Small Changes Can Make a Big Difference in the Bathroom


Bathroom updates are second only demand to kitchen updates. When you’re ready to redecorate but don’t have the time or the budget to for a full redo - here’s the good news: You can transform your bathroom into a relaxing, new space that incorporates 2019 trends AND renovate and redesign on a time and money budget.
Here are four easy things that can be accomplished in a quick and easy weekend bathroom redesign or remodel:

Pull it together with Paint

 

When you don’t have a lot to spend and time is short, repainting is one of the most effective ways to give your bathroom a new look. Trending 2019 bathroom colors continue to be softer in tone with gray and shades of blue making a strong comeback this season. Don’t rule out the trending color black or Pantone’s 2019 color of the year Living Coral for a vibrant statement wall.

Let it Flow: Update Faucets, Showerheads and Accessories

It’s easy to install most sink faucets or towel racks and swapping out showerheads and drawer pulls is a snap. Adding a new accent color with on shelves, with pictures and towels can make a dramatic difference.  Changing out these items can make a big transformation in your bathroom’s look. This is a great  opportunity to change hardware finishes. If you’ve been living with chrome and want to try a dark bronze or brushed nickel finish, now’s the time!  And while most prefer matching finishes, a 2019 trend is to mix and match metals.

Shine a New Light on Your Surroundings

Lighting is a key factor in bathrooms, which can often feel dark and cramped without enough light.  Focusing on lighting design early in the updating process will help you discover the lighting scheme that will be right for the space. Replacing existing lights is the easiest way to update lighting as there is no additional wiring that must be pulled into the space. If you have traditional flanking wall sconces, consider updating to a more contemporary version. Over vanity lights can easily be transitioned to bar or linear lighting options.

Freshen Up the Grout

Another easy update is grout. When this gets grimy, it gets ugly. By simply cleaning the grout with a good cleaner and a little elbow grease you can add sparkle to the room. Good Housekeeping lists some recommendations HERE
