- Go Green with Appliance and Materials
We all have to do our part for the environment so if you are swapping out your fixtures like the toilet or sink you should get units that are more environmentally sustainable. The costs of these units may be slightly more than their conventional counterparts but you will save water and resources over the long-term.

- Replacing the Tile in Your Bathroom
A great way to really enhance the look of your bathroom is to install new tiles. This project is not something you should attempt on your own. If the tile is not installed properly it could lead to water seeping into the flooring which leads to huge problems. In this type of situation you should reach out to contractors that specialize in this type of renovation work. When screening the contractors you should check out their past work to make sure they are capable before you make the decision to hire them.
- Paint the Entire Bathroom
One of the best ways to revamp the look and feel of your property is by painting the bathroom. The paint needs to be durable to handle the changes in temperature whenever you take a hot shower. Since there is a large amount of humidity generated, the paint needs to be water/humidity resistant for optimum results. You will need to make sure the paint properly dries before you take a shower or it could smear. Plan the painting around a day when the entire family is out so there is little to no demand for the shower.
- Use a Bathtub Insert
Instead of spending a large sum of cash purchasing a new bathtub which you will require extensive renovations to make room for it you could invest in a bathtub insert. With these inserts the new tub is placed directly over the existing one. This new tub fits seamlessly with your existing one so there is no need for added renovation work. The addition of the new bathtub is a renovation job that is relatively low cost but really enhances the appearance of the bathroom.
By following this outline our bathroom will look great while at the same time saving some money in the process. The sooner you begin these bathroom renovations the happier you will be so start doing your review work now.

No matter how many replacement and upgrade I did with regards to our bathroom, it wouldn’t matter since I have small rowdy kids with me. I think when replacing them, you have to consider the time and as for me, I’ll have ours fixed when they’re a bit older.
