Inexpensive Bathroom Remodel Ideas
Having a nice bathroom can increase the resale value of your home. But remodeling your bathroom doesn’t have to strain your wallet unless you’re doing a major overhaul. If so, consult several licensed contractors that specialize in bathroom remodeling to get the best price. If you’re short on cash and would rather do it yourself, here are some simple tips to remember:
An easy and inexpensive way to upgrade the bathroom is to replace the faucet. If you want to do away with traditional chrome faucets, you have a lot of styles and finishes to choose from.
To give your bathroom a new look, change the accessories. Have a theme throughout the entire bathroom. You can easily do this with your towel bars, robe hooks, toilet paper holders, soap dishes, and toothbrush holders for a customized look. Although chrome remains a popular bath accessory finish, there are other choices available including oil-rubbed bronze, wrought iron and wood.
Replace your tiles with a pack of plain white is cheaper and you can decorate it later using tile transfers or tile paint. Or you can leave them alone and introduce color to other areas of the room. If you need to repaint your walls, get some plain white matte paint and mix it with some tester pots of color to get the shade you want. This will save you a lot of money and you’ll also get a unique color.
Repaint old bathroom cabinets instead of replacing them. If they are made of melamine, purchase a special spray to paint over them. For wood cabinets, sand them down and repaint them. Again use plain white and mix in a tester pot to find a color to complement the walls.
