How to Renovate Your Ensuite on a Budget


You want to have an upgraded bathroom, but you don’t want to spend a fortune ensuring that your ensuite goes through a nice renovation. Fortunately, there are some things you can do that will help to keep your prices as low as possible. Let’s look at a few of the things you will want to do when you are getting ready for a renovation.

Set limitations

First, you will want to set up your budget limit. This is the absolute maximum you will be able to spend on everything for the renovation including the fittings, as well as the labor that it will take to have them added. This will help you to narrow down the elements that you need to have done, which will make it easier for you to choose the types of fittings and materials you will need. Have a firm budget in mind and have someone else who can help to keep you accountable for the budget, such as your partner.


Find the right materials

Second, you need to make sure that you shop around for the types of materials and fittings that you want to have. You can buy pieces separately when needed, and you can even find package deals for some of the products. One of the benefits of choosing package deals is the fact that you can often save hundreds of dollars. You could put this toward the labor, or you could find other additional things to do in the bathroom, such as painting the walls and ceiling with the added money. Of course, you could just put that money back in your pocket.


Account for labour

Third, you will have to think about just how the labor will be completed. There are many different things that you could do to help renovate the bathroom on your own and without much experience. If you aren’t moving the pipes in the walls, you can do things like retiling, adding cabinets and mirrors, painting, and the like. However, not everyone will have a DIY spirit. Instead, you might find that hiring someone is a better option. If you are going to go that route, make sure the people you hire know how to work with the toilets and other fittings that you have bought.


A renovation for your bathroom does not have to be expensive. Just take the time to make sure you have a plan and a firm budget in place before you begin.
