4 easy bathroom updates

Whether you’re short on time, short on budget or simply aren’t ready to take the plunge, if now isn’t the right time for a complete bathroom renovation, take heart. Even if you can’t get into a full gut job, there are still a lot of things that you can do to give your bathroom an impactful update. Sometimes, all you really need is a fresh coat of paint and some new accessories. Here are 4 easy bathroom updates that you can make this weekend!

Dark walls

If you’ve spent time online looking for bathroom inspiration, or if you’ve been watching home renovation shows lately, then you might have noticed that dark and even black walls are kind of a thing right now. So, why not give the dark wall trend a try? Dark bathroom walls are especially fetching against white tile work in the shower and on the floor.

By the way, if you’re afraid that your bathroom might be too small to go dark, you should know that some small spaces can do just fine with a dark wall colour. Just be sure to balance the dark with light –in terms of accessories, lighting and fixtures.

Metallic accessories

The easiest way to add newness to your bathroom is by updating the accessories. And, if you incorporate the season’s love of metallic finishes, then even the smallest change is bound to have a big impact. Change the mirror; add some art and even a glimmering étagère.

Sleek Fixtures

Your bathroom fixtures are rather utilitarian part of your bathroom, but that doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t be beautiful. Switching them out will add a sleek, new look to your bathroom sink or shower/bathtub.

Installation is relatively easy project to take on yourself. Of course that depends on how handy you are. If in doubt, then a plumber can certainly install any sink or shower fixtures for you.

Updated lighting

Changing your lighting fixtures may seem like a small, simple edit, but it can really revive the look and feel of a room. This is especially true if your bathroom is still sporting one of those builder-grade light strips with the bare vanity bulbs. You know the one.
