When remodeling your home on a budget, one of the best rooms to concentrate on is the bathroom. Remodeling a bathroom doesn’t have to cost nearly as much as other rooms in the house such as the kitchen or garage. You can make a huge difference in the bathroom with just minor changes.
We at Innovative Kitchen and Bath in Kirkland are committed to providing our customers wanting to improve their homes with the best and most affordable solutions.
Concentrate on Fixtures and Accessories
When it comes to a bathroom makeover you can make a huge difference at a very low cost by upgrading the fixtures such as door handles, faucets and toilet parts. Although not normally noticeable, by replacing old and worn-out features with shiny new ones your entire space looks fresh and beautiful and has added value.
The same can be said for the accessories in your bathroom. Get rid of soap dishes, toothbrush holders, trash bins and other items that are rusted, water damaged, or stained. Replace them with beautiful new and modern ones.
What About the Walls?
Whether the walls of your bathroom are made of tile, stone, stucco or any other material, they take quite a beating every day. Humidity, water droplets, soap scum and grime create a perfect environment for mold and mildew, making any bathroom look moldy and dingy.
The good news is that bathroom walls are easy and affordable to renovate. Wall surrounds can be custom fit to snap into place over the existing bathtub or shower surrounds, protecting them from build-up of dirt and grime. High quality acrylic materials that require very little maintenance, are a good choice for replacing problem areas. For an impactful and very cost-effective method of covering wall eyesores, this is one of our favorites.
The Focal Point
The focal point in most bathrooms is the mirror above the sink. One can make a huge difference to the way your entire bathroom looks by replacing your old mirror with a better one, particularly if your mirror is small, cloudy, scratched or inferior.
The modern trend is a square or rectangle mirror. Whichever one you decide on, make sure that it is as large as possible. Larger mirrors give the bathroom a bigger appearance than it actually is.
Transform Your Outdated Color Schemes
Your colors from the 70’s or 80’s is probably looking past its prime and very outdated by today’s standards. You can make a huge difference to your bathroom without too much cost, just by upgrading to a brighter, more modern color scheme.
