When it comes time to sell your home, you may or may not want to spend the money to renovate.   Bathrooms present a DIY project opportunity for a homeowner that wants to increase the value of their home without spending much money.  There are several ways you can update your bathroom without spending a fortune!

Replace the toilet

Replacing a toilet is not an expensive. Prices fall typically under $400.00 and a new toilet can instantly add a fresh look.

Replace the bathroom countertop

From laminates to single-slab surfaces that include marble, granite and quartz, or other materials like concrete or wood, replacing a countertop is a great bathroom DIY project.

Looking for a super affordable option? Especially when it comes to laminated surfaces, countertops can also be transformed with a couple of coats of paint!

Replace bathroom tile

Believe it or not tiling does not require a high level of skill—these days most tiles come on a mesh background which makes the installation easy and all you have to do is create an easy mix grout and apply!  Tile can be used on both the walls, shower enclosures and countertops.

Add Bead board or wainscoting

When it comes to traditional or country style residences, bead board is extremely popular. While this is typically done using individual planks of wood, one can also create from readymade bead board sheets typically sold in big box stores, all you need is a staple gun and you are ready to go!

Replace Cabinet doors or paint them

Not ready to splurge on new cabinets?  If your cabinets are made out of wood, refinishing them may be a great project for you to take on! All you have to do is sand down the doors, paint them with a primer and add a fresh coat of paint!   If you can afford to replace your cabinets, be sure to shop around for the very best price!

Replace fixtures or towel bars

You’d be surprised how shiny and fresh a bathroom can look with a shiny new faucet or spruced up towel bars.  These items are not only fairly inexpensive, but replacing them is an easy DIY project!

Replace Doors and door handles

Replacing doors and door handles is one of my most affordable tips, not just for the bathroom, but for the whole house!   

Until next time,
