If your bathroom is looking old and tired, and your budget is small, you can still transform the way your bathroom looks without investing thousands of dollars in a remodeling project. The key to saving money is to change out the little details and to refinish what you can.

#1 Refinish Your Bathroom or Shower

Getting rid of a bathtub or shower can be one of the more expensive parts of remodeling your bathroom. If your bathtub or shower still works just fine, but you don't like how it looks, refinishing it is a great way to get rid of cosmetic issues, such as a yellowing bathtub and small cracks and nicks.

When you refinish your bathtub, you don't have to remove it, you can refinish it where it stands. Refinishing your bathtub is like putting a new coat on your bathtub. You have to clean your bathtub really well, remove all caulking and fixtures. Then, you have to lightly sand your bathtub and fill in any chips or scratched areas. Next, you have to prime and paint multiple layers. Finally, you have to buff out the tub. This process is a time investment on your part, but it can save you a significant amount of money associated with tearing out, installing and purchasing a new shower area.

#2 Repaint Your Bathroom

Repainting your bathroom can go a long way to changing the overall feel of the inside of your bathroom space. Just remember to put paint around the edges and cover up anything that you don't want to get paint on.

Think carefully about the color that you choose for your bathroom. Remember, a dark color will make your bathroom feel smaller, and a lighter color will open up your bathroom more. In a small room, like your bathroom, it shouldn't take you long to repair the entire area yourself.

#3 Change Out The Fixtures

Finally, change out the fixtures in your bathroom. Put in new faucets and shower heads in your bathing area. Put new faucets in your sink and new hardware on your cabinets. Put in new holders for your towels. Change out the light fixtures in your bathroom as well.

These should not be expensive updates but should really change the way that your bathroom feels. Sometimes, it is really all about the details.

Finally, don't feel like you have to make all of these changes at once. Work on these changes over a few months to spread out your remodeling budget and enjoy the gradual transformation of your bathroom. For more information, contact a business such as Lookout Renovation Company.
