If your budget is about $100: Get a new shower head or bathtub faucet. Not only will a fresh shower head look better, but it also will improve your bathing experience every single day. If you’re a handy homeowner, you can even install it yourself and save on labor costs. If you have a little extra wiggle room in your budget, splurge on a fancier shower head. You won’t regret it.
Mirrors and lighting are bathroom essentials, but compact powder rooms with awkward angles can make it challenging to comfortably fit both. This warm, contemporary powder room accomplishes both with a streamlined backlit mirror, which pairs well with the warm wood floors, white walls and black counters.
The bathroom shown here, done by Case Remodeling for $30,000 to $35,000, is an example of a midrange bathroom remodel. It features porcelain tile, a his-and-her semicustom vanity, granite countertops and brushed-nickel plumbing fixtures.
Keep it simple. Although the wallpaper isn’t minimal, the pretty window film (used only on the bottom panes to maximize light) definitely leans toward the barely there category. It’s a marriage made in heaven. The unobtrusive window treatment lets the botanical wallpaper shine, while the wallpaper frames the window beautifully, allowing it to be a standout feature too.
