Renovating A Small Bathroom On A Budget

Updating a small bathroom doesn’t have to break the bank! With less square footage to deal with you can keep costs low while still creating the bathroom of your dreams. Here are some inexpensive bathroom remodeling ideas to help you get started.

Choose Wisely

When working with a tight budget, it’s okay to splurge on one or two key items as long as you find ways to save elsewhere. First, decide what is most important to you. Maybe it’s a glass shower door to make the room appear more spacious, or a beautiful new bathroom vanity? Since the vanity will be the focal point that anchors the room you can go that route and opt for a lovely, colorful shower curtain in place of glass doors. But if glass doors are non-negotiable painting cabinets is always an option when there are budget constraints. It also pays to shop wisely. The RTA Store offers both ready to assemble and pre-assembled bathroom vanities for every budget with prices starting below $200 — So you may just be able to afford everything your heart desires! 

Signature Vanilla Glaze Bathroom — The RTA StoreThink Outside The Box

A small space can shine when you think outside the box. Tile floors are fantastic in a bathroom but don’t stop there! Bring tiles up with a beautiful and affordable wall treatment or backsplash in the bathroom — whether it’s a half wall all the way around the room, one large statement wall, or a surround for a shower or tub. Not just for floors, tiles can add that wow factor when used in unique and unexpected ways. Paint is another inexpensive home update. Choose colors to compliment your home, in a washable finish that is mildew and moisture resistant. Blues and greens are popular bathroom hues which lend a soothing spa vibe when paired with crisp white trim, tubs, and toilets.

It’s The Little Things

Sometimes the smallest details make the biggest impact. Lighting has the ability to change the entire look of a space, and updating your lighting fixtures is an easy way to transform a small bathroom from dated to delightful. A new sink and faucet can also make a huge difference. The same goes for knobs or pulls, and bath hardware. And don’t forget to accessorize! Canisters for cotton balls and swabs, pretty hand towels, decorative baskets, mirrors, wall art, and a nice area rug complete the space and tie everything together.
