One of the best ways to add value to your home is with a bathroom renovation. Not only do bathroom renovations typically recoup 60-70% of the cost at resale, but they also result in happier homeowners. The problem with renovating a bathroom is that it can be time consuming and disruptive. For busy homeowners, a total renovation may not be possible right now, but you still deserve to feel the satisfaction and joy of a freshly renovated bathroom. Luckily for you, there are a few quick bathroom renovation options that will boost your home value and give you that same satisfaction of a job well done.
5 Quick Bathroom Renovation Ideas
Update the Paint Job
By far, the simplest and quickest bathroom renovation idea is to update the paint job. Changing the color of a room has the power to change the entire feel. It’s also pretty easy, if you can stand and reach for a few hours, depending on the size of your bathroom. Don’t stop with the walls either; consider painting your vanity, medicine cabinet, and any other units in the bathroom. Not only does this enliven these pieces, making them feel brand new, but it also allows you to choose any color scheme under the sun.
If you’re doing this bathroom remodeling project, then it’s as simple as deciding on a color and a paint. Head on down to your local hardware store, grab a couple cans of paint and a drop cloth, and then get painting!
Upgrade Your Faucets, Fixtures, and Hardware
One of the quickest and easiest ways to revamp your bathroom is by changing out your faucets, fixtures, and hardware. This simple upgrade is both inexpensive and easy to do on your own. It’s amazing how much you can change the aesthetics of your bathroom just by changing out a faucet or two.
Get inspired by your new paint job and go find the perfect faucets, fixtures, and hardware to complete your new bathroom vibe. If you’re doing it yourself, then this quick bathroom renovation should only take 2 - 4 hours.

Change Out the Lighting
Another easy remodeling project for your bathroom is to change out the lighting. There are so many beautiful, eccentric, and unique lighting options for bathrooms, you’re sure to find something that suits you. You can also get creative with the lightbulbs, going with an incandescent style or even switching to smart bulbs.
Make sure that whenever you work with electrical units, you take every precaution. Turn off the bathroom in your circuit breaker to ensure you’re safe. This bathroom project only takes 1 - 3 hours to complete.
Install a New Toilet (or a Bidet!)
This project is a little more strenuous than the previous ideas, but it’s still simple enough to start and finish the project in just a few hours. Installing a new toilet in your bathroom will take a bit of elbow grease, but it’s a task that you and a helper could complete in under 4 hours. The first step is to choose your new toilet and, if you haven’t been keeping up with the current toilet market, prepare to get excited.
Some Toilet Features to Consider Include:
Soft close, ensuring you never hear another slammed toilet lid at 2 in the morning ever again.
Lighted seats so you won’t have to turn on the lights during your late night bathroom visit and because it looks really cool.
Heated seats, because why not? Seriously though, you don’t know what you’re missing.
Bidet seats, because you deserve to have every luxury.
All in all, installing a new toilet in your bathroom will only take 2 - 4 hours. You’ll immediately love the decision that you made.
Replace Your Flooring and Tile Work
Another relatively easy way to give your bathroom a facelift is by replacing your flooring and tilework. I know what you’re thinking, but changing out your tiles is easier than you think, as long as you have the right tools. If you have a small bathroom, then you can definitely finish the job in under a day.
Decide on a design or pattern to go with, one that accents the color of the walls, to bring the whole room together. If everything goes smoothly, you’re looking at a 4 - 8 hour job for a small bathroom. Larger bathrooms could turn into a weekend project.
