Four tips to create the bathroom of your dreams
A fresh new look doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Here are our best tips to give your bathroom the love it deserves—without breaking the bank!
Poor or dated lighting can make the whole bathroom feel dingy and tired. Fresh and bright lighting will lift the mood and make the entire space feel larger. Choose ﬁxtures that match your personal style, but make sure they also provide the light you need!
Rethink and Reuse
Think twice before you get rid of the existing features in your bathroom. Knowing how to get the most bang for your buck can help lower the cost of a bathroom remodel. If you love marble countertops, consider marble tile rather than a solid slab. Instead of replacing your boring vanity mirror, dress it up with a beautiful frame!
Start your shopping in-store to get an idea of what you like. Advice from the experts and the ability to see and touch the product will help you make decisions in the future. However, after you’ve settled on the style you need, leave the store. For the well-informed shopper, the same products and styles can be found online for much lower prices! With a little patience and the right research, online shopping will save you a bundle.
Patterned and mosaic tiles are all the rage right now, but they aren’t cheap. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t have the look you love! Pick a spot—the shower ﬂoor or the vanity wall, for instance—to highlight your tile. Use the more affordable porcelain options for the rest of your tiling needs.
Stay creative, stay thrifty, and create the bathroom of your dreams!
