Your bathroom, in particular, might be seeing the worst of it. It might be time to invest some of your money into updating the space. Homeowners in Vancouver tackled these bathroom renovation projects for under $10,000. Read on to take a look at what they did and how it turned out!
Shower Glass Replacement for $2,000 in West Vancouver
The great thing about having to update your bathroom is that you don’t necessarily have to do it all at once. Little updates can have a huge impact (read here for tips on how to transform your bathroom without renovating it). The Glass Doctor of North Vancouver replaced Stephanie’s shower glass in her bathroom for $2,000. Along with fitting into Stephanie’s budget, a frameless glass door provides a more sleek design to the space. Updating your shower glass from opaque to transparent will open up the room and make it brighter. Plus, it will show-off your beautiful shower tile that has been hidden away for all those years. This simple yet effective reno is a great way to transform your bathroom.
Shower Pan Replacement for $2,400 in Vancouver
If your shower is showing its age through a dated, grimy floor, don’t worry, it’s not necessary to replace the whole shower! The floor of your shower has the highest risk of potential mold, cracks, and other damage. Even though the floor might be damaged, it’s possible that your showers tiles, door, and fixtures are still perfectly fine. Luckily, it’s possible to replace just your shower pan. This was the case with Chiwara’s shower and they took advantage of only having to replace the shower pan. Bathroom Design Build was able to replace the shower pan, along with some bottom tiles (matching them perfectly to the existing ones), to keep the shower’s original tile walls intact. In doing so, Chiwara was able to save money, and keep their perfectly fine shower in place.
Full Bathroom Reno for $6,500 in Surrey
If your bathroom is just simply dated, it might be time to give it the update it needs. Evelyn and her family had PBN CONSTRUCTION LTD. update their entire bathroom. While they did reno the whole space, they were able to save money by keeping the shower, toilet, and vanity in the same location. In doing so, no plumbing had to be moved – which can be expensive.
These homeowners made great use of their bathroom space that already existed. They made their shower bigger and added an accent wall which helps to brighten the room. They managed to keep their same cabinetry, updating the cabinet doors and hardware, the countertop, and the sink. And finally, a new paint job, lighting, and flooring tied everything together. You can see just by looking at the before and after photos how much this reno transformed the space, and only for $6,500.
