Renovating your bathroom on a budget

Renovating your bathroom on a budget

Are you looking to renovate your bathroom? Check out these tips for creating a new bathroom look.

The power of paint

Retiling can be a costly process. First, there’s the demolition, then the tiles, then the labour involved. If you’re just after a fresher look, consider having the tiles resprayed with a single colour, such as white ceramic paint. The look is flawless and the cost is much lower!

A new bath

Quality bathtubs can be expensive and on top of the cost of the bath, you also need to pay for the installation. Another very cost effective option is bathtub resurfacing. If you do choose this option, you could also consider getting your basin resurfaced as well.

 Bathroom bling

Taps, handles, showerheads and spouts are the jewellery of your bathroom, so get an instant new look by replacing your old ones with new. The impact of new chrome hardware can instantly transform the overall look of the room, and you don’t need to spend a lot for a little bit of shine.


To complete your new bathroom look, you can add some attractive accessories, like statement coloured towels, a flower, vase or candle arrangement, and a modern mirror. Shop around thrift stores and $2 shops for these accessories and you’ll be amazed by what you can find. Choosing one main colour theme will help create cohesion in the bathroom and will make it easier to spot the bargains in the right colours.

The best way to save money with a bathroom renovation is to tackle it yourself. Do a bit of research and planning and engage the right services, and you’ll have a perfect new oasis – without the hefty price tag.
