How To Redo A Bathroom
Wondering how to redo a bathroom is something that has crossed most homeowner’s minds. Redoing a bathroom can be as simple as changing the color and theme of a bathroom, which can be done for less money than you may think. With just a few simple but effective changes, you can change the whole look and feel of your bathroom.
To redo a bathroom, you will need:
- Painter's tape
- Shower and window curtains
- Bath mats
- Towel bar
- Toilet paper holder
- Shower curtain hooks
- Adjustable wrench
- Plumber's tape
- Preparation. Before you begin, remove everything that is being replaced during the redo out of the bathroom. Tape off everything that is not going to be painted and lay plastic on the floor to save you the extra clean-up later.
- The redo. Begin by painting your bathroom first. You may want to start with a coat of primer, depending on the original color of your bathroom. Once the painting is complete and dry, you will want to install the new faucets, towel bars and toilet paper holder. Use the plumber’s tape on the treads of the water lines to prevent leaking while installing the faucet. Turn on water lines and test for leaks. To install the towel bar and toilet paper holder, install mounting brackets on the wall. Use the level to make sure they are level. Attach the towel bar and toilet paper holder using the supplied screws from the manufacturer. After you finish, move on to the new shower curtain hooks, window and shower curtains, and bath mats.
- Clean up. Although there shouldn’t be much clean-up in this budget-friendly redo, you may need to do a little. Check for paint spills or smears. Wipe down the new faucets and clean out the sink and bathtub. This low-cost bathroom redo had easy preparation, was light on the budget, and has little or no clean-up involved.
