    Do-It-Yourself: Weekend Bathroom Upgrades

    If you’re an avid do-it-yourself-er, you’re probably always looking for a fun weekend project. From crafty upcycles to simple home renovations, there’s always something that could use a bit of a refresh. When you spend your weekends working on home-improvement projects here and there, you may be ready to take on a bigger project!

    Upgrading your bathroom is a perfect weekend-long project. Even if your design plan is simple, getting it right might take a little longer than one day. Here are some simple DIY projects to give your bathroom new life – in just one weekend!

    1. A Vanity Replacement

    There’s no better way to overhaul the look of your bathroom than to swap out your old vanity for something new. A new vanity can be purchased at your local hardware store – sometimes for as little at $200. If you do decide to replace your vanity, you should be at least a little familiar with plumbing. You’ll need to disconnect your old vanity, and then reconnect the new one to the plumbing. But if you’re not comfortable hooking a new vanity up, then it’s best to look for plumbers in Lancaster, PA that can help.

    2. Add a Coat of Paint

    A fresh coat of paint has a way of transforming just about any space. There’s no exception here for your bathroom. Choosing an airy paint color can turn your tired space into a dreamy spa getaway. A bold paint color can turn your bathroom into a sunny space. If you’re not comfortable with your plumbing skills to replace a vanity yourself, simply paint your old one! People even go as far to paint their outdated floors for a brand new look!

    3. Swap your Fixtures

    If you’re taking the time to add a new vanity, or just paint the one you have, it’s also a good idea to update your fixtures. Replacing worn-out fixtures really helps to modernize your space. The sky is the limit when it comes to your drawer pulls or towel hangers – you can choose to go with a more modern clean look, or keep it classy with vintage design. No matter what your style is, simply swapping your fixtures is an excellent way to communicate it.

    4. A Touch of Trim

    Nothing says “sophistication” like trim. From crown molding to wainscoting, a little visual interest on your walls really upgrades the space. You’d also be surprised at how different a cabinet door can look when you add a little trim to the outer edges. All you need is a little skill with some nails or wood glue, and you can add trim yourself. A fresh coat of paint to make the trim stand-out will complete the look!

    5. Re-do Décor

    You don’t want to spend a whole weekend updating your bathroom just to move your old decorations back in. This could create a serious mismatch in styles, making all your hard work feel less successful. A bathroom refresh is the perfect opportunity to update your style too. Investing in a new shower curtain, rug, towels, and accessories will help match your newly upgraded space. This is where you can really exercise your creativity to create a space that matches your life and your personality!

    You don’t need a huge budget, a lot of time, or years of experience to upgrade your bathroom. A weekend is really all you need to add some new paint and fresh finishes. Next time you have house guests, they won’t believe it only took you a weekend to transform your bathroom!
