Here are ten ways to upgrade the look and feel of your bathroom with the help of a professional contractor.

Quick Hits

There are steps that a homeowner can employ to immediately improve the look and feel of a bathroom that don’t require a lot of cash or a full remodel.

1. Update light fixtures and frame a mirror
2. Fix dripping or leaky faucets
3. Replace a shower head to improve water pressure
4. Paint walls, install wainscoting or both

All of these projects deliver value without a lot of cost or effort. A plumbing contractor or bathroom remodeling specialist can often enact these repairs and upgrades in a short amount of time.

Hardware Upgrades

If it’s been some time since the hardware and plumbing in a bathroom has been replaced or upgraded there’s little that a homeowner can do cosmetically that will hide the age of a bathroom’s fixtures. Replacement becomes inevitable after a certain point in time.

5. Replace a toilet with a low-flow or more modern model
6. Fix or replace plumbing in walls to prevent or alleviate leaks and water damage
7. Install new faucets and modern shower heads

8. Upgrade tile and counter-tops
9. Install new vanities, sinks, and faucets
10. Add another sink or even increase the size of a bathroom
