Bathroom Ideas On budget

Keen to learn about some really awesome budget bathroom ideas?

Bathroom remodeling can be great fun – knocking out walls, getting rid of old bathtubs, and vanities, and installing new fixtures. As fun as this sounds, perhaps all you want are a few touch-ups, and not a complete bathroom overhaul because of budget constraints. Not to worry, we’ve got six amazing budget bathroom ideas that are guaranteed to bring that wow factor to your bathroom.

Combine the vanity and toilet

Combining the vanity with the toilet is one of the most cost-effective things you could probably do for your bathroom. Not only is it budget-friendly in that you’re buying a combined unit instead of two separate fixtures, but it also saves you money in that you only have one fixture to install.

Create the illusion of a bigger space with lighting

Instead of knocking out walls to create bigger windows, you can use lighting placed in strategic places in your bathroom to give the illusion of a larger space. The more lighting you have in your bathroom, the bigger the room will appear. Furthermore, you don’t have to spend a fortune, because right in the comfort of your home, you can browse thousands of lighting fixtures from different websites and compare prices until you get the right fixtures that fit right into your budget.

Install a shower and remove the tub

bathroom ideas on budgetFrameless showers are the rage these days, and we can understand why. They look chic and posh, adding instant sophistication to any bathroom. If you have an old bathtub, instead of getting it repainted, or getting a new tub installed altogether, just opt for a shower instead. You’ll probably use less water potentially, thereby also reducing your energy bill. Trust us on this one, you’ll thank us later.

Paint is your best friend

Tiling walls are a popular budget-friendly bathroom idea, but we prefer painting. There is something beautiful about well-coordinated colors such as greys and earth-browns with highlights of gold in a bathroom. Painting your walls instead of tiling them will potentially save you hundreds of dollars or even thousands, depending on the size of your bathroom.

Consider installing open shelves instead of cabinets

If you’ve got a knack for DIY projects, this might be something you might want to try. Open shelves aren’t difficult to build, and by browsing thousands of images on sites such as Pinterest, you can come up with unique ways to incorporate them into your own bathroom. Another advantage of open shelves over cabinets is that open shelves take up potentially less space than cabinets.

Accessories with mirrors

Mirrors in a bathroom combined with great light fixtures will instantly boost the appeal of the room. You can find inexpensive pre-owned mirrors from online stores like Etsy and e-Bay. Mirrors can be placed around the bathroom in strategic locations – above the sink or on the wall nearest the bathtub. Get creative!
