When it comes to selling a home, bathrooms are important. Prospective home buyers always look carefully over the bathrooms when touring a home. However, it is only when people are buying or selling a home that they ever really think about the design elements of the bathroom. And from a seller’s perspective, why do a full makeover on that space when it is almost time to move out? It can be expensive and tricky to renovate a bathroom completely, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t make a few small updates on your own! Updating the bathroom fixtures is an easy and affordable way to breathe new life into your space and give your bathroom the extra polish it needs to sell.
10 affordable bathroom fixtures that will give your bathroom some added style!
To help you, we’ve made a list of bathroom fixtures that can be easily updated and will breathe new life into the space.
Fullen Mirror with Shelf, Ikea
The bathroom mirror can be the centerpiece of the room, though it is an object that is rarely given much thought. This mirror from Ikea is a sleek and minimalist option that will integrate seamlessly into any room. Plus, it has a handy little shelf on which you can store items you use frequently, like soap, makeup or shavers. Right now, the Fullen mirror is a steal right now at $9.99.
Nissedal Mirror, Ikea
One of the more dramatic bathroom fixtures is the Nissedal black framed mirror . The unusual square shape gives it a modern touch, while the dark frame adds a little glamour. However, the design is still simple enough to match any room without disrupting the design elements that are already there. The Nissedal mirror is currently $19.99.
Richelieu Beaded Knob, Bed Bath & Beyond
Another detail that can pack a punch, but is often overlooked, is the drawer and cabinet knob. The Richelieu beaded knob is great if you are looking to add elegant details. The understated, though unusual, color options (Antique English and Copper) will stand out without clashing with your current color scheme. Each of these gorgeous knobs goes for $2.99.
Richelieu Bar Pull Cabinet Drawer Hardware, Bed Bath & Beyond
For a more modern option, try a bar pull rather than a knob. The style is effortless, straightforward, practical and perfect for universal appeal! The Richelieu Bar Pull comes in brushed nickel or oil rubbed bronze, and are $4.99 apiece.
GlideRite Lincoln Towel Bar, Wayfair
Have you given a thought to your towel bar lately? More than likely, that answer is a resounding “no”. And if you have given it a thought, it is likely that thought was that your towel bar was less than appealing. No matter, GlideRite has you covered with an understated but stylish replacement in its Lincoln collection. The polished chrome and oil rubbed bronze options are both $19.99 and the brushed nickel option is slightly over our price cap at $21.99.
AquaSource Kirkmont Centerset Bathroom Faucet, Lowes
Sometimes all it takes is a new faucet. Old faucets can get stained with hard water marks and/or dull over time. A new, bright, clean faucet can make all the difference. This brushed nickel faucet is highly recommended as well as highly affordable, and the graceful design adds a touch of elegance. Get it at Lowes for $17.60.
GlideRite Lincoln Towel Ring, Wayfair
Also from the GlideRite Lincoln collection (so you can match your hardware, if you like), comes the Lincoln Towel Ring. Like the towel bar, the design is modern and simple. The polished chrome option is $17.99, the brushed nickel is $18.99, and the oil rubbed bronze comes in at $19.99.
Moen Glyde Towel Ring, Wayfair
Another Wayfair find is the Glyde collection by Moen. This towel ring is delightfully unusual, yet sleek, and will stand out to any prospective home buyer. The rest of the collection is similarly stylish, should you choose to pursue it. The towel ring comes in two colors; the polished chrome option is $13.06 and the brushed nickel is $19.88.
Lillholmen Wall Lamp, Ikea
And of course, lighting. Light fixtures can become dated surprisingly quickly, so a classic and simple style is always the way to go. This wall sconce option from Ikea can be styled facing up or hanging down and will add an interesting detail to the bathroom. This nickel plated option is $14.99.
Volume Lighting 4-Light Bath and Vanity Light, Home Depot
This brushed nickel light set will brighten and add some Hollywood brilliance to any space. It is a timeless style that suggests glamour while also being very practical. This Volume Lighting set is $13.53 (G25 globe light bulbs not included, but can also be found at Home Depot for as little as $6.06 for a 6-pack).
