5 easy ways to improve your bathroom

 

Last updated 7/10/2021 at 8:46am

Adding a standalone tub is one way to upgrade a bathroom.

Remodeling your bathroom can be a great investment. It immediately makes your home more usable and enjoyable, and in the long term, an upgrade could increase your home's value by thousands of dollars.

And a remodel doesn't have to be a time-consuming or costly event. There are quite a few small, low-cost projects that can offer a big impact.

Thinking about updating a bathroom? Here are a few projects you might want to consider.

Improve the lighting

Sometimes changing out a fixture or installing a different type of lighting can make all the difference. You can even upgrade to smart bulbs for extra value and convenience.

Add some storage

Who doesn't need more storage? Whether it's adding an extra medicine cabinet above the toilet or shelves to the closet, every bathroom can be enhanced with a little extra storage space.

Update countertops and fixtures

Changing out the hardware can make a big difference. That might mean swapping countertop materials, changing out drawer pulls or installing new door knobs and faucets.

Add a pop of color

You don't need to paint the whole room, but a pop of color in an alcove or built-in shelving unit can quickly improve the space. You could even do a patterned wallpaper if it fits with your aesthetic.

Upgrade the shower or tub

Could you add seating or built-in storage to your shower? Jacuzzi jets to your tub? A floor-level door for accessibility? It's the details that matter.

One more thing: If you do opt to update your bathroom, don't skimp on the planning. Have a budget in place, carefully vet your contractors, and avoid DIYing anything you're not entirely confident about.
