Updating an old bathroom Reallifecam house

Another Etsy artist creates awesome, upcycled metal shelving that looks like a check mark. You can easily find upcycled bathroom accessories on Etsy by searching with keywords like “bathroom” or “upcycled.”When updating your bathroom, don’t forget to redesign with the environment in mind.

Low-flow toilets, sinks, and shower heads will not only help you conserve water, but they’ll also save you money.

You can see a good, basic tutorial for DIY refinishing at HGTV.

You can also save money on fixtures, even toilets and showers, if you purchase them used.

To save money, limit the amount of tile and focus on high-impact areas like the floor (instead of the floor inside the shower stall walls).

Alternatively, you could tile one horizontal strip along the wall and paint the rest.

If you have more to spend, you can focus on larger changes, such as adding tile, a bigger shower, or a window. So what can you do to save money on your bathroom redesign or remodel?

Tile gets expensive, especially when you hire a contractor to lay it all out for you.

Not only will the artistic tiles be more noticeable, but you’ll save a ton of money by only using a few here and there.

These items may seem insignificant, but updating them can make a big difference in your bathroom’s look. The items may be out of your price range but you can find ways to replicate the look for less.

Keep in mind that you don’t always have to buy towel racks at a home improvement store or IKEA.

Scour sites like e Bay and Craigslist or head over to the nearest Habitat for Humanity Re Store, which specifically sells home necessities such as doors, mirrors, sinks, toilets, and tubs. For instance, one Etsy artist takes brightly colored vintage Tupperware and turns them into cool hanging lamps.

Another great place to look for upcycled bathroom accessories is Etsy. These could be fun and funky hanging in a bathroom!
