5 Affordable Ways to Upgrade Your Bathroom

 

When you’re planning a remodel, the bathroom is not always the first area you think of. However, if your bathroom is causing you strife, you may be able to make some simple, fast, and affordable changes to upgrade it. You don’t need to do anything drastic like replacing the whole shower. Your bathroom may look like it appeared right off of your Pinterest board with just a few changes.

Draw Attention to the Mirror

The mirror is one of the key focal points of a bathroom. If your bathroom mirror isn’t that exciting, there’s a simple fix. Look for an interesting frame that will cause the mirror to pop. This may draw attention away from the less interesting parts of the room.

Coordinate Your Accents

If you choose one metal for all of your accents, you may be able to maintain a consistent aesthetic. Pick silver, gold, bronze, or platinum for drawer handles, towel racks, light fixtures, faucets, and even toothbrush holders. Little changes may tie everything together nicely.

Try Accent Tiling

Tiles can be expensive, especially if you want something fancy. If you choose to use pricey tiles, stick to just one area of the bathroom like the floor, the countertop, or the inside of the shower. Arrange the fancy tiles that you love in an interesting pattern around the plainer ones.

Re-grout

The simplest step is often forgotten. If your bathroom is feeling dingy, it might be because you haven’t updated your caulk or grout. Clean, white lines around the tub and sink may make a huge difference, and it’s a quick and inexpensive fix.

Refinish the Tub

If your bathtub is causing you stress, you don’t necessarily need to replace it. Instead, look into a cheaper option: refinishing it. You may be able to do the entire thing by yourself. It could take some time and effort, but it may also save you money.

These five tips may help you makeover your bathroom…without breaking the bank.
