These “dresser sinks” can sell for thousands of dollars in retail stores, but you can easily make your own with a budget dresser, some patience, and the right tools. This takes time and patience (and a good supply of painter’s tape), so make sure you keep this in mind when planning your renovation. Since mold and mildew develop easily in a bathroom, and humidity and temperature change often, it’s a good idea to invest in high quality paint with a satin finish.
It you don’t have a lot to spend, then repainting will be the cheapest and, perhaps, the most effective way to give your bathroom a new look. You may also want to go over the ceiling with a special bathroom paint that helps resist the growth of mold. You can update light fixtures, sink faucets, towel racks, and drawer pulls for a relatively small investment.
A popular trend is to splurge on granite countertops. Neutral colors like tan, brown, and light beige are more popular, which means they’re more expensive.
The more visible the imperfection, the cheaper the price will be.
Grout and caulk are both cheap, so this is a very inexpensive way to freshen up your bathroom.
Replacing your old tub or shower is going to cost you a pretty penny.
Refinishing these fixtures is more expensive because very few people decide to do it unless they have old, vintage pieces, and contractors who offer this service often charge a premium price.
However, let’s say you do have some vintage bathroom fixtures or an old tub you don’t want to get rid of. You refinish them yourself if they’re made of porcelain, cast iron, or fiberglass. A basic DIY refinishing kit will run you 0, but you’ll also need additional supplies such as a sander, a spray gun, face masks, paint brushes, etc.
