We’ve said this time and time again – the bathroom is always the last place you spend money on when remodeling. Mostly because a bathroom is usually tucked away and out of sight, much more than the rest of the rooms in your house. So it can be easy to let a budget go towards updating spaces like the kitchen, living room and bedrooms first. However, a lack of renovation funds for a bathroom doesn’t mean you can’t update it and give it a fresh new look.
Here are 4 simple and fairly budget-friendly ideas on how to update your bathroom with our having to break the bank.
The right light fixtures in your bathroom will make a huge difference too. They don’t need to be the most expensive either, choose some that look appealing to your style but that also allows a lot of light. Strategically placing a few very bright and big mirrors in your bathroom will also make a difference to the light in your bathroom. Mirrors allow for reflection, creating the illusion of more light in the space.
Make sure you use a water based primer before starting your paint job. This will keep all the moisture off of your drywall and preventing it from forming mildew and mold. Another good idea is to look into buying a mildew-resistant paint, most designers will tell you to buy semi-gloss as it repels moisture and is super easy to keep clean. If you don’t like the idea of shiny wall paint in your bathroom. There are some matte paint’s available on the market that has developed for areas with high moisture.
If you’re looking to open your bathroom space up a little with some paint. Most interior decorators will suggest that you paint the ceiling the same shade as the walls. As long as it’s not white! This will allow the room to look bigger as the use of color creates an illusion of the ceiling being higher.
