Updating your bathroom doesn’t have to be a pricey project. There are various ways to refresh a tired looking bathroom on a budget. Here are a few simple and inexpensive bathroom makeover ideas that will add value to your home without breaking the bank:
- De-Clutter – Your bathroom will look cleaner and larger if you remove clutter. Throw out anything that’s expired and place items you rarely use in drawers.
- Simple Spa – Create a room you can unwind in by rolling up plush towels in wicker baskets and adding some aromatic candles to create a natural, spa like atmosphere.
- Upcycling – Add some creative charm with reclaimed wood and revamped furniture. An old wooden ladder for example makes a great towel holder.
- Tropical Paradise – Breathe some life into your bathroom by adding a few plants. It’ll create an oasis like feel and they’ll love the humidity. Consider a hanging basket if space is tight.
- Accessorize – It’s easy to make an impact with small details so add some pizzazz by updating the shower curtain, drawer handles and towel racks.
It’s easy to update your bathroom without committing to a full on renovation and hopefully the ideas above will help inspire you. Don’t forget about the power of paint coupled with a beautiful, unique piece of art as this is another powerful yet simple way to freshen up a blah bathroom! Let me help you sell your Port Elgin or Southampton home.
Buying a home can be emotional, especially if it’s love at first sight!
Imagine that you’ve finally found your Port Elgin or Southampton dream home and you’re feeling on top of the world!
Now think how you’d feel once you’re all moved in only to discover it’s nothing but a money pit. Hidden surprises are the last thing you want to deal with.
It’s easy to overlook potential problems when you find a home you love as you tend to focus all your attention on the positive features.
Your mind’s made up and you just want to put in an offer as quickly as possible so you don’t lose it to another buyer. However, taking the time to have the home professionally inspected will help you see the full picture.
Home inspections help identify both existing and future problems. There’s no such thing as a perfect house so don’t be alarmed when minor issues arise. Look at it more as a valuable learning experience as most inspectors will discuss the home’s systems and offer advice on how they should be maintained.
Home inspections aren’t just for buyers. Sellers often have inspections completed before they put their property on the market so they’re not caught off guard and forced into a vulnerable position. Knowing your product is key when it comes to sales so it’s important to be fully aware of any existing problems beforehand so they can be dealt with accordingly.
Not everyone chooses to have a home inspection but if you want to avoid buying a home riddled with problems, it’s a worthwhile investment. Choose a certified home inspector who comes highly recommended and ensure the cost includes a written report. The knowledge and peace of mind you’ll gain is well worth the expense.
