Some people don't like their current bathroom. Whether it is the size, functionality, tile, shower, tub, etc, they loved the house, and made a compromise on the bathroom. A lot of the time, people choose to remodel their bathroom. This is a great idea! I recommend you talk to a professional you trust to get the job done. Sometimes, a full bathroom remodel is not in the budget. Here are some easy and cost-effective alternatives that can really change up the space:

Deep Clean

  • Throw away all items that you do not currently use
  • Deep clean all grout, and possibly re-caulk areas
  • Wipe down all walls, floor, tub, shower, toilet
  • Wipe down all counter-tops, front/back of doors, inside/outside cabinets, inside/outside drawers

Replace Towels and Rugs

How long have you had your towels and bathroom rugs? Towels/Rugs do not have to be expensive. Changing the color of the towels and rugs can easily change up bathroom.


By repainting the bathroom, it can really spruce up the space. Especially if you apply makeup, the darker the paint color, the more it effects the lighting. Even if you end up end up going with the same color, fresh paint can do wonders.

Replace Light Bulbs

There are different colors of light bulbs that are available now. They range from yellow to blue. By changing the lightbulbs, it can improve brightness in your bathroom.

Replace Mirror

If your mirror is not attached to the wall, then changing the mirror can be a breeze. With so many different style mirrors, this can easily change the theme of your bathroom. If the mirror is attached to the wall, then be careful. It could be more expensive to remove, repair, repaint, and replace. If your bathroom mirror doesn’t have a frame, this could be an easier cost effective way to change the mirror.

Replace Light Fixture

Just like replacing the mirror, changing the light fixture can also create a cohesive theme in the bathroom

Replace Knobs

A detailed way to be creative. You may have to repair and repaint vanity, but that could also spruce up the bathroom as well.

When I found out we were moving to Plano, Texas, I remember looking forward to riding a horse to school and a brand-new pair of cowboy boots! Growing up in Plano prepared me to be competitive, quick, and to have a strong work ethic. I graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas. Axe’em Jacks! That is where my love for East Texas began. The nature, warm smiles, football games, and community values can't be beat! I graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. I was a middle school math teacher in Tyler, Texas. I met my husband, Travis, in Sunday school, and we have been married since September 2016. I love being a REALTOR® in East Texas!
