Remodeling your bathroom or kitchen doesn’t have to cost a lot. If your budget caps at $50,000, that amount still provides plenty of funding to remodel your bathroom and kitchen. Let’s look at the many techniques for stretching a tight budget to produce a gorgeous home.

In the Kitchen

Rather than changing the structural items in the kitchen or adding cabinets, use the existing cabinets as a base. Strip their existing paint or varnish off, then repaint them. Remove cabinet doors to transform the storage into open shelving. Replace the cabinet hardware to complete the new look.

New appliances effectively update a kitchen. Shop smart for great buys by setting up price alerts for appliances that meet your needs. By purchasing when prices drop, you can make your money go further. Prioritize energy-efficient appliances that help you save money throughout the year by using less electricity.

Keep the same room footprint and layout to save more on the remodeling. Update lighting fixtures and paint the walls to make a big impact for little cost. Countertops can cost little and provide visual interest if you use quartz or laminate for the countertops.

Laminate flooring or vinyl roll flooring covers a large area like the kitchen for a small price tag. Either option provides an affordable way to put the look of marble or wood on your kitchen floor.

In the Bathroom

Structural changes create high costs in the bathroom, too, so avoid changing the room layout. Instead, install a walk-in shower and bath in place of the existing one. This simple renovation only takes about one day of work when done by a professional but updates the entire look of the bathroom. It also costs only $4,000 to $10,000.

Updating the bathroom vanity and sink doesn’t cost much, either. Many combination options cost less than $1,000.

In the bathroom, choose vinyl laminate flooring or vinyl tiles. Unless you have heated floors in your home, ceramic tile gets too cold for most people’s comfort.

Paint or wallpaper provides a cost-effective way to transform the room’s appearance. Add additional storage with floating wall shelves. These wall-mounted shelves hide their fasteners to create a clean look.

Hang a large mirror above the length of the bathroom vanity to create a seemingly larger space. Across from the mirror, create a collection of objects on a shelf or hang a large photo or painting.
