Bathroom makeover on a budget
With a little savvy comparison shopping and smart investment on highly used fixtures in your bathroom, remodeling can be a breeze.
1. Install a curved curtain rod
If installing sliding shower doors is out of your budget, installing a curved curtain rod can add some extra elbow room and is aesthetically pleasing.
2. Give old shower fixtures a new look
With the help of shower trim kits, making faucet style changes can be easy and inexpensive. Make sure to buy the same brand as your existing faucet to ensure a snug fit.
3. Splurge on the sink faucet
The faucet is the most frequently used fixture in the house, so make sure to find ones that are sturdy in weight and design. For optimal durability, buy a fixture that uses a ceramic disc valve.
4. Hook your towels
You can fit in several hooks and hang more towels in the same space a towel bar would normally take with this simple change. Look for hooks in a similar finish and color as your faucet fixtures.
5. Mix in mosaic tiles
Touches of mosaic tile or other expensive tile add style and elegance without a high price tag. Plan the layout on paper first to identify any design problems.
