Budgeting Tips for Your Bathroom Renovations

Changing up the look of your bathroom doesn’t have to mean a hefty price tag.  It’s time to put your budget saving skills to the test. Here are five things that can be done for less:

1. Use wire baskets instead of pricey cabinet units

If you need extra storage and are limited on space and funds, sleek wire organisers are a great solution. These racks are also easier to replace and install. In comparison to a standard, basic wooden cabinet, a wire-made organiser will also be a fraction of the cost.

2. Balance your use of tiles, timber and paint

Tiles are expensive to buy and place in your bathroom, so it can be cost effective to use them sparingly. Be selective and only use tiles where necessary, going for paint and timber in other spaces.

3. Use energy efficient pieces

Thankfully, the average homeowner already has access to less expensive and energy efficient products. There are LED light bulbs, as well as water saving faucets, toilet bowls and showers you can install in your bathroom.

Did you know you can save over $3,300 with 15 years’ use of LED light bulbs? In the long run, LEDs are certainly a more affordable option in lighting up your bathroom. There are also toilet bowls that specifically flush at 4.5L. You’ll save thousands of dollars within several years of using energy efficient toilets like this.

4. Commission a furniture maker

Instead of purchasing expensive furniture from specialty shops, compile your preferred design styles and speak with a designer. You’ll have a one a one of a kind item that is functional and attractive. Sometimes this can seem like the more expensive option, but if you do your research and use the service for feature pieces, it can be a great budget friendly option.

5. Stock up on organic DIY and off-the-rack accessories

Adding a touch of nature in the bathroom can make the space relaxing and inviting, without costing a lot of money. Some things you can add include:

  • Incense and candles
  • Homemade potpourri
  • Indoor plants
  • Waterproof wooden organisers

Budget-challenged homeowners don’t need to spend thousands of dollars on indoor fountains or other expensive furniture in their bathrooms. DIY it and reap the rewards.
