If your entryway has enough space, you can easily repurpose a dresser from a flea market for some extra storage. It can even be painted to match your decor.
Brighten Your Bath
One of the easiest improvements is re-caulking the shower or tub. This protects your investment and it also makes the entire room feel revived. If your tub area is worn and dull than it can be refinished. If you didn’t already know, most tubs can be refinished and ready for same-day use.
Robe hooks and towel bars can be added near the shower and tub to make it less damp in your bathroom. If you’re still looking to spruce the area up, you can even add a new shiny shower head. Big rain-styled heads are becoming more popular each day and they’re a great addition to any bathroom at a good price. They also use less water so you’ll also save some extra on the bills.
