Have Company Coming This Week? A Few Ways To Quickly Redo Your Bathroom

If you have company coming for a visit, you want your home to look its best. When it comes to the bathroom, this is often the room that has been most neglected. You have kept it clean and tried to keep it decluttered, but may not have done much else to it. If you groan a bit when you realize how out of date the room is, it is time to do a quick remodel. Here are just a few things that can be done in a few days on a budget.


It is amazing how a little paint can change the feel of a room. When you have the bathroom painted, be sure to consider having the counters done too. You may even want to paint the sink itself. Go with a  color that will complement any tile that surrounds the tub or is on the floor. Think about a theme that will go with the tile colors and go with it.

Toilet Seat and Accessories

Something as innocent as a toilet seat can make a big difference if you have a small powder room. Make sure the seat is bolted on correctly and does not move around when someone sits on it. You can choose the color of the seat, the material, and the shape. If you chose a new theme, make sure the seat fits in with it. Now match the towels, wastebasket, and any other accessories to bring the whole room together.


The lighting in a bathroom is important. People use the room for hygiene and grooming and need to be able to see what they are doing. You can easily have the bowls changed around the light bulbs. It is also easy for a contractor to completely change the light fixture to match your new theme. You may want to have a second set of lights installed that can be dimmed or brightened as needed.

Do not let an out of date bathroom embarrass you when company comes to visit. The room is small, but it can have a big impact on how your home is viewed. Luckily, the size means it is easy and not too expensive to remodel. If you are lost for ideas, look in magazines, online, or at a hardware store. All of the work can be accomplished in one day, so even if the company is unexpected, the odds are good you will have time to fix things up. Of course, you can always just have it remodeled for your own enjoyment.
