We know how you are; you look at your bathrooms and know that there are things you would like to change, but who has the time or the money? What if we told you you could easily upgrade your bathroom in little time, for a very affordable cost, would you do it? Of course you would! Here are our top ideas on how you can upgrade your bathroom with a little elbow grease, imagination, and dedication!
These small-scale projects are quite simple to do on your own. Of course, there are some you will need to schedule a professional for, but they’re quick, painless, and easy on the pocket.
Update the Vanity
You may not be in a position to completely knock out your existing vanity, but you’re not too keen on the look of it now. Try painting it a contrasting color, or spray painting the handles to a modern finish. If you’re feeling ambitious, you could use textured wall paper to really add interest to your bathroom!
Add Interest to Walls
Bead board is a great, classic update to any bathroom, ad super simple to achieve. Wood bead board is easy to install, however, if that feels like too much of a commitment, there’s also bead board-style textured wallpaper that gives you the same look.
If bead board isn’t possible, you could choose to cover your walls with art to change the whole look of the bathroom. If there’s one bare wall you’d like to make a contrasting wall, there are wallpapers available that peel on and off. Easy to do, easy to change your mind in the future!
Don’t be limited to these ideas; you can change the paint color, or add interesting design using paint as well. The possibilities are endless!
Remove Dated Shower Doors
Shower doors are extremely difficult to keep clean; installing a fresh new curtain will open up the space, and save you from all the time you spend scrubbing soap scum.
Maybe your towel bar and other hardware are dated; now is a great time to change them all to a more updated look. You’d be surprised what a difference changing out the hardware can make! You can change out the lights and faucet as well for an updated look, but if you’re not sure of what you’re doing, call an electrician or plumber to help. The job is simple enough that the cost will be minimal.
Since the space is small, the cost of replacing the flooring is budget-friendly. Our designers will help you find the perfect flooring for you bathroom, and will install quickly as well. Choose an updated tile, or hardwood, or go for something bold in your small space.
