Feeling like your bathroom needs a makeover? Need to increase your storage space? has some advice on how to renovate your bathroom with a small budget:

Bathrooms are one of the busiest parts of the house, they are often one of the first parts of our house which require renovations. If you want to renew your bathroom but don't have a big budget, there are a few simple options out there.

Bathroom renovation ideas for small budgets

Choose entry-level products

Forget luxury items and other expensive accessories. In order to save money, you will need to make proper choices and bet on entry level products. Cheaper prices don't always mean lower quality objects. Look for sales, visit discount stores and consider buying slightly used bathroom fixtures and plumbing which can be found in stores or on the Internet.

Just because you have a small budget doesn't mean that you need to skimp out on decoration. With a little bit of creativity, your bathroom can end up looking as good as the ones you have seen on Pinterest or in home decor magazines. Sometimes, a fresh coat of paint makes a big difference.

New floors don't have to be costly. While ceramic tiles are popular in bathrooms, vinyl flooring can be just as beautiful and comes at a much lower price. They are very easy to install and you're sure to find a design that you like. This type of material carries many advantages: easy to clean; waterproof; resistant; wide choice of colors and designs. Vinyl can be used to imitate other looks: wood, metal, concrete, etc...
