Save Money By Reusing and Resurfacing

Money is always tight when it comes to any home improvement project. An easy way to save money is to simply reuse or resurface the same materials. If the material still works, it is much cheaper to fix it up than to replace it. This should be a guiding principle to any surface-level renovation. Installing a wainscot into your bathroom is an effective way to cover up any small dings or minor holes. However, that is not the solution if there is mold or mildew. In those instances, the entire wallboard needs to be removed and replaced for health reasons. But you will be surprised how much nicer your bathroom will look with only a minor face-lift.

Do Some Tasks Yourself

There are some bathroom remodeling tasks that you can take care of yourself. One way you can help yourself out is to install your own toilet. You can save a couple hundred dollars by installing the toilet yourself and not hiriing a plumber. Installing one is much easier than you think. The hardest part is simply moving the heavy toilets around. 

Another way you can cut costs is to paint the interior of the bathroom yourself. Most bathroom paint jobs should not take more than a day or two to complete. So unless you are having your whole house painted, it is much cheaper to simply paint the bathroom on your own. Painting can be fun and easy.

Shower And Tub Options

Showers and tubs are integral parts to any bathroom, but don't go jumping at the most expensive models and types. For tubs, try relining or refinishing the tub. If your issues with the tub are mainly cosmetic, then a refinishing of it can be just the trick you need. Only install a new tub if you feel it is absolutely necessary. And for showers, installing a pre-fabricated shower unit is typically cheaper than a tiled shower. Building one out of scratch is a very expensive option, so pre-fabricated shower units are typically the way to go.
