These remodels will make a huge difference and can be done for under $1,000. 1. Update your lighting. Lighting is super important and a lot of bathrooms have old, outdated lighting. You can change the vanity light out on your own for about $100. If you have an electrician install the fixture for you, that will cost around $200. Oil-rubbed bronze and satin nickel are popular choices for light fixtures right now. 2. Get a new faucet. Make sure you match the new light fixture. This update also costs around $100 for you to do on your own, or $200 if you hire a plumber. Home Depot, Menards, and Amazon are all great sources for a new faucet and light fixtures. 3. Pay attention to the flooring. Many homes have vinyl flooring, which can look great. You should be able to get a remnant at Menards or Home Depot for under $200, and we can put you in touch with installers who will update the bathroom floor for under $300. A new bathroom floor is a great way to create a fresh look. 4. Repaint the bathroom. A lot of people like to choose crazy or fun colors to enjoy while living in the home. However, when it comes time to sell, those colors can turn prospective buyers away. Pick out a popular color from the hardware store. Neutral grays are very popular right now. Paint your bathroom a neutral color, like a gray.If you aren’t sure which updates you should make or have trouble deciding what color to paint the bathroom, let us know. We have an interior designer on staff who can help you update your home and prepare it for the market.   Ultimately, you should be able to take care of those remodels for less than $1,000. If you want to sell your home, you could get a $3,000 return on investment, which is pretty good. If you have any other questions about updating your home or preparing it for the market, give us a call. We do quite a few flips and home improvement projects, so we would be happy to help you!
