If there are parts of your home that need an urgent repair, like cracks or a pest infestation, you should act on those right away to prevent them from getting worse before they affect the integrity of your home. Generally, jobs like these are not DIY, and best left to the professionals.
After creating your list, prioritize it by arranging it in the order you want them to be carried out.
Today – the bathroom.
Low-Cost Bathroom Ideas
Add a frame to your mirror. Over time, your bathroom mirror will show some wear, especially around the edges. By adding a frame to your mirror, you’ll not only conceal the flaking, but you’ll get a funky new look.
Update your bathroom fixtures. Let’s face it, old, worn-out bathroom fixtures are ugly. They can make your entire bathroom look outdated. Replacing the fixtures is one of the small details that actually pop out and will add to your bathroom’s general aesthetic.
Repaint your bathroom walls. Neutral colours are nice. Sure. If you plan on selling sometime, stick to neutral colours that will appeal to a wide range of homebuyers. But if you really want to spruce things up, coordinate your paint colour with your accent wall tiles.
Put up a decorative tile accent wall. These little tiles come in many different designs and can add some much needed colour and design to a wall or shower to really make it stand out.
Install open shelves. Small bathrooms can look spacious by transforming your cabinets into open shelves. This way, your fancy new soaps, towels, and other bathroom tidbits can add to the overall aesthetic of the room.
Lay bath mats and rugs. This will add some colour to your bathroom, offer you extra protection for the floors, and give your feet a warm spot while you’re brushing your teeth or stepping out of the shower. TIP: Purchase a bath mat with a rubberized under-side for the shower area to prevent slipping.
Hang a new shower curtain. Functional and decorative, shower curtains add an interesting visual element to your bathroom while also protecting your walls from moisture. They come in a variety of materials, and price points. Plus, you can go a little crazy here.
Pull the look together with soap dishes, dispensers, baskets and furnishings. Consider hanging artwork for the walls, adding candles to an open counter space, or plants for a touch of nature.
Even though decorating a bathroom isn’t that glamorous, there are many different ways to add character to this otherwise dull space. More importantly, don’t forget to ask for help. Talk to your family and friends about their ideas. If you run into issues you can’t deal with yourself, hire professionals for your property renovation project. This stage is the perfect time to invite them for inspection and get a quote.
