Whether you are making renovations to help sell your home, or you are doing them for your own satisfaction, upgrading your bathroom can make a very big difference in the overall ambiance of your living space. Best of all, you can make some very notable upgrades without breaking the bank.

One of the first things many homeowners do when they start planning their bathroom renovation project is to make the assumption they are gutting everything and starting with an empty canvas. But, instead of taking this approach, you can save yourself a lot of time, money, and stress by focusing on small details instead.
For example, instead of replacing your entire bathroom sink, clean it up as best as possible and replace the hardware. This will give the appearance of a like new sink for pennies on the dollar.
You can also replace towel racks, light fixtures, and the hardware on bathroom medicine cabinets.
Repurpose and Recycle

A fantastic way to save some money on your renovation is to make a conscious effort to turn someone else’s trash into your treasure. You don’t need to have all new everything in your bathroom to make it look fresh and professionally designed. You just need a little careful planning and some hard work.
One way to you can really save a lot of money is to skip buying a brand new and expensive sink pedestal, which might also require installation. Instead turn an old dresser you picked up at a garage sale or online second-hand marketplace into your new under sink storage.
Some new wood stain and elbow grease can easily make a $50 investment look like a $500 dollar one.

Absolutely nothing beats creativity when it comes to saving money during a renovation, whether it’s for a bathroom or any other part of your home. Making the effort to spend more time browsing websites like Etsy for cool design ideas instead of filling up a shopping cart at Home Depot can quite literally save you thousands of dollars on your bathroom project.
But, aside from saving tons of money, it can give your bathroom a much more unique and custom feel. That is priceless.
From light fixtures to bathroom mirror frames to window treatments, there’s no shortage of areas where you can let your artistic side shine. And, if you aren’t the most creative person in the world, there’s no shortage of design ideas on sites like Pinterest.
While upgrading your bathroom on a budget will take you a little more planning than just heading over to a home improvement store and buying a bunch of new furnishings, both the savings and the overall end result are more than worth it.
You will have more money in your bank account and you will have a unique bathroom that will be the envy of your friends and neighbors.
