Easy Bathroom Fixes

Fixing up a bathroom doesn’t need to cost a fortune. Even little fixes here and there can help when it comes time to sell. Here are some quick and easy fixes you can make to help give your bathroom a facelift.

Repaint Walls & Cabinets

Sometimes, a simple change in paint color can make all the difference. It can make the room seem bigger, brighter, and cleaner. If your cabinets are particularly dingy, try a new coat of paint or sanding and refinishing. The easiest way to do this is to detach cabinet doors and remove drawers and paint them in an open space.

Switch Out the Mirror

A simple change of your mirror can give your bathroom a whole new life. Instead of the basic square or rectangle mirror, try a round one or something with a frame that compliments your color scheme. You'd be surprised what a big difference this can make.

Clean Showerhead & Faucet

If the water pressure in your shower or sink seems low, try cleaning it before replacing it. Fill a small bag with vinegar and tie it around the showerhead or faucet. This will help to loosen water deposits that may be slowing down the flow of water.

Replace Hardware

This is a relatively simple and inexpensive fix that can instantly update the look of your bathroom. This is especially important if your bathroom cabinets and drawers don't match.

Fix Broken Tiles

Even if the rest of your bathroom is immaculate, one broken tile can ruin everything. Use a small hammer or chisel to remove the broken tile, making sure to keep the surrounding tile intact. Clean the area before placing a new tile and check if there's an issue that may have caused the tile to break.

Additional Resources

If you need a little extra cash for some home renovation projects, try a home equity line of credit. Like a credit card, you can access funds as you need them at a lower interest rate as compared to a traditional loan.
