Giving your bathroom a makeover doesn’t have to cost thousands of dollars or weeks of intensive labor. Updating finishes, from the tub surface and tile color to cabinet hardware or the toilet, can retrofit an outdated bathroom to modern tastes for hundreds instead of thousands of dollars.

“Remodeling your bathroom can be overwhelming, but it can also be one of the best returns on investment," said Angie Hicks, founder of Angie's List. "You can get up to 85 return on the investment, but you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars. You can do some simple upgrades like changing that pink tile or blue tile to a more neutral color or update the handles on your cabinets to make the bathroom more modern."
