Perhaps you recently moved into a new home and want to update your current bathroom, or you've been living in your place for a while and dream of taking on a fresh remodeling project.

Continue reading to discover seven ways to bring your improvement dreams to life—while staying on-budget.

1. Fresh Coat of Paint

A new coat of paint can work wonders on any room and is an easy home improvement project to complete. Perhaps you've moved into a new home and are tired of looking at eggshell walls, and would prefer to incorporate a variety of colors into your space. Or maybe the palette you thought was in style ten years ago is now no longer in vogue, and you're looking for a change.

Pro Painting Tips:

  • If you're planning to sell in a few years, avoid lots of color, like blue walls, and choose neutrals instead—like beige, gray, cream or white.

  • Instead of painting the entire room, choose a feature wall. A great option is painting the wall where your vanity is to truly make it pop and draw the eye to the main focal point of the room.

  • Use a color wheel to pick what looks the best together. Usually, colors that are either beside each other or opposites look best. For instance, green and orange or yellow and blue.

  • Scroll through online resources like Pinterest and Instagram for design inspiration to help bring your dream bathroom to life.

2. Update Old Faucets & Light Fixtures

Little details can make a big difference in any space. Often in new builds, the faucets are not the highest quality. While they serve a purpose, you may want to eventually buy new ones that are built to last and are more in-line with your personal tastes.

The same goes for your light fixtures. While certain amenities, like a bathroom vent that starts-up as you switch the light on, are necessary, there is still plenty of room to play with the lighting in your bathroom. Even changing up the lights can illuminate the room better, improving its aesthetic and your ability to complete tasks like shaving, styling your hair or applying makeup.

3. Refinish Storage Cabinets

Some bathroom projects are more labor-intensive than others, and rather than installing brand-new cabinets, there is an alternative. If the interior of your cabinets are still in good condition, why not refinish them instead?

How to Refinish Your Cabinets:

  • Paint: One of the easiest ways to transform any cabinet material is with paint. Spruce up your storage and get creative!

  • Stain: If you have wood cabinets, you can apply a different color of stain to give them a new lease on life.

  • Reface: While maintaining the structural integrity of your cabinets, why not swap out the doors alone? This saves you the hassle of paint/stain while giving your cabinets an entirely new appearance.

Although this may seem like a daunting home improvement project, it's actually very easy with the help of our expert team. We'll sand, stain and varnish—or sand and paint—your cabinets according to whatever you have in mind. Also, these tips can be used to update your kitchen cabinets!

4. Replace Old Grout

Did you know that even swapping out the old grout in your bathroom or kitchen can make your old backsplash look like new? Your bathroom gets a lot of use, so it's normal for the grout to get stained, dirty or even start to fall apart. There may be nothing wrong with your tiles, but dingy grout could make them look unattractive. Our team will skillfully replace your old grout while maintaining the integrity of your original tiles.

Home Improvement Tip:

If you have white tiles with white grout, consider replacing the white grout with a dark gray! This is a very modern and chic look that will make your tiles pop—while also showing fewer stains.

5. Lay Fresh Caulk

Re-doing your grout isn't the only way to give your bathroom a boost! Caulk (which usually is placed between your tub and the wall) tends to only last about five years—possibly less. After a while it will start to peel, be covered in stains, or possibly even start to get moldy. Pulling out the old caulk and replacing it is an easy home improvement project that will protect your home from water damage—while updating your bathroom’s aesthetic.

6. Install a New Vanity

Given its central role of any bathroom, installing a new vanity is a sure way to transform the space from drab to fab. Since vanity's can often be heavy and cumbersome, it's best to hire a professional service to install it correctly. That way, you avoid the risk of damage and can honor any warranty the vanity might have. The experts at Mr. Handyman of E. Boulder, Broomfield and Erie are more than happy to help install a new vanity. We'll approach the task with the same dedication we show while completing any other home improvement task.

Home Improvement Tip:

Place your vanity mirror opposite a window to make the most of available natural light. The mirror will reflect the natural light back into your space, illuminating it without the need of additional lighting. This is not only cost-effective, but more energy efficient as well.

7. Change Your Tile

Granted, retiling your bathroom is a bigger bathroom remodeling job—but one that can be easily handled by the experts at Mr. Handyman! Our team has years of experience working on a range of home improvements, including tiling. Whether you want your floors redone or the shower backsplash to be updated, we've got it covered.

Home Improvement Tip:

Ceramic and porcelain tiles are man-made, but are incredibly strong and durable. Available in an array of colors, these materials are more cost-effective than stone tiles.
