Bathrooms are small but important. Make yours feel fresh and new with these easy, inexpensive updates.
A gallon of paint costs around $30 to $50 and can transform the whole bathroom. Satin-sheen paint is easy to clean and has good durability. White and lighter neutral colors like taupes or grays can make smaller spaces like bathrooms feel larger. Don’t forget to refresh the moldings and door frames with a coat of semi-gloss trim paint! Make sure to clean up those drips after painting. It’s the little things that people tend to notice and then think about what else is wrong.
A bit of greenery can help freshen your bathroom up. It doesn’t have to be big or fancy. Start with a grouping of glass bottles, vases, or mason jars filled with water. Cut sprigs of greenery or flowers from your yard and add them to the glassware. This is a simple, inexpensive update that makes a powerful impact. People take in your home with all of their senses so be sure their senses will find things appealing.
Clearing bathroom clutter is a great way to refresh your bathroom. A wooden peg rack is an inexpensive alternative to a towel rack. Towels can be stored in wire baskets for a retro look, and over-the-faucet shower organizers keep your shampoos out of the way and organized. Don’t forget to add hooks or an over-the-door organizer to the back of the door to hang robes, towels, and other items. Clean out your medicine cabinet and all of the drawers and cabinets in the vanity.
Update the vanity.
Many bathrooms could use some extra storage space. If your budget allows, replace your old vanity with a new one. Make sure the new one has plenty of drawers and cabinets so you can keep counters clear.
Updating your home doesn’t have to cost a fortune. A few repairs, a fresh coat of paint, some nifty organization, and poof! Your home feels new again. Still, sometimes it’s good to start fresh.
