6 Ways to Update the Look of Your Bathroom Without Doing a Full Reno

Go frameless

Itrsquo;s not cheap to convert an outdated shower to something more updated. Frameless glass will give you the sleek look you want, but be prepared to spend a good thousand bucks for the glass and the installation.

But add frames here

Frames around your mirrors give the space a more finished look. Companies like Mirrormate offer a custom solution that allows you to choose from tons of finishes and have the frame made to the size of your mirror. Of course, you could save a bunch of money by doing it yourself with some molding and a miter saw.

Paint it

You can completely change the look of your bathroom by slathering a fresh coat of paint over tired cabinets. Brush on a couple of coats of white paint over that chipped and dingy dark wood but be sure to fill in those chips first and yoursquo;ll be amazed at how great your space can look.

Add some jewelry

Cabinet hardware can take boring, old cabinets and give them a little sparkle. Donrsquo;t be afraid to go bold or do something a little different. When you go to sell your home, you can always change them out for something more neutral for minimal cost and in a matter of minutes. This template will make installation easy.

Change out the faucets

You dont have to get a whole new vanity to give you space a newish feel. Swapping out old faucets for something a little fancier will give the bathroom a lift. Do yourself a favor and take a picture, and measurements, of the existing faucet to take with you when you go shopping. Ask a salesperson to help you match the size and configuration so you donrsquo;t have to create any new holes in your bathroom countertop during installation.

Get new lighting

Builder grade is builder blah. For as little as about 100 less if you catch a great sale, you could replace your boring light fixture with something thatrsquo;s really illuminating. Itrsquo;s not a top-to-toe reno, but little details like this are sure to make you smile.
