3 Simple Bathroom Upgrades
Do you dream of a relaxing in a spa-like tub, only to wake up and realize it’s still your same outdated, bland looking bathroom?
You’re not alone. And yet what stops so many people from launching into a bathroom upgrade project is the perceived price tag. In fact, if you were to start the process today and were determined to gut your bathroom and start over, chances are you’d be facing a total expense of $15,000 or more.
What can you do for less than that? A lot! Well, the best place to start is determining what changes mean the most to you, and then getting project estimates.
Here are three budget friendly bathroom upgrades that might just help you achieve your goals:
- Rethink storage.
The medicine cabinet is not the only place to store bathroom necessities. Where else? How about the space over your toilet which, in most bathrooms, is empty except perhaps for a nice piece of art. Instead, why not consider an over-the-toilet cabinet or shelving unit to hold toiletries or small baskets of hand towels. For something completely different, how about an up-cycled coat rack to serve as a towel or robe hanger. Or, turn a small, unused nightstand into a one-of-a-kind storage piece.
- Update the walls.
There’s more than one way to freshen up your bathroom walls, with paint being one of the simplest and most economical. Color sets the tone for any room, and your bathroom is no different. You can match the paint to your existing finishes like flooring and cabinets or make a bold statement with a contrasting hue. Add decorative accents like artwork and mirrors. Or install tile or wainscoting for instant character on an otherwise plain wall.
- Replace bathroom fixtures.
Another affordable bathroom upgrade is to replace your plumbing fixtures and faucets. Installing a new, low-flow rainfall showerhead can make every shower feel like a trip to paradise. Add coordinating faucets, towel bars, and even lighting to pull the look together. With styles ranging from modern to traditional, you’re sure to find something that suits your taste and compliments the rest of your home décor.
