No doubt you’ve noticed how different modern bathrooms look these days – it’s hard not to envy the lavish lighting, elegant appointments and luxury bath fixtures you so often see in the pages of the better home décor magazines or on the popular home makeover television programs. It can be discouraging when you are faced with a mundane bathroom and not much of a budget but with some savvy shopping you can actually update any bathroom without breaking the bank.

There are some things you will need to live within any bathroom – the bath fixtures and vanities are the sorts of things you would only address with a major remodeling but you can still work with what you have and make it better. Update a dated vanity by replacing the bathroom hardware with new drawer pulls or knobs; install a handheld showerhead to modernize a dated tub or shower. A freestanding heated towel rack can add a touch of elegance and luxury and you will enjoy surrounding yourself in a hot fluffy towel after a bath or shower.
