Gone are the days of cold and sterile bathrooms. Instead, homeowners are embracing the need for cozy and inviting spaces, representative of personal style and taste. It should come as no surprise that bathrooms rank as highly as kitchens do when it comes to return on investment. If you’re looking for some DIY friendly bathroom renovation ideas that anyone can do, we’ve rounded up five ideas to get you started.
One of the simplest ways you can update your bathroom is to give it a new coat of paint. Paint is not only affordable, but you can really have fun with it and choose something that you love. There are a few things to keep in mind when painting a bathroom. First, remember that although your bathroom is the smallest room in your home, you’ll need lots of patience to get the job done. You’ll need to paint around the bathtub or shower, the sink, the toilet, the switchplates, the plugs, etc. Second, since bathrooms are full of moisture and mould and mildew develop easily, you’ll have to purchase high-quality paint with a satin finish. You’ll also want to purchase special bathroom paint for the ceiling.
- Change up the Tiles
The style of tile in your bathroom will set the whole scene for everything else that’s in it. If your existing tile doesn’t fit the style of bathroom you’re going for, try replacing it to give it a fresh look. Choose something timeless and durable. You can then plan the rest of your style elements, like fixtures, around the style of the tile.
- Update Lighting Fixtures
A very simple yet effective way to update your bathroom is to replace your lighting fixture. If you rent, or you just bought your home, chances are you have a very common, simple, cookie-cutter style lighting fixture in your bathroom. Take a look online at different stores that offer lighting fixtures and consider purchasing something a little out of the ordinary. There are so many beautiful lighting fixtures available these days that you’re sure to find something that suits your style.
- Switch Out Your Faucets
Another simple way to upgrade your bathroom is to switch out your sink, tub, and shower faucets. This will help set the tone for your whole design. Keep your finishes consistent by using the same types of faucets throughout your bathroom. This will pull everything together and help give your bathroom a uniform, cohesive design.
- Upgrade Your Vanity
Your bathroom vanity is one of the main pieces of furniture in a bathroom. As such, you can really make an impact by changing up your vanity. If you’re looking for a clean, sleek look, consider purchasing a modern style of vanity. It’s also recommended that you purchase a vanity that has storage space, so you have somewhere to store all of your essentials. If purchasing a new vanity is out of your budget, you can DIY your existing vanity by sanding it down and giving it a fresh coat of paint.
