Summer has arrived — the time when many homeowners make plans to roll up their sleeves and take care of those long-awaited upgrades and remodels. If your bathroom is on your summer target list, here are a few key upgrades than can deliver a significant bang for your buck.
Countertops. Updated countertops can make a tremendous impact. You will want to look for natural stone, engineered quartz or the ever popular Carrera or Calcutta marble for a more modern look. If your budget is more limited, painting your countertops is now a very viable option. Plan a visit to your local home improvement store and they can get you on the right path. Either way, neutral colors are a good option.
Lighting. Modern lighting can make all the difference in your bathroom. If sophisticated is what you’re after, LED sconces and bathroom bars can deliver. If you’re more traditional, there’s plenty of lighting options to choose from on the market today, so take an afternoon and enjoy perusing your local stores.
Fixtures and faucets. Faucets can often make or break a good looking bathroom. Get rid of your bone and brass and install nickel, chrome or white fixtures to achieve a more up-to-date look. If you’re not comfortable installing these, call a professional like Go Green Plumbing and they will be glad to help.
Remove carpet. While it can be nice to step out from your shower onto nice soft carpeted floor, it’s also a prime spot for mold and bacteria to grow. Purchase a few nice, fluffy bath mats that you can wash instead. Next, replace the carpet with a tile–or laminate that resembles tile or hardwood.
Bathroom Cabinets. Whether it’s a coat of paint, refacing or total replacement, new bathroom cabinets can transform a frumpy bathroom into something special. As far as color choices go, neutral is always a good call.
