Thinking about upgrading your bathroom? Next, to your kitchen, the bathroom is the absolute best investment you can make in your home. And, if you don’t spend a lot of time cooking, your bathroom may be the more ideal place to invest your extra money into. With the right ideas in mind, you can turn your bathroom into your own private oasis! These DIYs will help you do it.
#1 DIY A Backsplash
Whether you’re installing a real tile backsplash, trying out one of the new “peel and stick” 3D backsplash designs, or even DIYing one with glass gems placed on the wall in fun patterns, a backsplash can completely change the look and feel of your bathroom.
While you’re at it, you might even find that an entirely new tiled wall look is suitable for your bathroom. And, while it sounds complex, it’s actually rather easy to DIY your own tile floors or walls, so don’t be scared to venture to your local home improvement store for advice and equipment.
#2 Upgrade The Little Things
From the light to the cabinet pulls to the towel holder, the small little details in your bathroom can make all the difference when it comes to putting off a clean, updated feeling in your “at home spa”. That’s why sometimes the only changes you need to make include swapping out the door handle, installing a fancy curtain rod, and then maybe framing in your builder grade mirror to really finish off the look.
Just spend a few minutes looking around your bathroom and you’re sure to find plenty of “small things” that can be swapped out and upgraded to finish off the look of your bathroom. This is also a great thing to do before you’re able to completely remodel your bathroom.
#3 Install New Fixtures
Is your sink faucet far too low? Maybe you like the sight of a dramatic bowl sink? How about a waterfall shower head? While you should consider calling in a professional plumber for these upgrades, they can make a huge difference not only in the appearance of your bathroom but also how much you enjoy your bathroom on a daily basis. Also, try using an online bathroom cost calculator to figure out the costs of your renovation
Just peruse through the aisles of your local home improvement shop and you’ll probably find plenty of inspiration for the changes you can make to your bathroom to make it a bit more enjoyable for yourself.
#4 Add The Final Touches
A new bath mat, a fresh shower curtain, cutely patterned hand towels, a soap dispenser…all of these things can really bring the look of your bathroom together, and it’s worth replacing them every so often to keep your bathroom feeling and looking fresh. If you have a rather “plain Jane” bathroom right now, these details can also work to completely dress up or make over the look without you having to put in much of an investment at all, time or money wise.
With these DIYs in mind, you can get to work on your brand new bathroom and start enjoying it in no time at all!
