams on a Budget


We spend a lot of time in the bathroom, and it is a room in the house that is used by every family member. You want it to be a functional and a pretty, relaxing and uplifting. If you have an old bathroom that looks tired and uninspiring, it might be time to get it upgraded. Even if you have a limited budget, you will be able to create a stunning bathroom that you can be proud of and want to spend more time in. Find a few tips below.

Use End of Line Sales

As bathrooms are usually not large, you will be able to take advantage of end of line sales. If there are only around 15-20 floor tiles left over from the specific type, retailers will be happy to let you have them for a discounted price. You will have to calculate how many tiles you need first, taking care of the cuts and the corners, and you can get a better and longer lasting floor for less.

Learn DIY

Even if you are not a trained plumber and you will need to employ a professional bathroom renovation company to complete the fittings and the professional work, you can do some small things like removing your fixtures or taking up the tiles. This is a good way of saving money on your renovations and still getting professional installation. You can paint the ceiling and learn how to tile your walls as well, if you want to save more money.

Add Ambient Lighting

There are several great types of light fixtures and bulbs that will help you relax better in your bathroom. You can even install a light that can alternate between bright white light for when you are doing your makeup or drying your hair and ambient lighting for the nights when you simply want to soak in the bathtub and read a book or listen to music for a couple of hours.

Don’t Cut Corners

Once you get started with your bathroom renovation, you will have to plan the process. If your decision is triggered by a broken faucet or a plumbing issue, chances are that you will need to take care of all the issues at the same time. Just imagine that you are getting a new bathtub or shower fitted, and you have to remove it later when you want new tiles on the walls and the floor. It will cost you much more in time and money.

Employ a Professional Designer

It might also be a good idea to employ a professional designer who can create the bathroom that makes the most out of your space and helps you relax more. There are plenty of bathroom renovation ideas that can improve your life, such as installing a shower radio or heated rails in the bathroom.

The bathroom is one of the most important spaces in your home. Make sure that you focus on functionality and design when you start your renovation project.
