I decided on bathroom renovations because I wanted to update my bathroom with a new design and color. I knew beforehand that I will be spending most of my savings on this renovation job and that is why I made an effort to plan and budget so that I will know where the money will go. The budget will set a limit for the kind of items that will go to the renovations. It has also helped me decide on what items I should retain and what I should let go. I will be giving you more tips on how to renovate on a limited budget.
A lot of money can be saved if some of the existing items can be salvaged like the bathtub. However, it is important to ensure that it is still functional. Old cabinets can be refurbished with finishing and a new paint; however, I decided against using my old bathroom cabinet because I was lucky enough to find a style that I have desired for a long time.
When I was in the store, there were so many things that I wanted to buy for the bathroom but I stopped myself from buying because I would go over my budget. The fixtures and fittings I chose were of good quality so that it can be used for a long time.
Instead of redoing the pipes, the old plumbing was retained after the plumber has checked if everything was still okay. Not only did I save money; it made the bathroom renovations a lot easier. I no longer feel guilty after splurging on the storage cabinet. It certainly made the bathroom look organized and clutter-free.
Adding some flowers in a bathroom increases its appeal. There are actually plants that will thrive in the bathrooms low light and high humidity environment. Some plants can thrive on little light and make sure there are some fluorescent light bulbs that will produce the wavelength of lights that plants require to live. As always lighting is very critical in a bathroom. The lights I have chosen added some drama and updated the look of the bathroom.
