Richard’s Bathroom Renovation
Handyman reader Richard Newland and his wife took on the challenge of renovating their bathroom with a modest budget. The result was this amazing transformation.
While the couple’s bathroom was not in shambles prior to the renovation, it was dated and lacked the luxurious feel their current bathroom posseses.
‘My wife and I had a very small budget of $5000 to renovate our bathroom. We wanted new flooring, wall sheeting and tiles that would reach around the shower, vanity and mirror,’ says Richard.
‘We also designed the vanity the way we wanted and had a local kitchen manufacturer build it for less than $250. I put in the recessed shelving and had an electrician install downlights.’
‘We’re really pleased with the result and we believe we saved thousands by shopping around and buying a lot on eBay, thinking outside the square and getting in and having a go ourselves,’ says Richard.
