Give old tiles a new life
Nearly a quarter of homeowners reported budgeting for a bathroom remodels last year, with the national average cost of doing so at around $9,723, according to the HomeAdvisor survey. If outdated tile work is bugging you, you don’t have to drop thousands of dollars to get an updated look.
Trudel-Payne suggests adding peel and stick tiles right over your existing ones. Otherwise, you can even paint them. “Tile stencils provide an easy-to-follow guide to paint right over every tile you have always hated,” he says. Just make sure to use tile paint or spray paint for the best coverage and durability, he adds.
