When you want to update the look of your bathroom without spending too much money, there are many ways to make that happen! At JSB Home Solutions, we know it is important to be S.M.A.R.T. with your time and money when remodeling. Here are eight ways to update your bathroom without breaking the bank.
1. Apply a new coat of paint
A fresh coat of paint can work wonders to update your bathroom’s appearance. It offers the most impactful change for the least amount of money. If you decide to paint your bathroom, your first step needs to be washing your walls so the paint has a clean, dry surface to adhere to. Then apply one coat of paint with primer and a satin or semi-gloss finish. These paints are less likely to trap mold and are easy to clean. Choosing a color such as a warm taupe or ash gray works well as a neutral and matches with accessories in many different colors. Or go bold with a bright blue or deep green to help your bathroom make a statement.
2. Choose new accessories and fixtures
New accessories and fixtures are a very easy and inexpensive way to change the look of your bathroom. A new shower curtain and bath towels allow you to change some of your colors, and new fixtures and cabinet hardware can let you stay on top of current trends.
3. Add accent rugs
One or more beautiful accent rugs can help liven up the look of a floor and add a pop of color or interesting geometric design while covering problem spots. They can also easily be changed for new ones if you grow tired of the look. Use these rugs just as you would in any other type of room, placing one at the entrance to your bathroom, and/or using several around the room. Just make sure to add anti-slip padding under each rug so they don’t become slippery when exposed to water and humidity.
4. Upgrade your lighting
Enhanced lighting in your bathroom can brighten the space while adding another interesting design element and touch of style. Sconces are a popular choice for either side of a mirror, as is strip lighting above it. Recessed lighting is versatile and can be used in many areas, and you’ll also find modern and trendy light fixtures in geometric shapes to add an instant update.
5. Replace your mirror
A new mirror can help lighten and brighten your space while reflecting natural as well as artificial light. The options are virtually endless since you can choose from oval mirrors, framed ones, a mirrored cabinet for bathrooms in need of more storage space, a full-length mirror you can hang or lean against the wall and more. Whatever your style or design needs are, you’ll be able to find a mirror to enhance your bathroom.
6. Add some art
Art doesn’t have to be reserved for your hallway or other rooms of the house. Adding some bold prints or paintings to your bathroom can create an interesting focal point to increase the room’s visual interest. You can use art to reflect your bathroom’s style, using pop art in a fun, colorful bathroom, for example, or selecting a nature-inspired painting for a bathroom with natural surfaces and materials.
7. Consider a new countertop, toilet or tub
If you’d like to up your game on your remodel and make an even greater transformation, consider a new countertop, toilet and/or tub. These items can make your bathroom more attractive, functional and easy to clean. They can also help you fix some areas of your bathroom you’re not happy with. For example, a pedestal sink can make a small bathroom seem larger; so can a floating cabinet. A natural stone countertop can be durable and easy to keep clean.
8. Replace your tiles
One major way to update your bathroom is to replace the tiles. Renewing the look of your floor, walls, and backsplash could be just the thing your bathroom needs to look brand new. It is also a S.M.A.R.T. remodeling practice. Choosing complementary colors and designs can change the look of your bathroom without gutting the entire room.
