You don’t have to be embarrassed to admit that you spend a significant amount of time in the bathroom. We’ve all spent a few extra minutes (or hours) sitting on the toilet scrolling Tik Tok.

While you’re sitting there, do you ever look around and think that maybe this room could use a little spruce up? You’re in there so often doing important things and you deserve to have it be comfortable, functional, and appealing.

If that urge strikes again, we’ve got 10 bathroom remodeling ideas you can do on a budget.

Why Remodel the Bathroom?

There are plenty of ideas and reasons to remodel your bathroom. You can add, expand, improve accessibility, correct and prevent damage, improve utility, fix plumbing issues, improve environmental and energy efficiency, make cosmetic changes, and more.

You can also just renovate because you want a fresh look and feel.

Increase the Value of Your Home

The most obvious, and perhaps most common, reason why people decide to upgrade their bathrooms is to improve the value of their home.

Zillow estimates that a mid-range remodel can get you a return on investment of $1.71 on your dollar.

Everyone is always looking for move-in ready homes, and when the bathroom looks good, that improves it’s apparent value for any homebuyer.

Lower Your Utility Costs

You can add devices that save water and electricity. This can add value as well as help the environment.

New devices like water-saving showerheads and toilets have the added benefit of a modern and sleek look, which will improve the overall aesthetic of your bathroom.

According to the EPA, water-saving toilets can reduce water usage by 20%-60%, saving over 13,000 gallons of water per year in every home.

Improve the Usability and Functionality of Your Bathroom

We know the struggle of not having enough storage space for your bulk amounts of toilet paper, or needing another cabinet to keep extra towels and toiletries.

When you upgrade your storage options, you’ll finally be able to have the space you need and keep everything within a contained space, rather than keeping your extra shampoo and toilet paper in the closet in the hall.

Top 10 Bathroom Remodeling Ideas

The average cost of a bathroom renovation can be anywhere from $50-$20,000 depending on the scope of your project.

Read on to get our top 10 bathroom remodel ideas fit for a tight budget.

1. Replace Flooring and Tiles

Replacing the flooring is one of the cheaper options for a fresh new look. It can also make a huge impact on the value of your home. Replacing the flooring in your bathroom can give you one of the largest returns on investment.

You can add color or design to the room. Get rid of the old, broken tiles or wood and update it with something smooth and sleek. Go all white for a country look or a marble black for a luxury look. The possibilities are endless and are up to you and your expert eye for interior design.

2. Redo the Shower

This endeavor could take a little bit more commitment and money, but it can make a huge impact on the look of your bathroom.

Replacing the grout or changing the color can add a pop of freshness to your look.

You can also replace your showerhead with one that can save water. The EPA says that a water-saving showerhead can save a family 2,700 gallons per year and can also help reduce the amount of electricity needed to heat the water.

3. Freshen Up the Walls

You might not see it at first glance, but your walls are a little dirty. Trust us. It’s time for some new wallpaper or a fresh coat of paint.

This is one of the cheaper options, since a gallon of paint costs around $30. This is also one of the best ways to update the look of your bathroom. You can transform that boring eggshell color into a light green that soaks up the sun. A deep blue can add a sense of luxury to the space. Or you can add an accent wall to give the room and whimsical vibe.

4. Add Mirrors

If you’re done with that ugly, clunky medicine cabinet, replace it with a regular mirror (and move that storage elsewhere, we’ll get to that in a minute).

Think about it – you look into that mirror above your sink every single day of your life. Changing your mirror can help you feel brighter and happier.

And if you’re worried about feeling vain, don’t. Science backs up the fact that looking at yourself in the mirror helps with self-compassion and self-reflection.

5. Change Up Your Bathtub

Fair warning, this can be one of the more challenging endeavors to DIY. Bathtubs are big and heavy and can feel more like a burden than a benefit.

However, imagine replacing your bulky, square, rounded-edged, unevenly painted tub with something new and sleek. I bet your heart just did a little flutter there, right? Me too.

6. Replace Your Toilet and Sink

When you’re redoing your appliances inside the bathroom, you have full control over functionality and aesthetic. If you’re looking to upgrade into the modern world with a sleek look or trying to keep it simple and functional, you can find a sink and toilet that fit your look and helps utilize natural resources more efficiently.

7. Let there be Light

Has your overhead bathroom light been flickering and you resent the fact that you have to change the bulb because you hate the fixture? Replace it!

Get rid of your fluorescent, unflattering lighting and replace it with something that shines with brilliance and beauty. Add some sconces on the wall for ambience, add a statement chandelier, or add some dressing room lights around your mirror.

8. Replace Knobs and Hardware

One of the cheaper options to update your look. You can go full out and give your cabinets a repaint or simply replace the cabinet handles with something less dated and more modern.

9. Upgrade your Storage

With more countertop area, you won’t have to worry about knocking things into the toilet anymore.

You can start small, like adding baskets for storage instead of bulky plastic bins. This way, storage can add to the look of the room while also being functional.

10. Add Decoration

You might not even have to spend any money for this one. You can simple rearrange, repurpose from other things in your home, or even have a fun painting or collage-making evening to add to the overall look. Swap out accessories and dress up your windows with hanging lights, plants, mason jars, books, and more.

Update the Place You Go to Go

You spend so much time in here, why not remodel the room to maximize happiness.

Remodeling gives you the chance to improve functionality, comfort, and the value of your home. With all the possibilities, you can go from small to large even on a budget.
