If you’re looking to upgrade a single room in your house, look no further than the bathroom.
The bathroom is one of the rooms in the house where you can get the most return on the dollars you put into improving it. Plus, the bathrooms is one of the rooms in the household that will see the most usage – especially so if you’ve got a family or love to have guests over.
That’s why you should also consider improving the bathroom, because by basic use over time the bathroom is going to get dirty and quite incredibly grimey!
Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to improve the bathroom for any kind of budget. Firstly, we’ll look at how we can fix up the bathroom instantly on a low budget.
If you utilise wooden crates, you can achieve a rustic look and a storage space for your smaller bathroom amenities which includes drying towels, but isn’t limited to them. You can store toilet paper, bath robes and cosmetics along with other smaller objects within wooden crates. If storage is an issue, look towards a shelf rack where you can add hooks to hang stuff on up high to keep it out the way and off the floor. Woven baskets serve the same purpose as crates and it’s likely that you may have a spare lying around. Flowers or a new paintjob are also quick fixes to improve the general look of a bathroom. It’s one of the best places to relax, so it’s worth looking for the easiest ways to improve it!
The bath can be easily improved in a number of ways. Firstly, replace the older caulk that seals in the bathtub. Adding new white caulk can make your bathtub look a lot fresher and even like new! It also has the added benefit of strengthening the seal of the tub, meaning it will be less likely to leak out excess water. Adding a nightstand or small table is a good idea to enhance any bathing experience, and you can store bath salts, towels, bath products, smelling salts, candles and other things near your grasp. It doesn’t look bad either! You can also add a bath rack that hangs over the tub which looks nice and adds a bit more storage to your bath!
If you want to advance a bit further, consider a new bath, shower or sink to freshen up your bathroom. If you can’t afford a replacement bath, consider getting the tub relined for a new look. A new mirror can also help, but if your mirror isn’t bad – simply add a new trim or border to add plenty of life. Towel rails also serve as storage solutions for your towels and you can look for a bit more decadence through a rail storage option that is heated!
If you want a premium way of fixing up your bathroom, look for a layout renovation to improve how your bathroom uses space, or simply get the bathroom retiled. These options do come at the highest cost, but are worth it if you are thoroughly unhappy with your current bathroom and have the money to spare.
