Improve Your Temecula Bathroom On A Budget

Buyers in Temecula love the lure of a fresh, attractive bathroom that reminds them of being in a luxury hotel or spa. But, in most instances, it is not a wise investment to do a full, costly renovation just for a home sale. It simply doesn’t translate into profit [more high ROI strategies to improve the value of your home]. A better strategy is to maximize what you already have, on a budget. Below we have broken down all the things you can do if you're living in Temecula to revamp your bathroom for a low budget of under $200. We have also included all the best opportunities in Temecula to help you along your way towards a beautiful and fresh, new bathroom to amaze Temecula homebuyers and impress your friends.

Make That Bathroom Shine

To start off you're going to want to clean up your bathroom somewhere along the way. Even before you consider taking out your credit card to make the big changes, you should first get out the old kitchen rag and get on your hands and knees to do some good ol' fashioned scrubbing. The best and most cost-effective way that we've found to do this is through the use of distilled white vinegar, which makes for an excellent natural cleaning solution, especially on smooth surfaces like acrylic that release stains easily.
Fill a spray bottle with a 50/50 water-vinegar solution and keep it on hand for routine bathroom cleaning tasks. Apply the vinegar liberally to completely cover the affected area. Lemon juice makes a fine alternative to vinegar if you happen to have some in the refrigerator.

High ROI Bathroom Items You Can Get In Temecula

When it comes to items that you can buy that will upgrade the look of your bathroom infinitely more than the cost that you end up actually paying for these items, the first things to consider purchasing are the small things you can get at a local Walmart or a Bed, Bath, and Beyond. Here are a few of these items:
  • Fresh towels - will set you back $20-$50 per towel. Buying at least two bath towels is advisable.
  • Bath rug - purchasing a bath rug that fits the overall theme and looks of the bathroom can make a big difference. Bath rugs complement the overall look of the room but take care not to draw too much attention to it by purchasing loudly colored rugs that make it stick out in an unattractive way. Remember a rug should complement the room, not become the center of attention.
  • A basket of scented candles with tightly rolled washcloths could be exactly what your Temecula bathroom needs. Even including a little plant in the room can add the little final touch that the room needs.

  • Shower curtains - shower curtains can make or break a room. So take care to purchase a shower curtain that fits the overall look and feel of the room.
  • Re-tile shower walls with earthy colors. Take a look at the example below.

Changing out the countertops will also give your bathroom a fresher feel to it that very often entices new buyers and wows visitors to your home. While blue might go well with a beachy oceanside home, ask your realtor or interior designer what color schemes would suit your home in Temecula. Check different colors you can choose to suit each individual room in your house. Changing out older faucets for some new shiny ones is like changing out the rims on your old '69 Chevy. It's an inexpensive way to bump up the appearance of your bathroom for minimal cost.
