3 Bathroom renovations ideas when you’re on a super-tight budget

Bathroom-renovationWe have all been on a budget at one point in time or another or maybe you are still on a budget when it comes to remodeling your home. Let’s face it home remodels can be quite costly and even though they will most times add value to your home financing the project up front can be tough. This is why we have put together this list of three bathroom renovation ideas for when you are on a super tight budget.


Fresh Face

nothing can change the look of a room like a new coat of paint. Painting is a quick and cheap way to change the look of your bathroom. When you are painting you can add different things like a backsplash or a border both of which can be pretty inexpensive if you know where to shop and how to reuse things. You can paint almost any surface for don’t be afraid to give your medicine cabinet, towel racks and even the window frames a fresh new look with a coat of paint too.


Repurpose, Reuse, Recycle

head out to the local Victoria yard sales one weekend and see what you can find to use in your bathroom remodel. Things might need a new coat of paint or a good cleaning but you can’t beat spending pennies over dollars, right?! You can find new fixtures both for the faucets as well as lighting if you run into a good yard sale. The phrase one person’s junk is another man’s treasure couldn’t be truer than when talking about yard sales. You might also try local Australian second hand stores for treasures too.


New caulk & grout

you may take one look at your shower or tile and see an ugly mess of blacks, orange, and browns all because your grout and/or caulking needs replaced. Give your bathroom a much needed face lift by scraping the old caulk and grout away and applying fresh, clean lines to give your bathroom a noticeable new look that won’t break the bank.
