Remodeling a bathroom can come with a hefty price tag. However, making updates doesn’t always have to break the bank. With a solid budget and a few clever ideas, remodeling your bathroom on a budget is not out of the question. At Ascension General Contractors, we’re here to help you learn how to remodel your bathroom, all while staying within your designated budget for the project.
How to Create a Budget for Remodeling Your Bathroom
As with any remodeling project, the first step is to create a budget for the updates you are going to make. From there, you can gain a better understanding of the process and how to make the project work for you and outline your cost estimates. Don’t rush this process as easy as it may be. A thorough budget will help you avoid a lot of headaches in the long run.
- Write out all of the ideas you have and features you would like to include
- Find a reputable contractor and gather an estimate for the project
- Remove any non-priority items that exceed your budget
- Leave room for unexpected expenses
Remodeling Ideas on a Budget
You don’t need to spend an excessive amount to transform and update your bathroom. There are so many ways you can redesign your bathroom on a budget. But with so many ideas out there, it can be hard to determine what exactly should be a high priority in your budget. Here are some of our favorites:
- Paint Walls & Cabinets
Over the years, the paint of your walls and cabinets can quickly fade and chip. Adding a new, bright coat of paint can enhance the whole room, especially if the room is dated and dark due to the previous color.
- Replace Your Hardware & Fixtures
Poor lighting or faulty hardware can be inconvenient with a high-traffic room in your home and cost you in the long run. New light fixtures and hardware can be an inexpensive way to make life a bit easier.
- Replace the Flooring
Scratched or damaged flooring from water or other elements is an excellent opportunity to make a small but significant improvement in your bathroom. If you choose the right materials, repair or replace the flooring can be done at a reasonable price.
