While a bathroom remodel can be a massive undertaking, it is possible to do it on a budget! There are certain considerations to take into account and we cover them all in today’s blog. Follow along!
Bathroom Remodel Budget
The very first thing to consider is how much your budget for the project actually is. This will help you to determine your priorities for the project and where you want to splurge and where you need to save. It might be necessary to take out a personal loan in order to finance the project. It is possible to redo a bathroom on a small budget. This incredible zen-like bathroom remodel was done for $1500!

Bathroom Remodel Schedule
In today’s post-pandemic world there are a lot of supply chain issues and shipping delays. This means it takes longer to do renovations. Therefore, having a realistic timeline for the project is key. You can save time and money by going the DIY route and doing as much as possible by yourself. We love the look of this painted tile floor!

Add a Walk-in Shower
A walk-in shower with glass really makes a bathroom feel luxurious. This is also a great option for a small bathroom remodel that doesn’t have room for a bathtub. Add a ledge at the bottom to waterproof the stall.

Bathroom Remodel – Decisions to be Made
When it comes to your bathroom remodel, there are so many decisions to be made. There are endless options from the floors, to the walls, to the shower, to the mirror, and to the cabinets. In order to maximize your budget, we suggest starting with the elements that mean the most to you. Sometimes you just need to change 1 or 2 things to make a big difference. Light fixtures and hardware can also be swapped out for minimal cost and can have a huge impact.
