Update Your Bathroom This Weekend

With the real estate market in full spring, many people are looking at how they can update their home.  We sat with our in house stager Samantha to give you a quick list on how to updated your bathroom this weekend!  Check our a recent update from a client that followed her suggestions.  This bathroom is dated and screams builder grade in the before photo.  With simple updates to lighting, fixtures and hardware this bathroom has come to life.  The original cabinets were painted as well as the bathroom walls.  It is now light and bright.

Here is our list of 10 tips to update your space this weekend:

  • Paint your vanity cabinets and upgrade the hardware instead of replacing the whole vanity.
  • If you have construction grade hardware & fixtures, update them to a more contemporary, higher quality design.
  • Paint! Dated paint colors can leave a bathroom feeling stale and tired. Alternatively, try avoiding using medium paint shades. Using light or dark colors gives a small bathroom more contrast and depth.
  • New towels can make a huge difference in overall appearance. Make sure you’re not displaying towels that are obviously worn or frayed.
  • A piece of stylish wall art goes a long way to provide an updated look.
  • I also like using a modern glass soap dispenser instead of the plastic ones. HomeGoods usually has a good selection of the brown glass hand soaps.
  • Upgrading light fixtures can make a huge improvement to the overall mood.
  • If you have an old or dated mirror, replacing it can add instant style or neutrality.
  • When making upgrades, to bathrooms or just in general, you always want to keep in mind the goal is to have a cohesive mood. Make sure if you’re only replacing a few fixtures and leaving the existing, all of the elements in the room are harmonious in mood, scale, quality, and color.
  • To take it one step further, here’s a link to inexpensive flooring upgrades for all the DIY people out there:
