If you want to make over your bathroom, but don't want to undertake a full renovation, here are five things to do to make it look almost like new.


Go classic with white, create a spa retreat with soothing blues, or energize your space with orange or yellow tones. Look online or through décor magazines for a surge of inspiration


See yourself in the most flattering light with new light fixtures. New lighting is an easy way to update and modernize a space without gutting it. Just be sure to hire a professional if your plans involve any rewiring.


As with lighting, new faucets add style to your space with minimal effort. Although silver-toned faucets are the finish of choice among homeowners, brushed nickel and polished chrome are also popular choices.


Tie the look of the room together with blinds, shades, or curtains -- or a combination of these options. Choose bold colors to add a pop of color to the room or keep it neutral. Whatever you choose, make sure that it complements the overall theme or style of the room.


Add style and function with new accessories. If you'd like more storage, add a wall cabinet or storage tower, or re-purpose an unused storage unit from around the home. Install a new mirror or towel rack to enhance the look of the room. Buy new rugs to complement the new color scheme, and add color or texture with vases, wall décor or similar items.
