How to Refresh a Bathroom on a Budget

    Match your Metals

    Give your bathroom continuity by matching the cabinet knobs to the shower head and water faucets. And don’t be afraid to explore new options. Hint: brass is back!

     

    ReGlaze that old tub


    Retro colors in old bathrooms can be quirky and fun. Usually, though, they just don’t work. Rather than replacing that green tub or pink sink, consider having them re-glazed by a professional for a lot less money.

    Add Water Resistant BeadBoard

    It’s thriftier than tile, less maintenance than wood, and adds casual cottage charm. The water-resistant variety will stand up to the inevitable splashes and never needs painting.

     

    Frame the Mirror

    Framed bathroom mirrors are a hot trend. It’s easy – just pick up a decorative door trim kit and fit it around your existing mirror glass. The look is polished and finished

     

    Opt for a chandelier

    A new or vintage chandelier and medallion add a little unexpected glamour for not a lot of money. If you’re installing it over the tub, make sure it’s eight feet above the rim of the tub to comply with electrical code

     

    Turn an Old Dresser into a new Vanity

    An antique dresser and mirror can make a one-of-a-kind bathroom vanity. Find a dresser with a distressed paint treatment. Then, make a cutout in the top and drop in a sink!

    Don’t let the bathroom be the “forgotten” room. Keep it up to date with plenty of function and a little pizzazz. Above all, make sure it’s always squeaky clean!
