Easy bathroom updates

*this is a sponsored post by maykke

The Salt Lake county parade of homes is happening right now. It is one of my favorite annual traditions with Celsey and Shawn and their families. We love looking at all the homes and getting ideas of things we love and want to do someday. They are much closer to that someday than I am (as in they are building an amazing house right now). Even though I am no where near and may never be anywhere near building a house, the parade still gives me all kinds of fun ideas. One of the easiest and my most favorite places to start is the bathroom. A few small changes can make a world of difference.

Easy Bathroom Upgrades
Bringing your bathroom out of the past and into the present doesn't have to be overwhelming, expensive, or time consuming. Some small bathroom ideas can be completed over the course of a weekend, yet still provide a dynamic new look for your bathroom. Here are 5 helpful bathroom remodeling tips that can transform your bathroom from drab to fab.

Get Your Painting Clothes On
If nothing else, a fresh coat of paint can breathe new life into an old bathroom and is an easy task that can be done by almost anyone. Whether you're completely changing the color scheme of your bathroom, or freshening up old, worn-down paint, you won't find a much easier bathroom update that conveys as much change as a new coat of paint.

New Electrical Outlets and Light switches
Nothing screams "worn out" like old, builder-grade light switches, electrical outlets, and faceplates. As long as you have access to your fuse box or circuit breaker, these drab eyesores can be easily and inexpensively replaced. Like many other bathroom fixtures, electrical outlets, light switches, and faceplates come in a variety of styles, from brushed nickel, to designer woodwork. If you're repainting anyway, take this opportunity to replace these eyesores while the faceplates are off.

Pull the Plug on Your Old Tub
To really make a splash during your bathroom remodel, pull out your old, basic wall-mounted tub and replace it with a modern, sleek freestanding bathtub. For an added sense of elegance, consider a cast iron clawfoot tub to bring out the character in your newly remodeled bathroom.

Upcycle Your Vanity
Modern sinks, such as vessel sinks, are designed to allow you to bring your creative side out during a bathroom remodel. Rather than relying on a manufactured bathroom vanity, hit up local garage stores, flea markets, and thrift stores to find an old dresser or table that can be redecorated and repurposed as your chic new bathroom vanity. Not only will this unique centerpiece steal the show, but it will be a one-of-a-kind piece of bathroom furniture that truly shows off your creative ability and style.

Freshen Up Those Faucets
Installing new bathroom sink faucets is inexpensive and can be completed in just about an hour in many situations. A touch of brushed nickel, or an elegant oil rubbed bronze faucet may just be the finishing touch that you need to tie together your new bathroom remodel.
