How To Renovate A Small Bathroom On a Budget

When I moved into my current house, I was thrilled because this was the first house I have ever owned with 2 full bathrooms.  No sharing the shower with guests!  I was so thrilled with having a second bathroom that I didn’t really notice how small it was.  After I had lived with it for a while, I decided that I needed to do something to upgrade it, even though increasing the size wasn’t really an option.

According to, the average small bathroom remodel costs between $4000 and $7000.  I didn’t have $4000 to spend on the bathroom…I had about $2000.  So I decided to see what I could do to upgrade the bathroom without spending more than my $2000 budget…and I was surprised at how well it turned out!

    What an excellent idea for the cat! I also leave an automatic spray set to 15 minutes in my closet and it always makes bathroom smell wonderful! Love the hole in door with moulding around it.

    • Thanks, Linda! The automatic spray sounds like a great idea…I’ll have to look into that! The bathroom cat door works really well…keeps the dog out of the litter box and I don’t have to see it all the time :)
