Are you looking to renovate your bathroom but worried your budget will limit what you can achieve? Take a look at our top tips and discover how you can still transform your bathroom into the bathroom of your dreams while on a budget.
Limiting Your Tiles
Tiles can often be very expensive if you’re on a budget limit the number of tiles you place inside the bathroom and look at the high-impacted areas such as the floor and around the shower or bath region. Instead of tiling everywhere, look at our Gardiner Haskins Pinterest account and browse our Tile Inspiration board to help give you inspiration for tile design ideas. For instance, you may choose to just tile one line around the perimeter of the bathroom – landscape and paint the rest of the room. Or only tile wet areas (inside the shower/bath area) as this is both stylish and practical.
A brilliant way of saving money when renovating is to repaint to help give your bathroom a new fresh look. It may take a little longer to do as you’ll need to carefully paint around units such as toilet, bath and window. Ensure you have a good supply of masking tape so help protect areas of the bathroom from the paint. Not sure which colour to go for? Pop into our Cirencester store to browse our paint range. We have a diverse collection of different colours and brands so you can be sure you’ll find your desired shade. Brands include Dulux, Crown and Craig and Rose, for more information about our brands, read our blog on our newest arrival – Craig and Rose.
Why not make environmentally friendly purchases while you renovate? Choosing low-flow sinks, showerheads and toilets will help to conserve water and money on energy bills. Using sites such as Etsy are great sources of where you can purchase items such as Mason canning jars which have been upcycled into soap dispensers.
It’s surprising what a difference a new set of towels makes. Consider ditching the mismatch sets which are often accumulated over the years for fluffy new ones. Whether you decide to pick a completely new shade or replace a current colour, having new linen will guarantee to brighten up your bathroom. Check our huge towel range online and in our Cirencester store – our collection of Vossen towels are available in different sizes and colours.
Has the grout between your bathroom tiles got a build-up of dirt and has turned a little grimy? Giving the grout a good deep clean and adding straight, clean lines of caulk around the bath and sink will help to make the bathroom look newer and polished. Such a small and inexpensive technique can make a huge difference.
