4 tips for a beautiful bathroom on a budget

Don’t let the very thought of the potential costs of a bathroom renovation put you off. In reality, renovating your bathrooms doesn’t have to be exorbitantly expensive at all.

With proper planning, knowing what you want and need out of your bathroom renovations and trusting in the right company to make your visions a reality, you really can’t go wrong.

A fresh coat of paint will go far

Instead of floor to roof bathroom tiles, have you considered paint? A fresh coat of paint goes far in every room of the house, including the bathroom.

Here are some great bathroom painting tips to consider:

  • Tile halfway up the wall and then paint to (and including) the ceiling.
  • Get your existing tiles professionally painted for a refreshed look and style.
  • Remember to only use mould-resistant paint due to the humidity of bathrooms and paint specifically made to paint over porcelain or ceramic tiles (if required).

Whether you DIY or leave to a bathroom renovations company, you can easily enhance your bathroom and streamline style with new, mould-resistant and bathroom suitable paint.

Think about your tiles

A luxe-looking bathroom is still achievable on a budget. You just need to be smart with how you go about it, and that includes tile placement.

Here are some smart considerations to think about when it comes to tiles:

  • Using designer tiles on the floor and more affordable tiles on the walls.
  • Utilising handcrafted tiles as accents and mixing them with plain, cheaper tiles.

Another thing to think about with tiles is how they will look and fare with upcoming bathroom design trends. What’s on-trend now, may not be so in 10+ years, if/when you decide to sell your property.

Why replace when you can refresh?

If you have existing porcelain, cast iron or fibreglass fittings and fixtures, you don’t need to replace them fully. Instead, why not give them a little TLC and a refresh?

Talk to your bathroom renovations company about your desires to keep any existing fittings and features and ask for them to be resurfaced.

Another refresher involves regrouting your bathroom tiles and caulk replacement between the shower and flooring. It’s relatively easy to DIY or get a professional to do so on your behalf.

Light it up with new lighting

Don’t forget the lighting! Uplift the atmosphere in your bathroom with new lighting.

Say goodbye to the drab default lighting your bathroom came with and opt for beautiful, energy-efficient lighting to optimise the functionality and aesthetics of your new bathroom.
