Simple Bathroom Remodeling Ideas

For Stage 1 of our bathroom makeover, we’re
going to start simple. We’ll show you that there’s a lot you can do on a small budget. First, the obvious, the wall color. New paint
can really make a difference in an old bathroom. We love this color…
and it will look great until we completely renovate down the road. If you need to repair the drywall, do it now
before you paint. Cover small holes, with a little patch compound,
let it dry, sand smooth, and touch up with primer.
Learn out how to repair larger holes at Also before you paint, remove any cover plates,
lights, or anything else that might get in the way. Don’t forget to turn off the electric
at the breaker. Make sure the walls are clean and use painter’s
tape and tarps to protect anything that you don’t want painted. Check it out. New paint really makes a big
difference. If you don’t love your vanity you have two
choices, replace it or paint it. Painting is a budget-friendly option
for a new look, and later on we can
replace it as part of our bathroom remodel. After painting, add a finishing touch to your
vanity with new pulls and knobs. All you need is a screwdriver to replace them. You can also give your sink area more personality
by updating your mirror OR revamping your old one with a custom-made
border. Here’s how. Cut some moulding to fit around the mirror
edges and paint all sides, even the back. Lay the moulding on the mirror to check for
fit. Set the pieces aside. Then run a bead of construction adhesive around
the edge of the mirror. Press the pieces into the adhesive and let it dry.
Rehang the mirror and voila. For the shower, a new curtain and curved rod
makes a big difference. And a new showerhead to replace a crusty old
and outdated one can makes a difference not only because it’s going to look better, but
enhance your shower experience. There are lots to choose from at Lowe’s — some
save water, some have massagers, some actually simulate rain, and some even let you stream
music into your shower—how cool is that? New storage cabinets will help keep everything
in your bathroom nice and tidy. If you’re looking to add extra space, try
a tall, skinny cabinet, floating shelves, an over-the-toilet storage cabinet or even
a medicine cabinet. And finally,
some new accessories and some cool art for the wall
and your old bath has a completely new look! You can find out how to make your bathroom
shine by watching other videos in our bath remodel series at

  1. great video. I am renting and sign a contract can't do anything. how could I find a removable white wall paper that I could put on the walls and paint on top. what is it name? do you guys sell it? does it permeate to the main wall? also what's a good glue for this hand towel holder without making for screw and screwing it to the wall.

  2. They should have painted the window frame, as the white frame is too bright for the muted wall paint color.
    Also did they put a protective coat over the painted vanity.
    You will notice that the video says to turn off the electricity after he removes the light fixture. Reverse the steps for safety.
