How to plan a budget bathroom makeover

The bathroom may be the smallest room in a house, but renovating it can really blow the budget.

But, there are some budget friendly ways to remodel your bathroom that don’t involve tearing it out and starting all over again.

The easiest way to save money is to keep the tiles you already have. Resurfacing them will give a fresh new look and won't blow a small budget out of proportion.

Respraying doesn’t just apply to tiles. If you don’t have the cash to splash out on a new vanity or bathtub, these can be resprayed too.

Although, not everything can be resprayed. Steer clear of respraying floor tiles - hard-wearing porcelain tiles are always best in high traffic wet areas.

If you are looking to update your tiles, laying new tiles over the existing ones can be a good option, but beware of the raising floor height.

Finally, updating taps with new fittings and accessories can instantly give a bathroom a new modern look.
