remodel and paint your bathroomStep 1.

Start off with interior painting of the room to change the overall appearance. Even if you want to keep it the same color, a fresh coat of paint can make all the difference. Use painter’s tape and you should be able to paint the room yourself while having it still turn out looking professional. Look around online for ideas if you can’t figure out which color or colors you want to use.

Step 2:

Swap out the tiles that you already have for new ones. If you have relatively new tiles, you can skip this step. Otherwise, choose something that fits the style of the room and matches the color of your paint. You can put tiles on the floor, on the walls or anywhere else you would like. Also make sure the tiles are designed to go inside the bathroom. Some don’t do well with moisture. There are a lot of online tutorials that explain how to replace tiles step-by-step.

Step 3:

Re-glaze the bathtub if it’s not looking that great. This is much cheaper than purchasing a new tub and will give off the same exact look! When you re-glaze the tub it will glaze the perfect white color over the porcelain so it looks brand new and clean. This is something you can do yourself, but contractors can do it as well.

Step 4:

Change out any fixtures that are looking old and worn. This is something you can do yourself within only a couple of minutes. As long as you are aware of the price of the fixtures, this can be very affordable. You don’t have to spend a lot to get replacement fixtures for your entire bathroom. Consider the color of your bathroom when you are choosing these so you get something that matches.

Step 5:

Clean out the toilet and clean the rest of the room! This will make the entire space look pristine so it feels good to be in.
