Your home is your biggest asset and maintaining and increasing its value is important. This is the time of year when many people tackle home improvement projects. Bathrooms are high on the list of projects homeowners want to complete.

If you are thinking of selling your home, a bathroom upgrade is an improvement that will more than pay for itself by increasing the resale value of your home. If you plan to stay in your home, a bathroom update is a project that takes a small amount of time and money to make a big improvement to your space.

Here are four design ideas that can help you create a beautiful new look for your bathroom without breaking the bank.


Using mirrors makes a small space seem larger. Interesting shapes are on trend right now. Curvy asymmetrical mirrors on a plain wall, octagonal mirrors set into a tile wall or free hanging mirrors mounted from the ceiling all add depth to the room.


Gold fixtures, a gold framed mirror, gold hardware or even gold flecked wallpaper or a gold flecked vanity top will add a touch of elegance to your bathroom. This is especially nice in a guest bath or powder room.

Don’t Forget the Ceiling

Painting or wallpapering the ceiling can add a unique dimension to the room. Paint or wallpaper in a lighter color and then paint the ceiling in a deeper tone of the wall color. It’s a stunning look.

Bring in Nature

If your bathroom has lots of light and windows, adding wood and green plants will give your room a comforting, spa-like feel. Adding a small section of light-toned shiplap to a wall and vanity cabinets in the same finish will bring the look together.
