Easy Ways to Upgrade the Look of Your Bathroom

Whether you have one bathroom in your home or several, you may spend little time decorating this space. The bathrooms in a typical house are generally tucked away out of the view of friends and family who casually visit your home, so you may be more inclined to focus your decorating efforts on rooms like the kitchen, living room and family room. However, the bathroom is indeed a highly used room in your home, and some minor upgrades can have a major impact on the appearance of this space.

New Accessories

First, consider retiring your old bath towels, hand towels, floor mats and other accessories. These items can set the tone of your space, and if they have an aged or worn out appearance, the entire look of your bathroom can also look aged and worn out. Investing in a new soap dish, toothbrush holder, towels and rugs can have a big impact on the ambiance of this space. For a greater impact, replace the window treatments as well.

New Light Fixtures

If your home is like most, the light fixtures that are in place in the bathroom are the same light fixtures that were installed when the home was first built. In some homes, they may be a decade or more old. Many home builders will use lower-quality, builder’s grade fixtures to keep costs low. Because of this, the fixtures in your home may have an outdated and even lower-quality appearance. Replacing the fixtures with an upgraded and more current style can have a significant and positive effect for this space.

New Faucets and Plumbing Features

Just as the light fixtures in a space may be outdated and lower in quality, the same holds true for the water faucets and other plumbing features in the bathroom. In addition, the plumbing features may be tarnished, stained or have other issues that are lowering the overall look in your bathroom. You can easily remedy this situation by upgrading your sink faucets, bathtub faucet, shower head, toilet and other plumbing features. This process can give your entire bathroom a much-needed facelift. If you need assistance with these replacements, you can call a professional plumber to your home to replace these features.

Many homeowners will repaint the walls in their bathroom to update its appearance from time to time, but more significant upgrades are needed periodically. By making these upgrades to your bathroom today, you can give your entire space a new and more stylish look.
