How to renovate a bathroom without works?

No debris and virtually no dust. While it is true that some changes involve more “fuss”, they are not to create a tremendous mess. The ones that take the most work are to paint the tiles, cover them with leveling compound in case you want to smooth the wall to place wallpaper or change the floor for one installed over the old one. But because the surfaces in which to work are larger than the rest of the ideas that give us to reform the bathroom with hardly any work. And still, we want you to know how to do it. This way you will know that it does not simply work as such (there is nothing to break).

The changes without works that more work can give you to renovate the bathroom

1. Paint the tiles. A ten-way to reform or renovate without work. Although you will have to invest in the product itself (the paint) and the plastics to cover the toilets, it does not work like pulling and reinstalling new tiles. You should clear the walls as much as possible and cover with plastic and painter’s tape everything that remains (from the toilet to any faucets or pipes that protrude from the wall). 

Next, you will have to clean thoroughly with specific cleaners, apply a primer depending on the material you use to paint tiles (and the color of these you are starting from), and paint with enamel or Authentic Chalk Paint.-which is specific to this-. Depending on the size of the bathroom, on a weekend you will have the job done. Then you will only have to wait for the total drying time to use the room.

2. Change the floor. It is much easier than you think thanks to vinyl flooring. They imitate all kinds of finishes (wood with a very realistic finish; hydraulic tile; cement imitation …), they are usually cut with a cutter -without the need for specific machinery-. 

You have them self-adhesive or in-click installation and they are placed on the existing floor. You will not make practically dust and you have nothing to break to enjoy a renewed image of the bathroom. It is an express change that will be ready in one day. With the same type of material, you should know that you can hide the wall tiles. There are even vinyl tiles suitable for shower areas that do not let water enter through the joints.

Professional’s first idea to reform without work: The mirror

Paint a frame around it or make a nice and original frame with molding. It will not look the same!”. And it is that to renovate the bathroom without works, focus in the washbasin cabinet it is a success. It usually occupies a privileged or central place so it has a lot to do with our perception of the environment. In addition, opting for a mirror with a different style to the one that predominates provides a lot of personality.

“If what you want is to replace it, move one of the mirrors in your house and incorporate that into the bathroom. You will see what a change,”. Getting a new one is also a controlled investment, but if it is to reuse, apply this idea, recover a mirror that someone is going to throw away, just renew the molding of another …

The washbasin cabinet

There is much to say about this element and everything will be noticed in the bathroom renovation. From not getting rid of what you have, but transforming it; to dedicate your budget. “If the one you have fits you because of measurements, storage, and the design you like or it is simply not the time to change it, a coat of paint is a great solution,”.

If you also replace the handles, you will have a new piece of furniture for very little. And if with paint you can achieve a big change, with a little more budget you can also opt for vinyl (there are plain colors, marble print, imitation wood, terrazzo …). Adding legs to furniture is also a good option.
