Tips For Updating Your Bathroom On A Tight Budget

If you are on a tight budget and want to renovate your bathroom, you can still do it. A bathroom can be renovated gradually, and you do not have to spend a destiny to turn an old bathroom into a good-looking and relaxing room.

Get inspired

The first step is to get some inspiration. Looking at a few bathroom sites they will give you some great ideas. Bookmark pages that are of interest and print off pictures of those bathrooms that particularly catch your eye. Put this and any tile or colour samples into a book, folder or box file. When you have gathered enough inspiration, sit down, and go through the book to decide what you are actually going to do.

Shop around

Once you know what you want shop around to find what you need at the best price. Specialist firms regularly sell off end of line suites at huge discounts. They also have sales on a regular basis.

Spread your purchases

If you are on a tight budget spread your purchases out. However, if you are installing a new suite you really need to buy that all at once. If you do not do this, you run the risk of the suite going out of stock before you have had time to buy all of the pieces. The last thing you need is a suite that does not match.

Do some of the work yourself

If you can do the work yourself do so. One of the biggest costs of a new bathroom is labour. If you can do the tiling yourself do it. However, if you have never done it before get someone who has tiling experience to teach you how to do it.
