Check out these three ways to improve your bathroom if you’re on a budget so you can sell your home faster (and for more money).
3 Ways to Revitalize Your Bathroom on a Budget
Check out these three simple ways to revitalize your bathroom on a budget – they typically cost less than $100 each:
- Upgrade your faucets
- Invest in new light fixtures
- Refinish your cabinets
Here’s a closer look at each.
Tip #1 to Revitalize Your Bathroom on a Budget: Upgrade Your Faucets
Your favorite home improvement store most likely has a huge selection of new faucets. That means you have ample choices when it’s time to revitalize your bathroom. The best part? In many cases, replacing faucets is a simple, DIY job. Even if you can’t do it yourself, it’s typically affordable to hire a professional contractor to come in and install new faucets.
Look for sleek, modern pieces that can make your space look like it’s been redone. While you are there, consider also looking for new cabinet handles and drawer pulls that match your faucet. Buyers like to see silver and black these days, but if you are not sure what’s right for your space, talk to your real estate agent. They’ll know what’s selling right now.
Tip #2 to Revitalize Your Bathroom on a Budget: Invest in New Light Fixtures
Older light fixtures are easy to spot from a mile away, so it may be time to update yours. Look for fixtures that match your existing hardware (such as your new faucets) and that will fit in your allotted space. Like faucets, new light fixtures are typically easy to install (as long as they don’t require new wiring), but if you don’t want to do it yourself, hiring a contractor is an affordable, easy way to get the job done.
Tip #3 to Revitalize Your Bathroom on a Budget: Refinish Your Cabinets
You don’t have to pull out your cabinets entirely to revitalize your bathroom. In fact, if they’re made from wood, you should be able to refinish them yourself. Simply sand down the wood and choose a new finish. Here’s a pro tip, though: Make sure you remove the doors before refinishing them. If you fail to do so, the results can look sloppy.

Do Bathrooms Really Matter?
Every room in your home matters to prospective buyers. Although the bathroom may not be a deal breaker, it will affect the way prospective buyers feel about your home; that overall impression is what will lead them to (or drive them array from) making an offer. Buyers may not take much notice if you install a new light fixture and new faucets, or if you refinish your cabinets. However, they will notice if your bathroom appears outdated, especially if it appears more outdated than other areas of your home do.
