Affordable Bathroom Updates with Big Impact
A bathroom renovation is a highly desired home improvement, but many homeowners put off making updates due to the perceived cost. Fortunately, you don’t need a complete remodel to get the bathroom of your dreams — nor do you need to break the bank.
These six ideas for updating a bathroom will help you elevate the space and add value to your home without a high price tag:
- Lighting: There are three main types of lighting: ambient, task and accent. Ambient provides overall lighting, task helps you perform a function, and accent highlights certain features. You may not have all of these in the bathroom, but you can enhance functionality by evaluating existing lighting and updating if necessary. For example, new task lighting might help you get ready in the morning. If lighting is adequate, simply update fixtures for a fresh look.
- Tapware: A focal point of the bathroom, the basin mixers are often overlooked as a key space for updating with impact. Replacing tapware is one of the most affordable ways to refresh the look of the bathroom. Check out the Signature and Acacia Evolution bathroom tapware collection, which is the perfect choice if you want to add a modern touch to your bathroom without hurting your wallet.
- Paint: It’s amazing how color can transform a space. If you want to make a big impact without much investment, you can’t go wrong with paint. Remember to choose a paint appropriate for the bathroom environment, where it can be more humid. Mould and mildew-resistant options are a smart choice. When considering paint and supplies, don’t forget to look up and tackle the ceiling, too. The visual impact of a freshly coated ceiling is undeniable.
- Toilet: Is your toilet dated and constantly dirty? Consider a new affordable upgrade that makes cleaning a breeze. The from American Standard Signature, Cygnet and Heron toilets cleans and freshens the toilet bowl with every flush, offering an effortless cleaning experience. Hygiene Clean Technology delivers powerful flushing technologies plus cutting edge innovations of Aqua Ceramic and ComfortClean technology.
- Hardware: Subtle details in a bathroom can tie the room together, just like the perfect necktie or necklace makes an outfit. By updating the hardware and other extras that make a space functional, you’ll also be modernizing the style, which will instantly breathe new life into a tired space. Try replacing the knobs and handles on the vanity. Get a new shower rod and curtain. Update the towel rack to match and add some fresh linen. It doesn’t cost much but provides a change you’ll instantly appreciate.
