Are you tired of everything to do with your outdated bathroom? How do you give it a complete refresh without calling in the wrecking ball? Your local pros at Columbus Bath Design offer up these quick tips to turn your family restroom into a spa-like retreat without breaking the bank.
1. Switch Out the Mirror and Lights
While your toilet and tub would look just fine in any bathroom built in the last century, the mirror or medicine chest will feature all the decor trends from the year that your home was built. Replacing the mirror needs only a few screws and an hour to take off the old one with the honey oak frame and install a floating mirror. Now your reflection will indicate the modern world in which you live.
What about those sconces on either side of it featuring dated bronze or brass? A pair of clear globes with a brushed nickel finish would be much more the thing, wouldn’t it?
2. Replace the Tired Sink and Vanity
Your existing vanity may lack storage space, its doors don’t close anymore, and the sink is discolored and cracked. With the right knowledge and muscle, taking out the old unit and installing a new one of the same size requires just a couple of hours of effort. Many vanities are sold with the sink and faucets included, or you can customize the perfect cabinet with the hardware of your choosing.
Imagine a morning routine where there is room to store your hair dryer, all your makeup, and his beard trimming tools. It is even possible to opt for a two-sink version without doing major plumbing. Life could be so much easier and look a lot better, too.
3. New Vinyl Floors Cover Up Signs of Age and Grime
Your old cracked vinyl floor has certainly seen better days. It isn’t warped or rotting…it’s just ugly. However, there is no reason to rip out the old flooring when you just want to update the appearance of your bathroom. Today’s luxury vinyl tiles can be laid over the old vinyl using a quick self-leveling agent and fast-drying adhesive.
In a single afternoon, you can retire the outdated floral pattern and replace it with tiles that look like wood or stone and are soft and warm underfoot.
You could go all out and have a radiant heating mat installed at the same time for toasty warm toes after your shower.
4. Update the Tub and Shower Enclosure
The wall tiles in your tub have been in place since the 80s. They are dull, the grout is cracked, and no matter how hard you scrub, the stains won’t go away. The chrome on the old faucets won’t shine up due to decades of wear and scratches. But there is no need to actually have the entire tub and shower destroyed and put in a dumpster.
Today’s one-day bathroom remodel process simply drops a new tub shell and wall panels over the existing fixtures. Just like that, you have walls that mimic the look of marble and a shiny new tub free of scratches and stains. It’s possible to add a new rain shower head, too.
5. A Quick Trip to the Linen Store for the Win
Now that you have a new mirror, bright lights, a vanity with drawers that work, fresh floor tiles, and a shiny tub enclosure, it’s time to add a pop of trending color. Take a trip to your favorite bed and bath design store and load up on coordinated rugs, curtains, towels, and a few trinkets for your shelves. Hang a plant, light a candle, and sink into your new tub overflowing with scented bubbles.
