How I can refresh an old bathroom

The bathroom is one of the most important parts of the household, which needs to be neatly maintained on a daily basis. The bathrooms designed in the earlier years were certainly self-sufficient but a few additions and a little bit of remodeling, would help you refresh the look of the washroom. Small changes can be made to the existing bath by changing the old fittings and fixtures. If you feel that there is enough storage in your bathroom and you want to retain the cabinets due to their good condition then you could opt for changing the frames of the cabinet.

You could also opt to change the lighting of your washroom and add some bright designer lights to add some color and light to the bath. You could also change the tiles of the counters near the washbasin. By adding new tiles on the counters, the bathroom would instantly get a facelift. The trick would be to add a facelift to your old bathroom at an affordable rate. For this, the best option would be to enhance the old fittings and fixtures rather than replace them completely.

Painting is another idea to refresh your old bathroom. You could play around with colors and give the walls and flooring of the wash area a new coat of paint. The new paint would not only cover the old stains and cracks but also make the place look hygienic and sparkling. If you were a little bold kind and love to experiment then an addition of some unique wallpaper to your bathroom walls would enhance the look of the bathroom. In case you are the creative kind then you could make your own customized wallpaper by creating a collage of old magazines and sticking them together on the wall.

By making these few small changes to your old and existing washroom, you could make the bathroom look exotic and special.{pics from apt}.
