Give That Dated Bathroom a Facelift

Give That Dated Bathroom a Facelift

By Shannon Weissleder
Don’t let dated bathrooms scare you. Give that dated bathroom a facelift! They are fairly easy and inexpensive to update. We easily transformed this “pink lady” into a modern bathroom with tons of style.

Update Your Flooring

First, we simply updated the flooring with sheet vinyl that resembles vintage hexagon tiles in a neutral tone. We installed the flooring in about an hour for only about $150.

Change Out Your Fixtures

Then, we replaced the pink vessel sink with a small floating vanity ordered online, which gives the illusion of more space since it doesn’t take up any floor space. For just $200, a white, low flow toilet replaced the old high-water toilet. When the new mirror arrives, it will be installed over the sink. The brass medicine cabinet was donated.

Give New Life to the Cast Iron Tub

Finally, we hired a company to refinish the old cast iron tub for $400. The old cast iron tubs are the just the best because they retain heat better than new bathtubs. Voila! Now we have a new bathroom with vintage charm minus the rose hue.
