7 ways to give your bathroom a budget facelift

by ShelMarkblog In Uncategorized

05 September 2018

Anyone who has looked into the costs of renovating a bathroom would know how expensive it is.

Known to be one of the most costly rooms in the house to renovate (second only to the kitchen), a bathroom renovation sets us back to the tune of $17,000 on average.

But there are ways to seriously spruce up your bathroom for a fraction of the cost.

Here are 7 tips to give your bathroom a facelift on a shoestring budget:

1. Replace fixtures and fittings (tap, shower and bath fittings).

2. Hang a mirror – an interior designer’s favourite trick because they create the illusion of space while serving as a decorative feature. Overhead mirrors are on trend right now, especially circular and curved mirrors with minimalistic frames.

3. Update knobs and handles on cabinets
– just be sure to keep them in the same place as the original ones.

4. Styling
– examples include a new toilet roll holder, good quality towels, a tray to hold skincare products and perfumes, a reed diffuser and some luxurious soap etc.

5. Add a tile feature
– a patterned or bold-coloured tile could be just the thing to revive a tired bathroom. The key word is ‘feature’. There’s no need to retile every surface – think a wall or shower niche.

6. De-clutter
– this is the single most budget-friendly way to freshen up your bathroom. Decorative storage items like a stylish wicker basket, store bought simple-to-hang overhead cabinets, a stacked towel rail or ladder etc. will help to retain both order and create style in your bathroom.

7. Re-grout your tiles
– this is a far cheaper way to freshen and revitalise the look of a bathroom than replacing the tiles. You will be amazed at how much more modern your tiling looks when the grout is fresh and clean.
