The truth is, it’s incredibly tough to stay on budget when it comes to home makeovers. The more decisions there are to make, the more models and types you’ll need to see in-store, the more things you’ll want for your renovation. Luckily, with the following 5 tips from our experts at David Waller Interiors, you’ll be able to flex your creative muscles while still sticking to your budget.

1. Shop for deals

Whether it’s a kitchen or bathroom remodel, the best way to stay within your budget is to shop for deals, though doing so will require some patience on your part. However, you won’t only find sales prices in stores. Craigslist, eBay, antique shops, and vintage dealers, along with yard sales, are a great way to find unique items at low prices.

2. Add a fancy frame

An easy and affordable upgrade for your restroom is to add a fancy frame around your mirror. Sure, you could always go out and buy a new hanging mirror that already has an eye-catching frame, but you’ll likely balk at the heavy cost. Also, by installing a frame around the one you have, you’ll extend the lifespan of the mirror by covering its edges and preventing wear-and-tear.

3. Try open-concept shelves

Closed shelving can be costly, so you can shave a substantial amount of cash off the end cost by opting for open-concept shelves. In fact, they’re a fantastic alternative for both kitchen and bathroom remodels, from an interior design point of view. Since it takes less material to make them, they’re typically more affordable and a popular option for homeowners on a tight budget. Also, they look simple and elegant, offering a way to showcase interesting décor and your new towels.

4. Go for the toilet seat upgrade

For a major style overhaul (at a fraction of the price), go for a toilet seat upgrade, instead of a completely new toilet. Change the handle and lid as well for the full wow effect.

5. Hands off the plumbing

If you can, try to keep your original plumbing intact to keep costs low. That means working around your current tub, toilet, and sink, so it may not be possible in all cases. Once you ask the plumber to install new items, you’re most often looking at the extra costs associated with moving pipes and upgrading materials.
