A good way to save money on remodeling a bathroom is to install a bathtub liner. These days, bathtub liners can even extend to the interior walls to make a decent shower stall. You then need to add the glass door or even a shower curtain and bathroom becomes a new look.

Another thing to consider when remodeling is to finish the existing bathtub. Porcelain, fiberglass, cast iron bathtubs can be restored. In the Victorian period style houses, you will often see a stand alone claw foot tub. Although difficult to find today, are stylish and are much more comfort than today's models. These tanks can be repaired at a very reasonable cost. It's a simple question for a pro to come and the first seal and paint the tub with a durable glossy top layer. The beauty of this is that you can choose the color. Remember, if you decide to demolish the room and remove the tub and shower, you ask to meet with infrastructure problems, especially in an old house.

The shower / bath unit is one of the most essential equipment in the bathroom. If your upgrade is presser for cosmetic reasons, and you can not live with the old shower stall, consider replacing it with a piece of pre-formed shower. The cost of this is well below the construction of a tile, and you have a good selection of colors available, too.

Whatever you choose to give, remember that a bathroom redo is a significant investment. If you're fixing up a bathroom to increase the resale value, and the travel plan and then use these alternatives to remodel your bathroom. Your budget will thank you.
