1. Swap out hardware and accessories.
Installing new hardware is one of the simplest ways to quickly change the look and feel of your bathroom. Whether it’s a light fixture, showerhead, faucet, or cabinet knobs and pulls, take a step out of your comfort zone and try a new material or design. Hardware is a great place to take design and style risks, since it’s inexpensive and easy to swap in and out.
2. Revamp your vanity.
A vanity is more than just a place to brush your teeth and store toilet paper; it helps define the bathroom’s aesthetic. Replacing your old vanity with a new one is sure to make your bathroom feel brand new. This essential unit comes in all shapes and sizes, so you can customize it to your liking.
Or if you don’t want to replace the entire vanity, you can just change your current vanity’s top and sink for a quick refresh, suggests Dave Lincon, a kitchen and bath expert for Sears Home Services.
3. Install a new toilet.
It’s time to flush out the old and give your toilet the upgrade it deserves. The various shapes, sizes and designs available can certainly make a splash in your new bathroom. Make sure to have a backup plan in place during the time your toilet is unusable!
4. Play with paint.
You can dramatically change the entire feel of your bathroom with just the stroke of a paintbrush.
Can’t decide on a color? Try putting a couple color samples up on the walls first and then living with them for a few days. It’ll give you a better idea of which one you prefer.
5. Flaunt a new floor.
Replacing just a small part of the floor tile—whether it’s in the shower or the main bathroom area — will give your bathroom an instant facelift. Sears Home Improvement offers a variety of flooring options—including tile, vinyl and laminate—so don’t be surprised if it’s hard to pick a favorite.
