Renew and redo your bathroom

(NC)—Bathrooms are often one of the last rooms to get updated in a house. If wall-to-wall shag carpeting with a matching toilet and squeaky faucet best describe your bathroom, it may be time to give it a facelift. Whether you are looking for a complete overhaul or just some decorative do-it-yourself updates, the below ideas provided by The Home Depot Canada are sure to help:

Combine style with function: Replacing a bathroom vanity is an easy way to dramatically change the space – just remember it can also fulfill any storage needs. Whether your style is contemporary or shabby chic, The Martha Stewart Living line, available at The Home Depot, offers a wide range of stylish options with ample storage space too.

Make a splash: Updating a bathroom's backsplash is an inexpensive and easy way to add a punch of style to this often drab space. Easy-to-use backsplash panels can be installed over existing tiles using adhesive or double sided tape.

Fancy a faucet: Installing a high efficiency bathroom faucet can reduce water usage by up to 30 per cent which is not only a smart environmental choice, but will save on water bills too. Standard faucets use 2.2 gallons of water per minute while high efficiency faucets, such as the American Standard cadet faucet, can use as little as 1.5, without affecting performance.

Brighten the bathroom: A splash of paint can take a bathroom from drab to fab. Make existing white fixtures pop with rich blue walls or complement dark cabinetry with a stylish shade of light gray. When selecting paint for a bathroom, consider options that are moisture and mildew resistant. These high performing paints will last the test of time.
