Bathroom Updates on a Budget

As many local homeowners hang tight in their current abode as an avoidance tactic for entering our crazy market I field more and more questions from past clients, friends, and family regarding home updates.

My advice is always to love the space you’re in. Sometimes a local move just isn’t in the cards so creating a home you truly enjoy becomes the focus.

Every project comes with a sliding scale of time, money, and magnitude. For some simple and cost-effective updates to your master bath, or any bath for that matter, here are my can’t miss tips:

  1. Swap out dated or worn fixtures such as the faucet(s), shower head, and lighting.
  2. Add shelving and décor. We often don’t think about decorating our bathrooms, but flowers, succulents, canisters, and candles create a more homey feel.
  3. Paint your cabinets. Home Depot has a wonderful tutorial on how to do this yourself. Click here for more.
  4. Repaint your walls and ceiling. Lighter colors in bathrooms add a sense of space and brightness. Going too dark effects lighting and shrinks the room.
  5. Add or replace cabinet hardware. If you don’t have knobs or pulls they are simple to install.
