Are you one of the many homeowners who would like to renovate your bathroom? If so, how do you plan on paying for it? Unfortunately, a large number of homeowners would like to renovate their bathrooms, but not everyone thinks that they can do so. The good news is that you can easily renovate your bathroom, even if you are on a budget.

Where to start with your bathroom renovation

When it comes to bathroom renovation on a budget the first thing you should do is develop yourself a budget and then a plan. You will want to know exactly how much money you can afford to spend on your renovation project. Once you know how much you can spend, you can start the planning process.

Step by Step bathroom renovation

One of the many ways that you can renovate your bathroom while on a budget is by taking everything one step at a time. If you are interested in renovating every square inch of your bathroom, but you can’t necessarily afford to do so right now, you may want to go one step at a time. By choosing what you would like to have renovated first, you can budget by steps or items. For example, it is not a good idea to start with a new toilet if you want to re-tile the entire bathroom.

Where to look for bathroom products

Where you shop will have an impact on being able to afford a bathroom renovation and prices can vary greatly between retailers. We recommend a visit to your local discount bathroom store to start getting an idea of costs. The Shower Man recommends RDD – Renovators Discount Depot if you are in Newcastle, NSW (www.rdd.net.au).

When you are on a budget, to shop around for the best prices on bathroom supplies, fixtures, and materials the easiest way to compare prices is to use the internet. Within a few minutes and the click of a mouse you could easily find exactly what you need for your bathroom renovation. It may also be a good idea to keep an eye out for any television commercials or store fliers that advertise sales on bathroom fixtures, supplies, and materials. The discounts that you can save using this method will surely help you achieve your new bathroom within budget.

DIY or Professional contractor?

Do-it-yourself or D.I.Y can save you money, but if you don’t really know what you are doing it can cost you a lot of money in the long run. One area that you should definitely use a professional is for your shower screen installation. Why risk the chance of your newly purchased glass shower screen shattering because you do not know the correct way to hold, carry or install the shower screen. This is one area that you should budget for a professional.

You will also need to check with your local building authority to make sure that you don’t need any special building license to undertake your DIY bathroom renovation.

So, if you want to renovate your bathroom, but you don’t want to spend more money that you have to or more money than you have, you are advised to keep the above mentioned points in mind. Although it is typically expensive to renovate a bathroom, it is possible to do so while on a budget with a bit of forward planning. In fact, even if you aren’t renovating on a budget, it may still be a good idea to keep the above mentioned points in mind. Why pay more money for a bathroom renovation project than you need to?
