Accessories: To go with your new color scheme for the bathroom, choose accessories that will set it off to its best advantage. Other options include adding an attractive shelving unit that fits over the toilet, allowing for more storage space for towels and toiletries or decorative items.
Hardware: Tired of those dull and worn-looking cabinet and drawer pulls? Changing these out is a simple matter and can be done very inexpensively. In addition, you can often match them up to other items such as towel bars and robe hooks to give an attractive “suite” look to your bathroom.
Closeouts: Every smart shopper’s best friends – closeouts and discontinued items are often available for much cheaper so you can get a great deal on them, especially if you shop online for smaller items like hardware and accessories for the bathroom.
Refinishing: A new tub can be very expensive to purchase much less install, but you don’t necessarily need to go that far. Often times, refinishing is a great way to salvage a grungy, chipped tub without going for full replacement. Bear in mind that this may necessitate calling in a professional, which could possibly raise your budget a bit. You may also be able to refinish or reface your existing cabinets for considerably less than it would cost to replace them altogether – professional installation alone is particularly pricey.
Alternatives: Natural stone and other materials can be very expensive for materials and installation. However, you can look into other options such as engineered stone or laminate, which can often offer a similar look but with a lower price tag attached.
