Updating Budget Bathrooms Brisbane: Our Best Tips

  1. A fresh coat of paint will help you transform your bathroom with little effort and low cost. You might choose a bold colour to make a new year’s statement in your home, or choose timeless colours like white or charcoal walls to give your space new life. You can hire one of our tradesmen to paint your space with expertise and cost effective solutions. We can work to your budget requirements and you can get a free quote before you start the project to ensure there are no unexpected costs.
  2. Create the illusion of space by adding or moving a window, or if you’re completing a smaller renovation, install a large mirror. Mirrors can help you make your whole home look larger and adding one in your bathroom could be the cheapest way to restore vitality in your home.
  3. Updating the fixtures and accessories are some of the easiest ways to create the feel of a full bathroom renovation on a tight budget. Replacing tapware and towel racks with modern fixtures can help revive a tired space. If you want to make a subtle change, you can always decorate your room with fresh new towels, a new soap dispenser, curtains, flowers, or whichever decorative homewares strike your fancy.
  4. New tiles can give your bathroom an entirely new theme without replacing any big-ticket items. You could choose a budget tile for the walls and a more expensive feature tile for the flooring, or pick a hexagonal tile for a creative modern look. Our tradesmen here at Jim’s Building Maintenance are practised in tiling and bathroom installation services. We can work out a timeline for your bathroom renovation and meet any deadlines you have set.
  5. A pendant light could be the statement piece you need to complete your bathroom transformation. This simple addition can be cost effective (depending on which light you choose to buy) and installation is simple. Our tradesmen can have your light installed within hours and keep the costs within your budget.
