Here are a few tips I wanted to pass along for refreshing an outdated, dark, or cramped bathroom.
Adding a big mirror, or replacing your existing mirror with a larger one, adds light, provides a larger view, and makes a dim, cramped bathroom feel spacious, spa-like, and inviting.
Look for a framed mirror, or non-framed depending on your budget, the space provided, and your other decorations.
Push or pump button dispensers add quite a convenience to your bath/shower experience. By getting rid of the clutter of bottles lining your tub you’re creating space, but also not allowing soap rings and hard water stains to form along the base of the bottles. This makes shower cleaning easier (which means you will be more inclined to clean, and more often).
Shower dispensers can be found at a number of home improvement stores, and at a wide range of prices to fit your budget. Be weary of the ultra cheap as you will likely find yourself shopping for a more quality version after yours breaks in the first month.
New Faucet & Hardware:
Very important, and may be easier to install than you thought. Adding a new faucet (prices range from around $25-$150) can be a substantial improvement to the appearance of the restroom. Installation requires some know-how and very basics of plumbing, but the faucets most-likely come with instructions, and a few quick answers from an associate at the home improvement store will have you wrapping plumbers tape and slinging drain puddy in no time.
Also, look to updating your shower/bath fixtures (often sold in combinations for less than $150). Lastly, make sure that your towel rack, toilet paper roll, and any other fixtures do not detract from your newly updated items. If they clash, replace those with the same (or at least very similar) finishes. The combination of these fixes can bring your pre 1990′s home into the new millennium.
