DIY Projects To Transform Your Bathroom for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is when we have the chance to show our mothers how much we appreciate them. For those struggling with what to do for mom this year, try the bathroom. The bathroom is one of the most neglected rooms in the house, but it is one where we spend the most time. This Mother’s Day, give mom the gift of a homemade spa. 

Upgrade the Shower


A weak or leaky shower head can bring the whole feel of the bathroom down. Luckily this is an easy and inexpensive upgrade. It is a great DIY project perfect for anyone looking to give mom a spa day for Mother’s Day this year. A new showerhead does not only help the aesthetic of the bathroom, but a different type can make the spa experience more authentic as well. 

Rain showers are very affordable but offer a luxurious experience any mom will love. These rain showers range from a simple showerhead to a whole system dedicated to the experience. Anyone can find something within their budget. 

Switch up the Fixtures or Tiling

    • Faucets: A new bathroom faucet is the fastest and simplest way to give any bathroom a facelift. Switching out for a more modern look can give a bathroom a completely new look and even improve the efficiency of water usage. It is an incredibly affordable project that makes mom love her bathroom and adds value to the home. 
    • Sinks: A new bathroom sink does not have to be completely new to give the bathroom a great look. A new vanity or fun wallpaper can tie the sink into the decor. If the sink sticks out, a paint job is always an inexpensive and simple option. If a completely new sink is necessary, call a professional for easy installation and make sure mom loves the new look. 
  • Walls and floors: Retiling the bathroom floor sounds like a daunting task, but it is actually simple. The supplies are affordable, and there are multiple tutorials to follow. This is a more drastic way, and definitely, something mom will appreciate. 

Smart Lights Set the Mood

Smart lights offer an option to choose the type of lighting in the bathroom, which mom will appreciate when doing her hair and makeup. Be careful, though, and do not let the amount of lighting overpower the space. Smart lights can also dim and change color for an even more luxurious experience.

Of course, for homeowners looking for some advice or help with these upgrades, consulting a local plumbing company can help. Their experts should be able to customize and install all those bathroom upgrades, giving moms everywhere the dream bathroom and relaxation spot they’ve always wanted.
