In this surprise bathroom makeover reveal for my in-laws, I’m showing you how to give your builder grade bathroom a makeover without a major remodel.
I always say paint changes things. And it’s true, it does! Anytime I get the chance to cover up a dull beige/taupe colored bathroom, I take it! Although the color of this bathroom was not horrendous, I knew I wanted to paint this bathroom anyway. I wanted to go with a lighter color because the beige/taupe color of this bathroom was not giving off a vibrant, welcoming vibe. It was very dull especially with the black cabinets in the same space.
As you can see, painting the bathroom walls and the bathroom cabinets really transformed the way this bathroom looks and feels. It gives off a luxe, bright and airy feeling. The color on the walls is called On Point by Clare paint. And the color for the cabinets is called Whipped, also by Clare paint.
Before, the bathroom had the rectangle mirrors which is a classic builder-grade bathroom mirror. They put it in every bathroom of every builder-grade home. Switching your mirrors is key to having a different look. I purchased these brass gold round mirrors from Hobby Lobby. Originally the price was about $129, but Hobby Lobby had a 50% off sale, so I was able to get 2 mirrors for the price of 1. If you don’t want to swap our your mirror, you can use something called mirror trim which is super easy to use, I used it in this bathroom makeover and it transformed the space tremendously.
I swapped the lighting in this bathroom after deciding to change out the mirrors. At this point, it was necessary. I purchased these amazing lights from amazon and they were the perfect detail for this bathroom. The bar light was as basic as lights can come.
To tie all the gold together in this bathroom, I used brass hardware for the cabinets. It made sense after the mirror, the lighting, the final touch of the brass hardware against the white cabinets made everything pop and helped to finish making this builder grade bathroom now feel like a luxuriously customized master bathroom.
I saved the best for last, although it’s technically the first step toward making a space feel transformed. Declutter. This means throwing out things that no longer serve you or your needs as well as getting rid of excess. It allows a lighter feeling in your home overall which is amazing. I did declutter under my bathroom sink you can read more about that post here.
As you can see, this builder-grade bathroom looks completely transformed without major remodeling or renovations.
