Bathroom Upgrades Using Overlays
If you're considering a bathroom update, you're probably familiar with the typical approaches,such as replacing a counter top or toilet, or removing all the fixtures and finishes to completea floor-to-ceiling renovation.However, there is another, far less expensive way to make anolder bathroom look brand new: using overlays. An overlay is simply a new surface applied over an existing one. For example, instead of replacing an old and worn bathtub – which is costly – you can purchase an overlaysystem (called a tub liner) that fits on top of the existingbathtub. It's a little like giving your tub a facelift! You can do the same thing with your bathroom counter top sand floors. Overlays come in a wide variety of styles and finishes – some of which can make your bathroom look significantly more upscale. Compared to a major renovation, the installation of overlays is relatively straight forward. A tub liner installation, for example, can be done in a day.You can learn more about overlays at your local home improvement centre and at specialty bathroom showrooms.
