Looking for bathroom remodel ideas and costs. I have a $5k budget. Looking to modernize. House is from 1950s with black and white checker board tiles. its 2 bathrooms.
O'boy & I though our 1970's (vertigo inducing) black & red tile bathroom was bad. We tore down the tiled walls & had bath fitter just got over the tub & shower walls. We put vinyl flooring with a padded backing over the existing tiled floor, threw in a new toilet & double vanity. But it was way more than $5,000. It had already rented immediately ($1500/month) & the guy moving in told us he actually liked the red/black tile.
@Pat L. Honestly I’m thinking I just want to get rid of that tile somehow in the most cost efficient way. No need for new tub or sink or toilet.
Whether it be tear the tile out or paint over it? Idk

Sent you a text. I would look to enlarging room if at all possible. This is a demo.tile has to go imo.
add base and wall cabs, random stack backsplash
only run tile just beyond tub
paint walls satin or above
paint semi ceilings
I would have the tile professional sprayed and would change sink, medicine cabinet, window covering, and light fixture. Paint wall above tile - I would go gray. Change vent cover and outlet cover.
I would leave the floor tile because it’s durable and won’t look dated with new finishes.
Things I would do myself to save money:
scrape off the wall tile.
Buy a new vanity and faucet (300-800)
Buy new light (150-250)
Paint the walls and ceiling (100)
I would hire someone to:
skim the walls/patch and repair. (Depends but I would figure a guy for two days so maybe 400-800)
Re-tile tub area and install recessed shelf (750-1500)
I redid my bathroom for $3000
-I did demo
-hired a painter
-new floor and wall tile
-new vanity and mirror
-re finished tub professionally
I’ll try and show before and after pictures if I can figure out how to insert them.
Thanks! That’s actually very close to what I’m already doing. For both bathrooms I’m paying 4000 total.
Can’t post pictures for some reason. If you’re interested let me know I can email it text you.
