Bathroom Ideas on a Budget
I am so ready to redecorate and redesign our bathroom. Being totally honest the last time we painted it was 12 years ago! Don’t get me wrong it’s not awful as we spent a lot of money on it, but it is so dated now that I really do need to redecorate.
However, we certainly don’t have a lot of money. But the good news is that I have done all the hard work for you and pulled together some totally amazing Bathroom Suites for a variety of bathroom sizes and at fantastic prices.
As I am at the beginning phase of redecorating I wanted to share with you the fact that updating a bathroom in your home will add value if you plan to move in the future. Another tip is to determine how much you want to spend on your new bathroom and factor in the cost of a plumber and electrician too.
So, what are you waiting for? Below are some bathroom suite ideas together with other money saving tips on redecorating your bathroom.
- Small Spaces
Bathroom suites can get expensive and if you are stuck for space where do you go? This fantastic suite is ideal for small spaces. For less than £230 you get the complete set.

Tile can be expensive and if you want to tile the walls and floor you will probably have to fork out for a tiler to do the job for you. In my experience I now wish we didn’t tile the floor as we had a radiator leak! So, to save you money how about limiting the number of tiles you use. Instead focus on having a feature wall or somewhere you want to make a high impact.
If you are happy with your tiles as they are, one of the cheapest things you can do to freshen your bathroom is to use paint. Word of caution though if you are doing the paining yourself – take your time. It took us forever to paint ours as we had so much to paint round. From the shower, freestanding bath, sink, toilet – it was endless. I recommend you buy some painter’s masking tape and have some patience too!
Showers, Fixtures & Fittings
There are so many options when it comes to replacing a shower. You can opt for replacing the whole lot or just your screen or fixtures and fittings. Head over to the Big Bathroom Shop to see the full range of different options available to you. Remember to stick to your budget and options which work best for you.
You also have the option to update light fixtures, sink taps and towel racks which wouldn’t cost much. Updating them could make a huge difference to your bathroom with little outlay. I mean just look at this fantastic mirror light, it would make any bathroom stand out.

Another way to freshen up your bathroom is to redo your grout on your tiles. It’s so cheap to buy white grout these days it will give you clean lines, crisp whiteness, and sparkle. Getting rid of that unsightly grim is a must to cheer up a dull bathroom without spending a lot.
As I have already mentioned renovating the bathroom is firmly on my to-do list. I really want to add a vanity unit too. Below I’ve put a mood board together to show you what items I’m considering buying. They are all within my budget range.
What about you? Are you considering redecorating your bathroom? Do you have any other money saving tips to share?
My Mood Board
I love freestanding baths but this one is extra special as the back is flush with the wall. Otherwise there would be a gap and you’d have a nightmare painting behind it! I’m a very practical person!
Yes I love the mirror but I also love the sink and vanity unit. Our current sink has no vanity unit and the space beneath is wasted. I really need this now!
We have a miserable little shower head but wow look at this shower tower! Being able to stand under this with all the different options would be fantastic.
Oh to have wall mounted taps – how luxurious. Only problem is that I’d need to probably knock down some of the bathroom wall. Don’t know if I’m ready for that mess!
