One of the easiest things to get sick of in your home is a bathroom. Not just from the amount of time you spend there, but the relatively narrow confines tend to amplify everything that might be wrong with it: not enough storage space, bad paint job, overly cluttered, and so on.
But what happens when you don’t have a complete bathroom makeover currently in your budget. Does that mean you stand pat and keep saving, or do what you by tackling those issues of greatest concern to you and other family members? In the end, that’s a decision only you can make. If, however, you’d like to improve the look and feel of your bathroom within your current means, here are three effective and relatively affordable ways to go about it:
- Replace Your Vanity. Is it your current vanity showing signs of wear? Do you wish you had more counter or drawer space? Simply by replacing your vanity along with, perhaps, your sink and faucets, your whole bathroom will look like new. Plus, if you’re competing with family members for sink time, why not consider a double-sink model. There are umpteen models and styles to choose from, including wall-mounted.
- Privatize your toilet. This is another big trend in bath remodeling, one that enables you to separate your toilet from the rest of the bathroom with a full or partial wall or build a separate room it for the ultimate in privacy.
- Heated floor. Stepping into a warm bathroom first thing in the morning is a great way to start your day. And you can achieve that goal by replacing your current flooring and installing a radiant heating system under the replacement flooring. Electric radiant heat for bathrooms can be used as its primary heat source, or simply as an adjunct to remove the chill you may be experiencing now..
Looking for a few more quick and easy ideas? How about a new faucet, low-flow shower head, a replacement shower door, hand rails and other safety features…and that’s just for starters !
