With each new year, many homeowners feel the need to give their space a fresh start. Whether it's purging items you no longer need or your goal is to fully renovate to update the style of your home, it helps to take baby steps as you strive to reach your goals. 

 

Here are five bathroom remodels from a few of our favorite designers and bloggers to inspire your next project.

1. MAKE BUDGET-FRIENDLY UPGRADES

You don't have to complete a head-to-toe makeover to give your bathroom a little more personality. Designer Nicole Gibbons takes her client's builder-grade guest bath from boring and a little unflattering to polished and stylish by simply updating the bathroom's hardware. A project like this can be completed with ease in a single afternoon.

2. TRY SOMETHING BOLD

The bathroom is the perfect space to try something new and a little out of your comfort zone. That's exactly what these homeowners did when they opted for a deep green that covered every surface instead of their first choice - white. We love that they painted the trim the same color, making the space look even larger.

3. ADD THE FINISHING TOUCH

Maybe your bathroom could benefit from one more detail that ties the entire room together. Consider swapping your door hardware for a style and finish that better reflects your personal style. It's an affordable project that any DIY skill level can accomplish. We love Amanda's - from the Fashionable Hostess - choice of door hardware. The Birmingham lever with Wakefield trim gives her bathroom a subtle touch of sophistication that completes her crisp and clean space.

4. CREATE FUNCTIONAL BUT STYLISH STORAGE

Open shelving isn't just for the kitchen. Show off your cutest bathroom necessities and keep things a little more organized with this trendy update. Get the full details on the entire bathroom remodel from making it in the mountains.

5. FOCUS ON THE DETAILS

Even the smallest details can take your bathroom style up a notch. We love how Jenny of the Little Green Notebook took inspiration from other architectural details in the home to give a boring vanity a little more character. It's a tiny detail that makes a big impact.
