5. Add quality lighting
A single light bulb dangling from the ceiling isn’t going to do your bathroom’s ambience any favors, or its functionality.Bathrooms need a few different types of lighting fixtures For the best results, use a combination of overhead, task and ambient lighting. If you have a tall ceiling, a chandelier or eye-catching pendant light can add elegance to an otherwise dull bathroom. There are lots of stores selling good cheap lighting if you’re on a budget.
6. Go green with your toilet
If your old toilet drives you crazy with its lazy flushing, leaking, cracked bowl or is just decades old, then replace it with a new eco-friendly one with superior style and performance. A low-flow toilet not only helps you save money on your water bill, it doesn’t cost much more than a traditional one. You will need a plumber for this task, but it will only take around one to two hours in labour costs.
7. Add personality with vintage
Often a bathroom has quality fixtures and is a perfectly functional space but lacks personality. By adding unique vintage accents from secondhand stores, garage sales or online etsy finds, you can inject character and interest into your bathroom makeover. Every time you use something old instead of buying new for your bathroom renovation on a budget you reduce your carbon footprint.
8. Refinish your bath
Replacing your bath isn’t going to be the cheapest exercise, unless you scour the salvage yards for an used one in good condition. It’s also a messy job involving on-site demolition of the old one with a sledgehammer. If it’s just stained and chipped, a more affordable option is to get your bath professionally refinished. You don’t have to get white either, consider getting a coloured coating to match your new colour scheme!
There are plenty more bathroom renovation ideas out there but these should get you thinking about how you achieve a bathroom makeover without breaking the bank.
