Bathroom RemodelingA bathroom remodel can add up quickly, so when you’re on a budget, you have to be judicious about what changes to make. You also want to consider cheap tricks to modernize your bathroom without having to completely gut it. At Hearn Construction, Inc., we can help work within your budget.

Here are just a few ways we can help you update your space without taking your entire paycheck.

1. Paint your cabinets.

Instead of installing new cabinets or bathroom vanity, first consider whether you can paint them. We recommend that you consider painting your cabinets white—a color that transcends time. However, if you want a more modern spin, you may also consider a warm gray, black, or dark brown.

2. Consider refinishing services.

Instead of completely taking out a bathtub or shower, you may want to consider refinishing it. Refinishing uses your existing tub or shower and simply refreshes it with a protective, durable top coat. You can choose from a variety of finishes and colors. Tub refinishing typically costs significantly less than tub replacement.

3. Choose a modern, neutral wall color.

A coat of wall paint is an inexpensive way to transform your bathroom. By choosing a neutral like gray, white, or beige, you can avoid having to repaint in a few years because neutrals tend to stand the test of time.

4. Change out fixtures and hardware.

Ready to get rid of all that brass? A new vanity light or new handles on your bathroom vanity can really help make your bathroom look current without spending a ton.
