Looking to upgrade your bathroom without breaking the bank? Below are some of the best ways for homeowners to do exactly that because Legacy Bath and Kitchen believes everyone deserves to be able to achieve a designer look – even without a designer budget.
The perfect budget-friendly bathroom remodel requires a little patience, a lot of creativity and also likely a few mistakes along the way. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to spend thousands or be an expert to make a meaningful difference to the rooms in your home. All you really have to do is try. It may seem intimidating at first, but there are actually many quick and simple steps you can take to attain a more stylish potty-space.
1. Know Your Theme
It’s important to determine what kind of look or theme you’re going for from the very beginning and stick with it throughout the process of your bathroom renovation. It’s very exciting to handpick new decorations, and you may want to incorporate many of your favorite things, but it’s easy to get carried away. This can potentially lead to spending more money than necessary. Choose a couple of your favorite items to build your theme around, and stay consistent with any colors or patterns you’ve chosen.
2. Focus on What’s Necessary
As the good saying goes, “Don’t fix what’s not broken.” Focus on what’s absolutely necessary, and work with what you already have when possible. Things like cracked mirrors, crumbling grout, dingy paint, messy caulking, broken tile, and mildew-covered surfaces are some minor fixes that make an enormous difference to the overall look and feel of your bathroom.
3. A Little Paint Goes a Long Way
Chipped and discolored paint can make a space look quite unappealing, and it’s a relatively simple and inexpensive way to revamp a room. Plus, it’s no secret that bathroom germs don’t discriminate what surfaces they’ll accumulate on, and the walls are no exception. It’s a good idea to repaint frequently used bathrooms every 3 to 5 years or so to keep everything looking clean and fresh.
4. Hardware, Faucets and Fixtures
Don’t underestimate the power of replacing something as small as knobs and handles for your cabinets or drawers. Oftentimes, the smallest bathroom upgrades make the biggest impact. Consistent or coordinating coloring in cabinet hardware, light fixtures and faucets will make the whole space look polished and sleek.
5. Peel-n-Stick Options
There are a variety of peel-n-stick options to upgrade the look of your counters, backsplash, vanity or even the floor. These are great, affordable options that have the potential to completely transform a bathroom space of any size. Many of these alternatives to more permanent solutions are even renter-friendly, and they can last years when done correctly.
