Bathroom Remodeling Ideas on a Budget

Bathroom remodeling, even on a budget, can add value to your home. If you can stick to a budget you are making a valuable investment in your home. Here are some tips to help you on your way.

Many people often overlook the ceiling when remodeling a bathroom. Having a unique ornate bathroom ceiling is very effective and is quite cheap to do, often under one hundred dollars. Take some textured wallpaper and paste it onto the ceiling. After it has dried, paint with a water resistant paint. It is inexpensive but looks very unique.

You often find that hotel bathrooms are luxurious. The showers often seem large and very spacious. A great way to get the same effect and feel is to install a curved shower rod. A double curved rod is very handy as it will allow you to fit a high quality liner with your shower curtain.

Most bathrooms have tired, old looking vanity lighting. A budget tip is to remove the old lighting and replace with new, more modern looking vanity light fixtures. They can be found at many home improvement stores such as Lowe’s and Home Depot. Although shopping for these online is tempting I would suggest going to buy these actually in person to get the best quality looking models.

Using paint in the bathroom is a quick and inexpensive way to make an improvement and getting your room looking up to scratch. Pick a neutral color that is bold and make sure the paint is water resistant. It is also possible to buy paint that is mold and fungus resistant. Getting a shower curtain or bath mat to match or complement will add that extra touch of class.

The bathroom vanities are a vital part of the bathroom design. If you vanity tops are outdated the whole bathroom will look old and out of date also. The top can be tiled, for example with granite tiles, to create a fresh modern look. Alternatively if there is a granite dealer near you you could have a top specifically cut, which can often obtain at a discount. Due to the small size, often leftovers from kitchen worktops can be used. This, as well as a fresh coat of paint will create a stunning look.

Budget bathroom remodeling can be a difficult process. However, with these tips, which can help you save money you can achieve a stunning result for little money.
