Quick Tips On Budget Renovations

By Nick Walgen

Budget bathroom renovations are a good option if you want to upgrade your home but don’t have a lot of money to spend. There are many options available to help you make the most of your bathroom experience.

One easy upgrade is to focus on your accessories. By simply changing your shower curtain, your towels or your throw rug, you can give your bathroom a whole new look. You can get accessories that match your walls or add an interesting contrast. If you find towels with interesting appliqus, such as seashells, you can use that as a jumping-off point to creating a seaside theme for your entire bathroom. Just add some seashell-shaped soaps and you’re done.

The rug, the shower curtain and the towels tend to wear out the quickest, but you can also consider changing your waste basket, your soap dishes, your toothbrush holder and your cups. Take a look at the home furnishings department at your local store and see what interesting options are available. You are sure to find something you like.

You may want to try having an interesting array of scented bath salts and candles on a special shelf in your bathroom. Then, if you need an especially relaxing session in the tub or shower, you can create just the right atmosphere.

While you are looking, take a look at paint and wallpaper selections. As long as they are suitable for the humid environment of your bathroom, you can find many options that will give your bathroom a welcome upgrade. Paint and wallpaper are fairly easy changes to make that you can probably finish in one weekend.

You may decide that you need to accomplish more than simply upgrading for appearances. Do you need more storage space for your towels? Try combing garage sales for interesting cabinets or shelving? Do you need something to control that pile of shampoo and soap bottles? There are many interesting ways to store them: including shelves and hooks that easily hang up in the shower.

One very easy way to control storage problems is to not let things pile up in the first place. When a bottle of shampoo is done, throw it out immediately. Keep a hamper on hand to stow wet towels and dirty clothes. Go through that pile of cleaners you stashed under your sink and pitch the ones you never use. Install a robe hook for each member of the family and don’t let them get overloaded.

Another easy but essential upgrade to make is to assure bathroom safety. Keep non-skid mats handy so people won’t fall in the shower. If you have small children or pets, make sure all drawers and cabinets have child-proof locks. The same is true for your toilet.
