A bathroom upgrade can be a worthy investment when it comes to your property evaluation and if you’re planning to sell your home in the future. It can also be a great value-add to your family who uses this space every day. Here we share a few simple ideas to help you upgrade your bathroom, even on a budget.
Replace Old Fixtures
A simple way to add a new, fresh and modern feel to an older bathroom is to update your space using modern sanitary ware and accessories. Replace old sinks and taps with sleek, streamlined alternatives and add a contemporary shower head to your outdated shower. These small changes will certainly help in any bathroom transformation.
2. A Fresh Coat of Paint
One of the easiest ways to freshen up any room is with a fresh coat of paint. Keep your bathroom contemporary and timeless with a neutral palette. Sometimes fresh white walls can uplift and brighten this space. We also love the idea of refreshing old cabinetry in paint – see this beautiful black bathroom cabinet featured above for some inspo!
3. Choose Tiles Strategically
You don’t have to tile your entire bathroom from floor to ceiling. This can be a costly exercise, especially if you are planning to get a professional in to do the job properly. Instead, choose quality tiles and only tile high-impact areas in the bathroom, such as around the tub, in the shower, as a backsplash behind the basin and for the floors. This way you may be able to spend more money on stylish, durable tiles used strategically in the bathroom.
4. Upcycle In The Bathroom
Reuse items you already have around the house or scour a second-hand store for bathroom furniture and accessories. Old copper piping may be ideal as a towel rack, while a vintage dresser or desk can easily be converted in a bathroom storage unit. Save on costs where you can and get creative with older pieces – giving them, and your bathroom, a new lease on life.
