View Full Version : Upgrading shower on a tight budget

02-24-2015, 02:57 PM
We recently moved into a new home.

The bathroom is in good shape and has your standard-type tub and shower unit.

We would like to do some type of upgrade to the tub/shower stall, but right now we're on a tight budget.

What do you recommend we do for an affordable shower upgrade?

I have two suggestions and both can usually be done without having a large budget.

1. Change out the showerhead.

Showerheads come in all price ranges, and chances are you'll find one you like, along with a price tag you also like. Plus, using a brand-new shower head can feel invigorating, especially if you get one with different settings.

2. If you want a little extra room in your shower, I also recommend changing your shower curtain rod to a new curved-type.

Curved shower rods basically install the same way as a standard shower rod. But, with an outward curved rod, you can get a little extra shoulder room.

Like the showerhead, this project can also be affordable, so you might say that two small changes can really make one big difference.
