If you’ve been standing the doorway of your bathroom wondering what you can do to spruce it up without splurging, let eFaucets help you count the ways. Simple changes can make a huge impact.

1. Curved shower rod and fancy shower curtain – A luxe framless glass shower door would be fantastic, but if you don’t have the budget for it, go instead for a double curved shower rod to use one for the shower liner and the outside rod for a fancier fabric shower curtain. Not only does the curved rod actually increase the elbow room inside the tub, but keeping the liner and curtain on separate rods makes cleaning easier, too.

2. Light matters – Replacing a time-worn light with a new fixture can change the entire feel of the bathroom. From a dowdy space with shadows to a brighter space with the flick of a switch!

3. Paint – One of the most inexpensive ways to brighten up and give your bathroom a new personality is paint. At around $25 a gallon (plus supplies), you can give your room a mini-makeover with all the benefits and very little of the pain. Be sure you’re bringing home paint labeled for kitchen and bath; it’s made to stand up to moisture.

4. Tile – Adding tile to the bathroom can be an expensive undertaking if you don’t plan accordingly. For example, if you just don’t have the money to do the entire tub surround, just do the back wall or half-way up each wall around the tub.

5. Jazz up your mirror – Resale shops, both locally owned and larger operations like Goodwill and Salvation Army, usually have a pretty good selection of mirrors at reasonable prices that could hang above your bathroom sink to replace the plain-Jane thing you’ve got up there now. Don’t let having a medicine cabinet stop you! Find a creative storage solution (bins, shelving with baskets) and then patch that hole and cover it with a fabulous new mirror.
