Scrub Everything!

This may seem like a no-brainer but the first step to a bright and beautiful bathroom is to clean every nook and cranny! A good scrub will do wonders for the bathroom.

Upgrade the Lighting

Replace old lighting fixtures with a more current style. Make sure you choose a lighting fixture that brightens up your bathroom. Ambient lighting is pretty but can make your bathroom feel dingy and dirtier than it actually is. If you don’t need to change out the fixture at least upgrade to brighter and more efficient light bulbs.
