Give Your Bathroom in West Palm Beach a Fresh New Look


Your bathroom is one of the most important parts of your home. While it’s not the most prominently featured part of the house, the care, maintenance and look of your bathroom says a lot about your home. It’s not only frequently used by each member of the family, it’s also used by your guests. Start the new year by giving your bathroom a makeover without breaking the bank.

The average bathroom remodeling project costs nearly $10,500.  If you think that’s expensive, you’re not even close. A high-end job could run you a bill of $26,000. But with a little creativity and initiative, you can end up saving a significant amount money and give your bathroom a fresh new look. Your remodeling project can not only save you money, it can also increase the value of your home.

Before starting your project take an inventory of your bathroom and try to figure out how much you want to spend. If you have a small budget, concentrate on making cosmetic changes such as getting a new sink and paint. If your budget is a little more extravagant, add new tile, a bigger shower or a window.  Here are some easy tips.

  • If your budget is small, limit the amount of tile to strictly high impact areas—such as your floor. If you want to use tile, apply it to one side of the wall and paint the remaining areas.
  • Using granite countertops is a popular trend if you have a large budget. But since bathroom countertops are generally smaller than what you would find in a kitchen, purchase a small slab of granite containing imperfections. You’ll save some cash and you’ll still get the great look and solid finish.
  • Repainting your bathroom is one of the best ways to save money while giving it a fresh look. However, it can be a time consuming exercise. Prepare to use patience.  Due to the high humidity and temperature change in your bathroom, try using a high-quality paint with a satin finish.
  • Take the time to update your fixtures. These include lights, sink faucets, towel racks and drawer pulls.
  • Some of the biggest improvements can be subtle. Clean out the grout and add clean lines of caulk around your sink and tub.  Both caulk and grout are inexpensive and easy to use.
  • Instead of replacing your shower or tub, simply have it professionally reclined. But don’t attempt to do the same with sink and shower fixtures.
  • Going green can help you save money on energy and utility costs. Use low-flow toilets, sinks and shower heads.
