Bathroom Makeover

DIY: Weekend Bathroom Makeover

Is your bathroom feeling outdated? Are you renovating the home you recently bought but did not have the budget to do the bathroom too?

If you are feeling motivated to give your bathroom a few updates, we are here to give you some DIY bathroom projects you can do in just one weekend. We want to show you that you do not need lots of time or a big budget to spruce up your bathroom.

A Little Paint Goes a Long Way

The color paint in a room sets the tone. A mellow, deep burgundy would look beautiful in a dining room but could feel claustrophobic in a bathroom. Changing the color of your walls or fixtures can help make your bathroom feel like a new room.

You can either paint the entire room the same color or paint an accent wall — get creative! You could even pick up some stencils to give it a truly unique touch. Freshen up older fixtures, like cabinets, with a new coat of paint. Painting is a lower-cost project, but it can really do wonders.

Install New Hardware

Another simple project that can make a big difference is installing updated hardware. You can put in new handles on the cabinets, install a new faucet or add some extra lighting.

Try going to a hardware or home goods store and browsing. Many of these stores will have samples sitting out, letting you get a feel for the hardware before you purchase it. After you decide on the right one, installing it could take as little as an afternoon.

Once you see that shiny new faucet at your sink or a new and modern light fixture, you will feel the difference every time you go into your bathroom.

Update the Decor

If you are not handy with tools or want a simpler update, changing up the decor of the bathroom can do a lot.

You could pick a theme, for example, like coastal or rustic, or you could pick a few colors and center the decor around them. If you have a unique piece, like a painting, you would like to display, you can make it the focal point and center the other colors and decor around it. 

Whether you change up the entire decor or simply add a piece or two to the space, changing how the bathroom is decorated makes it feel fresh and new without too much of a fuss. You can decide exactly how much you want to spend, and it does not take much time at all to set up.
