Posted by Bartlett Real Estate Group on Monday, February 22nd, 2021 at 3:10pm.

In the year 2020 we all spent a LOT of time at home. There was plenty of time to analyze every nook and cranny of your home and determine what updates you might like to make (if any). According to recent trends, the most common room that people want to renovate is… the bathroom! In the past year, bathroom remodels have become very popular and there are a handful of new trends out there that consumers are loving. Let’s take a deeper look at some easy updates you can make...


  1. Add a new mirror or replace an old one: Mirrors add light to your space and make the room feel larger. Easy to remove an old one and install a new one, changing out the mirror is a quick way to revitalize your bathroom! Pro tip: If you place the mirror on a wall opposite a window it will enhance the natural lighting in the room. 

  2. Replace tiles: Whether it’s the floor tiling, shower tiling, or backsplash, changing out the tiling in the bathroom can do wonders to make it feel like a fresh space. Fun tile patterns are very in right now. Check out the link below for some design inspiration!   https://www.housebeautiful.com/room-decorating/bathrooms/g3414/bathroom-tile-ideas/

  1. Update tile grout: If you don’t want to go through the whole process of removing the current tile and replacing it with a new design, renewing the grout in between tiles can give your space a facelift. The shower is most likely where you will want to replace if the current grout has been there for many years, but the floor might be a good idea too while you’re at it! Another option to replacing the grout is to simply clean it then paint over it with a grout pen. Makes for a nice DIY weekend project!

  2. Replace towel holders and other bathroom hardware: Installing new hardware is fairly easy and inexpensive! It’s easy to take your bathroom from old news to modern marvel with some updated hardware. 

  3. Paint it up: Fresh paint can go a long way. Whether you want to change the color of the walls or simply brighten up an existing color, fresh paint can give a bathroom new life.
