Bathroom Makeover Ideas

Looking for ways to update your bathroom? Whether you’re planning to fully remodel your bathroom or just want to spruce it up with a few easy changes, there’s a lot you can do to update your bathroom for a new look.


How to Spruce Up Your Bathroom Right Now

A few quick and easy changes to your bathroom can really change up the whole look. Revamping the color scheme doesn’t have to mean a lengthy remodel. If your bathroom walls are not tiled, start with finding some new paint color options to change up the look. Make sure to look for paint that specifically stands up well to moisture to avoid any damage to your bathroom walls.

Treat yourself to some new accessories to match your new paint and color scheme. Update your towels, bathmat, and other bathroom decor to coordinate with the new look. These little details go a long way in tying together the overall look of your bathroom.

To really freshen up the look of your bathroom, consider swapping out your bathroom vanity for a new one! Change up the style of your bathroom vanity – go for a more minimalist contemporary look or splurge on more storage with a traditional vanity. Switching out your bathroom vanity is an easy way to completely transform the look of the bathroom over the course of a weekend project.

For a full bathroom remodel, there are a number of large changes you can make to create a whole new look for your space. Start with the foundation and consider upgrading your bathroom flooring. Tile is a classic choice for your bathroom floor, as it is durable and relatively waterproof.

Your tile options today are much broader than the traditional look of porcelain and ceramic. If you want a hardwood floor look in your bathroom, but are concerned about moisture damage, consider a wood look plank tile. Wood look tile gives you all the functionality of tile, but with the beautiful look of traditional hardwood.

Bathroom Wall Tiles

Whether your bathroom walls are currently tiled and need an update, or you want to make the switch from paint to tile, look for wall tile options that complement your bathroom floor. You can create a serene oasis by matching your floor and wall tiles.

Alternatively, consider creating some intriguing contrast between your floor and wall tiles. Wall tiles can add a pop of color or texture that stands out from the rest of your bathroom.
