What does your bathroom mean to you? Is it an oasis, a place to unwind,
relax and let the cares of the day simply melt away? Or is it just another room
in your house?
If your answer is the latter, then your bathroom isn't doing everything it
could. The good news is, getting your space there doesn't have to break your
bank or signal a months-long remodeling process. The truth is there are plenty
of unique, invigorating ways for you to reinvent your bathroom space - some of
which you can tackle yourself, and all of which can be budget friendly.
So if you're ready to turn your master bathroom from a simple location to a
desired destination, do so with any or all of these five projects.
* Repainting in your image. When it comes to affordable projects that redefine
the look of a room, it's hard to beat a fresh coat of paint. Changing the color
of your bathroom changes the entire appearance, and if you're ready to strap on
some clothes you don't mind destroying, there's no reason you can't tackle this
project yourself. Pick a color that matches your tastes and your space and your
bathroom will take on a whole new feel.
* Get soaking. Remember all that talk about the oasis? It really starts with the
tub. The Sterling Lawson Oval Bath offers beautiful style at an affordable price
with soaking and whirlpool models. The bath can be situated to fit nearly any
bathroom layout, and with a headrest and lumbar support included, as well as six
jets featuring variable control, the Lawson oval bath is your perfect getaway
that doesn't require you to actually get away.
* Fix up the fixtures. A brand-new tub completely redefines your bathroom, and
if you want to bring the rest of your bathroom up-to-date as well, replacing
your existing fixtures with new models is an easy way to do it. From towel racks
to faucets and shower hardware, new fixtures are an effective way to show your
sense of style and bring cohesion to your space while capitalizing on the latest
* Finish the flooring. Your new bathroom deserves to look good from top to
bottom. Pick a flooring style that speaks to you, spoil yourself with heated
floors and rest easy knowing you'll never have to grout again.
* Shed a whole new light. There is perhaps no room where lighting is more
important than the bathroom. If your current bathroom feels more like a cave
than spa, it's time for a major lighting overhaul. Modern fixtures allow you to
use fewer bulbs more efficiently, and installing a dimmer switch gives you the
bright light when you need it without blinding yourself in the morning. Lastly,
this is a great time to replace all of your old bulbs with energy-efficient
options. They'll last as much as 25 times longer, and replacing your most
often-used bulbs can save you as much as $75 per year on your energy bill.
