Your bathroom is more than likely the most visited room in your house. So here are 5 fantastic tips the D-I-Y can do to brighten up your bathroom and make every visit a pleasure and at the same time add value to your home.
1. Brighten Up the Walls:
To brighten up the walls a simple paint job is the easiest way to do it. To make it last, use a paint suited for high humidity and do a good job prepping the wall.s When choosing colors, don’t shy away from bright colors, they can be used to enhance the size of your bathroom.
2. Replace Waterproof Seals:
With your walls looking clean, bright and welcoming, it’s time to get rid of the old and bring in the new. Over the years the waterproof seals, such as caulking around your bath and sink, collect mold and can loose color. A handy tip is to simply replace them for new. Alternatively, a good scrub down with bleach can do the job for while or clear sealers.
3. New Lighting:
Other items to be replaced are the light fixtures. the tip here is to use fixtures which match the color and design of your bathroom. If replacing light fixtures try to keep to the same size as the previous, this will allow little drywall repair. If you don’t feel comfortable wiring lights, please call an electrician. It is also important to note that the lights should be bright enough but not overly bright that it hurts your eyes.
4. Grab some New Towels:
Another easy way to brighten up your bathroom is to get some new towels. Being constantly used, bath towels tend to loose color and fray leaving a dirty look, they also can loose some of their drying ability. Simply replace them when they wear and new towels are the quickest and easiest way to decorate your bathroom.
5. New Bathroom Hardware:
Lastly, replacing your old worn out hardware, such as faucets, shower rods, etc , is another handy spruce-up tip. Overtime, bathroom hardware can loose its shiny look and become discolored. Faucets can become built up with lime or mineral deposits, too. To resolve this, new towel rods, robe hooks, shelves, cup holders besides faucets and other bathroom ware can be replaced with new to make an amazing difference at a low cost.
