The bathroom is one of the most important rooms in most homes and renovations there can be expensive. They don’t have to be, however. If you are thinking of giving your bathroom a full makeover but are worried about your budget, know that you don’t have to take everything apart. Sometimes, only making one or two modifications can be enough to give your bathroom a whole new look. Let’s take a look at a few simple ways that you could instantly upgrade your bathroom.

Get Onyx Countertops

Adding onyx countertops to your bathroom could dramatically transform its appearance. They might be a bit more expensive than other materials but adding a stunning onyx countertop might be all that’s needed to elevate your bathroom. You could get an onyx countertop from a company like World Stone Group and create a nice solid or mosaic onyx backsplash for greater effect. It won’t take much time to install, and you could pick onyx in a color that will complement your bathroom palette.

Frame the Mirror

Another incredibly simple thing that you could do to instantly improve your bathroom would be to add a frame around the mirror. This will transform your mirror into a great focal point and make the mirror and the whole bathroom look more luxurious. You could get a frame specifically for mirrors, but you could also create one out of reclaimed wood. It all depends on your bathroom’s decor and what type of look you’re trying to achieve.

Add Luxury Vinyl Tile

Have you always dreamed of having a sauna-style bathroom with wooden floors but are worried about it warping because of humidity? Well, know that it’s possible to have floors that look like they are made of wood without all the drawbacks of wooden floors by using luxury vinyl tile. Luxury vinyl tile is made of a base layer of vinyl, a patterned layer on top, and a third transparent layer for protection. You can have virtually any pattern printed on it, including wood, but your floor will be water-resistant. You can also install LVT much more easily than hardwood floors, and if you have the skills, you could complete this project on your own.

Use a Cabinet to Create a Vanity

If you have an antique cabinet layering around in the house and you feel like it would fit well in your bathroom, why not turn it into a vanity? This is another project that you could complete on your own and it’s not as complicated as it seems. All you have to do is find a cabinet that fits your bathroom’s dimensions. Then, cut a hole for the sink on top and create holes in the back for the plumbing. Everything else is just attaching the vanity to the wall and installing the sink on top using adhesives and silicone. 

These are all simple ways anyone can give their bathroom an instant upgrade on a moderate budget. Consider all these options and see which ones would work the best based on your bathroom’s configuration and style.
