Just because you want to remodel your bathroom and your kitchen doesn’t mean that you’ll have to go broke in the process! At Palm Beach Premier Remodeling, we love to save our clients money wile providing the best home renovation experience possible! Here are some tips and tricks we’ve picked up on over the years. Remodeling your bathroom and kitchen on a budget doesn’t have to be difficult!
Focus on the floor and limit the amount of tile on the walls.
Laying the tile out can get really expensive. If you want to save your money, shift your focus on the floor instead of the areas in your shower stall walls. Consider tiling a horizontal strip along the walls and painting the rest of the area. However, if you prefer to use artistic tiles that are a little bit pricey, you might want to use them alongside tiles that are cheaper.
You can make the more expensive tiles stand out by using them as an accent. This will cause you to save plenty of mega-bucks if you use only a few of them.
Don’t splurge on granite countertops.
Since bathroom counters are a lot smaller compared to kitchen counters, most homeowners don’t feel guilty about sinking their money into granite countertops for their bathrooms. However, if you’re trying to work around a budget, think about pricing out a wider range of colors instead of going for the more expensive shades of beige, brown, and tan.
Penny pinchers also have the option to purchase a slab that has visible imperfections for cheap. Since a huge portion of the counter’s surface area will be taken up by your sink basin, consider having it strategically placed so that the faucets and sink can effectively conceal the slab’s flaws.
Repainting is your best bet if you don’t have loads of cash to spend. While it may be the cheapest way to give your bathroom the total transformation it needs, you might want to use high-quality paint on your walls and ceilings to protect them from mold growth. Remember that your bathroom surfaces are more prone to the development of mold and mildew because of their constant exposure to moisture and temperature changes.
The only downside to the entire process of repainting is that it’s going to take a lot of time. You’ll have to carefully paint around your windows, wall corners, switchplates, tub, shower, the mirror, the toilet, and the sink.

- Use a recessed lighting conversion kit.
One of the best ways to give your kitchen a new look is to install a recessed lighting conversion kit? You won’t even have to hire an electrician to get the job done even if it’s your first time to use it. In fact, setting it up is such a breeze that it will only take you less than 20 minutes to enjoy a more dramatic kitchen lighting.
- Change your doors but not your cabinets.
When you’re a little tight on the budget, you don’t have to replace your cabinets. In case you’re not aware, new cabinets could cost you about 35% of your kitchen remodel budget. Since in most cases, only the front parts of the cabinets have to be updated, consider making affordable changes by buying only the fronts and have them installed on your existing cabinets.
- Use vinyl to recolor your appliances.
Recoloring your basic stainless-steel appliances with vinyl is a great way to make your kitchen more fabulous. For instance, picking a gorgeous shade of mint to enhance your stove is a genius way to break the monotony and add more color to your otherwise dull-looking kitchen.
- Apply styrofoam ceiling panels.
Grab an Exacto knife and cut the styrofoam ceiling panels before gluing them directly into your kitchen ceiling. You’ll be amazed at how these would add more detail, elegance, and style to your space without spending a huge chunk of your money and your time.
- Stencil your outdated tile.
Before you think about tearing out your old tile, think about keeping it there and painting it instead. You can manage to free up some room in your working budget if you try to find tile stencils online. Plus, when you consider the amount of time it would take to pry the old tiles of your walls, you’ll thank yourself for choosing to stencil them instead.
- Paint your floor.
Were you disappointed when you found subflooring instead of hardwood floors are you were pulling up your old kitchen flooring? Don’t worry, you can still paint them with porch and floor enamel that is polyurethane-based to achieve the best results.
