5 Cheap Decor Ideas to Brighten up Your Bathroom

Due to their size and the amount of work it can take to renovate them, bathrooms can be one of the least favorite rooms in the house for many people. However, there are little things you can add to instantly improve the look of this space. Instead of ripping out the tub or repainting, consider the following decor items for a much-needed boost.

Pick a Plant

A plant that can stand the heat of your bathroom is an instant way to add a new and natural element to an old, underappreciated space. With the addition of a deep, rich tone of green that will provide a pleasant scent and a unique shape, this is an instant, economical pick-me-up.

Add A Candle (Or Two)

Given the lovely scent that emanates from them and the dose of added color, candles can instantly change the appearance of a dram bathroom space. By adding one or two atop the toilet or on a cabinet, your bathroom will be a little closer to the spa experience.

Splurge On Fancy Bottles

If you’re a fan of beauty and bath products, there’s a good chance that you like to stock up on items like bath bubbles and shampoos; fortunately, items like these can make for a space that’s instantly appealing. The next time you’re at the drugstore, splurge on some beautifully packaged duds for some unexpected sophistication.

Replace Your Old Mirror

It may not seem like a mirror switch out will make much of a difference, but swapping out this stale household staple for a funkier version can completely change your bathroom. Whether you buy a new mirror with a funky frame or paint your old one a bold color, this will instantly revive the entire room.

Buy Some Colorful Towels

It may be a simple fix-up, but having a set of old towels hanging around can instantly downgrade the look of your bathroom. If your bathroom is a neutral color and you’re looking for a little dress-up, accenting with a set of colorful towels will instantly switch up the mood.

From the tiles to the tub, the idea of renovating a bathroom can seem like a huge undertaking, but there are little decor items you can add that will really change its look. If you’re renovating your bathroom and are preparing to put your home on the market, contact me for more information.

3 Inexpensive Renovations That Boost Home Resale Values

To get top dollar for your home, renovations may be necessary. However, some renovations can prove costly and they don’t always add value to your home. Here are three inexpensive renovations that are sure to improve the resale value of your home.

First Impressions Matter

Your home needs to have curb appeal. If the potential buyer doesn’t see that, it will be difficult to get the price you want. Spend money and time landscaping your yard. Pressure wash your driveway. Paint your front door. Make your porch look welcoming. If you do all of this yourself or with the help of family and friends, the costs will be reasonable.

After a prospective buyer is impressed by your nicely kept lawn, you will want to continue impressing them with your interior design. Buyers know what they want when it comes to the number of bedrooms and bathrooms. You have something they want, or else they wouldn’t be looking at your home. Now, you need to keep their attention.

Freshening Up the Interior

Each room should be freshly painted in a neutral color. Old wallpaper and borders should be stripped and walls repainted.

Make each room look larger by clearing any clutter. If possible, remove any unnecessary furniture and store it somewhere else. Have any carpets professionally cleaned, and be sure to polish any hardwood flooring. In the bedrooms, de-clutter your closets.

Your kitchen and bathrooms should be sparkling. Clean and organize counters and cabinets. Again, most of these suggestions cost little but add great value to your home.

Upgrades

When you think of upgrades, you may automatically assume major costs with little return. However, many upgrades may be within your budget. Consider making some of these affordable upgrades to your home.

Living Areas & Family Rooms – If you’re going for a more elegant touch, add some crown molding. For a more rustic feel, add box beams. Improving the ceilings of main rooms will add value to your home.

Hardware and Fixtures – Painting and changing the hardware on your cabinet doors can change the look of a room dramatically. Add new fixtures such as lighting and doorknobs for a more updated look.

Selling your home may require you to spend a little money, but you’ll likely get the full value of your home. Get in touch with me today if you want to discuss the accurate value of your home.
