If your home’s bathroom looks outdated, then you can update it easily without the cost of a major renovation project. Here are four simple ways to improve the appearance of your home’s bathroom without needing to hire a contractor.
Change the Color of the Walls
By using a trending paint color on the walls of your home’s bathroom, you can change its appearance instantly. Choose a paint color that will make a tiny bathroom look bigger, and also, select a type of paint that is mold-resistant, making it easier to keep the bathroom clean. For a larger bathroom, you may want to paint a statement wall or use wallpaper on one wall to give it some pop.
Updated Bathroom Hardware
Not everyone can afford a new bathroom vanity or cabinets but changing out the existing hardware is a cheap and easy way to give your bathroom an instant facelift. Visit your local home improvement store and see what designs they have. It helps to also visit their Bathroom section to look at examples of newer vanities and see what types of hardware they are using for ideas. Choose a different type of metal and design to give the bathroom a modern appearance. Once you find a style you like, it only takes a few minutes to remove the old hardware and replace it with the new! On a tight budget? You can also repaint your old hardware to give it a fresh updated look for the cost of a can of paint!
Replace the Floor Tile
If your bathroom tile is old and dingy and the grout color is questionable, it may be time to replace the flooring. Start by planning on at least 3-4 days of renovation time. Make sure you have a second bathroom that your family can use and prepare everyone by letting them know ahead of time. The next step is to measure your area. Measure the length and width of your bathroom and draw it out on a piece pf paper. When you go to buy tiles an associate at the Home Improvement store can help you determine how many you need of the style you choose. Large home improvement stores like Lowes and Home Depot carry many different sales & sizes of Bathroom Tile for you to pick from. Wait for a good sale to get the best bargain or scour the internet for coupons. If you are hiring a contractor to replace the floor you can save some money by removing the old floor yourself with a little elbow grease and a few simple tools. For those of you who are DIY’ers then Youtube has a ton of great videos to show you how to lay a new floor. Replacing the floor can be a little more expensive but the results will be worth it.
Find a New Shower Curtain, Rugs and Bathroom Linens
One of the fastest ways to make a bathroom look great is by changing the space with new bathroom linens, rugs and shower curtains. Bed, Bath & Beyond is great place to find entire bathroom rug sets & a large selection of curtains and if you subscribe to their newsletter you can use one of the coupons they send you to get a better deal. Find matching towels, hand towels and washcloths to compliment your new rugs & curtain. Check out Pinterest or YouTube to learn how to fold or roll towels and washcloths in a special way to display the items in wicker baskets or on the shelves in the bathroom.
