It’s important to spruce up or fully remodel your bathroom because materials can become damaged over time. Remodeling can also make your space more beautiful, comfortable, and functional. But it can seem overwhelming at first, so you may wonder where to start. Luckily, there are several bathroom remodeling ideas that are easy to implement that offer stunning results. Sometimes a simple bathroom remodel is best. You don’t always need to plan the most complex improvement projects for the effect to be impactful. Read on for five simple ideas to inspire your next bathroom remodel.

Change the Flooring

Often, flooring is the first area in a room to show wear. When it comes to the bathroom, the floor can become chipped, cracked, and watermarked, depending on the material that was used. One of the best things you can do when remodeling your bathroom is to change out the flooring. Consider choosing a tile that you love, then design the rest of the remodel around that element. There are so many kinds of tile that it’s one of the most versatile flooring options for your simple bathroom remodel.

Lighting is Important

When remodeling a bathroom you must take into account the lighting. Because the bathroom is often a place where people get ready in the morning and need to use the mirror, good lighting is important. Make sure that there’s enough lighting in the room and that it’s sufficiently bright. If you find you don’t have enough light in your bathroom, consider adding light fixtures as part of your simple bathroom remodel.

Refurbish and Refinish

Refurbishing and refinishing vintage fixtures and finishes is a great way to add personality to your space. Often, vintage items are one of a kind and won’t be found in any other home. You may be able to refinish and refurbish vanities, mirrors, cabinet hardware, and other elements to add a unique and elegant touch to your space.


Painting is often the easiest ways to change the look and feel of your bathroom. Repainting your walls a lighter shade can freshen things up and make it seem larger. Even if your bathroom is already white, repainting is a good way to change the look of a room. Over time, paint can become stained and water damaged. You may not even realize how dingy your walls are until you see how they look with a new coat of paint.

Wallpaper is a retro staple that’s quickly coming back into fashion. Choosing wallpaper for your bathroom is a great way to update its look. The right pattern can also make your bathroom more unique. Of course, in a very large space, wallpaper can be overpowering, but a bathroom is usually just the right size to experiment with printed paper. Consider wallpaper in light colors with delicate patterning. Additionally, wallpaper with metallic or subtle reflective elements can add an artistic element to your space.
