Remodeling your bathroom can be a pretty big project to undertake, but it doesn’t need to break the bank. By utilizing a bathroom design for small spaces, you can make the most out of your remodeling project, while still staying on budget.
Here are 5 small bathroom ideas on a budget.
- Give your current space a facelift.
One of the most impactful cheap bathroom makeovers can come from simply putting a new face on your old fixtures with a fresh coat of paint. Don’t think that you are confined to just painting the walls either, breathe new life into your old vanity, bathroom cabinets, and mirrors by giving them a new and inspired color palette swap.
- Faucets and fixtures.
New faucets and cabinet fixtures can make your vanity look brand new, with minimal effort and for under $100. Consider upgrading your old, worn out faucet for an oil-rubbed bronze, or brushed nickel design to add a touch of modern flair to your bathroom remodel. While it can go easily overlooked, don’t forget to replace your cabinet hardware to a corresponding finish to solidify your redesign.
- Minimalist fixtures.
Many successful small bathroom remodeling ideas center around the concept of doing more with less space. Vanity storage often goes unused and can be a big waste of space in a small bathroom. Consider a pedestal sink in place of a large, bulky bathroom vanity. You can pair it with a mirrored medicine cabinet to provide functional storage that is both out of sight and out of the way.
- Utilize vertical space.
One of the most important small bathroom remodeling ideas requires that you make use of space that is otherwise not occupied. In this case, hanging shelving slightly above head level can allow you to easily navigate your bathroom, without compromising free space, or your budget. Floating shelves provide a sleek, seamless look, but often have a low-weight tolerance, but that makes them great for towel storage.
- Illuminate your space.
Shadows and dark spots in your bathroom can make your bathroom feel dark and confined. One easy and cheap solution to this problem is to install LED lighting under your cabinets, behind your mirrors, and anywhere that needs a bit of light shone upon it. If you have a little bit of wiring experience, you’ll find that LED light strips are cheap and easy to install. If the thought of a soldering iron and electrical tape isn’t for you, not to worry, you can find battery powered LED light bars and strips and most all home improvement stores.
