As the weather starts to get colder, you may be spending more time indoors – and you may have noticed that your bathroom is not as blissful or relaxing as it could be.
If you find yourself in this situation and you are ready for a new project this fall/winter, here are some things to consider doing to renovate your bathroom to make it more relaxing and restorative.
Make Your Bathroom More Relaxing & Enjoyable By…
Getting the tub refinished – Is your tub too old, damaged or dirty to bathe in? If so, this is the first place to start when you want to improve the comfort of your bathroom. By refinishing your tub, you can get rid of all of the unsightly damage, essentially giving you the look and feel of a new tub, but for way less than a new tub would cost.
- Investing in an all-in-one tub caddy – Now that you can bathe in your tub again (because it’s been refinished), invest in a tub caddy that can hold soap, a book and even a glass of wine as you soak in your new tub! This is truly one of the most blissful ways to enjoy and relax in your bathroom – and a caddy makes it easy to do so with some extra luxuries.
- Getting some no-slip grips – Part of a heavenly bathroom experience is eliminating the dangers of slipping and falling as you bathe. So, for stress-free entrance into/exit out of the tub, consider getting some no-slip grips to add to the walls outside of your shower/tub. If you have an elderly person living/bathing in your home, you may even consider adding a walk-in tub.
- Lightening it up – Another way to make your bathroom as comfortable and relaxing as possible can be brighten it up by refinishing the tile, adding a lighter coat of paint and/or adding ambient lighting around the room.

Bathrooms tend to be among the smaller rooms within homes, especially homes that were built some time ago. Just because the space in a bathroom may be limited, however, does not necessarily mean that the room has to feel small or claustrophobic.
In fact, if you take some time to think about the layout and features of your bathroom (when setting up the space or redesigning it), you can make the most of a smaller space while adding comfort and sophistication to it.
Open Up a Small Bathroom Space By…
Replacing a cabinet sink with a pedestal sink – Sinks areas can consume a lot of space in smaller rooms, so consider condensing the sink’s footprint by taking out cabinet sinks and replacing them with a pedestal sink. If you need the cabinet storage space, you can add in shelving (preferably in a hall outside of the bathroom so you don’t eat up the space you are trying to open up).
- Incorporating ambient lighting – Softer ambient lighting can open up smaller spaces, especially those that may get little to no light via windows/natural sources. So, consider replacing overhead lights with a few wall scones to light the room.
- Making your shower curbless – The edge of a shower can abruptly cut off the feel of space in a bathroom. If possible, consider replacing showers that have curbs around them with a curbless variety to open up the floor and feel of the room.
- Adding frameless mirrors – Taking the frames off of mirrors is another way to create the illusion of more space in a bathroom. You may even want to replace small circular mirrors with broader, square mirrors that have no frames to maximize the effect.
- Revitalizing the tub and tile – Is the tile and/or tub in the bathroom dingy, stained or damaged? If so, refinishing the tub and tile is another great way to open up the look and feel of a bathroom while breathing new life into it.

With fall upon us and teens heading off to college, new empty nesters may be left feeling a little restless – and they may be looking for ways to refresh and reclaim some space in their homes, like their kid’s old bathroom.
The great news is that empty nesters don’t have to break the bank to update and modernize their kid’s former bathroom(s). In fact, they can save a lot of time, money and stress by going the no-demolition route and refinishing the tub and tiling, rather than doing a full-blown renovation.
Benefits of Refinishing
Believe it or not, the look of a bathtub and surrounding tile can really revitalize (or bring down) the overall look of a bathroom. By refinishing the surface of broken, worn down and/or stained tubs and tiling, the damaged surfaces of the majority of the bathroom can be repaired, giving them the look (and feel) of a new bathroom.
What can be just as great as the outcomes of tub and tiling refinishing is the fact that, when you go the refinishing route, you can also benefit from:
- Cost savings – Refinishing is only a fraction of the cost that a full-blown renovation, including a new tub and new tiling, would be.
- Time savings – Refinishing tile and a tub will usually only take a few days at most. This means that you will deal with minimal inconvenience as you modernize the bathroom and that you can start using your new bathroom ASAP.
This help you extend your renovation dollars further – maybe even allowing you to make some updates to other areas of your home that you may want to modernize.
Compliment Refinishing with Some Final Touches
After refinishing the tub and tiling in a bathroom, here are a few other things you can do to add some final touches and really revitalize the space:
- Add a fresh coat of paint to the walls.
- Replace the old outlet covers and fixtures.
- Add new lighting features and/or window dressings.
