Whether you’re about to put your house on the market or you’re just ready for a change, you might be surprised by how many low-effort, high-impact bathroom upgrade options are out there. Bathroom upgrades have a reputation for being time-consuming and costly, but the projects below couldn’t be easier! Here are some of our favorite bathroom upgrade ideas that can be finished in one day.
Walk-in showers are popping up everywhere lately, and it’s easy to see why! If you only use your bathtub as a shower anyway, why not take it out and make your bathroom look more open and spacious? A glass door and subway tile-style shower surround wall will take your bathroom from outdated to on-trend in a single day if you choose Bath Fitter for the installation. You won’t have a mess to clean up afterwards and your bathroom won’t be out of commission for days or weeks!
Do you have a builder grade bathroom vanity? Maybe it’s that orange shade of oak that was everywhere in the 90s, or perhaps it’s just seen better days after years of use. You might think tearing it out is your only option for updating it, but have you considered painting it instead? This might be a day-and-a-half kind of project, but we promise it’s worth it. Rough up the finish a bit with sandpaper, prime it, and use two coats of glossy paint. Swap the drawer pulls with something more modern and you’ll be shocked how different your bathroom looks when it’s all done.
At Bath Fitter, we specialize in updating grubby, dirty, and outdated tubs. Whatever the problem, we have the solution! Instead of dealing with the expense and hassle of removing your old bathtub and installing a brand new one, Bath Fitter fits a new bathtub liner and surround wall over your old one. Believe it or not, our installation process only takes one day to complete, but it can completely transform the look and feel of your bathroom.
If you have a builder grade vanity, you’re likely to have a builder grade mirror—a big, unadorned rectangle affixed to the wall above the sink. Instead of buying an expensive new mirror, purchase picture frame molding at your local home improvement store and use that to frame out your old mirror. Stain or paint the molding to match your bathroom, cut it to size, and use a strong glue to attach it to the mirror.
If your light fixtures and faucets are also stuck in the 90s, that’s another simple one-day bathroom upgrade to make. Switch them all out to more modern fixtures to elevate the look of your bathroom.
Vinyl planks are a popular option for bathrooms, but there are also thinner peel-and-stick floor tiles that can be placed right over your old floor tile in a single afternoon. They’re thin enough that you can trim them to size with a box cutter, but they have the durability to last in a bathroom. If you want to update your bathroom flooring without investing a lot of time and money, these tiles are the way to go.
