Simple ways to give your bathroom a new look and feel




 

 

According to the “Remodeling” magazine’s 2011-12 “Cost vs. Value Report,” which compares the average cost for 35 popular remodeling projects with the value those projects retain at resale, homeowners can expect to spend upward of $52,000 on an upscale bathroom remodel. That makes a bathroom remodel one of the more expensive home improvement projects a homeowner can undertake.

Install a new shower. One of the best ways to give a bathroom a new look is to replace the traditional tub and showerhead with a bigger, more airy shower. Instead of the tub and slide glass, choose a hinged door with heavier glass, replacing the bathtub entirely.

Add windows and a skylight. Many bathrooms, particularly those in older homes, sorely lack adequate lighting. Adding some extra windows and a skylight can give a bathroom an entirely new look, even if you don’t replace any of the existing features or fixtures.

Replace old tiles. Many homeowners cite their bathroom’s tiles as the feature they would most like to change.
