If you spend a considerable amount of time bathing in hot water, doing a self-care routine, and relaxing in your bathroom, you must make it a space where you can actually enjoy and feel good. Bathrooms are indeed private and personal areas, but this shouldn’t give you an excuse to neglect them entirely.
Speak to a real estate expert, and he will tell you how vital bathrooms are today. After living rooms and kitchens, it is the bathroom area that homebuyers look for. So, if your house sale is on the cards any time soon, you must not delay a proper and dedicated makeover.
Following are some tips to help you upgrade your bathroom –
- Add New Coat of Paint
If you are bored of stark white walls, you may consider redoing the paint in a shade of your choice. Pick cooler tones for summers and warmer tones if the winter season is close. In case the size of the bathroom is compact, stay away from bold and deep hues. Lighter shades are always the best bet to create an illusion of a big and bright space.
- Replace Taps and Sanitary Ware
Swapping your scratched, worn-out taps and sanitary ware can bring a world of difference to your old-looking bathroom. You don’t need to move your bathroom around if you are on a budget. Keep the existing plumbing system to avoid adding to the cost, but feel free to experiment with new toilet designs, washbasins, pedestals, and more.
- Opt for Bright Lights
The excessive moisture in the bathrooms can impact the look and functioning of light fixtures. They might as well look outdated and unmatchable to the rest of your (renovated) home. So, when doing a bathroom makeover project, update the light fixtures. Install sconces with LED bulbs on each side of the vanity and a small chandelier to add a statement.
- Refurbish Vanity
A vanity helps handle the daily clutter in your bathroom, giving it an organized look. With the right amount of drawers and shelves, you can store everything you need. If you already own one, that is great. Take the DIY route to give the old vanity a brand new appearance. Use any paint color that you like. Replace the knobs and enjoy the cheapest facelift.
- Use Peel and Stick Floor Tiles
Self-adhesive flooring tiles are ideal for you if you do not wish to risk a permanent décor or spend money on floor replacement in your bathroom. These are rental-friendly and easily removable. However, due to moisture, low-quality thin peels can wear down quickly. So, buy good-quality stickers that can match the look of real tile or brick.
- Install Shower Glass Door
Getting a shower yourself shouldn’t mean giving a shower to your entire bathroom. The flow of water is tricky to manage, and flimsy shower curtains do no good. Installing a glass door is, in fact, a better option as it eliminates the drafts you see in shower curtains. I recently bought one for my bathroom from Jubilee Glass & Rails. The shower glass options are unlimited there.
