If you think your bathroom needs a boost, you’ve got company. Bathrooms are among the rooms most likely to be renovated in a home, according to the Home Improvement Research Institute. Homeowners spend about $ 4,900 on renovations in the first year they own their homes, while about 60% believe their bathrooms are “inadequate.”
The good news is that there are ways to renovate your bathroom without spending a lot of money on renovation costs and without replacing old fixtures. Try these tips:
You could save the cost of replacing worn-out toilets, bathtubs, or sinks with a good cleaning. Built-up soap scum, hard water stains, rust, calcium, and lime can dull the look of a bathroom and make it look older than it actually is.
Try using a powerful cleaner designed for tough bathroom stains, like Kaboom Ultra Scrub, to give your bathroom surfaces an instant makeover. Ultra Scrub’s heavy cream clings to surfaces and its scrubbing granules penetrate deep into rough surfaces to remove dirt and stains, without scratching. Stay on top of how your bathroom looks by using maintenance products like the Kaboom NeverScrub Continuous Toilet Cleaning System. It allows you to throw out your toothbrush and never scrub the toilet again.
Touch of color
Use mold resistant latex paint to add a new color to the bathroom. Be sure to use a container primer on any stains or water spots before starting work and pay special attention to detail areas such as carpentry or trim around mirrors.
Home designers often say that the bathroom is a good place to experiment with colors. If your home has more muted tones, consider using bright tones in the bathroom to make the room cleaner and brighter.
Finally, add some decoration to the bathroom to make it look less nude and more comfortable. You may want to hang some family photos on the wall or a framed photo or two. Just make sure you don’t make the bathroom look too messy. Remember, if you have limited space, home designers say less is more.
