A worn out bathroom is not a pleasant sight and can reduce the overall value of your home. Unfortunately, homeowners often assume that remodeling their bathroom is too expensive and will keep putting off the process. There are ways, however, to change the look of your bathroom while still staying within a budget that you can afford.
Grab the Paint
Painting your bathroom walls is one of the most cost effective ways to change the look of your bathroom, and with the seemingly endless color options, you have a wide array of choices. However, not all paint is created equally and you should choose one that is designed for use in bathrooms. These types of paints are mildew-resistant and can be safely used in areas – such as bathrooms – where humidity and moisture are a problem.
Don’t Replace the Tub
A dingy bathtub can make the room appear drab and outdated. However, replacing the entire tub can be rather expensive. This is where bathtub reglazing comes in handy. This process will require the reglazer to work on the tub in your bathroom using chemicals that can be toxic. However, the process can usually be completed in a day and is much cheaper than purchasing and installing a new bathtub.
That sink or tub faucet can quickly date your bathroom so replacing them can have a major effect on the overall look of the room. What’s even better is that updating fixtures don’t have to be an expensive process unless you want it to be. This is because bathroom fixtures come in a slew of types, varieties and options so you can spend as much or as little and still get bathroom hardware that will complement the room.
Change the Décor
The décor – such as pictures, nick knacks and hand towels – can enhance or distract from the bathroom. If you need a change without spending a bunch of money, consider changing the décor in the bathroom. This is one of the easiest options for bathroom remodeling, and since you can take décor from other areas of your home, you don’t even have to spend a dime if you don’t want too. Other options for changing the bathroom décor is to scour yard sales and secondhand stores for inexpensive items that can improve the look of the room. Adding live plants is another wonderful way to enhance the look of the bathroom.
