A bathroom refresher…Mini-makeovers for the bath – Irvine Real Estate – Irvine Homes for Sale

One of the many euphemisms for bathroom is “the necessary.” That perhaps explains the mindset of many homeowners and why, short of a total remodel, they do very little with the décor and design of their bathrooms over the course of a year. The bathroom might just be the one room that’s easiest to make over and make an impression with—without making a huge impression on your bank account.

“Even if you have a large bathroom, chances are it’s smaller than most rooms in your home,” said Jeremy Vest, owner of DirectBuy of DuPage County. “What that means is that even something as simple as a fresh coat of paint or some wallpaper can make your bathroom look like new.”

Some of the bathroom “touch ups” Vest recommends includes:

Putting a coat of fresh, new paint or textured wallpaper on the walls.
Changing an outdated sink and vanity with a new and beautiful pedestal sink.
Repainting or replacing bathroom cabinets.
Installing new flooring with something timeless like marble mosaics.
Updating and improving lighting with new, energy efficient sconces.

“The beauty of these upgrades is that you don’t need to be Mr. or Ms. Home Improvement to take these projects on and that saves you the cost of hiring someone to do it,” said Vest. “Couple the nominal investment needed for these improvements with the dramatic impact each can have on your bathroom and you’ve got a win-win.”

DirectBuy Club offers home furnishings and merchandise in addition to items for home improvement projects to help all homeowners brighten up their homes all year round—at direct insider prices. DirectBuy also employs product specialists and designers, so if you need some assistance in selecting products or taking on a home improvement project, you have seasoned professionals at your service.
