You may want to keep it in the same general theme as the rest of the house.However, the bathroom is the one place you can show some personality when you eventually sell your home.Have some fun by choosing a wild wallpaper or try an interesting paint technique.
Once you’ve identified the bathroom and the theme, set a budget and make a list of what you need to buy and where you will get it from.
Painting the interior can lift the mood of your house and it’s inexpensive if you’re willing to do the work.
If your budget allows, tackle walls yourself and get professionals in to do the ceilings, as these can be hard going on the neck.
You might be able to get away with giving skirting boards, doors and window and door frames a good clean with sugar soap or a natural alternative such as washing soda.
We love weekend projects that can help improve the value of your home, not to mention your enjoyment of it!
In this installment of “Weekend Transformations,” we will be focusing on how you can update your bathrooms quickly and inexpensively by yourself.
Updating a bathroom is a terrific weekend project that adds real value to your home.
To start, pick the bathroom you are interested in updating (if it’s your first time, maybe stick with the smallest one) and decide what mood you would like to evoke.
If you’re taking the DIY approach, tackle one room at a time.
Choose a warm, dry day to start, move all of your furniture into the middle of the room and do the first coat in the morning.
As most paint needs only a few hours between coats, you can do the second later in the day and have the room finished by the evening.
