If you don’t want to spend a big amount for refurbishing. The cheapest and the most effective way is to get your washroom painted to achieve a new look.

Another thing is molds that popped up due to moisture and has settled on the ceiling and walls. This is created due to humidity and temperature. If you have this issue go for a satin finish paint or special bathroom paint that hampers molds growth.

Tiling is expensive when you hire a contractor for getting the job done. If you have to changes tiles limit it as per the basic requirement. Like focusing on floors or near the shower is a better idea rather covering up? Even to save to core you can use tiles horizontally near the wall and rest leave for paint.
