Ways to increase the Value of your Home

Replace the Tub With a Walk-In Shower

If you have a large bathtub that doesn’t get used much, replace it with a walk-in shower. Not only will it look more luxurious, it’s more practical. And a simple, clear glass partition will make the room feel bigger.

Change the Lights

New lighting can give an old room a fresh look. New pendants in front of the mirror will reflect light around the room and make the space brighter. A hanging fixture or chandelier above the tub or in the center of the room can add a spark of personality.

Re-Tile the Shower

Re-tiling a shower is a great way to take a dated bathroom into the 21st century without making any structural changes. You can’t go wrong with classic white subway tile or luxe white marble. On a budget? You may be able to find some bargains at salvage yards or online resale communities such as Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace.

Tile the Walls

Tile isn’t just for the shower. A wall of tile behind the vanity looks super chic, and it’s easy to clean! White subway tile is a timeless choice, but if you want something more trendy, try hexagons for a chic honeycomb look.

Add a Towel Warmer

Even if your bathroom isn’t ultra luxe, a towel warmer can make you feel like it is. Wall-mounted models are easy to install and plug into a standard outlet. It makes a great gift too — buy one for your honey so you can share.

Paint the Vanity

Before you sledgehammer your vanity and cabinets, consider the much easier DIY of painting. A bold color can give a ho-hum vanity a new look. This bright blue vanity looks funky, fresh and unrecognizable from its basic beginnings. Get the how-to, plus check out before-and-after photos from this makeover from our friends at HGTV.

Have Fun With Wallpaper

Wallpaper is making a serious comeback, and a powder room is a great place to play with bold patterns and colors. This trendy black-and-white botanical print adds tons of glam and dresses up a plain sink with basic hardware.

Frame the Mirror

Most bathrooms come with what’s called a builder’s basic mirror. And it’s just that: a plain mirror. If you don’t have the budget to buy and install a new, decorative mirror, frame the one you have. These simple wooden frames in the bathroom above complement the light wood vanity base and are consistent with the modern, Scandinavian-inspired design.

Change the Hardware

Swapping out hardware is one of the easiest and most budget-friendly DIYs around. It’s a great project for rentals when you can’t make any drastic changes to cabinets or walls. And like jewelry, hardware is a great way to make a statement. Contrasting brassy gold and charcoal gray are super trendy colors right now.

DIY Your Own Storage

Instead of buying a basic over-the-toilet hutch, build your own custom storage! This stylish storage ladder has room for toiletries and towels, and the leaning design won’t damage your walls.
