Bathrooms can be a tricky area to update, especially since they come in a variety of shapes and sizes. For example, if you have a small bathroom, you’ll want to choose the appropriate size vanity that won’t make it too crowded.
Let’s start simple by talking about updating your vanity. Much like the kitchen, you can change out the hardware and paint the cabinets. You can also paint your sink. Check out this article that takes you step by step on how to refinish your sink.
Depending on the condition and age of your bathtub, you have several options. If the tub looks aged or is an old color straight out of the 60s and 70s, you can always paint your bathtub. Another option is also repairing chips in the finish if you have them. This would be for minor repairs and will help prevent further chipping. Replacing the tub altogether can be expensive depending on what you are looking for, but it has the potential to be a do it yourself job. Make sure to educate yourself on any plumbing questions so you don’t end up without a usable bathroom.
On the simpler side, adding a frame around your mirror is a quick fix that can provide a more finished and updated look.
Finally, another quick update to your bathroom is frosting any windows. If your bathroom window isn’t already, you can add a vinyl frost sticker to the window. This will allow your bathroom to have more light, and you could hang sheer curtains to finish the look.
Updating your bathroom can be as simple or as complicated as you would like. The best thing to do is to assess what is a functionality update and what is a cosmetic update, then choosing what will work best with your space. Research, budgeting, and a little elbow grease can make your do it yourself dreams come true!
