Bathroom make overs don’t have to be an expensive, major home remodeling project. If your budget is tight, especially in today’s economy, there are things you can do to update the look of your bathroom without breaking the bank.
The first thing you need to do is figure out your budget. How much do you want to spend or more importantly, how much can you comfortably afford to spend. Once you figure out your budget, stick to it. Remember, your bathroom make over can be done in stages if necessary.
A fresh coat of paint on the walls is a great place to start. Don’t be afraid to use color! If you’re worried about the paint color clashing with your shower curtain and accessories, then buy those first. Decide what design and color scheme you want for your bathroom accessories and then pick a paint color for the walls that will contrast nicely with those colors.
You can improve the way your toilet looks and functions by buying a new decorative flushing handle and plumbing kit for the tank. A new seat and lid can also greatly improve your toilet. A dark cherry wood seat and lid looks beautiful.
Laying new linoleum on the floor is an easy, inexpensive improvement. If your bathroom has a window, new blinds or curtains are a big help. New towel racks and toilet paper holders are quick and easy to install.
No matter what your bathroom design is, a great addition includes bamboo fiber bath towels. More absorbent than cotton towels, bamboo fiber bath towels are naturally odor resistant and anti microbial. These luxury bath towels are incredibly soft and come in many vivid colors.
If you have a small bathroom, try using lighter colors on the walls. Large mirrors help reflect light and give the illusion of more space. A pedestal sink instead of a traditional vanity with cabinets under the sink can help open up space in a small bathroom. Shelving over and behind the toilet can be used to store items that were kept under the sink.
