Bathroom Remodeling Projects: Paint the Walls
For DIYers, painting is a simple project with a big return on investment. Whether you’re selling the house or planning to be in your home for several more years, painting is an upgrade everyone can appreciate.
Purchase quality paints, brushes, and rollers. If you know the room’s dimensions, the paint specialist at a local hardware store can help you calculate how many gallons you’ll need. Plan to use a primer if the walls are stained or if you’re going from a light to dark or dark to light color. Buy painter’s tape for masking trim and edges and use drop cloths to protect furniture and flooring.
Change the Cabinet Hardware
Changing the hardware on your bathroom cabinet will take no time. Update the cabinet hardware by installing modern handles and drawer pulls. New hardware comes in a variety of colors and finishes, like bronze, brushed silver, brass, and nickel. This inexpensive and easy project will update the look of your bathroom cabinets.
When Bathroom Remodeling, Upgrade Your Showerhead
Turn your shower into a luxury, spa-like experience with a new showerhead. Modern showerheads deliver a maximum of 2.5 gallons of water per minute, but with adjustable settings, you’ll still enjoy good water pressure when you bathe. Showerheads are easy to install; just remove your old fixture, add Teflon joint tape to the new one, and twist it securely into place.
Install a New Faucet
If the bathroom faucet has been there since you purchased the house, it’s time for an upgrade. Shop online or at your local hardware store for an attractive and modern fixture. You can easily install a new bathroom faucet in an afternoon.
