Replace the Tub With a Walk-In Shower

If you have a large bathtub that doesn't get used much, replace it with a walk-in shower. Not only will it look more luxurious, it's more practical. And a simple, clear glass partition will make the room feel bigger.

Change the Lights

New lighting can give an old room a fresh look. New pendants in front of the mirror will reflect light around the room and make the space brighter. A hanging fixture or chandelier above the tub or in the center of the room can add a spark of personality.

Re-Tile the Shower

Re-tiling a shower is a great way to take a dated bathroom into the 21st century without making any structural changes. You can't go wrong with classic white subway tile or luxe white marble. On a budget? You may be able to find some bargains at salvage yards or online resale communities such as Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace.

Tile the Walls

Tile isn’t just for the shower. A wall of tile behind the vanity looks super chic, and it’s easy to clean! White subway tile is a timeless choice, but if you want something more trendy, try hexagons for a chic honeycomb look.
