After. The patterned floor tile inspired the rest of the bathroom you see here. She updated the tub, shower, wall paint and vanity countertop, and splurged on a beaded chandelier.

When that’s the case, a surface-level bathroom remodeling can give you the feel of a whole new bathroom, without the price tag. It’s a great project to take on if you don’t have the budget for a complete overhaul just yet. The rule of thumb to follow here is, ”Cover, don’t replace.”
