Appealing Bathroom Updates On A Small Budget


Like a kitchen, a bathroom is one of the hardest working rooms in the house. Though certainly not the highlight of anyone's

home, a bathroom may be the most visited room in a house. Since it is used so often, it needs to not only be functional, but also look good.

So, if you're planning to update your bathroom, but working under a budget, keep reading for 7 great improvements that you can do this weekend.

1. Update the cabinetry.

Updating your sink cabinet or vanity with a fresh coat of paint and some new fixtures is an affordable and easy way to instantly modernize your bathroom. If it's in your budget, try updating the cabinet tops as well. Because bathroom counters are so small, you can often purchase marble ends at a reduced cost.

2. Get a glass shower.

Say goodbye to shower curtains and update your bathroom with a glass shower door. Not only will you make the space look bigger, but you'll also increase the value of your home with this modern update.

3. Paint the tile.

If you can't afford to update all your tiling, painting the tile can be a great way to instantly refresh a bathroom.

Usually, you can't paint over tile that's next to a tub or shower (any area that's exposed to moisture), but otherwise painting is a fast way to make a bathroom feel new again.

4. Update your linens.

Give your bathroom an affordable overhaul with luxury linens. Indulging in some new towels will take your bathroom from suburban nightmare to city chic.

5. Light it up.

That dingy, old light fixture needs to go. Take your bathroom out of the eighties by installing a new and fresh light fixture that's bright, clean and contemporary. Not only will the extra lighting make the room seem bigger, it will instantly add value to your home.

6. Go for new fixtures.

Updating your plumbing fixtures can instantly refresh the look of a tired sink or shower. Remove your dingy, soap scum-stained retro faucets and welcome a sleek, new sink. With most faucets costing less than $50, this is a cheap and easy update that can instantly add glamour to your bathroom space.

7. Try tub lining.

Tub liners are pieces of PVC or acrylic which are fitted over your existing bath tub. While a liner is typically slightly more expensive than refinishing, it's a durable and quick way to update an entire shower, including the walls.
