Check out these simple ideas:
Add a Fresh Coat of Paint
The best way to get a dramatic change for the least amount of money is to repaint your bathroom. Even the most expensive paint won’t cost a lot even if you have a larger bathroom. Painting can change the way the whole bathroom looks and feels.
Repainting can also prevent things like mold and mildew from forming. Over time cracks in paint and caulk can cause mold to form. Repairing cracks and caulking and repainting on a regular basis helps to avoid this.
Changing Out Fixtures
Another dramatic change for a small investment can come in the form of new bathroom fixtures. Changing faucets, shower heads, towel holders, toilet paper holders, and other fixtures can spruce up a bathroom. Adding towel racks for utility or decorative towels can also create a new focal point in the bath.
These types of fixtures don’t have to be the most expensive either. You can get some affordable chrome fixtures that will pop.
Removing Garden Tub
Garden tubs are still in style, but a lot of people are opting to have claw foot tubs that are freestanding. Removing a garden tub is a little more involved than some of the other simple fixes, but it can have a dramatic change to your bathroom regarding space.
By chipping away at tile and grout, you can remove your garden tub and then have a smaller, standalone tub put in to replace it. This opens up your bathroom and can make it appear that you have much more space. Freestanding tubs add character and change a look of the room. Combine this will more decorative cabinets (not the standard rectangle with a drawer and cabinet) for a more luxury bathroom.
Bathroom remodeling doesn’t have to be hard. There are many things you can do to create a dramatic change, and that won’t break your budget. Tasks like painting, changing out fixtures, and replacing vanities can all add a lot of pop to your bathroom.
Removing your garden tub is a little more involved than other projects, but it can free up a lot of space. Use a stand-alone tub to make your bathroom appear larger than before. And it will give you the extra space needed to make other improvements.
