By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: BathInterior

How much time do you spend in the bathroom each day? Whether it’s where you prep the kids for bed or step away for some alone time, the bathroom is one of the most frequently used rooms in the home. It’s also one of the best areas in which to invest.

Luckily, making upgrades doesn’t have to require a lot of time or money. Follow these simple DIY steps to improve your space on a pocket-friendly budget in just a weekend or less.

Swap your showerhead

Make bath time more enjoyable by replacing your basic builder-grade shower-head with one that’s designed with the whole family in mind. For less than the price of a day at the spa, you can transform your entire shower experience with an In2ition two-in-one shower from Delta Faucet.

The embedded hand shower, which can be used simultaneously or separately from the showerhead, makes it easy to accomplish everyday tasks, such as bathing children or washing pets. Plus, it’s easy to install. The In2ition simply threads onto your existing shower arm — no behind-the-wall work required.

Pick out new paint

Paint is a cost-effective way to transform your room. Pick colors that express the feeling of the space, whether you want it to seem soothing and calm or lively and welcoming. Rich grays and navy blues can serve as a nice neutral in either case when punctuated with colorful accents, like patterned shower curtains and bright soap pumps or toned down with earthy accessories, like bamboo bath mats and beeswax candles.

Change your toilet

If your toilet is outdated, consider switching it out for one that’s more comfortable and efficient. Delta toilets, available at The Home Depot, are offered in round and elongated shapes and come in chair height dimensions for a comfortable fit. Included pre-installed tank-to-bowl connections promote easy installation, making them an affordable weekend update.

With these easy tips, the bathroom you’ve always wanted is just a weekend away.
