"You dream about a bathroom thats high on comfort and personal >
Here are a few places to start.
1. A new showerhead
This is one of our favorite ways to freshen up a bathroom because a new showerhead is: A inexpensive, even for one that provides multiple heads and functions; B an easy way to make your shower more enjoyable if youve been dealing with an old showerhead that doesnt provide massage or handheld options; and C also a money saver since new showerheads are more energy-efficient.
2. Soaker tub
Soaker tubs are the hottest trend in bathrooms right now, and its getting to the point where anything else makes your bathroom look outdated. Have one of those giant Jacuzzi tubs in your bathroom? Its probably time to yank it out, especially if your jets stopped working long ago. The bonus of a freestanding tub is it can also make your bathroom feel airier and more spacious.
3. Walk-in shower
Your dinky shower with the tired tile and the metal trim isnt fooling anyone. You dont have to tear the whole thing down but, if you can, by all means Removing the tile and replacing it with something more current can do wonders, especially if youre going from something dark and cave-like to a choice thats light, bright, and reflective. A seamless glass enclosure can give the shower a more expansive and current look with minimal work.
4. A smaller mirror
Sounds funny to be think about replacing your large mirror with something smaller, right? After all, its a bathroom. But if youve toured a model home lately or watched a bathroom be remodeled on HGTV, youve probably seen this swap. Taking down your full-width mirror and replacing it with something more tailored to the size of your vanity will instantly give the bathroom a lift. Have two sinks? Get two smaller mirrors. And make sure theyre framed out. A plain slab of mirror is justhellip;plain.
5. New lighting
Those cheap builder lights are making your bathroom look DATED Some of them are so bad they can make an otherwise stylish bathroom look not so great. Replacing the lights is easy and inexpensive. Just make sure to get your mirror situation figured out first so you know what width your lighting should be. A light fixture thats wider that the mirror is going to make everything look off.
6. Vanity overhaul
There are several ways to make an old vanity/sink combo look more customized and more updated. Changing out the faucets, painting the cabinets, and adding hardware can work wonders. But if the cabinet door or drawers arent in good shape, if the sink shape is just too dated, or if you just want to rip the whole thing out and dump it on the lawn, it might be time for something new.nbsp;If you are going to replace your vanity, take a look at floating versionsmdash;a hot look today that thats also great for a smaller space because it keeps the eye moving.
