There’s a couple of steps involved when redoing your bathroom. For starters, you’re going to begin by gutting the room. Remove everything. This includes what’s inside the cabinets, under the sink, above the toilet and anything else you have in there. Make sure to also scrub and wash the bathroom from floor to ceiling. Pay special attention to vents, cracks, and seams along the edges of tiles or around the base of the toilet, using a utility knife to remove any bad caulk found. Inspect everywhere for colored caulk, dirt, mold, scum, or mineral deposits.
Clean until it shines.
Color design is next on the list. It’s time to paint your walls the color you selected to update the room. Also, repaint your baseboards with a fresh coat of paint, color of your choosing. For most, you’ll want to spray paint your white plastic moisture fan so that it is fresh and white, the classic look for moisture fans. Replace your floor vent covers as well if it looks like they have any pitting or rust.
To finish up you’ll want to update the old vinyl flooring. Many 90s bathrooms have easy-to-install floor tiles that look like stone – creating a much more modern feel. Then apply some fresh caulk along the edges of tubs and showers. It’d also be a good idea to remove a wall-mounted mirror and replace it with a framed mirror that is centered over the sink.
All that’s next would be the decor! Add new artwork and color coordinated linens and accent pieces in fresh new colors.
