How to spruce up your bathroom on a tight budget.
Q – We had planned on updating our bathroom just as the economy turned. Now we are even tireder (if that's a word) of our old bathroom but have considerably less money.
What can we do?

A – You can make many changes to your bathroom for minimal dollars.
For instance, for less than $75 you can upgrade your shower curtain and curtain rings.
For another $100’ish you can get a nicer shower head – look for one with adjustable spray setting including massage.
For under $200 add a towel warmer to your list. There are many different styles to choose from, make sure yours is UL listed.
Another $200 will allow you to make over the lighting while a $30’ish investment can net you a new toilet seat.
There you go – for $600 you can change the look and feel of your shower, the lighting, and your toilet. You can install all of the items yourself and have a new look to your bathroom in no time.
Have a little more money and ambition? New paint can be had for $25 - $50 a gallon and for $50 you can upgrade your towels and hang some new plush towels on your heated towel rack.
For less than $750 you can do quite a job making your bathroom look and feel better.
Get on it!
