Bathroom Remodeling Tips

Are you ready to refurbish your bathroom? But, releasing $20,000 on a deluxe spa is far away from what you can afford to spend. Isn’t it? Don’t worry! You need not to spend mega-bucks to transform your bathroom into a calming, cool space. Plenty of ways are there to renovate a space on a budget.

Whether you’ve a small bathroom or a giant spa center, a boresome interior will neither refresh you nor will appeal your customers. Bathroom with a design that addresses all your needs - physical and spiritual is said to be effective. 

We all have an idea of what our ideal bathroom would look like, but before you start on any bathroom remodel, it’s good to keep a few things in mind.

Here are a few interesting bathroom tips and ideas that’ll help you give a new look to your bathroom, and that too under budget. Have a look:

1. Floor tiles - People often look for bathroom tiles that are easy to maintain. As such, Porcelain or glazed tiles would probably suit your taste. Also, you need to lay tiles that offer less ability to slip with wet feet. For this, look for tiles with textured surfaces that contain sand.

2. Improve your bathroom’s lighting – A place with bright and beautiful light fixtures gives it an indistinct look. Create and install a better lighting plan for your bath. Add recessed lights, vanity lights and the ability to turn off certain lights or to dim them to create a soothing atmosphere. You may also use ceiling-mounted fixtures or add style and mood with pendant lights for a modish look. 

3. Make your toilet and shower more water-efficient – In addition to remodel your bathroom, you should opt for things that saves you resources, both natural and artificial.  To remodel your bathroom, you can install new fixtures like low-flow toilets and shower heads. This not only will give your bathroom a great look, but can also go a long way towards conserving water.

4. Use paint instead of wallpaper – Installing wallpapers instead of paint isn’t a great idea as the humidity of the bathroom can be tough on wallpaper, which can cause it to peel and bubble. It is better to go for a durable paint of your choice. 

5. Redo, Don’t Buy New - Do not replace your old tub or shower as it is going to cost you a pretty penny. Rather, if you’d get them professionally relined, it’d cost you cheaper. On the other hand, refinishing sink and shower fixtures is more expensive. 

6. Freshen Caulk and Grout - Last but not the least! A grimy grout and calk in the bathroom looks ugly. Instead of getting them completely new, simply clean the grout and add straight, clean lines of caulk around the tub and sink. This can bring a great difference in your bathroom! Both the grout and caulk are low-cost, so this is an inexpensive way to freshen up your bathroom.

Bonus Tip:

Hang a stylish mirror - To add up a bit more glare to your bathroom, add a beautifully framed mirror over a sink, it’ll appear more attractive than many surfaces covered with mirror. Enhance its look with a wall-mounted adjustable makeup mirror with pleasant bright lighting.
