Looking to give your bathroom a face lift but don't know where to start? We've got some simple tips to add some color to the walls and floors for a refreshing and affordable bathroom remodel.
Paint Your Bathroom Pretty
The biggest change you can make on a budget is a fresh coat of paint. Whether you’re working with wallpaper from the 70s, or just an outdated color, priming and painting your bathroom walls can add light and color back into a dreary space. Choose a cool, calming blue or an energetic yellow.
Use this opportunity to touch up your cabinetry as well. If your cabinet doors are stained or chipped, a good sanding, priming, and new coat of paint should do the trick to make them look as good as new. Best of all, you can do it all in one weekend!
Brighten Up Your Floors
Flooring can be intimidating, but bathrooms are smaller spaces and more affordable to renovate. There are several options, from painting your current floor, to retiling or choosing a water-safe hardwood solution.
We recommend tiling, since it can actually be quite affordable if you do it yourself. Select a tile design that offers a bright pop of color, or a neutral hue that coordinates with your design theme.
