When you have a free weekend, make plans to spruce up your small bathroom. Here are the five small bathroom updates I undertook in my own home. From the before and after photos, you can see they turned out great.


1. New Facet

Above, you see my old bathroom vanity. It wasn’t bad, but it was pretty blah.

If you’re not ready to totally rip out your bathroom vanity, install a new counter top and dress it up with a new faucet. Faucets seem a bit intimidating to install, but within a couple of hours you can haven an entire new look to your bathroom!

If you’re working with a new counter top, it’s easier to install the faucet first and then install the countertop with the faucet installed.

 The wide shower head gives you the feeling of more water without using more water. A great shower experience is truly a luxury and with just a swap of a few fixtures you will feel the difference in no time!


3. Functional Hooks

Towel hooks are another way to make your bathroom more functional. Place hooks next to the shower so you have access to a towel or robe when you’re done with the shower. Drying of inside the tub leaves your floors clean and dry!


4. Pivet Toilet Paper Holder
