When you own a home, there seems to always be something that needs to be done. No matter how handy you are, some updates will require a professional but there are several easy updates in the bathroom you can make yourself.
One of the easiest things to update in your bathroom for a big impact is the fixtures. This includes faucets and showerheads. Purchase new fixtures and follow some simple directions online and these can be updated in just a couple hours.
While you are updating the fixtures, change out your other hardware to match including the toilet paper holder, towel bars and cabinet hardware at the same time. Brass and stainless steel can be replaced with newer finishes for an inexpensive update.
Don’t forget your light fixtures. Some fixtures may just need a new globe while others can be switched out completely for a fresh design.
A fresh coat of paint will freshen up the walls quickly and can change a dated bathroom in an afternoon. Choose a trendy shade or just a neutral classic that you can complement with colorful towels and rugs.
Replace your toilet with a newer model. Many homes have toilets that were installed when the home was built. You may have replaced different parts of your toilet but go ahead and purchase a new one and start fresh.
A new mirror can make a significant difference in a small space and there are so many options to choose from. Select a nice framed mirror for a powder room or a larger mirrored piece for your master bath.
While you are making these easy updates, go ahead and buy fresh towels and rugs. They can update your bath instantly with a new color.
These updates can also save you money as newer models of toilets and showerheads may reduce water usage and light fixtures can save energy with more efficient models. These updates can be accomplished in a weekend and will be immediately appreciated.
