A fresh coat of paint can be an affordable way of neutralising or modernising a bathroom and what many people don’t realise is that you can paint much more than the bathroom walls.
Had enough of those retro coloured tiles or that old salmon pink bathtub? If they are in good condition they can be resurfaced in a brand new colour of your choosing to help make your entire bathroom look and feel like new again.
How does bathroom resurfacing work?
Bathroom resurfacing is essentially adding a new surface over an existing one and it is a relatively affordable way to improve the look of a bathroom. Resurfacing kits can be bought from hardware stores allowing people to DIY, however for the best results it is often recommended to leave resurfacing to the experts.
What can be resurfaced?
It’s possible to resurface almost any surface commonly found in bathrooms such as basins, wall tiles, showers, baths, toilets and bench tops. A range of different materials can be refinished including tiles, porcelain, vitreous enamel, ceramic, metals and laminates.
Is resurfacing for you?
If you’re looking for a way to do a quick and affordable renovation to your bathroom then resurfacing is an option worth looking into. The overall benefit of resurfacing your bathroom will likely depend on the bathroom’s current condition and the existing bathroom colours.
Costs to resurface a bathroom will vary depending on the amount of surfaces that need to be refinished, but it generally ends up considerably cheaper than having to buy new bathroom products such as vanities and bathtubs.
Resurfacing may not be something worth doing if you want a brand new bathroom that will satisfy your family for years to come, but it is a great way to create a fresh new look while you save up for bigger renovations or if you are sprucing up your property for sale.
