Bathroom renovations can be as easy or as complicated as you want, and your budget will increase accordingly the bigger and more ambitious your plans are. The good news is that great results can be had without having to spend mega bucks, provide you are willing to put in some work and implement some creative ideas.
Like all renovation jobs, you should first draw up a budget for making over your bathroom. This will help you quickly determine just overweight far you could go with your bathroom renovations. Planning out a budget in advance will also help you decide on the most appropriate materials to use, and to decide which areas to develop accordingly.
You might want to consider “green” or environment-friendly materials and processes as much as possible. These options aren’t only better for the environment and for your family; they can actually save you a lot of money, both immediately and over the long-term. Better still, green options generally tend to work more efficiently, and can be reused over and over again. An added bonus is that refinishing will likely take up less time than tearing things out and replacing the.
A good way to implement a green approach is to repaint existing furnishing and fixtures instead of replacing them outright. Not only will this save you money (and reduce your burden on your community’s landfill), but it will also help you tailor your “new” fixtures to more closely work with your new bathroom design. Some fixtures/furniture that are ideal candidates for repainting and/or refinishing are cabinets, vanities, and even bath tubs and shower areas.
Bathroom renovations are often more about creative implementation rather than a heavy-handed and costly construction approach. Let your creativity run free and think outside the box, and you might just be surprised at how impressive your bathroom can look without a lot of money spent on your part.
