Budget Bathroom Remodel: Ways to Save & Upgrade

Contractor Facing Completed Custom Master Bathroom.

Are you looking to give your bathroom a facelift without breaking the bank? You’re not alone! A bathroom remodel can be a daunting task for many homeowners, especially if you don’t have a large budget. But that doesn’t mean it’s an impossible feat—with a little creativity and planning, upgrading your bathroom without spending a fortune is achievable. Here’s how:

Focus on Smaller Components

A full-blown bathroom remodel where everything is replaced can rack up quite a pricey total. If your larger fixtures are still in good shape, you can reel in your budget by focusing on smaller details. Instead of replacing the entire bathroom vanity, for example, you could just replace the hardware, like the door handles and sink faucet. Even something as simple as swapping out your shower head could transform your experience from adequate to amazing.

Switch Up the Color Swatches

A tried-and-true method of sprucing up a room is painting. You can pick a completely different color for the walls, or you could try your hand at painting (or staining) your bathroom vanity. Continue the theme by buying new towels, bath mats, and a shower curtain that matches your new paint color; these changes can make it feel like a totally different bathroom!

Upgrade the Lighting

If you don’t have a window or good lighting in your bathroom, it’s easy for the space to feel dark and lackluster. Investing in better—and even more—lighting can transform your bathroom right in front of your eyes without making any other updates. And if safety is a concern, you should consider installing a light over your shower for better visibility.

Upcycle Items

Another way to save money on a bathroom remodel is to repurpose items you already have. If you have an old piece of furniture that you no longer use and want to repurpose, try to find a way to incorporate it into the remodel. You can also try to find secondhand items, like a new vanity or shelves, from thrift stores or online marketplaces.

Remodel Just the Wet Area

If the main source of your unhappiness in the bathroom is your bath or shower, a wet area remodel may be the best route to go. Typically, no demolition or repiping is necessary to swap out your old fixture for a new one, so it doesn’t have to be a complete bathroom overhaul. In fact, some companies—like Tundraland—can complete a wet area remodel in as little as one day, so you won’t have to worry about the project costing you your precious time as well.
