1. Painting is cheap and easy. It can give you a new look, a fresh feel and make it look new again.
2. The cabinets can be painted, stained or faux finished. New handles can help update those old, tired cabinets. Since you won't need many handles, it doesn't cost lots of money.
3. New curtains, rugs and towel fixtures can help as well.
I have posted plenty of tips on all these ideas in the past so you can always scan through the archives and check things out. A while ago I took a good look at my bathroom on the main floor. It had recently been painted and I had refinished all the cabinets and the floor was still in good shape, but it needed something. Perhaps a new faucet? Yes, indeed, that is what it needed. The old one was a cheap, contractor grade faucet. I enlisted some help from my brother in law and picked out a new one at Home Depot. I've had him help me before replacing faucets, and I must admit that I'm getting better at it by watching and helping. Actually I have found that taking out the original is hardest part!
But, it needed something else. Maybe some artwork? Sink jewelry?
Here is a shot of the completed sink. I know what you may be thinking.....is it hard to clean? No, it really isn't. I use a large soft brush and wipe. No problem.
I feel like the bathroom is truly updated now. Painted walls, cabinets, a wood frame around the plain mirror, new faucet and some sink jewelry. People who visit always comment on the design, like they've never seen anything like......maybe they haven't.
