If you’re having company over for the holidays, no doubt you’re also cleaning your house from top to bottom, and even thinking about doing some light remodeling. If you plan ahead, it is possible to redo parts of your home, including the bathroom. The guest bathroom is a popular room to remodel right before the holidays (probably because it’s the one room in the house that receives the most amount of traffic when holiday guests visit). No one wants their guests to see an out-dated or dilapidated bathroom. So, right before the holidays hit, many households undergo a bathroom remodel.
The bathroom can be a simple OR enormous remodeling job. If you scrap everything, it’s going to take a while to remodel. But, if you just want to spruce things up a bit, your remodeling job can be quite easy. Here are some quick bathroom remodeling tips you can do before the holidays.
Giving your bathroom a new coat of paint is a great way to liven up the style of your bathroom. Changing the color or at least retouching the current color will help your bathroom shine. Over the years, your paint can dull, chip, and even stain. A fresh layer of paint will give your bathroom a new look. However, if you plan on changing the color completely, keep in mind that you may also need to replace a few bathroom fixtures if you want everything to match.
A Mirror or Two
It’s no surprise that a bathroom mirror can add depth and illumination to your bathroom. By strategically placing a mirror on the wall, you can drastically change the mood and appearance of your room. However, you want to be careful that you don’t select a mirror that overpowers your décor. Some bathroom mirrors have ornate frames, so be sure to match the frame with the color and style of your bathroom.
A New Faucet
Installing a new bathroom sink and/or vanity might be a bit too much right before the holidays, but installing a new faucet isn’t. In fact, a new contemporary bathroom faucet might just be the thing your bathroom needs. Your faucet get’s a lot of use. Eventually, it’s tarnished, chipped, and covered with water stains. Today, bathroom faucets come in many different shapes, sizes, and designs; so you have a large assortment to select from. And installation is a lot easier than installing a new sink and vanity. Just make sure you select a faucet that has the same configuration as your current one. If not, you might need to make a few extra holes in your counter top, which adds time and work. Consult a plumber/home improvement specialist for details.
The holidays are a joyous time. But they can also be a bit stressful. Don’t add to your stress by trying to redo your entire bathroom. Do a quick remodel by adding some paint, a mirror or two, and even possibly replacing that out-dated faucet.
