The price tag for bath renovations can add up quickly, but there are plenty of ways to create a fresh, updated look for less.
MOBILE, Ala. (PRWEB) August 21, 2018
Form and function are important in today’s homes. That’s why home improvement expert and host of “Today’s Homeowner,” Danny Lipford, launched a national media event today to share ways homeowners can improve both the aesthetics and functionality of the most used room in the house – the bathroom.
Lipford showcased a bathroom project he recently completed for an episode of his nationally syndicated television show, “Today’s Homeowner.” “Bathroom updates continue to be one of the most popular home improvement projects for homeowners,” says Lipford. “The price tag for bath renovations can add up quickly, but there are plenty of ways to create a fresh, updated look for less.”
Broadcasting live from a home in Mobile, AL, Lipford kicked off the event with a tour of the “before” bathroom. He pointed out several areas that homeowners often want to address in renovations, including:
- Optimizing the space
- Replacement of dated flooring and lighting
To open up the space, Lipford removed a large, center linen cabinet to make room for a new double vanity, increasing the functionality of the room. Demolition is a key area where homeowners can save on renovations according to Lipford. As a budget-friendly alternative to vanity replacement, Lipford suggested adding a new faucet and hardware to achieve a modern, updated look. He showed viewers a great option from Danze by Gerber’s Vaughn Collection, which the homeowners selected for their bathroom makeover.
Next, he offered homeowners another way to save big on bathroom renovations – repairing rather than replacing. New toilets can cost hundreds of dollars. Instead of buying new, Lipford recommended using a Performax All-In-One Repair Kit from Fluidmaster to replace the existing toilet’s interior mechanism. At a cost of about $20, this kit helps an existing toilet operate more efficiently at a fraction of the cost for something new.
Lipford wrapped up the media event suggesting additional budget-friendly bathroom updates:
- Replace bath fixtures such as paper holder, towel bar and hooks
- Add moulding to an existing mirror to create a custom, high-end look
- Paint the room a light color help the room feel larger
- Scrape/remove existing popcorn ceiling texture
- Add decorative light switches and plates
- Add crown moulding
During the media event, sponsored by Danze by Gerber and Fluidmaster, Lipford connected with 25 television and radio hosts and a nationwide audience of more than 20 million viewers. A broadcast-ready clip with Lipford’s advice is available to the media. The complete step-by-step renovation of the featured bathroom will debut on “Today’s Homeowner” TV week of October 8.
