If you are tired of the way that your bathroom looks, now is the time to make a change. However, you might not have the cash on hand to hire a remodeling contractor to come out and remodel your bathroom right now.
This doesn't mean that you have to continue living with a bathroom that you hate. There are a lot of tasks that you can do yourself, and some of them can be done very cheaply and relatively quickly. One great way to get started is with your bathroom vanity, since it is probably the main focal point in the room. These are a few things that you can do to it right now to make it look great.
1. Give it a New Paint Job
If your cabinets are in fairly good condition, there is no reason to replace them just because you don't like the way they look. Instead, consider giving your bathroom vanity a new paint job. You can use any regular latex paint, but make sure that you clean your vanity well and first use a latex primer. Make sure that you only use this paint on your cabinets and not actually on your countertops, however. If you want to paint your countertops, you will need to head to your favorite home improvement store to look for a paint that is designed for this purpose.
2. Buy New Hardware
If the hardware on your bathroom vanity is unsightly or old, it's time for an upgrade. You can buy new knobs and handles at any home improvement store, but take your time to find pieces that will really stand out. Then, simply use a screwdriver to remove the screws that hold your existing hardware on your cabinets and drawers. To ensure that the new hardware that you buy will fit, consider removing your handles first and taking one with you so that you can look for options that will fit. Then, your new pieces should screw on easily.
3. Install a New Sink Faucet
Once a sink faucet becomes old, it can become impossible to clean. Plus, an old faucet can make your bathroom look extremely outdated. You can buy a new one from mass market retail stores and from home improvement or hardware stores. Your faucet should include installation instructions that you can handle yourself with a few simple tools.
As you can see, you can give your bathroom vanity a whole new look in just one day without the need to hire a pro. Try one or all three of these ideas to make your bathroom vanity look fantastic.

Hi and thanks for visiting my website. My name is Bob. I am 32 years old and single. And like many of you, I am barely making ends meet on my own. That's why I decided to create this website. I've run into a few plumbing problems in my home, and in order to save money, I found some remedies that I could do myself, rather than calling a plumber. I decided to share these secrets with you, as well as tell you when a plumber is absolutely needed. I hope my website helps all of you do-it-yourselfers when it comes to fixing your plumbing.
