There comes a point where you begin to notice your bathroom looking a little tired. Or, it could be you just want to make some changes.
There are many ways in which you can add something to your bathroom without spending a lot of money, so let’s have a look at 8 of the best.
An obvious starting point is your paintwork, which may need updating every few years thanks to the steam in the bathroom. Why not choose a new color – something more bold and daring – and give the whole room a new and fresh look? It’s cheap, quick and simple.
Now it can be expensive to tile an entire bathroom, so why not just tile one wall or half a wall? We recommend plain white tiles with – every now and then – one in a deeper color. Many people have achieved a really impressive look this way, and very cheaply too.
One of the most popular cheap mods to a bathroom is to use an old dresser, take out the top, and repurpose it as a sink pedestal. This gives the effect of an old-fashioned washstand and is very impressive if painted or even with the top tiled. Check second-hand stores as dressers are not popular now, and you may find one very cheap.
4. Buy Seconds
Sometimes you can find real bargains in stores when they have stock that is not quite perfect. You might find very beautiful worktops, tiles, trims and even bathroom fittings that have minor blemishes, yet are very heavily discounted. It’s worth checking out your local hardware stores for any such savings. If you need help there’s a popular bathroom remodelling company in Virginia USA who will be more than happy to help.
5. Clean Up
Over the years the grout between the tiles and caulk around the bath fittings will become discolored. This is inevitable, and there’s not a lot that can be done about it. The most effective solution is to clean the grout, it’s a very easy job and you should get good results, and replace the caulk with fresh new lines, and you will see a great different immediately.
6. Window Dressing
Why not change the look of your bathroom by fitting new blinds or curtains at the window? This can be a very cheap and simple way of giving a room a new look, and one that is very easy to do. Blinds are available in a wide variety of styles, colors, and sizes, and make a nice addition to the room.
7. Fixtures and Fittings
One way to give your bathroom a makeover is to change the minor fixtures and fittings, such as towel rails, mirrors and anything that is small and decorative. You will find attractive, cheap and useable fittings in many a hardware store.
8. Scour the Ads
There’s no harm in keeping an eye on the small ads for cheap used or unwanted bathroom suites. Sometimes, people move into a home and immediately change what may be a nearly new set for their own choice, so you could land yourself a bargain this way!
