There’s no denying, we spend a whole lot of time in the bathroom, and no matter if you are a two person or twelve person household, your bathroom is bound to see a lot of wear and tear. If you’re hoping to refresh this high traffic area, but don’t have a lot to spend, consider these five budget-friendly update ideas.
- Paint. Bathrooms tend to be on the smaller end of the spectrum, so painting shouldn’t be too ambitious of a project. Cool tones, like blue and emerald greens, are trendy colours for bathrooms this year. Think mermaids!
- Creative tiling. Tile your countertop, your backsplash or use tile to create interesting patterns and designs pretty much anywhere. The great thing about tile: it’s easy to apply – (perfect for DIY-ers) – cost effective, and waterproof. Or brighten the tile you already have by giving it a good clean and polish.
- Switch up your accents. Things like cabinet handles, mirrors, and faucets are less expensive to replace, and can lend cohesion to your bathroom if you choose to coordinate them.
- Reglazing your tub. What better way to spruce up your bathroom than to spruce up that grungy looking tub; (rather than hiding it behind a shower curtain – you’re not fooling anyone!). Reglazing is a cost effective way to give your tub a like-new look.
- Add more mirrors. Experiment with different shapes, sizes and patterns; because where else in your home is it appropriate to have moremirrors? Pay attention to mirror placement: mounting a mirror across from a window will give your bathroom the illusion of more light.
