Bathroom Renovations on a Budget

Besides a kitchen overhaul, updating a bathroom can be one of the more expensive home improvement projects out there. However, thankfully it doesn’t always have to be that way! There are much more affordable options to explore and yet still give your bathroom a whole new look.

We scoured the Internet for some do-able ideas to refresh a bathroom, all for less than $1,000. Whether you’re hoping to list your home soon or would merely like to update the next place once you’ve moved in, here are the key areas we found that can help make the magic happen, especially if you’ve caught the DIY bathroom bug:

  1. Update Vanity
  2. Update Countertop
  3. Update Walls
  4. Update Light Fixture
  5. Replace Hardware
  6. Replace Mirror
  7. Replace Faucets
  8. Replace Flooring

Vanity, Countertop, & Walls

Paint alone can help you make the transformations happen — from cabinet paint for the vanity, to epoxy paint on the counters, to a fun fresh color on the walls in place of outdated tile or wallpaper. 

Let There Be Light

In our search for new and inexpensive bathroom ideas, we found one example where someone took a black light fixture, removed all of the light bulb covers, and painted the metal into a matted bronze. Gorgeous! Affordable options are also available from home improvement stores, lighting web sites, or via an up-cycle at a neighborhood garage sale.

Replace Hardware

Drawers and drawer pulls don’t have to be expensive to be fabulous. Make sure they’re in a style and color you like that complements the overall look and feel of the room.

Replace Mirror and Faucets

Ah, this is one area where it could be tempting to go overboard on the budget — with built-in smart-technology and home voice assistants such as Alexa or Google Home, or a new touchless system. To stay under budget, keep it basic and simple, and go for a clean new-to-you look and feel for your vision. Maybe save the extra tech products for one single splurge, or let that wait until the next big project.

Replace Flooring

Sometimes, this is as simple as getting a new bath mat or a small area rug. Other times, it’s a good idea to start replacing tile floors, where a whole new look can be as close as one weekend project away.
