There are some bathrooms that have an outdated look to them because they have not been remodeled in a very long time. If you want to give your bathroom a new, updated look, but have a limited budget, there are still quite a few things you can do to get the look you want. The following guide walks you through a few affordable ways to give your bathroom a facelift without spending a fortune.
Paint Your Large Fixtures
The color of your toilet, tub, and sink may not be of the most attractive color, especially if your home was built during the era where all fixtures were green or bright yellow. There are kits that you can get at home improvement stores that allow you to paint the fixtures within a matter of just a few hours to completely change the look of the room. The kits come in a variety of colors so that you can get just the right color for you.
Paint the Walls
Giving the walls a fresh coat of paint can completely transform the look of the room. Be sure that you choose a color that opens up the room and makes it look bigger than it is. Neutral tones usually accomplish this goal nicely. If you want to add a touch of style to the room, you could stencil the top edge of the walls or add a border to the room.
Add Ceiling Tiles
If you want to make an even more elegant look, you can add ceiling tiles to the room. There are peel-and-stick tiles available at the home improvement stores that have intricate designs on them so that you can create an amazing design on your ceiling without spending a fortune. The tiles are sold by square feet so you need to multiply the length of the room by the width of the room to figure out how many square feet you need to cover with the tiles.
Replace the Vanity
One easy way to make a huge visual impact in your bathroom is to swap out your vanity for a more modern look. You can hire a contractor to remove the old vanity for you and replace it with a new one. You want to hire a contractor to do this part of the remodeling for you because you want the vanity to be level, flush to the wall, and secure so that there is no chance of it tipping over when someone leans on it.
Updating your bathroom can make you love your home even more than you already do. You could do each of these small renovations over an extended period of time so that you are not spending too much money at any one time. They take very little time to do and will truly transform the look of your bathroom. For assistance, talk to a professional like Apple Creek Homes & Renovations.
When my husband and I got married a few years ago, I moved into the home my husband already owned. While I liked this home, the bathroom in the master suite was extremely small. My husband and I immediately started having difficulties sharing this tight space. Our solution to this common problem was not to move. Instead, we decided to hire a contractor to build an addition onto our home. With our contractor’s help, we designed a larger bathroom that was big enough to accommodate two people comfortably. On this blog, you will discover how to make your marriage happier by hiring a contractor to build a larger bathroom onto your existing home.
