Adding Luxury to a Bathroom without Going Over Budget

Posted on August 4th, 2014 by

According to data from the National Association of Home Builders, the average American house size has more than doubled since the 1950’s, with homeowner’s increasing the size of all rooms in the home, including the bathroom. With reports showing that homeowners pour the most money into renovating bathrooms, only second to the kitchen, it’s easy to see how the budget for a bathroom renovation can easily get out of hand.

If you are thinking about renovating your bathroom and want it to look like a luxurious spa, but don’t necessarily have the budget to match, worry not. There are some clever and more importantly, affordable ways, to add luxury to your bathroom, allowing you to enjoy the finer things while remaining within the borders of your budget.

  • Change Flooring – You don’t have to install a real granite or hardwood floor to add that luxury touch to your bathroom. Since most bathrooms have less than 35 square feet of space, it won’t cost a lot to invest in some new luxury vinyl flooring to add that high-end appearance you’re seeking. Plank vinyl is another option which looks like the real thing, yet is affordable and easy to maintain.

  • Clear the Clutter – Follow the rule that less is more when it comes to remodeling your bathroom into a space that whispers luxury. Get rid of all of the clutter on top of the counters and organize everything in the cupboards. If space is an issue, consider installing a large vanity with cabinet or shelving system that can help hide your belongings.
  • Refresh – How long has it been since you’ve replaced items like towels and shower curtains? Investing in a new shower curtain and quality thick, absorbent towels can dramatically increase the luxury quotient of your bathroom without any great expenditure of money. Glass, mirror and tile areas that are sparkling clean always look luxurious, so invest in a good cleansing agent and make those areas shine again.
  • Think Fresh – Now that the countertop is clear, you have room for a small vase to display fresh flowers or a houseplant that likes humidity. Adding fragrant high quality candles, potpourri and essential oils to the bathroom is an easy way to add luxury without blowing your budget as well.

Small changes can go a long way in making your bathroom appear more luxurious. However, if you are looking for a dramatic change we suggest that you start with your floors!
