Many homeowners are looking to make their homes a bit more modern, and they are knocking down walls and replacing appliances to do it. Kitchens and bathrooms are usually the biggest targets for updates in many homes these days.
Kitchen and bathroom renovations can get expensive, but you don’t have to have a $50,000 budget with these glam tips. They also have a very high ROI (return on investment). In fact, bathroom remodels, according to HGTV, often have an ROI of more than 100%, varying by location. If you feel like your bathroom is old and tired, have no fear. There are easy ways to update it, and here are three of those.
Get a New Toilet
Sometimes, a toilet gets to be the worst part of a bathroom. If your toilet is old, it may be stained or rusty, and it’s hard to make that look glam. Toilets are actually not that expensive, and they can save you money from month to month. If you look for toilets that have the EPA’s “WaterSense” label, you can save yourself about $130 a year in water bills.
Replace Your Light Fixtures
Lighting can sometimes make or break a space, especially in a bathroom. Lighting can bring the whole look of your bathroom together as well as add an appealing amount of sparkle and shine. The right lighting can help bring out your nice chrome or brass features along with the beautiful tile on the floor.
Glam Up Your Shower Curtain
Getting a new shower curtain is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to give your bathroom a whole new look. Get one with modern colors and fresh designs, and make sure it matches the aesthetic of the rest of the room. Blues and greys are very popular right now, according to Style at Home. Whatever you choose, make sure it looks fabulous.
You spend a lot of time in your bathroom, and you’re sick of looking at the eyesore. Vamp up the glam in your water closet with a new toilet, excellent lighting, and a fabulous shower curtain!
