The vanity is a focal point of the bathroom. With this in mind, simply updating or upgrading this fixed piece to the room can give it an entirely new dynamic.
With a little bit of extra time, anyone can throw in some high-quality flooring options that are simple to put together (even with no experience at all). This flooring will give the entire room a new look, even with older vanities, showers and tubs.

These are a few weekend projects that anyone can do to liven up the look of a bathroom. Consider these tips as you ponder which choice (or all of them) could improve the aesthetic appeal of this high-traffic room in the house.
