Hooray, the kitchen is done! Good work. Now you can sit back, relax and enjoy everything that your new home has to offer. Until you have to go to the bathroom, that is…
What a nightmare!
Don’t flush your peace of mind down the toilet, because there is hope. With an array of easily-accomplished little DIY projects at your fingertips, you and your partner can get the powder room looking great on the cheap! Let’s go over a few ideas that we think will make the bathroom look like a million bucks, without costing nearly that much:
A little lighting goes a long way, and if you do it right you’ll be oohing and aahing at your beautiful self in the mirror all day. But before you get caught up in a Narcissus type of situation, why don’t we get some lights installed. LEDs are all the rage these days because they shine bright and last virtually forever. Find a salvaged chandelier, hang it from the ceiling and voila! A gorgeous, brightly lit bathroom space. Also consider new lights surrounding the mirror.
Whether your vibe is shabby chic or distinguished classic, installing a bathroom vanity for your sink, counter and storage space is a fantastic idea. They’re relatively affordable, and as your go-to marble and granite installers, we’ll take care of its countertop!

With a few two-by-fours, some varnish and right angle mounting brackets, you can install great looking shelves on your bathroom walls for way less than $100. Plus, they’ll look great!
