Inexpensive Bathroom Upgrades

One of the most popular upgrades that homeowners make in their houses is to upgrade their bathroom. But unfortunately, it is also one of the most expensive upgrades that one can make. However, Rooter-Man is here to save the day with tips about inexpensive bathroom upgrades. Decide a budget and make the most of it using the tips below.


When you start a bathroom upgrade on a budget, you will learn that one of the most expensive parts of the whole project is buying and installing bathroom tiles. The solution is to limit the tile usage and go with paint instead. For example, you can put tiles on the bottom half of the wall and paint the rest of the wall.


Putting in a new counter is on everyone’s bathroom upgrade list. But when you are trying to refurbish a bathroom inexpensively, one can’t just splurge on a fancy counter top. Granite colors, usually darker ones, are less expensive than their lighter colored counterparts, remember that when you go counter top shopping.


Painting a bathroom is the most affordable bathroom upgrade that a homeowner can make. It gives your bathroom a whole new look and doesn’t break you bank. Even the best quality paint will cost you less than a wall full of tiles.


Classic fixtures will typically cost you less than modern fixtures. When shopping for bathroom fixtures keep in mind that most traditional fixtures will do the same job as the more fancy modern fixtures.


When working on an affordable bathroom upgrade, remember this mantra – redo when possible instead of replacing. There are many items in your bathroom that can be refurbished to look better. This will help you save some cash.


If you do buy any new things for the bathroom, go with ones that are green – like low flow toilets, faucets, showers, etc. They can be a bit expensive, but they will help you save a lot of money in the long run.

Use these tips to make sure that you don’t go over your budget when redoing your bathroom. Taking care of some of the tasks yourself can also help you save some money.
