When thinking about home improvement projects I think the best are creative ways to improve your bathroom. Bathrooms say a lot about your house, and it if you want to find a home improvement that is relatively cheap that is where you should start. There are many diy bathroom projects to choose from. Today’s post will talk about a few diy bathroom projects that will spruce up your home.
DIY Bathroom Project 1:
Turn your old dresser into a vanity.
Using a hole saw make 1-1/4-inch-diameter faucet opening.
You are going to have to remove any drawers or shelves that will not allow you to get to the piping.
Now you are going attach the drawer faces as false fronts.
Measure the height from the floor to the water supply and drain lines. Using the jigsaw, cut an square in the back of the dresser to fit the pipes.
Next you are going to lightly sand the dresser, and seal it with marine varnish. You are going to use marine varnish because the it will be in a relatively moist environment.
Once the dresser is in place, you are ready to mount the sink and caulk it. Now all you have to do is mount the faucet and reconnect the plumbing.
DIY Bathroom Project II
So let me introduce you to a bit of luxury for yourself and your guest: towel warmers. Oh were you unaware that you could have warm towels when you step out of the shower? Oh, well you most certainly can. There are two types of towel warmers: hydroponic, and electric. They both have their advantages and disadvantages; but I want to talk about the electric one. The electric towel warmer plugs into a standard wall outlet and the models start $100 and can go as high as $800. But the best part about these towel warmers is that you just have to secure it to a wall, and plug it in. The downside is that you have to find a place in your bathroom where you can plug it in. It is something that is very small but will go along way when talking about your home improvement. Also they come with shut off switches so it wont burn your house down.
DIY Bathroom Project III
Revamp and Maximize your storage
This is not an actual project, but typically your storage space is the marker of the old style of your house. The ornamental fixtures on cabinets, the style, and the color are typically the best indicators of a shabby old bathroom. Below I have included a picture of a particularly interesting idea, that uses a combination of coat racks and shelves to give a sleek look to your bathroom.
Home improvement projects do not have to be extravagant or expensive. You just have to be creative, and look around the internet for some good ideas.
