Maybe you have a room that looks a little tired, but you don't have the time or money for a complete remodel. This bathroom is a great example of how a little time and money can make a big impact! The owners had put in a new shower door and tile floor, but felt the rest still needed some help. The tile had to stay, and so did the vanity, but we can work around that!
I chose a light paint color that blended with the tiles but didn't contrast too much, because contrast highlights things, and we wanted to downplay the wall tile! Swapping out the light strip for a newer one and the builder-grade mirror for a more unique one were inexpensive fixes. The biggest bang for their buck: the vanity. It looks like oak in this picture, but it was actually just an oak-looking laminate that was showing some serious surface wear. It was still in decent shape, though (just ugly!), and would have been $$ to replace, so our solution was paint! I chose a modern neutral and suggested an appropriate paint to use in a bathroom, and they went to work. Just a quart of paint, some new hardware, and this vanity looks brand new! Oh, and that towel rack: spray paint!
