How to Replace a Bathroom on a Budget

15 November 2023

Tired of your outdated bathroom but not ready to break the bank for a full renovation? A limited budget doesn't have to mean compromising on your dream bathroom. 

Below, we explore how to transform your bathroom on a budget, and walk you through ways to achieve a bathroom that's not only functional and aesthetically pleasing, but also affordable... 

A Fresh Coat of Paint

One of the easiest and most budget-friendly ways to transform your bathroom is by giving it a fresh coat of paint, a new colour can make a world of difference.  

Choose a shade that suits your style and compliments your bathrooms size and lighting.  

Lighter colours can make a small bathroom feel more spacious, while darker tones can add a cosy ambiance. 

Refresh the Sealant

If your bathrooms tiles are in good condition but the grout and sealant have seen better days, a little refresh can do wonders.  

Invest in a grout cleaner and re-seal your bathtub, shower, and sink to give them a cleaner, more polished appearance.

Update Your Fixtures

Swapping out old, worn-out fixtures for newer, modern ones can instantly modernise your bathroom. 

Consider replacing taps, shower heads, towel rails, and cabinet handles, there are so many affordable options available, and you can often install them yourself, saving on labour costs.
