Start With Your Shower

Taking a shower is about more than just cleanliness. It’s a great way to unwind and decompress after a long day. If you find you’re getting a little bored with your shower, it’s time for an upgrade. Want to overhaul your shower without watching your money go down the drain? Go straight to the source and upgrade your shower head.

For under $100, you can get a new Raincan showerhead or a new tub faucet spout that looks great and functions better than older models. It’s like going to a high-end spa without the sticker shock.

Change Up Your Vanity for Cheap

Everyone loves a gorgeous vanity, except your budget. Thankfully, it doesn’t take much to make your existing vanity look vibrant.

Here are three things you can do to change things up:

Repaint it: A new coat of paint works wonders for a vanity. Make sure to get any wooden spots (like the doors and drawers) for the full effect.

Redo the light fixtures: Don’t settle for a dim light fixture. Replacing the bulbs or rearranging the layout is a cost-effective way to make your vanity shine.

Update the little things: If you pay attention to the minor details, you’ll get big results. Change out the doorknobs, pulls, and other hardware elements for a quick and affordable way to remodel.

Does your bathroom vanity need a lot of upgrades? Newer vanities are built with better, longer-lasting materials that protect the environment and offer a larger return on your investment.

Choose Baseboarders® Covers for a Complete Remodel

Does your bathroom include baseboard heating? In a humid environment like the bathroom, your baseboard heater will wear down quickly, bringing your bathroom’s look down with it.

To protect your baseboard heating unit, choose a Baseboarders heater cover.

Baseboarders covers are built better and are better suited for your bathroom’s environment. For a unique rust resistant toughness, they’re:

  • Built with an epoxy-based powder coating
  • Sprayed with a protective finish
  • Meticulously manufactured in North America

They are the perfect addition to your remodeling project.

Make a Stop at the Thrift Shop

Saving money and saving the environment aren’t mutually exclusive. If you’re ready to remodel your bathroom, eliminate waste and excessive spending with a trip to the thrift shop.

Your local thrift store, antique store, or consignment store is an under-the-radar gold mine for things like light bulbs, drawers, cabinets, and much more. Many items can be repainted, repurposed, or used as-is at a price that’s much lower than a large hardware store.

Did you know that thrift shopping can be done online? Platforms like Craigslist, eBay, and even Etsy are great places to look for used goods.

Add More Storage Space

Have too much clutter and not enough space to store it? It’s never a bad time to add more storage space.

Some simple ways to up your bathroom’s storage include:

  • Adding drawer organizers
  • Choosing a shower caddy
  • Installing wall-mounted shelves
  • Leaving your linens on a free-standing linen tower

Still have too much stuff? If it’s something you don’t use, feel free to throw it away, recycle it, or donate it to your local thrift store.

The best bathroom upgrades don’t have to be expensive. Resourceful solutions like Baseboarders® covers will change your bathroom for cheaper than you think.
