A complete bathroom remodeling project doesn’t fit everyone’s budget. If you are struggling to find a way to upgrade your bathroom without a complete remodel, then these easy upgrades are for you. These upgrades can be completed on a budget and don’t require a lot of time. Some of them can be done on your own, while others are better off left to an expert.
Regardless of the upgrade, they all offer greater comfort and value in your bathroom. Many bathrooms are plagued with outdated appliances, a lack of space, and clutter. These upgrades can assist you in eliminating some of those issues while being easy and affordable.
Install a Toilet
The toilet is the most used appliance in your home. With so much traffic and a little age, your toilet can begin looking unsightly. Installing a toilet on your own is easier than you might think. By following a trusted guide online, you should be able to install a new toilet in just a few hours or within a day.
New toilets are very affordable too! HomeAdvisor reports the average cost of a new toilet is $90 to $1,500. That is a large range with a lot of toilet options. By spending a few hundred dollars, you can get yourself a new toilet that improves your bathroom and its water usage.
Replace the Tile Flooring
Installing new tile flooring for your bathroom is a project you can complete on your own to save on some costs. However, if your bathroom design complicates things, a contractor may be a better route. According to HomeGuide, the average cost to install tile flooring is $10 to $15 per square foot.
The factors that will impact your price are the size of your bathroom and the types of tiles you choose. Ceramic and slate tiles are on the lower end cost-wise and can fit almost any type of bathroom style.
Replace the Faucet
You may be unable to fit a new vanity or sink into your budget, but the faucet certainly will! You’d be surprised at what a new faucet can do for your entire bathroom, let alone your sink. If your current faucet is older or features any kind of blemishes, such as rust or stains, you should consider replacing it.
This is also a great time to consider the style of bathroom you want. The faucet has a lot more impact on the style of your bathroom than you might believe. By choosing the right material, color, and design, you can set your bathroom style in the direction you’ve desired.
Install Storage Space
As we mentioned already, bathrooms are often cramped and cluttered because they lack storage. Install some simple storage in the form of shelves or a medicine cabinet. Hang a towel rod or two to alleviate some space in your existing cabinets. These simple tasks can easily be done in a day and greatly assist your bathroom in decluttering.
Installing a new vanity is also a great way to improve storage space. It may sound like a scary task, but vanities have become standard when it comes to sizes. Measure yours and replace it with a similar size to reduce the amount of work.
