These days, remodeling a bathroom can cost many thousands of dollars. With the economy still rather fragile, some people are simply unable to afford such a luxury. However, that doesn’t mean it can’t be done. Here are six tips for improving a bathroom on a budget.
Remove the old wallpaper by renting a steamer. Then paint the walls with a color that matches your towels.
Go to one of the popular DIY centers and replace your old toilet with a new one. Check the sales papers beforehand for discounts. You’re sure to find a toilet for sale at an affordable price.
After you’ve replaced your toilet, do the same thing with your old vanity. Again, check the sales papers and visit one of the popular DIY centers. There are always lots of vanity options to choose from.
Invest in a good set of towels. These will cost you more than cheap alternatives. However, the cost will be worth it in the long run. So throw out those old ones and consider Egyptian, Supima, Bamboo or other quality types. The best place to find them is online for the largest selection.
This doesn’t mean replacing the bathtub, because to do so would cost big money. Instead, give your bathtub a good cleaning. You’ll be surprised at how much you like your bathtub once you clean it out.
