The bathroom is usually the last room any of us think of whenever we are renovating. Mostly, it’s because we think most bathroom renovations would be very costly. However, there are ways to upgrade your bathroom without breaking the bank, if you pull out your DIY skills. Here are a few ways you can upgrade your bathroom on your own.
Change Bathroom Fixtures
You can change a lot in your bathroom if you only renew your fixtures, like the faucet, shower head, and tub spout. Of course, you may find yourself researching how to remove a tub spout that’s stuck, but most of these tasks are simple enough. If you know how to operate a wrench, then you’re probably going to be fine. You may not easily change the entire sink, but adding fixtures of a different color can be a game changer.
Paint Your Bathroom Floor
Unless you’re living under a rock, you’ve probably seen an online video of people painting the bathroom tile to make it more in tune with the design they have in mind. You can be elaborate about this, and use a stencil. Another (easier) option is to simply paint the tile in a new color. You wouldn’t believe how a simple color change could make a huge difference in your bathroom’s aesthetic.
Upgrade Your Bathroom Cabinets
This may be a larger project or a smaller one depending on what type of cabinets you have, and what upgrades you want to add. You may want to strip and repaint them, or replace them entirely. Try to consider practical ways of organizing the contents of your bathroom cabinets. You may also add extra storage such as a comfortable bench with drawers under it, or shelves. Of course, this all depending on your needs, your budget, and your capabilities.
Add Bathroom Accessories
Get that hanging shower caddy you saw on Facebook, and don’t forget the towel warmer too. There are so many bathroom accessories available these days, that if you truly bought everything you want, it would feel like a whole new bathroom in an instant.
Sometimes All You Need Is A Little Clean Up And Repairs
This may not be a way to upgrade your bathroom, but cleaning it is probably the most dreaded chore in many households. Some people are so stunned by the difference they see when their bathroom is sparkling clean, and all repairs tended to – they think they renovated it from top to bottom. You may also want to refinish the grout in your shower, and other similar jobs around the bathroom. These small actions will drastically change your bathroom, even though it may not feel like it at the time.
Upgrading or renovating your bathroom is not necessarily a costly endeavor. If you have the patience and creativity required to do it all yourself, you can have a newly renovated bathroom at a fraction of the cost. Just make sure you do your research well before you start any DIY project to avoid any mishaps.
