Bathroom upgrades are a great way to boost the value of your property. The average price of a complete bathroom remodel is between $9,000 and $12,000, but upgrades don’t have to cost a fortune. Whether you’re planning to sell your home or will be living in it for years to come, here are a few ideas to remodel the bathroom on a budget.

Paint to Remodel the Bathroom on a Budget

Painting is a quick and easy way to update a space. This DIY project is one you can complete over a weekend. For any painting project, purchase quality paint, brushes, masking tape, and rollers. Better supplies mean an easier application and better coverage.

If you know the dimensions of the room, a paint specialist at your local hardware store can help you determine how many gallons you’ll need. For most bathrooms, you can purchase supplies and complete the project yourself for under $100.

Cabinet Hardware

Installing new cabinet hardware will quickly change the look of the bathroom cabinets. Because the bathroom is a smaller space, you can spend more on luxury cabinet handles and drawer pulls without breaking the bank. To complete this upgrade you’ll only need new hardware and a screwdriver. Just make sure you measure the current hardware so that you purchase the correct size for your cabinets.

Install New Fixtures to Remodel the Bathroom

If it’s been a while since you’ve updated the faucets, install a new bathroom sink faucet and a new tap for the bathtub. Whether you choose a modern version or a classic design, you’ll be able to easily install this yourself.

Upgrade the showerhead to a low-flow model to save water without sacrificing pressure. Install a wall-mount or handheld showerhead, or opt for a dual version that has both. Rainfall or waterfall showerheads provide a luxury shower experience, though you’ll have less water pressure with larger diameter heads.

Frame the Mirror

Another easy way to upgrade your bathroom is to add an attractive frame around the mirror. If your bathroom has a standard mirror, give this focal point a boost by installing a frame made from wood molding or tile. Molding is available at any home improvement store and it’s easy to cut to size and stain or paint.

These easy and inexpensive bathroom remodeling ideas will upgrade your space without requiring a lot of time or money.
