This week, Keepe offers a look at 5 perfect bathroom upgrades for your rental property.
No. 1 – Install a shower door
Instead of a shower curtain, a shower door can immediately upgrade any bathroom. Shower doors can make your bathroom seem more modern and up-to-date. When it comes to durability, shower doors are a must. They last longer because of stain resistance, ease of cleaning, and prevention of bacteria growth.
No. 2 – Install tile around the tub
Tiling around the walls of a tub can help with water- and stain-resistance. It can also add a pop of color to any bathroom to make the room seem more cohesive and fresh. There are many different types of tile to choose from, the most popular being porcelain due to its water resistance.
No. 3 – Install a bathroom vent fan
Steam from your showers can cause stuffy bathrooms and, eventually, unwanted mold on the walls. To eliminate this, try adding a vent fan to the ceiling of the bathroom. The vent will help with the excess moisture in the room and give it a more upgraded look.
No. 4 – Add extra storage
Any bathroom can use extra storage space. Cabinets, drawers and shelves are handy for all kinds of storage and can add value to your bathroom. Depending on what materials you choose, you can add highlights of color to keep the look cohesive and current. These days, medicine cabinets with mirrored sliding doors are a good-to-go storage solution for any bathroom.
No. 5 – Improve the lighting
The quality of lighting in a bathroom can turn a good bathroom into a great one. Vanity lighting around the mirror is a great option; it helps illuminate faces for grooming. A common mistake is to put lights on the ceiling above the mirror, which can cause unwanted shadows on the face. In addition to vanity lighting, a central fixed ceiling light can be used as a substitute for natural light. When it comes to choosing bulbs, a daylight bulb is best for making the room seem more open and natural.
