Have you ever wondered how long you spend in the bathroom over the course of a lifetime? The answer, according to a survey by News.Scotsman.com, is one and a half years. With that much focus on bathroom activities, it’s no wonder that bathroom remodeling tops many people’s wish lists.

Bathroom Remodeling Can Boost Resale Value

Bathroom remodeling also can help boost resale value and make your space more enjoyable while you live there. According to Buzzle.com, many bathrooms stay old and dingy because they are tucked away and home owners don’t focus on them. Isn’t it time to do some remodeling for you and focus on the spaces that you use every day?

If you’re looking for a few easy ways to spruce up your bathroom, consider:

  • Adding an acrylic liner. This is one remodeling project that you can complete quickly–usually within two days. It’s also inexpensive because you save the expense of demolition, removal, and buying a new tub. The same goes for bathtub reglazing, which you can have done in about 4 hours. Either remodeling project can help boost your resale value.
  • Replacing the sink and faucet. A quick remodeling project that means no more dripping faucet and dingy sink.
  • Add plants. House plants can hide unsightly areas, such as chipped tile. Here are more quick bathroom remodeling tips.
  • Paint. Paint. Paint. It’s hard to think about quick fixes without adding in a gallon of paint. Try a bold color or a blue sky theme on the wall. Have a little fun.

There are many ways to transform a dingy bathroom. Grab some paint. Buy a sink and faucet. Revamp the tub. Then drag in the house plants to cover the chipped tile. Voila. A new bathroom!

    Cheap acrylic tub liners can be problematic, if you don’t want to replace the your tub/shower then pay for a custom acrylic liner that fits.

    I have just completed painting the bathroom and don’t want to repeat the decorative border. I have heard stencils can look great. This seems like it could get messy. Any tips?

    Allison, thanks for those thrifty tips! Another one is replacing the toilet, especially if you are using an older one. New toilets can save water and money over the long-run.
