Are you thinking about upgrading your bathroom soon?
Updating your bathroom is one of the most effective ways to transform your home. Bathrooms tend to be one of the smallest rooms in the house, so when it comes to renovations, you really have to work creatively and use intelligent solutions to make the most out of your space. Light is also in short supply, so leveraging whatever light source you have will be a priority.
The 2018 U.S. Houzz Bathroom Trends Study found that although aging was a primary factor, homeowners are craving new layouts with over-the-top accessible features. The study also infers it is a great time to remodel as homeowners previously spent $9,000 on renovations but are now spending about $7,000. Most of these costs, of course, go to buying new shower cubicles or similar solutions. Having said that, plenty of people manage to do a quick renovation on a very limited budget.
“Even on a limited budget, you can dramatically improve your bathrooms for both personal use and increase the value of your home. This bathroom renovation guide looks specifically at updates both large and small, with the end goal being to add real value to the price of your home. Even small stuff, like updating the mirror or replacing fixtures can go a long way to giving your bathroom a true wow factor.”
Care to see some of the best ones? Here are some of the most dramatic bathroom renovations of 2018.

One of the easiest solutions when upgrading your bathroom is to stick to a neutral color. That way, the bathroom looks not only elegant, but also saves you the headache of thinking of different color combinations that work together.
Washed to Grey
Don’t have much money to spare? A simple color change plus small furniture upgrades go a long way. Fancy lights, knobs on your drawers and wooden frame around your mirror will do wonders.
Update Tired Cabinets
Another one of the less drastic renovations that involve updates to existing furniture. Painting cabinets and adding new doorknobs can be done in just a few hours and has a dramatic effect on the look of your bathroom. Add a statement mirror and lighting to complete the look.
