Updating a bathroom is a great way to increase a home’s resale and the fixes are not too costly or labor intensive.
Tip 1: Beautify
Add decorative glass, stone tile or accents. Extra-wide wall tiles are popular and wood cabinets can be embellished with carved wooden inlays.
Tip 2: Lighting
Add more lighting options around the room to reduce shadows and glare. Mood lighting around the tub area is also very popular.
Tip 3: Bath/Shower
A new tub, a massaging shower head and a spa-like atmosphere can do wonders.
Tip 4: Update Fixtures
Fixtures in a bathroom can add a great deal. From cabinet handles to faucets. Brushed nickel or other metals is a good idea. If space permits, add a second sink.
Tip 5: Think Green
Install fixtures that save water. A low-flow shower head, low-flow faucet aerator and a dual-flush toilet can save thousands of gallons of water. Energy-efficient windows is another easy option.
