Remodelling a bathroom does not always mean spending a fortune. There are easy, inexpensive ways to upgrade the look of your bathroom and make it more luxurious and relaxing. The bathroom is often overlooked, but needless to say, it deserves a makeover since it is where you start and end each day.
Repainting remains the cheapest and an effective way to give your bathroom a facelift. Before starting, keep in mind that you need patience and more time to do this because you need to be extra careful when painting around the window and the fixtures. Don’t forget to keep a good supply of painter’s tape handy as well. Consider painting your old reliable vanity so that you won’t have to get a new one. Paint can make a huge difference in a room, and different paint colors can influence your mood too!
Check your fixtures
Little details such as small bathroom fixtures are also worth the change. They may seem small, but they can make a big difference. You can find good ideas online and just recreate them for less. Be creative, and you need not buy new fixtures. Old plumbing can be upcycled to a towel rack.
The grime on your toilet can be very unsightly. Thoroughly cleaning is a cheap way to upgrade. Clean the grout and add some caulk around the sink and tub and you will be surprised to see a sparkling clean bathroom.
Liven up your mirror
There are many ways to spice up a boring mirror. One is to frame it using wood or tile. If you use tile, apply it using mastic adhesive, just make sure to tape the mirror and apply unsanded grout so as not to scratch it. There are wooden frames for mirrors available at shops, or you can also try wood moulding to make your own frame. Stain or paint it before installing. Framed mirrors are also an easy way to redesign a bathroom. Some even add lights on each side for extra brightness.
Hang new shower curtains
Shower curtains collect mould. Maybe it’s time to dump your old one and replace it with a fresh and clean curtain for an instant boost. Choose a unique design with bright patterns or a plain one for an illusion of space. Pick a style that can complement the look of your bathroom. You can also experiment with using a curved curtain rod.
Use a tub liner
If you don’t have enough budget yet to buy even the cheapest freestanding bath, you can settle for a tub liner because it can offer a brand new look. Tub liners are custom made; acrylic liners are fitted into existing built-in tubs. It can be installed without damaging the floors or walls. You can contact a professional to know if this option would be right for your bathroom.
Chipped paint, cluttered shelves and worn fixtures should be enough sign that it’s time for a bathroom makeover. While you might think of it as an expensive project, it only takes a bit of research and creativity to revive it in an inexpensive way. Start with subtle changes that might have a big impact.
