Bring New Life to Your Old Bathroom – Reglaze Your Tub

The bathroom is one of the easiest rooms to bring new life and style to. Often it is as simple as changing out the window dressings, shower curtain, towels and mats. A fresh coat of paint in a bright or light color can open up a tiny bathroom and make it look bigger.

However, there are times where it will take a bit more than just changing out the towels to make your bathroom look like it has been renovated. You do not have to go through the cost of a total renovation. You can sometimes incorporate the new towels and paint technique with another quick way to give an old bath new life. Here are some great bathroom ideas

You can reglaze your bathtub. You do not have to hire a contractor to demo the old one. Simply do the reglazing of the bathtub yourself. Just make sure you do your research first.

If you are a little new to bathroom DIYs, you can of course call a local contractor in to do the work. We know a great handyman Jay – this is his website here: This might only cost a few hundred dollars, but the results will be well worth it. You can increase the value of your home when your bathroom has been upgraded.

You just need to be careful when hiring someone. There are legitimate refinishing companies available in your area, but you want to check references and reviews before you hire them. Some companies claim to do professional refinishing work but the work they do is subpar and expensive.

If this is enough to renew your commitment to renovating your tub on your own you want to buy the items you need and set aside some time to do the work. Visit your local hardware or home improvement store. There you will find reglazing kits.

Choose a formula that will work for the type of bathtub you have. For example, you might have a fiberglass tub or an acrylic tub. Choose the right product and get ready to giving the room a whole new life.

These kits are pretty easy to figure out and most all come with detailed instructions. If you need additional help for tackling the job, there are many instructional videos available online, too.

Your first step will be to place drop clothes around the tub. Cover any areas that are not going to be worked on such as sinks or toilets, too. Next, make sure the tub’s surface is completely clean.

After this, you will apply the first solution. Sometimes this will be an acid. The acid will bore tiny holes into the surface so that the reglazing solution will penetrate the entire tub thoroughly. Some kits come with a primer for you to use first.

The next step is to use the refinisher or paint to coat the tub in the color you want. Finally, apply the hardener. The drying time takes about a day.

Give your bathroom a new look. Start from the tub and work your way to the rest of the room with the help of reglazing.</p
