Bathroom makeover ideas-on a budget

Updated: Feb 6

 Recently helped an couple with not a small budget and was desperate for an accessible shower tray tray sad opposed to very high bath, we made it work and kept the price down.

1. Update fixtures: Instead of replacing the entire bathroom suite, focus on updating individual fixtures such as faucets, showerheads, or towel racks. These smaller changes can give your bathroom a fresh look without breaking the bank.

 2. Paint and refresh: A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for a bathroom. Choose a light, neutral color to create a clean and spacious feel. Additionally, consider refreshing the grout between tiles or applying a new sealant to make the bathroom look cleaner and more updated.

 3. Consider pre-owned or discounted items: Look for pre-owned or discounted bathroom fixtures, furniture, or accessories. Check out local classified ads, online marketplaces, or salvage yards for potential bargains. Just make sure to inspect items thoroughly before purchasing.

 4. Reface or paint cabinets: Instead of replacing the entire bathroom vanity, consider refacing the cabinet doors or giving them a fresh coat of paint. This can dramatically change the look of your bathroom while keeping costs low.

 5. Shop for budget-friendly materials: Look for affordable alternatives to expensive materials. For example, consider using luxury vinyl flooring instead of natural stone or porcelain tiles. It can mimic the look of more expensive materials while being more budget-friendly.

 6. Opt for a shower curtain instead of a glass enclosure: If you're on a tight budget, consider using a shower curtain instead of installing a glass shower enclosure. Shower curtains are more affordable and can still add style and personality to your bathroom.

 7. DIY tile installation: If you're comfortable with DIY projects, consider installing tiles yourself. This can save you money on labor costs. Just make sure to research proper installation techniques and take your time to ensure a professional-looking result.

 Remember, even on a budget, it's important to prioritize quality and functionality. Focus on making changes that will have the biggest impact and consider consulting with a professional for any plumbing or electrical work.

8. Also bundles of toilets, showers, taps and vanities that can be worth whilr looking at

I can make most things work, if the main issue is accessibility/budget can sort out at budget and do just what's needed using cheapest items,

I take no money upfront to book the job and minimal deposits for materials upfront, instead once started I on agreed occasion's ask for payment for materials already agreed and bought do I can get the rest of the materials, sometimes I can float the job till the end
