First of all, you can instantly change the look of your bathroom by changing the hardware. This simply means replacing door handles, knobs, faucet handles, and any other small components. Additionally, shower heads and rods are pretty cheap and easy to replace. Bathroom remodeling is not as hard as you thought now is it?

Step 2 – Ceramics

The next step is to refinish your ceramics. Refinishing can easily cost you 90% less than to buy new tiles, bathtubs, and other ceramic items. This process makes them look as good as new, and saves you a lot of money at the same time. This is something you want to let the pros handle in your bathroom remodeling project.

Step 3 – Paint job

The last step is painting over your current bathroom counters. You have to keep in mind that once you paint, you need at least 3 weeks for the paint to cure properly. This is a drastic step, but make sure you plan your colors properly. You don’t want to paint something light green and then decide a week later that it was not the right choice. You also want to do this when you are sure you are going to replace the counters anyway. This cosmetic change is good for about a year.
