Remodeling your bathroom on a budget can be a challenging task, but it does not mean that it is impossible to achieve. In fact, you do not need to shell out a large sum of money to transform your bathroom into a relaxing, cool space. Often times, all you need are simple hacks and tips to renovate and redesign on a budget.
According to a report from Remodeling Magazine, an average remodeling project costs around $10,500 while a full-scale remodel can go as high as $26,000. However, if you do the legwork yourself and just let your creative juice go wild, you can remodel your bathroom for as low as $1,000 to $3,000 – depending on the changes you want to make on the space.
One of the tips many professional bathroom contractors often advice is to cut on tiles. Tiles are getting more expensive these days, and the cost can go higher when you hire a contractor to lay it all out for you. To save money, only use tiles on high-impact areas like the floor. If you like, you can also lay one horizontal tile strip along your bathroom walls, and then you can just paint the rest. In doing so, you are able to make the space a little bit more classy without wasting money on areas which do not have to be tiled on.
