Simple Bathroom Remodeling Ideas

For Stage 1 of our bathroom makeover, we're going to start simple We'll show you that there's a lot you can do on a small budget

First, the obvious, the wall color New paint can really make a difference in an old bathroom We love this color and it will look great until we completely renovate down the road If you need to repair the drywall, do it now before you paint Cover small holes, with a little patch compound, let it dry, sand smooth, and touch up with primer Learn out how to repair larger holes at Lowescom/HowTo

Also before you paint, remove any cover plates, lights, or anything else that might get in the way Don't forget to turn off the electric at the breaker Make sure the walls are clean and use painter's tape and tarps to protect anything that you don't want painted Check it out New paint really makes a big difference

If you don't love your vanity you have two choices, replace it or paint it Painting is a budget-friendly option for a new look, and later on we can replace it as part of our bathroom remodel After painting, add a finishing touch to your vanity with new pulls and knobs All you need is a screwdriver to replace them You can also give your sink area more personality by updating your mirror OR revamping your old one with a custom-made border

Here's how Cut some moulding to fit around the mirror edges and paint all sides, even the back Lay the moulding on the mirror to check for fit Set the pieces aside Then run a bead of construction adhesive around the edge of the mirror

Press the pieces into the adhesive and let it dry Rehang the mirror and voila For the shower, a new curtain and curved rod makes a big difference And a new showerhead to replace a crusty old and outdated one can makes a difference not only because it's going to look better, but enhance your shower experience There are lots to choose from at Lowe's — some save water, some have massagers, some actually simulate rain, and some even let you stream music into your shower—how cool is that? New storage cabinets will help keep everything in your bathroom nice and tidy

If you're looking to add extra space, try a tall, skinny cabinet, floating shelves, an over-the-toilet storage cabinet or even a medicine cabinet And finally, some new accessories and some cool art for the wall and your old bath has a completely new look!
