Quick tips to update your bathroom

Bathrooms are the one place in your home where you can have total privacy. These spaces are often overlooked when doing updates and renovations to your home. Turning your bathroom into a spa like environment should add value to your home when you go to sell, and provide you and your family with a beautiful space. Luckily small improvements in your bathroom don’t have to cost a lot and with a few minor changes, a world of difference can be made.

Before you embark on updating your bathroom, make a decision as to how you want your bathroom to look and feel. Do you want a spa like environment, or perhaps you want a bright, fresh bathroom. Whatever your choice, be sure to know ahead of time so that you have some direction.

First and foremost, like any space in your home, a fresh coat of paint can add a new, clean look to your bathroom. If you have out-dated cupboards but can’t afford to replace them, be sure to paint them also. If in doubt, choose something fresh like a simple white paint colour for your cupboards. Changing the hardware on your cupboards can also instantly add a fresh look and feel to your bathroom. Choose something modern, sleek and clean such as a brushed stainless steel. Be sure to change towel rods to match your new handles.

Updating the sink or even changing just the taps and faucet can make a huge difference in the overall look of your bathroom. If you can’t do it yourself, consider hiring a plumber to help with these changes. Another modern trend is to install a rain shower head in your shower. These provide a luxurious and spa like feel.

Finally, decorate with minimalism. Buy a few new plush towels to provide a cozy and lush touch to the bathroom. Update your bathroom necessities such as soap dispensers etc… to a modern look. Keep counter space clean and sleek to accent how much space is available. Small updates such as new shower curtains and bath mats can provide a new look on a small budget.
