While you might want or badly need a part of your house remodeled, the truth of the matter is that renovations cost money, something which most of us do not have a lot of. In fact, bathroom remodels are projected to cost an average of $15,789 per project. For this reason, remodeling plans which you have conceived more than five years ago have been pushed to the back of your mind and your budget. But whether you are thinking about upping the value of your house or making a much needed modification for someone who is having trouble using your current bathroom, here are some remodels which you are sure won’t break the bank:
Changing the Grout
Do you want to make a huge impact on your bathroom without having to spend your son’s college fund? Then try re-grouting your bathroom tiles. If you’ve been to old houses, you have observed how these homes seem to have no, if not only meager, problems with their tiles. For as long as the tiles you buy are not chipped and cracked, you can re-use them but breathe new life into them by using a new color of grout. While replacing old tile can cost as much as $2000, it only costs $500 for you to re-grout your entire bathroom.
Refinishing the Tub
If you have invested in a high-quality tub which still functions great although it has already look worn-out and outdated, just like every item after it has been used for at least a decade, you do not need to have it removed and replaced with a new one to have a spa-like bathroom. You can choose to have your bathtub refinished so that you can get rid of all the stains and water spots which have developed over time. Not only is this job affordable with services costing only around $475 to $600, this job can also be completed in just 24 hours. While it is true that you can buy a new tub at just a few hundred dollars, the entire work involved will run for a longer period of time than the former which can lead staggering labor fees of up to thousands.
Because we never forget to look at ourselves in the mirror when we’re in the bathroom, doing something as simple as getting a new mirror is sure to not be left unnoticed. One of the tricks of really getting the best out of any remodel is to spend time on the items and parts of the house which are often used.
