Whether you want more usefulness out of your bathroom, a spa-like feel or tons of custom features, or a completely new look, upgrading your bathroom can be a bit tricky if you have to work around a tight budget. However, through careful planning and budgeting, you will find the best options to ensure your account balance doesn’t feel the pinch. You will be amazed that it is possible to create a stylish and relaxing bathroom space for less than you might think. If you’re willing to think outside the box, you can complete a full bathroom gut-job and renovation between ten to thirty thousand dollars. If you are interested in learning some extremely simple and easy ways to update your bathroom without spending a lot of money, then you have come to the right place. I have written down some useful tips, tricks, and ideas for keeping the costs down throughout your bathroom renovation.

Hire a designer

To get the best look and the most bang for your buck, hire an interior designer to do the layout of your bathroom and help you with fixtures and finishes.

Decide on a budget range

The best thing to do before going into a remodel is to decide what you can afford. A designer can help you with this by pointing out the average cost for some items, and engaging a contractor can also help you finalize the budget with a good idea of construction costs!

Set a reasonable timeline

Make sure you set a timeline with your contractor and designer and, while there may be delays, having that timeline will help keep the project from dragging on and adding additional cost.

Stick to your budget

Make sure to choose items that are cost-effective but beautiful! Know that not everything that looks high style has to cost high style! Also, keep your shower dreams reasonable. A full wall of jets, sprays, and showerheads are luxurious and costs. Consider just a few extras like a rain shower head to make it feel more spa-like but reasonably priced.

Opt-out of custom cabinetry to keep within a reasonable budget

Custom cabinetry is beautiful, functional, and will have great storage, but there are so many beautiful, budget-friendly options for freestanding vanities and storage that can make your new bathroom look customized and stylish!

Don’t forget about the tile

It’s so important as you come close to putting together your bathroom to work with your designer to choose reasonably priced tile to finish your bathroom. You don’t have to have a pre-fab tub and shower unit to save money; choosing great-looking and low-cost tile can give you a designer look on a budget.

So spend less on tile, bathroom fixtures, and (if you can avoid it) relocating plumbing! These will all help save money on your bathroom renovation.

Where to spend your money

Spend your money on glass shower doors and walls to make your bathroom more contemporary, and a tub that makes you excited to take a bath! Everything else from fixtures to finishes can be middle to low cost and that about wraps it up.

Your designer will keep track of all the details so there’s less hassle for you!

Doing a bathroom remodel can be intimidating, so it is important to hire the right kind of help. This will help keep your stress level down as you make important decisions! If you need help upgrading your bathroom while sticking to a budget, email us at
