5 Tips to Update Your Bath on a Small Budget

5 Tips to Beautify Your Bath on a Budget

Try Granite – Because bathroom countertops are fairly small, you can swap out dated tile countertops for more attractive granite without spending a fortune. A light, neutral color will maximize natural light, while a darker, high-gloss color can add drama.

Focus on the Faucet – Today’s faucets, in a wide variety of finishes from white to brass to traditional chrome, can add new charm to any bathroom for $200 or less. If you’ve an urge to splurge, consider replacing the sink as well with a new drop-in, wall mount, or above counter vessel design.

Showerheads to Swoon Over – Replacing an old showerhead with a drenching but soothing rainforest model, or a three-way head that can target shampoo or your sore muscles, can make you feel like you’re in your own spa—and all for under $100.

Love the Lighting – Augment an old fashioned ceiling light with wall-mounted lighting to add warmth and value to your bath. Savvy shoppers can do that—and even add some flattering light above the mirror—for well under $300.

Warm It Up – When you step out of the bath, there is nothing like a heated floor and/or heated towel bars to make your feel like you live in the lap of luxury. Radiant floor heating can cost as little as $5 and $8 per square foot, and a wall-mounted towel warmer can grace your bath for some $200.


Of course, when you live in Fl like I do, a cooler floor feels nice.
