If your budget is on the lower end, you have to stick to only cosmetic changes, such as new fixtures or a new sink, and new paint. If you are willing to spend more, then you can focus on making further changes, like adding tile, a bigger shower, or a window. It will depend on your potential budget.

So what are the things that you can do to save money on your bathroom remodeling?

Start Bathroom Remodeling with tiles and painting

Tile is going to be heavy on your pocket, especially when you hire a contractor to fix them on your bathroom walls. The most reasonable solution to this is to limit the amount of tile on walls and rather focus on high-impact areas like the floor. There is a much cheaper and smarter way to lay tiles on your bathroom, by putting the tiles in one horizontal strip along the wall and paint the rest.

Not sure if you plan to have tiles from floor till the ceiling in your bathroom. Usually it’s a good practice to have tiles till 7 feet and beyond that have plastic paints. But since you have to pain the ceiling anyways, but you can do without spending lots of money on painting the walls and use usual white paint instead of the costly paints.

Clean the caulk and grout from the bathroom surfaces

Caulk and grout are often overlooked; it plays a vital role in detracting the overall looks of the bathroom and make it look old and grimy. Due to your negligence it becomes an extremely cumbersome task to clear it on your own, hence you might consider hiring a professional cleaning service (if it is really bad) or you can ask your house maid to help you with this. The looks of your bathroom will completely transformed by simply cleaning the grout and adding straight, clean lines of caulk around the tub and sink. You will be surprised the difference it makes just by clearing the grout and caulk.


Do you have the so called “bad habit” of reading newspaper or browsing internet on your smart phone while pooping? Well don’t feel sorry many people do so (even I do). This is the best possible way to utilize your time, rather than staring at the walls. But the most irritating problem faced by these people is: “where to place their newspaper or mobile?” hence a shelf near your commode is a must. If you have a metal shelving unit in your garage, this will be the best thing for re-purposing it for making a shelf in the bathroom. Paint it with a glossy color that suits your taste and use it for towel and toiletry storage and needless to mention, to place your phone and newspaper.

Updating existing fixtures

Remember to replace your towels, go for a good one, as they add class to your bathroom.
