There are many different aspects of home renovation, bathroom layout. You don’t necessarily have to change your bathroom layout in order to get a fresh and up-to-date look to your bathroom. For this home renovation, we changed the look easily and inexpensively.
The steps we took for this home renovation, bathroom layout were:
Removed the wallpaper and painted the bathroom with fresh white paint. We happen to use a white paint named Swiss Coffee.
Glazed the bathtub and shower tiles white.
Removed the old sink, vanity and medicine cabinet and replaced these items with updated furnishings.
Replaced the old shower door with a new clear glass shower door.
Bought and installed new sink and shower fixtures along with new towel racks.
Re-tiled the bathroom floor with an updated white tile.
To decrease costs with your home renovation, bathroom layout, consider glazing the bathroom tiles versus ripping out the old tiles and installing new ones. This bathroom had blue tiles in the shower and brownish-red colored tiles as trim. We brought someone in who, not only cleaned the tiles, but also glazed them white and created a whole new look to the bathroom.
Another cost-saving measure we took was that we bought a vanity and medicine cabinet that were not 100% perfect. The vanity had a slight chip on one corner of the cabinet and the medicine cabinet had a mark on the side. Both of these imperfections are hard to detect unless they are pointed out. As long as these imperfections are not readily noticeable, you can sometimes get lucky and find exactly what you need at a great price! There are plenty of kitchen and bath retailers who not only sell new merchandise but also have a backroom where they store less than perfect merchandise available for sale as well.
Since this house had only one bathroom, we bought quite a few towel racks in order to maximize the number of towels that could be hung at one time. Our thinking was, that most likely, there would be more than one person living in the house. The fixtures we bought were inexpensive but modern looking. Large warehouse stores such as Home Depot or Lowe’s have a great selection of bath and shower fixtures at great competitive pricing.
Therefore, don’t be intimidated when it comes time to update your home with your home renovation, bathroom layout. You don’t always need to spend tens of thousands of dollars in order to add value to your home with an updated bathroom.
