Don't fret—your bathroom reno doesn't have to cost a fortune to look chic.
Bathrooms are the great equalizer in every home, and whether you like it or not, we spend a ton of time in them. Remember, loving every room of your home is possible—even the less glamorous ones!

And since we're all too aware of the high costs that come with renovating your bathroom, we consulted the experts to see where you can splurge and where you can save when planning out your powder room.

Focus On Function

According to James Tabb, “Splurge on the utilitarian aspects of the bathroom and save on the decorative components." A bathroom's functionality should always take the front seat, so make sure to “invest in a good toilet and a good shower head," he says.

Dial Back the Tile

Sharon Copeland says that porcelain or ceramic tiles are good alternatives to their pricier alternates, like marble or limestone. She also insists that you can still achieve a fun, eye-catching tile design on the cheap. She says, “There are so many ways to configure tile to make a statement!"

Know What's Below

If you're embarking on a mission to do more than swap out the towels and bath mats, Amanda Dixon advises to “Keep the plumbing in the same locations, or at least close, and you won't need to tear up the whole sub-flooring."

Bath towels, $4.99-$9.99,

Reign in Your Vanity

We could all use a vanity check every now and then. Both James and Taylor Anderson agree that it's possible to find cheap yet chic vanities. Taylor says, “You can find great freestanding vanities for over half the price of a custom built-in."
