San Antonio Bathroom Remodeling Without Big Costs

Upgrading your bathroom is an attractive idea for any homeowner, but it can be easy to put it off for fear of big spending. But a San Antonio bathroom remodel job doesn’t need to drain your bank account. With some patience and the right know-how, you can start transforming your bathroom while keeping to a reasonable price point.

When you’re looking for bathroom remodeling companies in San Antonio, Legacy Bath & Kitchen invites you to our door for the best bathroom renovation services around. We’d like to show you some easy steps for making your bathroom space grand, attractive and — most importantly — affordable!

Bathroom Remodeling And Renovating On A Budget

Home renovation and DIY projects can feel intimidating, but updating your bathroom doesn’t need to overwhelm you. You can get started on this project without the need for huge costs or total makeovers. All you need is time, some knowledge and a can-do attitude. Take your bathroom remodeling step-by-step, and you might be surprised by how quickly you have yourself a stylish new glow-up.

1. Upgrade Some Fixtures

While fixtures aren’t the most important part of your bathroom, when a bunch of fixtures deteriorate, it can ruin the look of an otherwise pristine room. Consider replacing faucets, showerheads, handles and any other fixtures — having a matching finish will make them that much more pleasing to the eye. The easy availability of most fixture models makes this one of the more accessible ways of updating your bathroom.

2. Install New Lighting

Lighting is much more important to the aesthetics of your bathroom than some would have you believe. Old or faulty lighting not only looks bad, but it also makes your bathroom harder to navigate. Something as simple as replacing your lights can make the room more livable and add charm.

3. Replace Your Mirror

A dirty, old or awkwardly placed mirror can make your bathroom seem drab. Consider where in your bathroom a new mirror would look best. A framed mirror could give some nice regality to your bathroom space. Mirrors have the added effect of making the room appear larger, and they come with lots of personality!

4. Bring In Decorations And Wallpaper

No one ever said your bathroom needs to just be white or gray. Bold decorations and wallpaper will make your space stand out. You won’t need a pile of cash to afford most bathroom wallpapers, and even the more simple designs still provide more charm than the cloudy walls most are used to.

There are plenty of affordable decorations to choose from for building a pleasing bathroom theme. Just be sure to not get too carried away with the spending!

5. Update The Vanity

The vanity is a centerpiece of many bathrooms, but this also means replacing one can sometimes be expensive. You can still change up your vanity without getting a complete replacement. Painting the vanity and installing countertops are just two ways you can add new charm to your bathroom.

6. Replace Curtains

Curtains have the potential to stand out the most in any room. Replacing old, impractical curtains to brighten up the bathroom is great, but it’s also an opportunity to add new character to your space. Look for styles that appeal to you and that will fit in with the room’s theming.

7. Change It Up With Paint

If your wall paint has seen better days — or if you’ve just gotten sick of it — it might be time for a paint job. One of the best ways to make your bathroom feel alive is with a fresh new coat of paint. As you decorate and refurnish your space, consider how the coloring will mesh with your wall paint as well. Keep in mind that bathrooms that see a lot of use benefit from being repainted every three to five years.

8. Add Some Storage

The idea of adding storage to your bathroom might not seem appealing at first, but there are plenty of ways to do so without taking up excessive space. Consider places where floating shelves or a medicine cabinet could fit well. If the option is available, recessed cabinets are another choice that helps save on space. With the right positioning and charm, storage spaces can be as pleasing as any decoration while still being practical.
