If the bathrooms in your Hamilton home look a little tired and dated, you may be dreaming of a few upgrades. But bathroom renovations can be expensive. Fortunately, there are simple tricks you can use to spruce up a bathroom that won’t break the bank – and won’t even require a plumber. Here are five budget-friendly solutions.
Repainting Your Bathroom
Changing the colour scheme of your bathroom can instantly transform it from dull to delightful. Start by browsing paint swatches and taking a photo of your bathroom. Then, use image editing software to experiment with different colours. Opt for water-resistant or waterproof paint to prevent moisture from causing wall damage and prevent mould and mildew.
Update Your Shower Curtain
You don’t have to spend a fortune to give your bathroom a facelift. Affordable and stylish shower curtain designs are widely available, offering the same functionality as pricier alternatives. If you’re saving money by not renovating, you might even consider indulging in a “luxury” shower curtain.
Accessorizing Your Bathroom
From mirrors to towels, small details can significantly impact your bathroom’s appearance. If your current mirror is too small, plain, or outdated, you can find quality replacements starting at around $50. Just remember that mirrors are heavy and should be securely mounted to your wall.
A simple yet effective trick is to update soft accessories such as hand towels, bath towels, and bathmats. Choose matching or complementary designs and colours and invest in the best quality you can afford.
Change the Lighting
Transforming your bathroom can be as easy as changing a light bulb. Brighten up the space with a higher lumen output or switch between cool and warm lighting to suit your preference. Some light fixture changes can be DIY projects, but for more complex alterations, like adding heat lamps or extra lights, it’s advisable to consult a professional electrician.
Replace Bathroom Fixtures
We’re not suggesting a complete vanity or bathtub replacement—at least not in a blog about budget-friendly solutions! Instead, focus on “fixture accessories” such as drawer handles, faucets, and showerheads.
Over time, these fixtures can show signs of wear and tear, making your bathroom look dated. Replacing them doesn’t have to be costly and can bring a fresh look to your bathroom. Choose high-quality replacements to ensure your “new” look remains stylish for years to come.
