The bathroom is one of the rooms where you’re likely to spend a lot of time, for various reasons. I wanted to share with you some easy ways to DIY your bathroom update. If you’ve got left-overs from previous owners or hodgepodge hardware we can take care of that. You want to have a room that you feel relaxed and comfortable in. You also don’t want to be embarrassed when the neighbours or your mum comes over either. There are two really easy things you can do to update your bathroom without having to pay someone to do them for you.

Colours and Paint Job

Once you’ve determined what style you want your bathroom to be, you can start considering what colours would work. It’s very on-trend right now to go with modern, muted colours and sleek lines. Simple is the way to go and if you have a smaller bathroom, you don’t want to risk shrinking the space by using too dark a colour. Painting is something that can easily be done with or without help. Depending on the size of the room and whether or not you want to paint all the walls you can most likely complete this task in a weekend. You need to pick a proper paint that can stand up to the moisture and humidity of a bathroom. You don’t want all your hard work to go to waste.

Faucets and Hardware

Another easy update is the faucets and hardware. If your house hasn’t been updated since the ‘70’s you’ve probably got some ugly brass kicking around that you’d like to be rid of. Chrome and brushed-nickel finishes compliment any style. The modern pieces at MaestroBath suit any bathroom.

While it might seem intimidating, you can change your faucets yourself. You may find you already have the tools to complete the job. There are hundreds of tutorials out there like the one found here. While it may require some elbow-grease, this is something that a regular person can do without professional help. You don’t have to be a plumber or a contractor to do this easy update.

The very essence of DIY is being a little bit handy. Chances are this is not your first DIY project so you should be comfortable handling the variety of tools involved. Being able to put your own sweat, blood and tears into creating something unique allows you to feel a connection with your work. This is the bathroom in your house. You will most likely live there for some time. You want to be proud of the work you have done.

These are simple, no-nonsense DIY projects. Depending on what you choose to accomplish at once you may find that you can get great quality work done without spending an arm and a leg. Most people DIY things because they are trying to save costs. These are two perfect jobs that aren’t overly expensive and a good trail run for the rest of the house.
